  1. Illustrator .ai file export would be nice. Exporting to EPS files for After effects just don't cut it. You can't edit the vector paths or access layers. :( Thanks for considering :)
  2. When I open an svg file created in Inkscape in Designer, some of the tools don't work. For example: when I select the text elements in order to change them to a different font or size, they don't change. The font is selected in the Character menu etc, but the fonts don't change in the file itself. As the program exports svg files I figured there wasn't a compatibility issue with Inkscape files. Is there a general compatibility issue between svg and Designer or is it to do with Inkscape? And is there a solution? I also can't open ai files created in Illustrator. The file opens with no content except this text: 'saved without PDF Content. To Place or open this file in other applications, it should be re-saved from Adobe Illustrator with the "Create PDF Compatible File" option turned on. This option is in the Illustrator Native Format Options dialog box, which appears when saving an Adobe Illustrator file using the Save As command.' Is there a solution to this too? I love this program, but this kind of glitch makes updating previous work impossible now I have switched from Illustrator to Affinity Designer, which means it has to re-created from scratch. Thanks for your help.
  3. Hi everyone ! My supplier send me .ai file about cars body but unfortunately, there is no way I cant open this file. I double checked with my supplier but she can open it with adobe without trouble so she since sent me a .pdf but I would like to fix this problem as it could happen again as .ai is kind of the norm. I attached the file. Hope you guys could give me a hand on this one :) Cheers ! Peug_054.zip
  4. Hello, I hope someone can give me an idea. I'm not a graphic designer (wish I was). I bought Affinity to create or modify simple graphics. I got away pretty good so far just by clicking, double clicking, left clicking or looking at every simple option or icon on the menus to insert, modify, add stuff, etc. But OMG I just can't figure out how to deal with text in this graphic that was created in AI (same with a PDF doc too). I just want to access the text and change few words, but all I can see is each letter as a multitude of layers. I can't find a way to see the text "as Text" and modify it simply. Can someone lead me in the right direction? Is there a tutorial somewhere? I attach a picture here
  5. Hello, if I open the attached Adobe Illustrator file (.ai), I just get a white/blank page. I work on Win10 64bit with Designer version Is this a bug?
  6. Hello. I have been using Illustrator regularly since CS2 (~10 years), and I recently purchased Affinity Designer. I'm interested in a dictionary of Illustrator features and workflows done in Designer. I'm willing to pay $$$ for it too. For example: Illustrator anchor point: Designer it is called an X Illustrator outline mode: Designer go to X menu and click Y Illustrator direct selection tool: Designer combination of X tool and Y tool. If you need to select and move one Z Illustrator reflect tool: Designer not a tool, but reflection function, etc... Unreal Engine has some pretty good Unity to Unreal transition resources (I won't link to them since this is my first post). Does such a resource exist for Affinity Designer?
  7. It would be nice if Affinity Designer could save as an adobe illustrator file. This would overcome the big advantage Adobe has over Affinity, usability. Most people (sad but true) still use Adobe. If Affinity could save as AI, like it can PHD...it would be a big help.

  9. Hello dear Affintiy Team, i just love your application, i am new and switching from illustrator. I couldn't find this topic in the forum: But how can i import content that is outside of an artboard from illustrator. (See Screenshot) I use this space like a desk, so there are a lot of important information, and if i want to move to your app in total, i need this for all my old graphics from illustrator. Thanks for reply. Greetings Dirk
  10. Hi, I've been trying to replace Illustrator with Designer. The tools are fine and are quite similar, but certain functionality is just not replaceable. Within my workflow, I often export ai or dwg from Rhino to further edit in AI. rect_cir.AI is an example. in Rhino, it is a simple rectangle and circle, in a layer colored red and green respectively. When exported as .AI, the Adobe Illustrator can open these just fine even with the layer color information and layer structure. When opening the same file in Designer, there is nothing, only a blank document with the size that should be the overall bounding box. Any ideas, anyone?
  11. Will Adobe Designer eventually be able to export as an .AI file? I was reading in the past about this topic, and someone said it was private. If this is the case, how can any Adobe file be exported at all? How can Adobe Photoshop not be private, whereas Adobe Illustrator is? Please let me know if this changes and explain this topic further so I can understand. What are file formats I can save as to keep it editable for an Adobe user to open Thank you so much!

  13. Hi there, I didn't put this in the 'bug' area because I'm not sure who has the bug. However, in the past after I have got a result from Vector Magic I would usually double click the 'drag me' bit to open Illustrator (the default program to open .ai files) to then work on it. After purchasing and getting myself to get used to AD I have made it the default program to open .ai files, which works nicely, however, when I do the process from Vector Magic it opens AD as expected but the result is a blank page. I have had this since I had AD July 15 when I had Yosemite, it's the same for my 2015 iMac and MBP, and now is the same with OS Sierra on my iMac. Screenies are attached. I just wondered if the bug was with AD with import or VM with export - or just some miscommunication between them. And i'm not like - oh! it must be a convenient a step between them as possible - but I just thought I would mention it :) never know, might be a small thing to make the difference. Vector Magic V1.18
  14. I'm not sure if there is anybody who asked this before, but i just wanna know why we can't save as or export to .ai or .cdr or maybe other extension instead of affinity file? Is it because of something like copyright (?) limitation or will it be a new feature in the future? Thanks
  15. Can we get an equivalent to AI's Ctrl+Shift+M (transform -> move). This is something I am constantly using for exact object/text placement.
  16. Hello, When i edited an "ai" file, AD crashed and get this informations "Attached files". In the second attempt, i could not edit the file anymore (freeze and weird display), but when I restarted AD an other time, all become normal. Best xlynx application_error.xml NET Runtime.xml
  17. Hi. I'm trying to open AI file exported from Rhino 3D modeler. I have been using this workflow with Illustrator and there's no problem but when I opened the file in Designer, it's all blank. Can you please tell me where is the problem? I'm sending you the exported AI file and screenshots from both software after opening the file. Thank you for your help. ico3.ai
  18. Hi, I received a technical drawing, that was exported as an AI file from CorelDraw X3. The file opens perfectly with Illustrator CS6, but is shown as a blank page with AD. The same drawing, exported as EPS from CorelDraw, opens perfectly in AD. Unfortunately, I cannot attach the file, being an ongoing project I'm not authorized to spread. Paolo
  19. Hey, So I just bought Affinity Designer for Windows, and noticed when importing some of my old Illustrator files, that Affinity doesn't import the vector objects that exist outside the page area set in the Illustrator file (I usually place work in progress objects outside the page bounds)... I was wondering, how hard it would be to enable support for importing these out of bounds objects? If Affinity Designer doesn't support off page objects, maybe add a check box on the open window which ignores the original documents page dimensions and sets it to all the available content, not just what's on the page. That way the data is still accessible and not lost after I no longer have access to Illustrator. Cheers, Mark
  20. I am new to AD, I saw this cool Drag and Drop symbol for Ai on the "Creative Market" website and was wondering can this be done in AD. below is a link to a video of what the plug-in does. Any help or insight would be great! video https://creativemarket.com/ianbarnard/762525-Drag-Drop-WoodType-for-Illustrator
  21. Can I open older Adobe AI, PSD, and EPS files in Affinity Designer and work with them with out problems?
  22. Hello guys, I'm a new user and i wanted to know if it's possible to work on Affinity with .ai files ? It seems impossible but maybe there is a converter (from .ai to .afdesign) which allowed me to do it . Thanks a lot ^_^ ^_^
  23. Hallo Team, I have a Flyer which I made for a customer in Illustrator CS 6 as a PDF, I wanted to import it. The problem is after the import, the strokes seem to be offset.. I didn't convert the strokes to outlines before the import and If you need the file or more info please feel free to ask. The file isn't for the Public. Robert
  24. I have a question. In illustrator is something like Live Paint Bucket that allow you to easy filling objects. Is there something like that in AD? Or need to redraw everything using pentool and fill ii with colour? For example I have toothed gear that I want to colour, made it using some circles and lines. Second thing is there a way to 'Origin' point, eg. in the center of circle and move/rotate everything by exactly this point? Its showed there. Maybe its already that in AD, but couldn't find it and searching didn't show something usefull.
  25. Hi, Should be really great if it would be possible saving project in AI format to import them in after effect. Actually, when i use the PDF format, there's some problems with the transparency and gradient. Thanx and thanx for this awesome software!
