    I've just had a look on a few Windows forums and lots of people are complaining about drag & drop on Windows 11 which was initially seemingly released without this feature as they had build the OS from the ground up. 

    However, seabirdr said they are on Win 10 so... 

    I'm sure that Designer V2 can't gain focus on my computer.

    But yesterday I have a new discovery that if I hold down the shift key and drag a file to V2, V2 can gain focus.

    Here are the details of the OS:

    I found this YouTube video where someone (I don't think from Adobe) created his own script that works with Adobe illustrator to an import SVG files *while retaining their layer structuring.* Because what seems to be a random person who is able to do this with illustrator, I know that the Serif team can do it in Affinity Designer.


    I love Affinity Designer and it's workflow and I know that it will be faster for me to work in Affinity Designer to get the designs I want than in Moho Pro. If I cannot import SVG files like this, it will be too tedious to import complex shapes like characters that have many layers. I would therefore just use Moho Pro to design characters, meaning I would have to set Affinity designer completely to the side, which I don't want to do. I spent money to purchase Affinity expecting I was going to use it, so it would be a shame for me not to use that software because of something simple like this.

    Can someone please make this a feature asap? LOL

    AffInity Designer hasn't improved for Moho Pro. Have you found a workaround?

  3. The rectangle in the canvas is the parent shape, and the ellipse in the canvas is the child shape. I use MOVE INSIDE to move the ellipse into the rectangle. If I change the size of the rectangle and then move the ellipse in, the position of the ellipse will change.

    In fact, changing the artboard size will also cause the position to change. In actual use, the ellipse is sometimes positioned far away from the canvas. The screen recording was created specifically to demonstrate the problem. The actual situation is much worse.

  4. Hi adirusf, thank you for your attention to this issue. I know that when documents become complex, they can lead to performance degradation. But when I had performance problems today, i had only a few shapes in my document. 

    After exploring, I found that the delay occurred because the appearance panel was turned on and set fills for a shape. As long as it existed, the document slowed down. When it was turned off, the delay was greatly relieved.

    Below I attach the GIF screen recording and the test file.

    Thanks for letting us know - this happened for me immediately, but after doing a Ctrl Run up I could no longer produce the issue. I do have my AppData saved in this state so I'll get it passed over to development. In the meantime if you go to %AppData%\Affinity\Designer\1.0 (Beta)\ and delete the 'Workspaces' folder it will completely reset them and should allow you to resize the Layers Panel.

    After following your method, I can drag and change the panel height.

    But the new problems are still annoying. Please see the GIF below. I arranged the panels in the way I used to, switched to export persona, and then switched back, the arrangement of the panels was messed up.

    If I’ve understood this correctly, the original problem can be re-worded as: “Why does an HSL adjustment applied to a layer cause a white ‘outline’ to be seen on-screen around the shape in that layer when Precise Clipping is selected in the Preferences?” Have I got this right?

    You're right. It is true that the problem is caused by the HSL adjustment layer.
