Recently I noticed that Designer 2.x files with artboards get clipped when placed in another document. The placed image has a correctly sized frame, but its contents are not fully drawn. The clipping occurs on the top and left side of the frame. It doesn’t matter how many artboards you have or in which Affinity app you place your graphic. This problem is most noticeable when the artboard fits tightly around its contents. It is not a display issue, as the exported PDF shows the clipping too. This issue only occurs in Affinity versions 2.0 and 2.1. Version 1.10.6 works as expected. Moreover, a Designer 1.10.6 image placed in a version 2.1 document renders as it should. That’s why I think this is a bug. Note that this isn’t about outside strokes that get clipped off because they overflow the frame. I’m using macOS 12.6.5 and the latest Affinity Publisher (2.1). Workaround: Resize the document to the desired size instead of creating an artboard, as the clipping only occurs with artboards. Steps to reproduce: Create a new document in Designer 2.0 or 2.1. Draw a circle, say 50 mm diameter. Give it a fill. The colour doesn’t matter. Don’t give it a stroke. Select the artboard tool. Choose Selection in the context toolbar and click on Insert Artboard. The artboard size is now 50 x 50mm. Save your document. Open any of the three Affinity apps (version 2.0 or 2.1). Create a new document large enough to fit the circle. Import the circle (File > place…) The circle is clipped on two sides, but the frame itself has the correct size of 50 x 50mm. It would be great if the Affinity team could look into this!
