  1. That is great. My reply comes a bit late (got distracted by another project) but you just saved me tons of time. Thank you!
  2. Hi. Not sure if it is a good idea to hi-jack this old thread but the original post describes exactly what I'm looking for. Has it in the meantime become possible to specify the export sizes by pixels somehow? I have images that I need in various different sizes for different platforms. I haven't been able to come up with the ideal size for the source image that would cover all required exports with the scaling options I found. Being able to export all slices in all sizes at once could be an enormous time saver. Thanks, -jerry
  3. To wrap this up: At least in my case, this could be solved by setting the miter limit on each affected shape from (default) 10 to 1, which can be done either in Illustrator or Designer. Thanks, Mike, for the solution sent via PM. -jerry
  4. Thanks, Mike. I will send it in a minute. .. just realized I cannot send files via PM. Will find a way, just takes a bit longer. :) -jerry
  5. Hi again. I now went through my assets and most of them import quite nicely into Affinity Designer. A couple of them don't but keeping them exactly as they are is not critical - if I ever have to update them I will recreate them. However, there is one shape included in multiple images that I need to somehow get under control. It's a product logo, and it must not change. I cannot recreate it easily because I applied a warp filter on the overall image, and I cannot find a similar function in Designer. Luckily the original warp is preserved in the import even though the elements are ungrouped. But they have those overshot lines that I described in the original question, and not all of them are due to extra nodes. Saving to other formats and importing those show the same or other issues, so I haven't yet found a good way to import all images that include that logo. Like I said, I'd rather not attach the original design here but I could send a slightly obfuscated version in a PM if you'd like to have a look at it. I would very much appreciate that. Overall, I'm very pleased with this program. It certainly has all the features I could ask for and it is much easier to use. Thanks, -jerry
  6. Thank you, guys. This definitely fixes the problem for this shape. I realize it is a bit more complicated than I thought when I provided this one example: there are other cases, same symptoms, where deleting a node won't help. But you might have gotten me on the right track. I will check it and post another example if I get stuck (don't want to publish my designs here even if they might not be considered masterpieces). -jerry
  7. Thank you. Of course - here it is. ai-designer import issue.ai Thanks for looking into it. -jerry
  8. Hi. My main line of work is not graphical design, and I don't have a great amount of experience doing artwork. Nevertheless, I occasionally face the need to create logos and icons for my products. So I'm very much welcoming a cost effective and easy-to-use yet powerful alternative to the competitor's product, which has been draining my budget and time in no relation to the little bit of work I do with it. I'm now giving Affinity Designer a try, and I started by importing my Adobe Illustrator files: I noticed that some shapes don't import correctly, which gives me a bit of a headache. Here is an example: This shape in Adobe Illustrator: looks like this when imported into Affinity Designer: While there probably is a way to fix this in AD by editing each individual shape, it could become quite tedious. Is there a way to avoid this kind of issue? -jerry
