  1. I have found a workaround, of sorts: 1. Set up the document units to pixels, and use pixel measurements in place of millimetres, e.g. if desired size is 100mm, make object 100px. 2. Export the document using the export option in the file menu, select 'SVG (for web)'. Click 'More' for extra options. 3. Deselect 'Set viewBox' and select 'Add line breaks'. Export the file. 4.

  3. Thanks for all the suggestions. I am still investigating this. Unfortunately going through the export menu rather than persona doesn't change things. For example, I am unable to get anything to work with this web app, which I use all the time with Illustrator and Inkscape files: https://clementzheng.github.io/joinery/ The app imports the file with pixels, rather than mm as the units. I think the problem is that, regardless of the document units, Affinity Designer exports SVG with pixels as the units. Regarding DPI - the DPI used when exporting changes the scale this
  4. I am trying to export SVG files from Affinity Designer and bring them into a range of programs for generating tabs / notches and then outputting for laser cutting. In Adobe Illustrator it is very simple - you set the document units to mm, design something with specific dimensions, and export your SVG. What comes out will be interpreted by other software, and by the laser cutter at the exact dimensions. With Affinity Designer, I've spent hours troubleshooting and digging through the forums and no matter what I do dimensions seem to vary depending on the DPI and all sor
