  1. Update: I now regularly make equations in Word, export as EPS, and place in Affinity Designer. They place as curves, so no more editing. But you then have full control over sizing/style etc. Then I usually copy and paste straight back into Word (e.g. a test paper that needs figures) and skip the whole expert from Affinity step. Remarkably, the font sizes stay consistent!
  2. Came looking for an answer for this, and then stumbled on the answer by accident. Tap the top right icon to hide the UI twice quickly. The context menu hides with the rest of the UI.
  3. I just noticed that the Vector Brush Tool uses the stroke color or the fill color depending on which is selected on the colour panel. If the fill colour is selected, then the Vector Brush Tool uses that color, even if you change the stroke color from the context menu at the bottom of the screen. This is unexpected behaviour. The Vector Brush Tool should always use the stroke colour, right? In this screenshot, the top line was drawn with the the green fill colour selected. The second line was drawn with a red stroke color selected. The third line was drawn after changing the stroke color t
  4. What I do... Use a rectangle with no colour for line or fill. Group it with the elements you want sliced. Make slice from the group. Export. Unfortunately, I don’t think this will help if you have stuff that span across your intended slices.
  5. Solved! I should have noticed that ratio. I thought I had tried changing DPI but then I noticed that even if the document’s DPI is set to 96, the SVG export DPI is automatically set to 72 at first. When I set the document DPI to 96 and also set the SVG export DPI to 96, then the text in the exported image is 12pt/16px on the webpage, same size at the HTML 12py/16px text. Thanks!
  6. Last post on this issue and then I’ll wait to see what others think. My interim solution is to use size 16 pt font in Affinity Designer. It will export as 16 px, which matches the HTML where it will be embedded.
  7. When I change the Document Units in Document Setup… from from pixels to points, 400px by 300px becomes 400pt by 300pt automatically. But the image doesn’t get bigger or smaller, which supports the conclusion that 12pt and 12px are the same in Affinity when exporting to SVG.
  8. When I manually change 12px in the exported SVG file to 12pt, the text in the SVG is displayed bigger than originally designed in Affinity. This will be a problem for designing figures.
  9. I notice that 12pt in CSS is reported at 16px in Developer Tools (in Safari). That seems relevant.
  10. I tested PDF and Affinity Designer exports 12 pt to the same size as a Word document does to PDF.
  11. Okay, so I just noticed that the exported SVG gets font-size:12px, and I think that should be 12 point not 12 pixels. Does this mean that when you choose 12 pt in Affinity Designer, you’re really choosing 12 px?
  12. I am aiming to export SVG files with 12 point text (in Affinity) where that text is the same size as the 12 point text in the HTML where the SVG is embedded. As you can see, the text in the SVG and PNG is smaller that the text in the HTML above it. The HTML <!DOCTYPE html> <html lang="en" dir="ltr"> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>Test</title> <style media="screen"> * { font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Open Sans"; } &l
  13. Panel titles are blurry. I never noticed this before so I believe it has just happened. macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 MacBook Pro 13-inch 2916 Affinity Designer 1.6.1 It’s quite sore on the eyes when everything else is clean and sharp.
  14. Thanks! That was perfect for my needs. @gdenby Good to know! As a mathematician, I would love numeric access to those parameters.
