    Expand Stroke BUG

    Hi @smartweb It's been a long time since I've used Affinity Designer, especially since I was using it for icon design and ran into the same issue as yourself. I have found a decent workaround for now. Instead of designing at 64x64 or 128x128px, I start at 640x640px or 1280x1280px, set a proper grid to mimick the pixels and Expand Stroke at this resolution. On the export slices screen, you can then export to 64w, 128w, 256w etc. There's an example file attached to this post and some examples of the output. -- Karel speaker.afdesign
  2. @Molumen Yeah, same for me, I haven't opened Affinity Designer in months anymore because of this reason. I'm using Illustrator for icon design and Figma for UI design until this is resolved.

    Affinity Designer - expand stroke v1.6.0

    @maxaffinity You're welcome. Unfortunately the issue hasn't been resolved yet. I guess this means rewriting a lot of complex code, which doesn't seem likely to be happening anytime soon. The workaround offered by Affinity is to scale x100 or more, expand and scale back. You could create your design in Affinity and expand it in another program I suppose, but that kind of defeats the purpose of using AD in the first place.

    Affinity Designer - expand stroke v1.6.0

    @maxaffinity If you use Windows you can use this link -> https://affinity.store/en-us/update/windows/designer/1/ For Mac I don't know.
  5. Same here, there are a few topics about the same issue on the forum. I hope this gets fixed soon.

    Expand Stroke at small sizes results in wonky paths

    Same thing happens with rectangles, which is a real problem for icon design. I can imagine this is a really difficult issue to resolve, but it is a show stopper for me personally.
  7. Hi, I noticed I now have to remove xmlns:serif="http://www.serif.com/" from the svg files to be able to upload to Canva.com. Any chance of leaving this out in future releases?
  8. test-vctr.svg uses fill="#4e1b44" test-aff.svg uses style="fill:rgb(78,27,68);fill-rule:nonzero;" I'm guessing canva does not support the latter. As a side note, you have to remove xmlns:serif="http://www.serif.com/" from the svg files (use a text editor) to be able to upload to Canva. I guess this was added with the latest version of Affinity Designer.
  9. @andreibarbuta You're welcome! ;)

    [Fixed] Layer pixel alignment issues

    Hi guys, I noticed that when your artboard's x or y coordinates has decimals in them, you can run into some weird issues when creating pixel perfect objects. Here's an example of what I mean. Here are the snapping options I use This is the second artboard where the y offset is using decimals This is the first object which looks good in pixel view mode and was snapped into place using the mouse This is the second object where coordinates were used to create a perfect shape, but it is shown off pixel. When you export your pixel perfect artwork and you haven't noticed that your artboard is using decimals for its x or y coordinates, you are going to run into subpixel issues where you would not expect them. Exporting to svg, pdf or eps for Illustrator will quickly show you if anything is wrong. Here's the actual file where you can test the issue yourself. artboard offset.afdesign Just thought I'd share this as this can save you some headaches with your pixelwork. Regards, Karel

    [Fixed] Layer pixel alignment issues

    @Ben I totally agree this should be separate as it will deform your objects. It is a function that should be used with care.

    [Fixed] Layer pixel alignment issues

    The amount of snapping options got me confused at first as well, but it pays to get to know them properly. @Ben: An equivalent to Illustrator's 'Align selected art to pixel grid' could be a huge timesaver as I wouldn't have to individually align x/y coordinates for nodes that have decimal values. Keep up the good work!
