  1. Bug: When the document is exported to SVG format, the units and values are compromised Proposed Solution: Respect the unit configuration in the document setup, and don't do any conversions, just export the values as they are in the document. Description: When the document setup has units set to mm, the exported SVG defines the dimensions in pixels. Actually regardless of any setup, the export of SVG is in pixels. It's frustrating that there is no DXF support, so can you at least fix the SVG dimensions to export in proper units? I've tried every combination of export SVG "more" opt
  2. It was brought up in this topic: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/16297-any-way-to-force-everything-to-paths-when-exporting-to-svg/ Essentially, when I export to svg I want everything exported as <path>'s but I get some <rect>'s even though they are displayed as (Curve)'s. Is there a solution for this?
  3. Does anyone know if there is a way to force all elements converted to SVG 'path' tags rather than primitive shapes such as 'rect', 'circle' etc. Converting a simple shape elements to curves doesn't help to my surprise. Even adding extra nodes to e.g. a rect or circle shaped curve still doesn't force it exported as a path in SVG file. It is extremely critical for us due to nature of the project. Any ideas please? I was so happy to escape Adobe CC train and last I want is to jump back just for the sake of SVG exports :(
  4. I tried yesterday to export a designe for my client its made with pen tool and few brush layers with blend mode set to Erase. When I tried to export it as pdf/svg transparent background ( that was already set on the document setup) Its not work and its export with white background and the erase layers was also visible (and not erased nothing) Even if I tried to ⌘+A>Export>svg/pdf>selection without background its not worked Its work fine only when I tried to export it as a png transparent I'm really need help because its for a client and the time is a litt
  5. I am importing music from Sibelius or Logic to Affinity Designer. All layers are vector curves. I want to show these as very high res on a web page, so I assumed that SVG would work well to retain the best quality vs file size. However a single page of very simple music exported to SVG is approx 300kb which is bigger than the same page exported to PNG. It is also larger than the actual affinity file (attached) which seems a bit odd. Is this inevitable given the huge number of different vector curves involved, or does anyone please know of a way to get the exported SVG significantly s
  6. I can't import in Designer SVG made in Blender. The only way is importing those SVG to Inkscape and then import to Designer. monkeys-unsupported.svg
  7. Somehow one of the texts from affinity to svg doesn't export nicely. As you can see the lower text got squeezed, and not retained its isometric grid while exporting. I can view this SVG file on the web and affinity without any problem. But if I try to open this in Sketch app, it looks weird. Any idea what's causing this issue?

  9. Aloha, I 've notice when I insert a hyperlink Text>Interactive>hyperlink onto my picture(s) all is well πŸ˜€. However, when I file>export as an SVG file, all hyperlink(s) are gone. Yes I realize PDF file will contain hyperlinks, SVG file can be used as images and contain hyperlink (<svg></svg>. This missing feature is a MUST for web designer, UI designer because the advantage of SVG file over jpeg, png, pdf, etc are treminduse. I can upload an SVG file as an image file to my website. Works well for responsive websites and for creating beautiful looking we
  10. Hi there, I'm trying to export a layer as an SVG, but when I open the finished product, there is a border around it (I think it is from the artboard). Wondering if I can set it so every layer can be exported without a square border around it. More detail: I have a file setup as a grid of artboards (see attached) and I want those objects (with no border) exported as an SVG. Looking something like this: Switching to Export Persona, I have slices of every artboard and in this case select "Page 1" to export as an SVG. I can see that every slice has a little symbol of a pe
  11. Have been working my way through the Designer Workbook -created a logo and exported it as an svg. Great Looking at the SVG code I see there are style refs that colour the logo. If I remove the fill colour I can the change the colour of the SVG using CSS. Is there a way of exporting from Designer so that no fill colour is specified in the code and it can be recoloured by css alone. Hope that made sense! Pete
  12. I am trying to export SVG files from Affinity Designer and bring them into a range of programs for generating tabs / notches and then outputting for laser cutting. In Adobe Illustrator it is very simple - you set the document units to mm, design something with specific dimensions, and export your SVG. What comes out will be interpreted by other software, and by the laser cutter at the exact dimensions. With Affinity Designer, I've spent hours troubleshooting and digging through the forums and no matter what I do dimensions seem to vary depending on the DPI and all sor
  13. Hi all, I was wondering if someone knows a way to export svg with the content that is outside artboard? I have tried everything but only solution is to expand the artboard which isn't something I like to do.When I have a scene with elements outside the canvas like for example a car I would like to have all of the elements exported not only the visible one
  14. Good afternoon, all! I am sure this has been asked before so if anyone has a link that I cannot seem to locate, I would appreciate it. I am attempting to make simple designs in Designer for export as an SVG to then upload to Cricut Design Space. I have attached a file with a simple example. I am wondering what the steps would be to do a couple things: 1. Have overlapping parts of the layers be negative space in what is behind it. An example would be the text in the attached file. If I am cutting vinyl and want everything to be on the same plane, I need the words cut out of what is behind
  15. Hi All, New user to affinity designer here! I am trying to import some svgs into the program, but they seem to always come up as completely black. It seems to be fine on browser SVG viewers and AI. another problem is the dotted bands either side do not properly import either, they load in as this shape attached. Any advise on how I can get this to properly import? Cheers!
  16. I searched the forums extensively for this but couldn't find any information. I am sorry if I missed it. I would like to give classes to the shapes I create for export or IDs. Either one would work. For example, I have many objects within different groups called screen. Even though they are in different groups with different names, I notice when I export it consecutively names them so no two are the same. The first path with name will have ID id="screen", the second id="screen1", third id="screen2", id="screen3", and so forth. Basically, how can I customize this or make the IDs th
  17. Summary Affinity Designer, as of 1.9, produces SVG exports where at least one simple, hollow shape (donut) is unusable in Xcode or subsequently on iOS Impact The problem effectively prevents the use of Affinity Designer by many developers working on the creation of svg assets for the Apple platforms. Similar issues perhaps for Glowforge users, see https://community.glowforge.com/t/bug-svg-fill-rule-fix/20413 Setup macOS 11.2.1 (20D74) Intel Affinity Designer 1.9.0 on Xcode 12.4 with iOS target 14.0 To reproduce New document, Presets -> De
  18. Hi, Please excuse what may seem like very basic questions but I am extremely unexperienced with graphic design. I've used GIMP for a few months and found it clunky and time consuming, so I recently purchased Affinity Photo and I am contemplating purchasing Affinity Designer depending on the answer to my question. I've watched several of the tutorials and have searched the help section and forums but have not found an answer to several of my questions. I own a Cricut cutting machine and I make t-shirts using heat transfer vinyl. I have figured out how to make pngs in affinity and imp
  19. Issue/situation: Affinity Designer does not export anything. When I click the export option ( or use the cmd + shift + s ) the export menu opens as normal, I then choose svg ( or any other format ) and click export, here I would expect Designer to show the finder window so I can select export location and give it a name but nothing shows. Here's the specs for my computer: Mac Pro (Late 2013) Processor 3,5 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5 Memory 16 GB 1866 MHz DDR3 Graphics AMD FirePro D700 6 GB Question: Is this just me or does anyone else have this issue?

  20. With Designer 1.8.6 on macOS 10.14.6, when I open an SVG file and then try to export it as PDF, the application completely crashes. Steps to reproduce: - open attached SVG file - go to File / Export - select the "PDF" tab in the export dialog - the application crashes I have verified the SVG and found it to be a valid SVG file. I have some other SVG images (generated from the same source) where the same behavior can be observed. eILCD example - LDPE injection moulding parts model.svg
  21. When drawing elements to be cut on a laser cutter, setting up a document in mm is very helpful. Unfortunately, the common interchange file format for this kind of device is SVG. While the file format supports measurements in defined units, Designer converts to pixels during the export, which means that after import, the dimensions have to be recalculated. Therefore, it would be great to have the option to preserve the units from the document during export, such that a 50x150mm rectangle is exported just as such.
  22. I need to export designs as SVG so that they could be used in a web UI at a specific size (150 x 150 px). By this I mean that the graphic sits in a transparent space of those dimensions. However, even if I create a canvas with those dimensions and select to export the entire document, the SVG I get have dimensions that are based only on the space occupied by the objects inside the canvas and not including the clear space they sit in. I even tried making a rectangle in the background that's 150x150 px and setting opacity to 0% without luck. In AdobeXD, for example, I can create an artboard t
  23. I have some simple SVG code (Note: ignore the viewBox attribute, it’s wrong): <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> <!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd"> <svg width="100%" height="100%" version="1.1" viewBox="-0.5mm -0.5mm 11.0mm 11.0mm"> <rect x="0mm" y="0mm" width="10mm" height="10mm" stroke="black" stroke-width="1mm" fill="none" /> </svg> When I paste it into Designer, for example, from the clipboard, the rectangle has a width and height of 2.4mm and a stroke width of 0.24mm,
  24. I use Affinity Designer to create files that I export – using "SVG (for export)" – for other apps, such as Cricut Design Space. The problem is that the Affinity Designer SVG export contains scientific e notation values like: <g id="topback" transform="matrix(-1,-1.22465e-16,1.22465e-16,-1,854.039,695.404)"> that other apps, specifically Design Space, chokes on. Trying to import that object into DS results in unusable, malformed objects. Sometimes I can "fix" it by editing the SVG file from the above, to: <g id="topback" transform="matrix(0,1,1,0,854.039,695.404)
  25. I'm using AD to create graphics and then export them to SVG format. When working with named layers those layers get exported with an ID set to the name, so it's easy to reference the group from Javascript. Perfect. But SVG format has a lot of different attributes that can be used. How can I add or specify such values so that these get correctly exported into the SVG file?
