  1. Just noticed this bit of your earlier reply. I've saved the testfile.svg as an eps (in Inkscape) and tried to open it in Designer and it opened fine. Then tried to open an eps that crashed it earlier, also created in Inkscape, and the program crashed again. Both files were created and saved in the same way. Attaching a screenshot of the eps save settings from Inkscape. An upload link would be great, thanks again. Am on an iMac, running 10.10.5 (Yosemite).
  2. Thanks. It'll be a bit slow and fiddly, but at least it can be done! Are there plans to make this any quicker, or is just an issue with svg files in designer that has to be lived with? Thanks again.
  3. Hi MEB, Thanks for your reply and welcome Attaching an svg file that is doing what I describe. Here's what happens when I open the svg file in Designer: I select all 3 text objects with the Move tool Then select the Text tool Go to change the font/size via the toolbar or Character panel The A changes but the B and C remain the same. In case it's related, Designer is crashing every time I try and open an eps file. Thanks for the info about the ai files thing, makes sense, good to know. Thanks for your help. testfile.svg
  4. When I open an svg file created in Inkscape in Designer, some of the tools don't work. For example: when I select the text elements in order to change them to a different font or size, they don't change. The font is selected in the Character menu etc, but the fonts don't change in the file itself. As the program exports svg files I figured there wasn't a compatibility issue with Inkscape files. Is there a general compatibility issue between svg and Designer or is it to do with Inkscape? And is there a solution? I also can't open ai files created in Illustrator. The file opens with no content except this text: 'saved without PDF Content. To Place or open this file in other applications, it should be re-saved from Adobe Illustrator with the "Create PDF Compatible File" option turned on. This option is in the Illustrator Native Format Options dialog box, which appears when saving an Adobe Illustrator file using the Save As command.' Is there a solution to this too? I love this program, but this kind of glitch makes updating previous work impossible now I have switched from Illustrator to Affinity Designer, which means it has to re-created from scratch. Thanks for your help.
