    Trouble exporting to Creative Cloud

    Haven't tried to export again, yet, nor have I tried rebooting. I'll give that a shot. I was trying to export as a PSD. Toby
  2. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the export process in AD. It seems powerful, but it's fairly different from what I'm used to. I think I'm following the correct steps, as I was successfully able to export my files to my Affinity folder on my iPad as well as to iCloud. However, when I do the same process and select a folder in Creative Cloud, it says that it exports...but the files don't show up in CC. I had no troubles IMPORTING my files from CC into AD. Not sure if it's a bug, my device, my connection, or me. Anyone else have an issue exporting to CC? Thanks Toby

    Importing layered files

    So, I did come up with a solution, if anyone had a similar problem. I opened the layered file as it's own document, copied it, then returned to my artboard document and pasted it onto an artboard. I started having some glitchy, freezing issues, but I assume that's because I have a tendency to go crazy with layers and effects and file sizes. Not sure if there's an easier way to accomplish this, but this appears to work. Toby

    Importing layered files

    Thanks! The file is a PSD I created in Photoshop. I’ve had no problem importing and opening layered PSDs that I’ve created in Photoshop as their own documents, but I haven’t been able to add them to an existing art board. Toby
  5. Greetings, all. I'm loving Affinity Designer on my iPad. I don't have any experience with Illustrator, but have watched tutorials and thought about looking at it more seriously. Then AD came out and I pounced right away. I'm relatively new to working in vectors outside of some basic stuff with the pen tool in Photoshop, and the whole artboards thing is very new to me. SO! On to my actual question: is there a way to import a layered file into a pre-existing artboard? I have created an artboard to muck around with some business card ideas to promote myself as an artist. I can import an image just fine. Basically, I want to use the logo I created for my website for one side of the card, but I want to have access to the layers to move certain elements around or make adjustments for clarity as it is in a reduced size. I've already been able to download the layered file from the cloud and open it as it's own document in AD just fine. I'm just wondering if there's a means for me to add it in it's layered format onto my business card artboard. Thanks for any forthcoming enlightenment or revelations that what I'm trying to do can't be done! Toby
