  1. Hello, I have this issue. Not properly visualized gradient Affinity (Publisher; Designer) Google Chrome visualization.svg
  2. Windows 10 Home 1903, Photo 1.7.1.404 and Designer 1.7.1.404. As part of an experiment I (fairly randomly) found an SVG https://pixabay.com/vectors/car-black-vehicle-transport-travel-311713/ that I wanted to use but upon opening it in Photo and Designer (haven’t bothered trying Publisher) I see that it hasn’t been imported correctly. A lot of the detail is missing and there are bigger issues – see attached snapshots from Designer and Photo. It’s not a big problem for me as I can use the raster version instead but I thought I’d mention it so someone can look into it (there’s a chance that the original SVG is to blame so it might not be an Affinity problem).
  3. I have create a visualization in Affinity Designer (actually created a new document from clipboard of a PowerPoint drawing. In Affinity everything looks fine. But if I export it to SVG and open in in Chrome or open the SVG file in Affinity Designer again, it looks like the following. Morseschlüssel.afdesign Morseschlüssel.svg
  4. The bmc-remedy-1.svg file crashes Designer. I tried using svgcleaner to remediate and created bcc-remedy-2.svg but it likewise crashes Designer... Any idea why Designer crashes? bmc-remedy-1.svg bmc-remedy-2.svg Inserting this at the start doesn't help... <?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">
  5. Hi! I have several hundred (~500) different SVG files, all square icons with designs on them. I'd like to arrange them all in one big document, with an equal amount of space between them, so that I can print it as a poster. Other than doing it manually and copying/pasting each icon into the "master" document, is there any way I can somehow script it or just open all the SVG files at once and tell Designer "Combine and arrange these"? Also, is it even possible for me to add that many nodes to one document without crashing my computer? I have a MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) 2.3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9 with 16GB RAM.
  6. Hello, As a dataviz designer I often create the base of my works with SVGs on the web, so I can program the visual elements to be based on the data, then to import them into a vector tool for other adjustments. I've noticed that Affinity Designer doesn't import any SVG linearGradient / radialGradient nor patterns, which I do often use, so for now I can't rely solely on Affinity Designer sadly enough. (I copy the SVG element from the "Elements" section from the devTools in Chrome) I've attached a document that shows the import of the link below. All the inner curves that have a gradient in the online version are invisible (have no fill) in the import: https://bl.ocks.org/nbremer/raw/4de6f0a9d9d06373fc639e32e9c346cc/ For a radial gradient, you can try this: https://bl.ocks.org/nbremer/raw/e944485869ac8fd57413a158e9d8aae0/ which results in a no-fill circle being placed in Affinity Designer For pattern examples, you can try the following links that all are imported seemingly remaining invisible: https://bl.ocks.org/veltman/raw/57fbb830ba7e62caa46a82891168bc29/ https://bl.ocks.org/1wheel/raw/a8f39c8a96b71735488bf280d34bd765/ https://bl.ocks.org/veltman/raw/50a350e86de82278ffb2df248499d3e2/ I'm using Affinity Designer 1.7.1 on macOS Thank you!

  7. Hi Using Gradients, or shadow effects dramatically increases the exported SVG file size. Do anyone have any tips/tricks for how to use gradients in a way that does not affect the file size? This is important for use on webdesign etc. By example, a file was 4kb, without gradient. Introducing 1 gradient and 1 shadow effect resulted in a 60kb SVG file. Anders
  8. Hi! I have a shape with several pieces that I want to cut out. I have followed the instructions I found here: https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/119718/why-cant-subtract-complex-form-in-affinity-designer but it doesn't work. Somehow, I got it to work once with a different file but I'm not quite sure how, and now, I'm unable to reproduce that success with a new file. Is this a bug, or am I missing something? I want to cut out the red shape from the white background. When I cut it, it ends up looking like this, instead of the holes being cut out and showing the transparent background: What am I doing wrong? affinity-cutting-problem.afdesign
  9. Hi, I had a very unpleasant problem: I draw parts of the face that will be automatically painted using code, but for this I need to save the files in svg and open in adobe illustrator, but the order of the layers changes completely, some become a group, new ones appear ... I need a layer called "color" to be colored, but for some reason it becomes a group. An example in the picture: I need the eyeball to be separate, as in the screenshot in affinity designer, the layer order and grouping are ideal, but everything changes when exporting and opening in the illustrator. I tried changing the settings, grouping, language, names, converting zhlipsy to curves, etc. but it does not work. I really hope that this is just my mistake and that you can fix it thank you in advance!
  10. I need to make a file that could be open by Adobe Illustrator, which contains every single layer, including hidden ones. No matter what I choose between the different types of SVG, Affinity Designer flattens the image into a single layer and discards everything that’s hidden ! I have no idea what I’m doing wrong, I really need help
  11. 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 pentagon and a circle surrounded by a purple square border. I've seen in tutorials that this symbol can be just the shapes colored yellow (this is what I expect I want to have in this case). So the Exporting looks like this: After saving it off and opening the resulting SVG file, I end up with the desired objects from the layer, but I also have a rectangle surrounding the whole thing. It looks like I can delete it manually and save it off again to just get the objects in the layer. I'm wondering how to set it so I don't get a border of where the artboard was in my outputted SVG. So I want to stop exporting the highlighted rectangle: Let me know if you need clarification. Thanks in advance for your help. Here's a test file: svg_export_testing.afdesign Best, Zach
  12. Hi! Strange thing is happening when I open one of the svg files. AD shows completely different colors compared to Chrome/Mac preview. What am I doing wrong?.. Svg file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/alo2vtoxcqkk6sg/image_10_12.svg?dl=0 As it's rendered by Chrome Opened in AD:
  13. Hello, I have generated an SVG file using a Blender add-on, which is scripted in Python. When I try to open the file in Affinity Designer 1.5.3.69 I get the following error: "Failed to open file" "The file could not be parsed." The file opens fine in the latest Google Chrome and Adobe Illustrator CS6 I found a solution to fix the error: Change the line: <?xml version='1.0' encoding='ascii'?> to: <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> This issue is the same as the one reported on the "Bugs on Mac" forum: Here is a sample file: 0001.svg Thanks, Dave
  14. I created a graphic in Affinity Designer. I exported it as a SVG. I opened the SVG in Adobe Illustrator to be sure it can be worked on in Adobe. I united some paths w pathfinder, saved and closed the SVG. Next time I see the file, it's gone wonky. Happened at least 2 or 3 times. Why?
  15. I have recently become aware of the ability to animate SVG (Affinity Designer) for the web. There are applications coming out that make it really easy, however, the file size is a serious problem if you intend to have your work in a web page as Affinity does not offer the reduction of file size. Here is a youtube video I made on 09/03/2018. It is impressive what one can achieve. This is a concept for a web homepage. If you look closely there is some really subtle animation. The balloon has a flame which gets turned on and off to make it rise, the balloon also changes size in that as it moves away into the air it gets smaller. The clouds in places are semi-transparent. Also, the sun has a haze around it which disperses as the sun bets higher in the sky. All these really subtle changes make for huge file sizes. One online SVG animator which is still in beta is svgator.com which is free but limited. I have included a file of a puppy wagging its tail and turning its head which I animated in svgator. Just drag the (1A 76 questioning puppy.svg) file onto a web browser and it will automatically play and is on infinite loop. You have to export the files as an SVG from Affinity Designer and then upload that file into the svgator system. The head, body and tail have to be different and separate files to be able to animate them: i.e. the head would be nested in affinity designer the body would be nested and so would the tail. Exported as SVG and then imported to your animator of choice and there are many out there some free. 1A 76 questioning puppy.svg
  16. Hi. Is there a way to edit imported sag files? I made some sine curves in "Grapher" and exportet to PDF. I tried to convert them to curves, which did nothing. Same with SVG files. I want to edit them, so that the sine curves do not overlap the whole graphic. I want to crop it. The vector crop tool is just a rectangle, which does not work for me. You can see in the Screenshot, the yellow curves overlap. I want them to be just inside the speech bubble. Anyone knows how to do this? A just can't use boolean operations like substract, ect. They are greyed out.
  17. I’m a fashion student so do a lot of my technical drawings on this app, however I’m having trouble exporting them. SVG is really the only file that when exported still gives me crisp clear lines but recently I’ve started having issues I’ve attached an example of one of my drawings vs what happens when it exports, ill export it as an svg (for export) and ill go into my files and it will look completely fine within a few minutes I go back to see if it’s all good and I’m left with either nothing or one small part of a drawing . I’d appreciate any help or advice on this issue I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if there is something else I can export it as without compromising the quality? I’ve attached screenshots below.
  18. I've got this svg file I saved from https://designs.ai/graphicmaker/illustration/243-public-transport-bicycle (I attached my saved file) that, when I try to open it in Affinity I'll get a "The file type not supported" error, even though it shows up fine when loaded in a browser. I've used the png option to export from said website instead but now having the svg option would really help in a larger scale usage. Can someone look into this? bike illustration.svg
  19. I've been having an issue where I export a paragraph of text into SVG (without converting it to curves but relying on the system fonts) and some characters render differently in the browser (tested on both on the latest desktop firefox and the latest android samsung browser) as seen in the image below: On closer inspection it seems that the SVG adds certain tags to certain characters, isolating them - without an apparent reason however. it is easy to reproduce: create a new document use the type text tool type "Other All" as text (using Arial font) (for some reason the issue appears if there is another word before the word All! Other tested strings that produce the fluff are "A All B" and the "Unlock All Features" string) export to SVG The SVG should have isolated the Al characters into an unnecessary <tspan> element: <g id="Artboard11" serif:id="Artboard1"> <text x="209.036px" y="520.05px" style="font-family:'ArialMT', 'Arial', sans-serif;font-size:36px;">Other <tspan x="307.087px 331.099px " y="520.05px 520.05px ">Al</tspan>l</text> </g>
  20. 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?
  21. I'm creating simple Bezier line drawings in Designer and exporting them as SVG files. When I import them into Carbide Create, a CAM app for running a CNC machine, the scaling is too small, generally by a factor of about 5.6. I can't just scale up for two reasons. The lines get choppy and the scale factor is not always exactly the same. I've tried a number of parameter changes to no avail. I have tried this process with iDraw and Inkscape, both export with proper scaling. When I import a Designer created SVG into either Inkscape or iDraw, I also must rescale the image although not necessarily with the same factor as Carbide Create. So, I suspect this is more an issue of how Designer is handling the SVGs.
  22. 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 sorts of other options, and even slices of objects with the same height will export at different dimensions. It makes it practically impossible to predict what size your object will be. (as an aside, I thought DPI was completely irrelevant to vector - why is it even an option in a vector format?!) So is reliable scale something Affinity Designer just can't do? How are people delivering documents for print if they don't know how the printer will interpret the dimensions of their final files? I dumped Creative Cloud, bought the Affinity hoping to replace AI and now am faced with going back to Creative Cloud and getting stung with higher fees as a result of leaving. For my line of work this seems like really simple stuff...
  23. 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 it so the words can fit inside of it. 2. When uploading the file into Cricut Design Space, instead of the outline of the circle I have created (3 of them), Design Space fills in the circles with the associated color. I want just the outline of the shape and not the fill. Any idea what I am doing wrong? I am using the file as an example of what I would try to do because I am assuming that whatever I do with any other sort of shape would lead to the same results. If I just want an outline of a given shape, why doesn't Cricut recognize it as it was drawn? Thanks for any help you can provide. even if it is a link or such pointing me to another resource.

  24. I am posting this feedback in this section of the forum, I hope this help to improve the software Not going to talk about the bugs, I hope all of them get fixed I am going to compare my experience with other softares, such as Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape (the ones I use the most) For the few time I have used the software I can tell is very minimalistic, (I really hope this is not because the Ipad version limitations, as PC can do much more than a Ipad, so I hope PC version is not being limited to keep in the same quality of the Ipad version) Or maybe is the way the software is going to be, as it could be a minimalistic software not planned to have advanced features, I would like to know which kind of software Affinity Designer aim to be, minimalistic or advanced? Developer team care for both personas this mean less time to focus to improve designer persona and possibly priorize pixel persona over vector persona (The software is meant to be a vector graphic software, rather than a raster graphic software) The exporting persona is not intuitive and does not have much more to offer than the traditional exporting in the user menu The software have very few settings and some of them are not compatible with SVG format (The standard file format for vector graphics) The software have very few tools and some of them are not compatible with SVG format (The standard file format for vector graphics) There are very few tools for vector graphics, and the customization for them are very tricky and not intuitive & limited _ What I suggest is to focus on introducing new tools&features&settings to work with vector graphics and improve the ones that the software already have Currently I don`t use this software because of the limitations exposed, as other vector graphic software have to offer much more optimized tools&features for vector format (SVG), I really hope it get more complexity eventually as for now it is not a stand alone software for its limitations & few features for vector graphics.
  25. I have created a simple design which I hope to use in mapbox as an icon. mapbox requires svg. I export my design to svg but when I load into mapbox, the fill colors are not there. the icon is "there" in my custom styles list but the colors do not appear at all. I have tried multiple different settings on the AD Export More options from the svg export tab (making sure to check Use hex colors, flatten, etc) , but they all have the same result when brought into mapbox. Mapbox has troubleshooting for Illustrator and other problems here - https://docs.mapbox.com/help/troubleshooting/studio-svg-upload-errors/#common-issues I cannot find the equivalent settings for what is suggested for Illustrator in Designer. I also tried to understand the svg file by changing the .svg to .txt and examining it in notepad. I checked the various tags against support / unsupported elements, and I cannot see any problems (admittedly I am not a web designer however) I can see the .svg in both firefox and chrome. Thank you for any help. Windows 10, AD 1.8.2 training.afdesign training_7_unchecksetviewbox.svg
