  1. The attached image is made of simple strokes and results in a raster when exported as an SVG (raster inside SVG). I've even tried to expand the strokes and then export. Even then, with no brush used, it results in a raster. I've play with PDF and EPS too. I can't seem to get this graphic out as a vector. Suggestions? Cheers.
  2. Hello, I have exported one of my drawings as an SVG and reopened in Affinity and some of the content does not show. The layers show that they are there but the content is missing. I would like to know if this is only a bug when reopening in Afdesign or does it effect other vector editing programs as well. --Jeremy
  3. I downloaded the AD trial version onto my Macbook Pro running 10.7.5. I have no trouble running the Adobe CS/CC apps and my machine meets all the minimum requirements for your app. Whenever I try to export any file as an SVG (even just a simple circle or square), nothing is created. No files show up anywhere. Other export methods do work. Then after trying the SVG export, whenever I try to close the file, I get the spinning beach ball and must Force Quit the app. Is this a known bug? Do you have any recommendations? I really wanted to like this app as an alternative to Illustrator
  4. The question is in the title... is PDF / SVG export functionality fully implemented? I ask because in my test cases I'm seeing gradients, and shapes with effects getting clipped + rasterized rather then being fully editable gradients + effects. Ideally any effects should use SVG filters when exported. This was always a problem I had with DrawPlus. I often had to export out at really high DPI to remove any gradient dithering, and import it into Illustrator where I vectorized the rasterized portions. The results I'm getting right now are disappointing. Though the PNG export from a large vec
  5. When you export an SVG, whole document gets exported. An option to export only the image (shapes), without empty portions of background page would be very nice.
  6. Just purchased AD and spent some time test-driving it -- feels nice, intuitive UI. Personally, I was very interested in SVG export for web work and I was happy to see it under the supported formats. Having done a quick test, it certainly worked but I had to edit the SVG file afterwords to get it working 'responsively' (sized via CSS, using percentages). Currently, the SVG is exported with its size determined by the 'width' and 'height' attributes. For example, an object defined as 50x50px object will have width="50" height="50" baked in. By replacing these attributes with viewBox="0 0 50 5
  7. Hallo Affinity Team, I'm looking for an alternative to Illustrator and have tried out Affinity. Unfortunately, I'm rather disappointed with the SVG Export in Affinity. Some layers in my vector graphics are coded as inline PNGs (data:image/png;base64). It would also be nice if the layer names were also exported in the SVG, so that I can target them in the code later. Thanks, Gary
  8. I have a chart that I have composed using a couple of boxes converted to curves. With the outermost one, bordered in red, the very top should have a weight of 0.9pt. On the afdesign file it does, but on the SVG it has reduced in width for some reason. Any ideas? Any suggested workarounds? TIA dive_times.afdesign dive_times.svg
  9. I have a simple drawing (attached), just vectors created entirely in AD. When I copy and paste into other applications I get a variety of strange results. This may be something odd in AD's clipboard content and is certainly inconvenient. Pasting into: Pages 4.3 (my intended destination) sometimes works and sometimes pastes a file name (eg file:///var/folders/h1/djnp3y4j1x5bk3sb9dszfn4c0000gp/T/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner/Clipboard.svg). Selecting just the ellipse can give different results to selecting all the objects. Pages 5.5.1 (the latest) sometimes does the same as 4.3 and sometim
  10. Icon Fonts are a brilliant way to manage scalable art for the new flat world of web and app design and quickly becoming more popular: http://fontawesome.io https://icomoon.io http://fontello.com Request: Font Designer Persona - Affinity Designer is well positioned to provide THE ultimate on designer tool. The first step is to enable exporting of slices to SVG. This could be followed by more enhancements up to and including generation of font files (or json) and supporting CSS. With the ubiquity of icon fonts, font editing is not just for font designers any more. Creating
  11. Hi, I am posting here because I am facing an issue which I do not understand at all... I have a bunch of files created with Inkscape, which use Trebuchet MS font. And when I try to import one of them (or directly open) in Affinity Designer, it fails to load the font "TrebuchetMS" (without the space), and replaces all font with a default one, which I definitely do not want... I had the same issue with Illustrator a while ago, and I really don't understand. If I open the SVG file in a text editor, the Trebuchet MS font is well defined and written, and I cannot find the "TrebuchetMS" chain anyw
  12. It would be great if there was an option on the export to make the SVG minimal in file size. As an example, right now it is producing SVG at 11kb but when I "clean" them they drop down to 7kb. It would be great if this could be done in all one step.
  13. Hola, I love Affinity and I'm working a lot with it. I have a lot of problems exporting vector files. I've read the forums about these troubles and I didn't find anything about this bug, so here I go: When exporting SVG files, there is a bug around the strokes. -If I open the exported file in Adobe Illustrator, some strokes have disappeared. -If I open it in Affinity, the strokes are there but they have changed their color and caps, others have been rasterised and some others have disappeared too. (I understand that the shadows are in 'multiply' mode and it can't be exported, tho
  14. Hi I know you've already got a ton of stuff on your list of things to do, but is there any chance of adding support for accessibility features for SVG on export? (and preserving them on import if they are already there) http://www.sitepoint.com/tips-accessible-svg/ I think it boils down to the ability to add <title>......</title> <desc>.......</desc> at the beginning of the svg document. As well as, if possible, aria-labelledby="title desc" role="img" to the <svg> tag. If you could enter this information at the same time as you do the e
  15. Hi I want to build an svg graphic that I can use like an image map. So I wanted to make some of the paths clickable links eg: <a xlink:href="" > <path id="campania" d="M564.55 581.71l-2.24-0.73 0.82-3.38 -0.66-3.4 -5.95-10.98 -3.58-2.48 -0.52-3.53 -2.05-3.73 -7.48-8.95 -2.91-2.67 4.28-1.26 1.04-2.15 2.1-0.94 1.53-1.42 0.83-7.98 -1.12-3.07 2.53-0.84 3.17-2.61 1.44-0.48 1.99 1.28 3.14 5.2 2.38 0.72 3.43 0.04 0.7-0.8 -0.28-2.23 -1.93-2.49 2.81-3.92 3.07 0.38 4.41-0.37 3.6 0.97 4.39 2.42 7.89 2.82 2.16 0.26 2.65 2.95 4.5 0.1 2.51 1.73 5.46-2.99 6.68-0.61 1.48-1.15 0.97-1.98 3.54
  16. Hi I've just imported an svg file, copied and pasted it into another, did some resizing, changed the layer names, and then exported the combined document (a map with place names) to svg. I ended up with circles being converted into paths. To give one example: <circle cx="210.4" cy="230.6" id="Genova (w9) marker" r="3" class="style0"/> <g id="Genova (w9) label" transform="translate(0,0)" x="215.4" y="230.6"> <text id="Genova (w9) name" x="215.4" y="230.6" class="style1">Genova </text></g> was converted to: <g id="Genova marker">
  17. EDIT: Sorry I forgot to check the answer to my question in the questions section. I'd have deleted this thread but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. At the moment if I import a file with a bunch of svg shapes Affinity converts these to paths. It would be really handy to be able to preserve these as svg shapes. For example if I have a bunch of map markers that look like this: <circle cx="168.5" cy="581.2" id="Alghero marker" r="3" class="style0"/> <g id="Algherolabel" transform="translate(0,0)" x="173.5" y="581.2"> <text id="Alghero name" x="173.5" y="581.2" c
  18. Hi I had a couple of problems importing an svg file with the CSS statements in the head of the document - AD correctly interpreted the global styles, but seems to have ignored a style attached to one particular element; - I got the error message "The following files are missing: "Open Sans", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif" in response to a CSS statement about text labels. I'm uploading my file so you can tell whether I've got something wrong. I appreciate this may be more about features that AFD doesn't yet have. Thanks
  19. Hi Thanks again for the improvements to the SVG export in the Beta. Would it be possible to have the option to group CSS statements at the head of the SVG document (along the lines of what CSS Optimiser does)? Thanks.
  20. Hi Anybody can posdkazat as can be exported, for example, in the format and get svg file without the element <image>? that I get when I export: <?xml version="1.0" standalone="no"?> <!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd"> <svg width="2400px" height="2400px" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xml:space="preserve" style="fill-rule:evenodd;clip-rule:evenodd;stroke-linecap:round;stroke-linejoin:round;stroke-miterlimit:1.41421;"> <g> <g
  21. Dear developers, Is it possible to add the viewBox tag to SVG export? It could echo the width and height tags for instance (that would be relatively easy I think). I appreciate the SVG output of Designer: it is among the cleanest I have seen.
  22. A box of 50 mm x 50 mm in Designer will be 208,333 mm x 208,333 mm in a svg file. (print-ready 300dpi - only no pixels) Remco
  23. Hi I don't know if this is a question or a feature request. I'm working on a map for a website, and what I'd like to do is use CSS to control the fill colour for a particular region. So I want to tinker with the svg in a text editor. The only problem is the layer names aren't preserved when I export to svg. Am I missing something? Is there a way to preserve them?
