  1. What is the best way to open an .EPS file in AP on a way that I see no pixels. In Photoshop this rasterising is far more better. My workaround is to open the EPS in Photoshop, than save as PSD file. Then open that PSD file in AP. There must be a better way.
  2. Can I open older Adobe AI, PSD, and EPS files in Affinity Designer and work with them with out problems?
  3. Does not open files in .ai or .eps format. They appear as an empty representation but nothing else. Don't appear to be hidden, as no obvious way to reveal any files contents. icons.ai icons.eps sunz.ai sunz.eps
  4. When a file is exported to EPS, it does not enclose a tiff/jpg preview. Older versions of QuarkXPress requires this. This is the only reason why I still have to keep Illustrator around. Since this is part of the EPS format specs, I posted it as a bug and not a feature request.
  5. Hi! Just a basic question. Could I use the Pen tool to make a silhouette for clipping an image, and export the image with the cutout of the silhouette to EPS or native format to place in on another application to be able to change the background every time I want? An example could be a frog with the moon as a background.
  6. Hi. I am trying to import EPS file downloaded from Shutterstock. And Designer's import making me crazy! Tell me how can I use Designer (I really want) and not use Illustrator when I Designer has such terrible import... So 2 huge problems when importing! 1. Image cropping is absolutely incorrect. Look at examples in Illustrator and Designer. In Illustrator vector is adjoins to the edges like should be, in Designer not! 2. Colors are just terrible! Absolutely wrong! I should open in Illustrator first and save to ai file with embedded color profile, and only after that Designer can show me correct colors! 3. Make finally Artboard tool, we discussed in this topic: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/20103-exporting-to-eps-%E2%80%94-how-to-do-that/&p=93520 — method with drawing rectangle like clipping mask is terrible and I need to use Illustrator every time to check how your software exported. Just include Artboard feature to get always what I see. Because when I am importing eps with correct artboard to Designer I have not any rectangles! Tell me what to do now and make it work good in next update! So great software with such terrible main features... I attached original eps vector from shutterstock too.

  7. Hi there, Firstly, the SVG support is excellent, far better than Illustrator CS6 which changes the SVG slightly, so kudos on that! However when exporting to eps, or png, I am forced to change the name slightly, otherwise it decides it'll just overwrite the SVG...as an SVG - rather than the file type I selected. The SVG in question is found on this link, if you'd like to test the exact file https://pixabay.com/en/orange-citrus-sliced-fruit-juicy-42395/ This isn't necessarily a bug, but it's an annoyance and it would be awesome if it could be fixed. The only bug I've had so far is the program crashing when trying to pick a font, but that's already been added to the list. Thanks
  8. I have file that was made in (of course) illustrator with some graphics. When I open in AD, they are literally slices with Curves adjustments - Open in Illustrator and click the graphics I want copy for pasting in AP and after a couple clicks, I can Select the group of graphics. Anyways. Thoughts? Also last thing. Here is what Illustrate says about slices when I open the EPS in Illi.
  9. Hi. I made simple art in Designer to try work with it, all looks ok. Exported to EPS and getting rejection on Shutterstock "Clipping Mask Issue -- Please apply clipping mask or edit EPS file to match JPEG crop.". Ok, I opened the file in Illustrator and saw that clipping mask is absolutely not the same what I can see in Designer. . . And what should I do here? I can't understand it by myself. How can I show this small area in Designer and increase it, and crop all geometry that is away of the screen??? I am tied trying to use your software in work. Terrible export in all of your products.
  10. Hey! I just bought Affinity Designer this week. I have some experience in Adobe Illustrator, but am fairly new to vector art. I want to start selling vectors on Shutterstock and am working on a set of simple fruit and vegetable images to get familiar with vector creation and the process of exporting them in a format customers will be able to use. Shutterstock requires that vectors be uploaded as EPS files. I tried uploading this as one of my first images: 7-5-16_fruit_n_veggies_peapod.afdesign It got rejected because it contains bitmapping. Is this because I'm using an effect that gets rasterized that I'm not aware of, or is it because EPS rasterizes no matter what? Or is something else going on? I appreciate any help anyone can give me.
  11. I exported the attached SVG to EPS and found that some contours are apparently hidden behind others, although I tried bringing them to the front. If I export to SVG it works just as expected. AIM Logo.afdesign AIM Logo.eps AIM Logo.svg
  12. Hi All I'm not sure if it is a bug in Affnity Designer, or if the EPS files I have are corrupted, but I have problems opening EPS files with Affinity Designer. The EPS files open OK and can be edited, but they loose detail or show white borders between different parts of the diagarm. For example, using an EPS file available here: http://www.freepik.com/free-vector/golden-background_796381.htm the EPS opens with white borders around the different elements, while its AI file opens without any flaws. As another example, please have a look at EPS and AI files available here: http://www.freepik.com/free-vector/collection-of-luxury-brooch_856448.htm The jewelry pieces don't retain their white inner parts when the file is opened as an EPS file, but when opened as an AI file, the white inner parts are shown. Unfortunately I don't have Adobe Illustrator, so I cant verify if these EPS files are not corrupted. Any advice in this matter will be appreciated!
  13. Hi guys/gals, I've been playing with the beta, and so far it looks really nice. :) As I'm also doing a lot of 3D, I often use vector based work as a basis for 3D. Most of this comes into the 3D apps as eps or AI8 exported files. But the eps files out of AD have nothing in them when imported in a 3D app. Strange thing is I do get the file properly imported into Illustrator though, but cannot edit it anymore. So it looks like the eps file does something different than usual. It would be nice to see this working, as re-tracing stuff by hand in a 3D app can be pretty tedious. Oh. and retouching in Illustrator is also needed. rob
  14. HiHi! First of all, AD is my new favourite thing in the world, ever. I'm buying it, even though it's not quite fit for the purpose of Motion Graphics just yet. I've posted in the forum in case i've missed something but will AD be able to export a layered vector file format for use in AE? I'm desperate for AD to work in the After Effects pipeline without having to do workarounds. (Raster is no good for the Mograph we do at the current agency) Illustrator sucks! :P AD is epic! B)
  15. I have a subscription to VectorState and lately I experience that the files I download is an extremely bad quality - see the attached two files. I have been in contact with their support and they claim that the .eps files is not only restricted to Adobe software and that it probably is something wrong with Affinity Designer (they compare it with CorelDraw that has the same problems they say). And they said that maybe some designers who has uploaded their graphic have done it in a wrong way abd that they can't control that. Before I go on and complain I just want to check if any one else has experienced such thing with VectorState files? Thanks! Jesper ING_38192_05667.eps ING_38192_05668.eps
  16. Trying to export to PDF to get business cards printed. I imported a PSD template from moo.com with the right color spaces / etc. Tried importing my logo in EPS and SVG, which looks fine on screen. But when exporting to PDF it rasterizes. Afraid it's going to print terribly and considering just exporting a massive PNG instead. Disclaimer: I basically never do print work and have used Photoshop for under 3 hours in my life. Affinity Photo is a totally different app for me (Fireworks to Sketch user).
  17. Hello, I'm new to the forum so apologies if this question has been asked before. Anyway, I now and then create vector stock images and this is the first time I've done the work with Affinity Designer, mainly because I cannot stand Adobe Illustrator. But the problem is that stock agencies usually demand you send them Illustrator compatible eps files. Therefor I always check the final art in Illustrator. When importing the eps (and pdf) files I created with Affinity, I noticed that the gradient fills have been rasterized to bitmaps (this is a usual phenomena with other programs as well). Is there any workaround to import Affinity created files to Illustrator with the gradients intact. They are simple two color gradients, nothing fancy. It doesn't have to be eps or pdf, anything will do, as I can save them as eps in Illustrator after I have checked that everything is OK. The only solution so far is to create the gradients in Illustrator. -Paul
  18. 1) I made a fairly complex graphic with probably 200+ layers and I aim to animate this graphic, probably in After Effects. I named all my elements and organised them in folders and subfolders so it would be easy to identify what is what when it comes to creating the animation. I'm pretty new to After Effects, so learning how to pull files from Illustrator and move forward. The problem I have is: If I export (to .eps, .pdf or .svg) all the folders vanish. In Illustrator there is simply one folder with all the various layers in it (I'm on Illustrator CC 2015 v.19). If find Illustrator's interface a nightmare. Do I really have to go through 200+layers and put them in folders all over again? 2) Do you have any recommendations for programs other than After Effects (which is great, but very complex for my needs) that would work well in animating something produced in AD?
  19. Hi, I have been using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator CS2 for several years without issue but I am looking to change over to Affinity Designer as I have several new devices that are no longer compatible with CS2. I have been really impressed by Affinity Designer and it appears it can do all the things I'm looking for, so I'm planning on buying it :) However, all my previous files I have made with Illustrator I have saved as EPS files and when I open these in Affinity Designer it looks like only the layer that was visible at time of saving is displayed. It appears the same if I save the file as an AI file. I re-saved the file in Illustrator with all the layers displayed but when I opened this file in Affinity Designer it only showed a single layer and although it looks like all the content is present under this layer it's not the same layer organisation as when I open it in Illustrator. Is anyone able to suggest what I can do to make my existing EPS files more manageable in Affinity Designer? Layers in Illustrator: Layers in Affinity:
  20. Hi, I draw some strokes for a logo (look at the attached picture). I used strokes and changed the pressure to have different width along the line. The end of the stroke is round. I wanted to export my work in eps format to be able to print it ou use it with Illustrator... I saw in the eps file in illustrator that the round of my stokes became broken lines. Come back in AD, I decide to vectorise the stroke (layer menu). In french it's called "vectoriser le contour". And I obtain the same result : broken lines... Is it a normal behavior ? I also wonder why there are so many nodes (and no tools to simplify all those nodes). It's very difficult to change/adjust quickly the curve with so many useless nodes !! I hope my explanation is clear. Thank you.
  21. Features Wish list: Even though I have only just started using AD, there are so many things to love here. What a great start guys! There are a few things that would speed up my workflow and make drawing more enjoyable for me. Some sort of blob brush would be nice. Rather than a brush with an editable path, a brush that is already expanded into a shape as you draw. I do a lot of sketchy type work and this would be a great addition. I tend to draw with the pencil tool and a fill color. I draw tons of shapes very quickly and I would love a way to quickly close the shape by pressing a keyboard (option or cmmd key?) as I get close to the original starting node. Closing shapes is important to me, but it can take a long time to stop and select the shape then use the close shapes feature. Or maybe you could add the ‘close shapes’ button to the tool bar while the pencil tool is being used? That way one could just click that while the shape is already selected. Or perhaps the shape could just close automatically if you draw over to the original node. An eraser tool that works on both shapes or lines when in vector mode. Sometimes I use the ai eraser tool as a drawing tool. Move Tool: I would like to be able to drag this across several items at once to delete them. Currently I have click each but dragging across would be a quick option and nice to have. Move a specific distance: I make a lots of seamless patterns so being able to mathematically move items would be important for me. That future pasteboard area would become helpful to see things hanging over the edges. I have tried using the transform tool to move items but it’s not quite working for me yet. EPS: Different versions of eps would be helpful. The site I work for only allows version 10 eps so one would still need to open their file in Illustrator etc and re-save to the correct level. I know other sites also have some file restrictions as well. Paste in Front or Back. I guess the current paste does already past in front but having a paste in back would be nice as well. Sorry my list is so long! I'd love to beta test any new builds so i'll try to keep an eye out for them :)
  22. Hello everybody,- i am new in this Forum, and Affinty Designer First,- thanks for the promising good App, as well as Photo! Second,- i speak german, and like to illustrate my words with a graphic, if possible. :wacko: And now my first question. - when i export from AD to PDF for print (300dpi), i get artifacts (Skim and Apple Vorschau). - export to EPS Level 2 works perfect. Skim is converting it fine. Witch i could not open in Windows 10 with Acrobat. - export as EPS Level 3, and import it again in AD has some glitches. So, how do i export to PDF right? My document is in sRGB.
  23. Guys, it should be great app for microstock contributors. There're a huge amount of users, who can prefer AD instead of Illustrator. But there're many things that you need to do, if you want to increase the amount of users. The main thing for microstock illustrators is normal export to EPS format, especially EPS10, that all microstocks approve (http://goo.gl/oIYOpA). "Normal": 1) without problems of rasterization (now with gradients) 2) with handy option of expanding, like in AI (text, brushes, lines, etc.) 3) with the possibility to continue editing in Illustrator - hope it's temporary. http://www.istockphoto.com/help/sell-stock/training-manuals/illustration/quality-standards - this manual can help you. You are just amazing! Waiting for more comfortable version for microstock illustrators. You must think about this, seriously. Microstock users are a huge piece of world market of illustrators. p.s. sorry for not so perfect english
  24. OK, so one of the first things I do when looking at a new piece of software is see if it is "truly" compatible with Adobe illustrator. That is, it can not only import but export a usable file. Just about every software I have used cannot export gradients without breaking down each color into little bands or rasterizing it. Xara Extreme is the only one I have found thats works well, though they only have a PC version. It seems Affinity Designer is one that does NOT work will with exporting eps or svg files with gradients. Although it says that it can, and there is even a check box that allows files to be editable as a vector file, if there is any object overlapping, if there is a gradient, forget it. In fact, I created a box with a single color and one curve, exported as a eps, and it converted it to a bitmap. (see attached). One of the second things I do is see if I can draw a straight line at a specific angle, or at a angle specified in snap mode. I didn't find that feature yet. Anyone? I create stock illustrations and these stock sites insist on editable EPS version 10 files, no bitmaps objects. I'm think I did not find my replacement for Illustrator. ___ This make this software totally unusable for me. SO, I was hoping that someone could prove me wrong and show me how this will work.
