  1. Hi I am trying to export a drawing as SVG so that I can cut it in a cutting machine. And sometimes I want it to be placed on a printed circuit board. But anywhere I try to use SVGs exported from Affinity Designer 2, they appear with incorrect size. Lets say I set the DPI in Affinity Designer 2 of my document to 72 dpi. I also set type to Print and Document Units to mm I draw a circle of 60mm diameter. I then mark it and export I then try to export it as an svg I exported circle.svg circle.svg Now if I import this in another app, it becomes too small, not at all 60x60mm. Why? I dont know, but looking into the exported svg source code I think I understand what happened. <?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%" viewBox="0 0 172 172" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xml:space="preserve" xmlns:serif="http://www.serif.com/" style="fill-rule:evenodd;clip-rule:evenodd;stroke-linecap:round;stroke-linejoin:round;stroke-miterlimit:1.5;"> <circle cx="85.539" cy="85.539" r="85.039" style="fill:none;stroke:rgb(255,0,0);stroke-width:1px;"/> </svg> As you can see above, it uses 172 instead of 60mm and the viewport is set to 100%. Why is it not possible to export and svg with true mm or inches?
  2. For vectors only files, from the Export Settings, changing the "Use DPI" doesn't embed DPI property in the SVG (always 72DPI). Instead, the subsequent file has pixel size changed directly proportional to the DPI changed. For files with images, increasing the DPI has the same effect as the files having vectors only. However when you decrease the DPI, the subsequent SVG file will have BOTH the DPI and pixel size increased. (e.g. 1920*1080px@72DPI > Use DPI: 30 > export SVG > 2133.333333*1200px@192DPI) DPI is embedded in the SVG when opened with Affinity. But when I opened it in Inkscape, it was reported has 800*450px which is directly proportional to the DPI decrease. If you transform an image to make it smaller, then the exported SVG will have the same effect as what mentioned in point 2 above when decreasing the DPI. However, if you make the image larger instead, the exported SVG file will have no size and DPI changes. Anything mentioned above will have the SVG file having objects sizes and position shifted. (<--no way to work pixel perfectly) Exported SVG files will have some objects grouped under "Layer" while some not. So inconsistent. (<--what's the purpose of such structure? Seem to be unnecessary...) Exported SVG has bitmap objects added 1 pixel width of transparent pixel around the edges (<--so bothering when align images in SVG) It's so confusing and the export outcome is unpredictable and seemingly unnecessary.😕 Can anyone explain point 1,2,3 to me? Why Affinity make SVGs like that? Related bug 4,5,6 mentioned:
  3. Affnity Illustrator CC 2021: Client file so can't show more than this, but it's very simple shapes. Btw, the reason I need to pass this through Illustrator is because expanding curves in Affinity is still messed up, and Illustrator does it accurately. However, this is the first time I've seen Affinity fail at even this level. Guess I'll try using PDF next.
  4. When you draw any shapes, lines, etc; like rectagle with 400 mm (Width/Length) and export the file on svg format. Affinity Designer don´t keep the dimensions of the objects on the file exported. For the test use Affinity Designer (ver 1.8.4) and Inkscape (ver 1.0.1) Any suggestion for this problem ?? Thks! Gustavo Davila
  5. I'm using Illustrator to cut things with my Glowforge laser, and now trying to use Affinity designer. When I use Illustrator the results are stable. When I use Affinity the results are not correct and do not come out as expected. All files are without fill. Today I wanted to cut a square of 18 mm x 18 mm. If I made a file with one 18 mm x 18 mm square with a symbol inside and exported it to SVG, it came out as "around" 43 mm x 43 mm most of the time in SVG and . When I just use a square of 18 x 18 mm, it opens with 18,1 to 18,3 mm size, and not always square, one side can be 18,1 and the other 18,274 aso. I have also tested a square 18 mm x 65 mm, made in Affinity. When I open the SVG from affinity designer in Illustrator, the size is 43,181 mm x 155,934 mm, and line with has changed from 0,1 mm to 1,757 mm. Opened in Affinity the same SVG file now the size is 75 mm x 270,8 mm, and the line has changed to 4.2 pts, when it started as 0,1 mm, since I use mm as document units. I have tested different files to PDF and SVG, and they all change in size.
  6. I exported an object from Affinity Designer as an SVG file. Opening this file in both Inkscape and in fusion360 showed incorrect size (they were both however consistent). Am I missing an option?
  7. 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.
