Layers not behaving correctly going from affinity to adobe in Pre-V2 Archive of Affinity on Desktop Questions (macOS and Windows) Posted September 2, 2021 5 hours ago, user_0815 said: That looks very complicated. However, the OP needs just one layer for the foil content and a base layer below. Could you test this pdf that I have exported? I think it should be what he needs. Exactly! I'm just looking for a way to keep only the 2 layers when opened in either AI or Acrobat Pro: a top layer labeled 'silver' and the bottom layer labeled whatever. This is what the print co needs and is expecting to see. I am trying to avoid any nesting (or sublayers as I called them before) if at all possible to avoid confusion. It does not sound possible unless I am misreading.
