  1. Sadly it has not. I've changed jobs and haven't actually had to use the floorplans for awhile - but I just tested it and the svg still gets messed up when it's loaded into any of the Affinity programs. If you don't need to make alterations to the file you can convert it to a pdf and then it opens fine. My issue was I needed to make changes - I ended up doing it as a png and using white blocks to cover the text and put in my own. Now I have an excellent pdf editor so I don't even have to do that.
  2. +1. I’m trying to work through the Affinity Designer workbook on my ipad and this has me stopped on the second lesson. There’s a pallet file in the downloads but I can’t find a way to open it in the ipad app and there’s no option to import it.
  3. Hi Jeremy, Thanks so much for the free brush packs! I also checked out your website and I'll likely be signing up for your Affinity Designer on ipad course once I'm done the desktop one I'm currently working on.
  4. I receive the file as a svg, pdf and jpeg. I can open the svg in Adobe Illustrator and it's fine and I can save it as a pdf and that is fine. I can open the svg in chrome and it's fine. The only other program that I can open an svg file in that I have is Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer and it won't open properly in either of those.
  5. Yes. We use a 3D matterport camera to do scans of a house. Then the scans are uploaded to matterport and they process them as a virtual walk through and we can get the floor plans. We download the floor plans as SVG and pdf files. The problem is that we can’t label the rooms before we get the floor plans and on larger houses they often resort to calling many rooms the ‘family’ room when our clients would like them differentiated by calling one a sitting room, one a recreation room, etc. I can make those changes to the SVG files in Adobe Illustrator - but it takes so long to open and is so resource intensive I thought I could save time by using my Affinity Designer.
  6. I was trying to see if it was the file - I had imported it into icloud to use on the ipad - and I opened it and another similar file and the original file in Affinity Photo on my mac and I'm having the same issue.
  7. Yep. Here it is. 0_11-aneva-court-fenelon-falls_0_5.svg
  8. Yes exactly. When I look into the layers I can select all the individual pieces and move them back into their rightful places - but that would be tedious and shouldn’t be necessary. I just can’t figure out why a bunch of pieces shifted on import. I’ve gone through the layers hoping it was just a group or two and I could shift the whole group back - but it’s not. And it seem to be really random where stuff got placed.
  9. Thank you for the response. When I opened the file in Illustrator it said the font was Verdana and when I open it in Designer on the ipad it says the same and that font is installed.
  10. Hi there, I wanted to do some editing of an svg file of a floorplan. However, when I import the svg file into my Affinity Designer on my Ipad the file is all messed up - with elements moved around. I've uploaded a screenshot of how the svg file looks in Affinity and how the file should look (I had it also as a png file). I've double checked my source file and it's fine and it opens fine in Adobe Illustrator. I don't have Affinity Designer for my mac so I couldn't test that. I tried it with a couple of different floorplans and the same thing happens. Is there something I can do to easily fix this type of file?
