    SVG Export Scale Issue

    I discovered on August 23 within (see topic below) that setting my Affinity Designer document to "96 DPI" allows me import the exported SVG into Fusion 360 at the correct size. Perhaps Carbide has something similar? I was seeing pretty similar results to yours when I didn't have the AD document's DPI set to 96.
  2. As best as I can tell, the export is _ALWAYS_ in Pixels. My biggest issue was importing the SVG into Fusion 360. When I changed my underlying document to "96 DPI" the pixel-based SVG imported perfectly into Fusion 360 (it seems that Fusion 360 assumes that SVGs with pixel units will be 96 DPI). I really do wish they would export in the document's units but that doesn't seem to be happening.
  3. I'd still love to see the ability to select units for export. I've discovered that setting my Affinity Designer document to "96 DPI" allows me import the exported SVG into Fusion 360 at the correct size.
  4. Hi Serif Staff, you reported about to years ago this issue was resolved and the next Mac release would support the ability to export (and import?) SVG in units other than the incredibly awkward "pixel". As of August, 2019 (version 1.7.2), the export behavior described above is exactly as described at the top of the thread. Is this feature hidden somewhere or still on the roadmap or? Having predictably sized SVG files is just as important for people targeting any sort of CNC (laser cutting, die cutting (Cricut, Silhouette), for import into other design tools like Fusion 360 - I do all of these). Thanks for any help you can provide. I completely love Designer, but dimensioned SVGs are so important. DXF support would be wonderful, too, but SVGs would suffice. Kevin
  5. +1 for DXF Import and Export. Please!
