  1. Ok, if that is true… then explain why Pixelmator and Pixelmator Pro, Acorn from Flyingmeat and others can export editable PSD files? Since day one they has been able to let you open and save Adobe files without any issue.
  2. Well, now I update the code. Just saving the file will get me the PSD editable!! Thanks

  4. Export your Affinity Photo file as a Print Ready PDF and go to Photopea.com and drop your file there, then just export the file as a PSD file and it will be editable. If you have Automator app or Keyboard maestro app you will be able to create a one click option for your files. In my case I created a folder with Automator that every file that I save there it will do all the process automatically. Hope that helps.
  5. What I meant was exporting all icons individually at a size of 500px x 500px each. This is what I did. 1. I create a square with the size for export, lock it and send it to the back of the page. 2. Inside export persona I used the squares to create the slices one by one in the same page. 3. save the Affinity designer doc as a template so the slices are also part of the doc. So now I can copy paste all icons and all of them will fit the pixel size space I create to export them. it was a very tedious work and took a long time to achieve. I think they need to fix the export Persona and let us copy paste the slices selection so we can do more and faster. Idk something like let us select all items and tweak the size of the slice and stuff like that. Anyway I delivered the icons and client is happy. Thanks a lot you help me to achieved this faster than I thought.
  6. @Old Bruce do you know how to select multiple items in export persona? I'm trying to select the 500 x 500 area but it seems I can't have it with transparency. The PNG have a white background.
  7. Friends, I'm using Affinity Designer 1.10.4 on a Mac Mini running Big Sur 11.6 and a client send me lots of icons to fix line width and size. When I open the file, I have 3 art boards full of icons. I'm trying to do the easy parts first and then go to the complex ones. In my mind set, all icons at a same height and width is a matter of selecting all and apply the correct size, right? I mean you can do that practically on any design app out there (Inkscape, Acorn, Vectornator, Pixelmator, Illustrator and many others) How can I do this in Designer?? I tried all the things that come to my mind with no success at all. Do I need to create a macro? Using a third party app like Keyboard Maestro? Any help or solution will be greatly appreciated to it.
  8. I use a Mac Mini M1 with Big Sur 11.6 and the latest version of Affinity Suite (Designer, Photo, and Publisher 1.10.4) With that being said, sometimes my fingers touch other keys when I'm designing like for example, I'm holding alt and shift to drag a symbol and duplicated keeping it in the same range and measurement right? Then I click without looking at the keyboard any key and then the whole window with all my art boards start moving in different ratio as if I wanted to rotate my area of work. In other cases I click on other key by mistake and suddenly all curves are raster! And I didn't know what I did!! Is these commands are a bug? Or I'm hitting some cool commands by mistake? Your help will be appreciated it!
  9. I know if they are ready to launch 2.0 all of us are ready to put out the money to upgrade. Affinity suite has been the software that bring again that excitement that Adobe used to bring back in the old days!
  10. That may be true in a 50/50 way. Photopea, pixelmator and others can export in editable PSD texts. So it’s not that Serif can’t do it. I think Affinity’s tools are still in version 1 for a reason. Adobe has been copying all of the amazing work that Serif has been doing and maybe that’s why Serif is holding on that feature. Affinity Suite is the only suite that is turning Adobe fans into quitting their Adobe-addiction and move to Affinity. Maybe they don’t want a legal battle with Adobe or they are flirting with Adobe to sell the engines and upgrade Adobe to other standards. The thing is they can do this in one night of code and it’s not happening because they don’t want it. Maybe they want to have a “one more thing” to version 2.0
  11. I ask because (if you watch the video attached) it doesn’t let me have all the slices individually. If I do that the export persona treats each slice as an independent file. I need all of them same size. Again, I managed to do that manually but I was expecting do a bulk in one click.
  12. But you need to name each color individually right? Or all of them name themselves automatically at output?
  13. I managed to find a way but it needs to named the files and export them manually... I'm pretty sure a better way to this all at once is available. CleanShot 2021-12-02 at 14.14.45.mp4
  14. Maybe is right in my face, but any help will be appreciated it. I've been doing Graphic Design since 1992 and since I let go Adobe software and went full Affinity Suite I'm learning how to do stuff faster than never in my life! For example, when a client wants an EPS or illustrator file for color separation for t-shirt printing I usually select the paths by color convert them in one curve element and when all the colors were separated by layers I exported them individually with press ready settings and their printing marks accordingly. Now with the export persona feature it seems I can do that with one click, and I'm getting the same mistake on every try. I need to have all colors with the same page size so when they are stacked together they will get the final print that they're looking for. Is there a way to have the export files in the same page size? If there isn't, I can do it the old school with no problem. Thanks in advance.
  15. Any ideas of what is happening here. A client send me a PSD file and I opened it to get this window? https://d.pr/i/TYh2nN
  16. OMG!! All this time and it was in front of my name ??! Thanks so much!!! This will help me a lot in my everyday task!
  17. Every day I have a client that need a logo in all formats, or a Sticker design etc... Exporting one by one in all formats is driving me crazy! This is something not even Adobe has managed to offer (without plugins I most said) if you became the first company achieving that it will make the most third party haters from the world switch to Affinity in a second! One click all formats export option, it's the only feature I ask from you.
  18. I noticed that when you drop an SVG or EPS file to Affinity Designer it always embedded file, so I need to double click on it in order to edit the graphic or do anything with it. My common solution has been open directly on Designer then copy and paste it on my working document and it's good to go. I don't want to do that always, My question is: Do you know a way to drop an SVG file that stays editable? like holding command while dragging or something like that? Thanks in advance.
  19. Barely can work with Photo today! beach ball with a copy and paste pic of 300dpi 7" by 7" SERIOUSLY?
