  1. I found article about EPS, PDF and PostScript file format here. Acording to Adobe: If I well understand EPS is not propetiary format. So then is a posibility get strictly the same outlook of each EPS file in Affinity? At this stage of development in some place is not the same what is normal. If we talk about PSD and AI format they have locked specification and for each file is not posible reproduce strictly and get the same results what Affinity Team write somewhere on the forum. In text MJ Rutter (2005) here stands: How then look this issue with EPS files? Is it a the same problem as with PSD, AI files?
  2. Hey there, so when importing or opening an EPS-file which was exported with RGB as color-format into Affinity Designer, it will always be handled as CMYK-File and therefore the colors are changing drastically. In Illustrator, the same file is opened with the correct colors and in correct color format (RGB). Do I miss a Default-/Import-/Color-Setting here? When opening the same file in Illustrator and then exporting it with the option for "Include CMYK-PostScript in RGB-Files" checked, the file opens correctly colored in Affinity Designer. The chosen PostScript-Level (2 or 3) on export did NOT made any difference to this behaviour, only the previously described checked option! As I want to ditch Illustrator and I have a huge amount of assets (bought online, not build by me) which behave like this, it's not an option to open up every file and export them once more. As Illustrator is able to open them up the correct way, I assume that this is an error/bug of Affinity Designer and does not occur due to a corrupt file. I attached a screenshot of the same file opened in AI and AD and a PNG with the intended colors. Greetings, Johannes (I hate to say the name of the competitive software this often in this forum...*sigh*)
  3. Opening an EPS File: This ist what the source I downloaded it from and Adobe Illustrator says it should look like: This is, what Affinity Designer think it looks like: Please keep an eye on the completely screwed layers in AD ... :-( Known problem? Any clue? The file is to big to attach ... but I can provide it ... Cheers, Timo
  4. Hallo Wie erstellt mann im Affinity Designer Vektordateien die für Schneideplotter verwendet werden können? Bin dabei, von Adobe Illustrator zu Affinity Designer zu wechseln. Leider aber funktionieren die Exportierten EPS oder SVG Datein nicht mehr für den Plotter. Was mache ich falsch? Muss ich die irgendwie speziell aufbereiten? Bitte um Hilfe!
  5. I downloaded an iStockPhoto EPS thinking it would make my life easier. My wife and dog won't come near me because I've been swearing at the computer for hours. It was obviously designed in RGB, but it opens in CMYK. There needs to be a work around. When the image opens it's total pixelated shite. It's garbage and I can't work with it. Changing the color profile doesn't work because the image has already been rendered in CMYK and is totally jacked. It's like I opened a charles dickens novel in google translate and it is assigning it as chinese and then I can translate it back. The integrity of it is already gone. I have searched the web for hours trying to find a cool little program I can use to just imbed a color profile into an eps so it will open right but all I get is a million articles on color profiles for Adobe Illustrator. Please please for the love of God help me with this.Buttons.zip
  6. I have run into a problem exporting a file into a format a printer is able to use. Since I'm not a professional designer, there are significant gaps in my knowledge I don't quite know how to articulate and resolve. Please refer to the uploads to help. 1. I created a business card in Affinity (pmb bizcard outside). Problem: I submitted a JPEG of the image to the printer and was told: 2. the file color was saved RGB and needed to be CMYK. I knew there would be color differences between the on screen and printed versions, so I asked the printer to adjust the color to best match the print with the rgb screen. He said he needed an EPS file to do that not a JPEG and he gave me a pantone color book for me to match the cmyk screen colors to the desired print output colors: 3 I did that (PMB bizcart outside cmyk. Ithought it looked awful on screen...like illustration creamed soup.). Once I had the new colors in place I exported the file as an EPS 4. And got this, (PBM Bizcard Outside cmyk. eps) which issues I did not know about when I passed it to the printer...who was so frustrated with it, he got mad at me. I didn't quite understand until I opened the EPS file itself in Affinity to check. What the heck happened, and how do I export into a file format that a professional on Illustrator can manipulate and use? 5. I need a fix to get my original version color corrected and printed by someone who is not just going to upload a JPEG and throw the dice. Any suggestions?

  7. Hi, i exported an EPS file and it breaks the path strangely. Attached the original file and the exported eps version. Anyone experienced the same? Thanks Alberto ExportEps.afdesign ExportEps.eps
  8. It would be very useful for the batch function to be able to save as SVG and to be able to select a whole folder as the input rather than individual files
  9. Does the design loose some of it's effect like gradient/shadows when it is exported to EPS or SVG? I exported a design to EPS and SVG. I had a gradient button. I can't edit the features.
  10. Hello I know it's a known issue but I send you a file to test. ^_^ This EPS (made with illustrator) with a gradient is rendered differently in Illustrator than Designer, see pictures and try to open the file please. The gradient is not correct. :huh: Sometimes also the dashed lines. If I export from Designer the eps looks incorrect anyway :ph34r: thank you, Denis 350.eps
  11. Hello there, I work in AD. The software is great, thanks for that. I need to export to PDF or SVG or EPS, does not matter to me ... including layers, that I could open the file in Adobe Illustrator and could see the layers. I was trying to find out on affinity forum, but I was not successful. Is there a way to do that please? Unfortunately, exporting to PDF does not do the job. Nothing is rasterized and after opening in illustrator there is just one layer instead of 3 created in AD. And what more, there are separated objects, the ones with fill and the ones with strokes. I mean, in AD it is an object with fill and stroke and after exporting to PDF and opening in AI these are two different objects, one with stroke and one with fill. I don't know why is that ? Thanks for help. I attached a file. 1100235_58_ultra_terno.afdesign
  12. Hello I have some problem while importing and exporting eps files. When I import a CMYK eps, Designer converts it assigning a RGB profile. So I need to select again all lines (it shows that colors are correct (0,0,0,100K) but it is wrong because in reality it converted those colors into RGB (I see it opening in Illustrator)); so I have to go again to the "color select sliders", drag the K slider left and right again to 100% and then export in "eps (Print mode)". Is this maybe becaus of "print mode eps export"? If yes how can I export an eps in CMYK? In addition I need of a way to not convert on opening, and not assign a color profile, just read colors applied to the lines. thank you! Denis
  13. When I try to open or import the attached EPS barcode the number are missing at the bottom. It is complete when I open it in Serif, Corel or Illustrator. I can even open it in Serif and copy and paste it into Affinity Designer and it is all there. barcode (1).eps
  14. Hi. Most of my clients need an EPS vector format but it seems Affinity can't fully export this in vector. It needs to rasterize simple features such as translucent gradients. Any way I can get a vector EPS working? I tried setting the export as rasterize 'nothing' but then it screws the transparency and lines. EDIT: I noticed Illustrator seems to use a native EPS format so let's put it another way. I used to copy paste vector shapes from one software to another like Illustrator> photoshop and keep the transparency. But AD pastes an EPS version (which doesn't support transparency). My only workaround is exporting SVG and then import into PS or something similar. The only real problem now is having to deliver Illustrator svg edit compatible files. AFAIK .svg does not export CMYK profiles.
  15. When I open the attached eps file, it looks OK in adobe illustrator, but unusable in affinity designer. In affinity designer it looks like a pixel graphic and scaling does not help.
  16. I am using affinity designer 1.5.4 and When I am opening any .eps file which created in .ai (Adobe Illustrator) the file opened but the text is not editable, it came as curved individual elements. Any idea how to get the editable text?
  17. I just purchased Designer, and am very pleased with smoothness of the software, but I have big problem with exporting into eps format. It turns out that exporting it into eps rasterizes some effects like transparencies, conical gradient etc. It says: "Some areas will be rasterised". I really need to resolve this matter since have a ton of clients expecting editable ai/eps files to deliver.
  18. Hey, guys! I have a feeling that this is going to be a long post. I've been using Affinity for over a year, I guess. Never had a single problem. Recently I got some print jobs: labels and posters. Both of them returned errors from the print shops. At first, people could not handle PDFs. They could see them but not print them. I'm not sure how they were used but in Brazil, pirate copies of Corel Draw are wildly popular. They probably tried to import the file and Corel Draw rejected it. No biggy. Quite common actually. Label guys reported errors regarding EPS. The Corel thing is certainly a factor, but I rarely had problems with Corel and EPS. Things got really strange when a client tried to print PNG from our fanpage. The print shop reported error while importing PNG! I've had handled Affinity generated PNG through Krita, GIMP, inkscape. Never a single problem. Then I asked a friend of mine, registered legal user of Adobe CC Suite and neither Illustrator nor Photoshop could handle my PNG! Then, GIMP reported and error with Color Profiles in two different PNGs. One color profile for each file. GIMP asked me about assigning new ones and opened up the files, which I exported (from GIMP) to make new working PNGs for the print shop, who's confirmed that they now work perfectly. Weird, isn't it? I've made working PDFs for printing for over a year and never had any kind of problem. I use Affinities for web to the point of getting excited about how easy it is but even my web PNGs are failing somehow. You see them here www.facebook.com/spavendanova (my client) but I have just discovered some issues. I appreciate your attention. Luiz.
  19. Since you don't offer a normal support and I don't have much time, I will try to get a response here. I have made a file with some objects on a transparent background and I export it as an eps-file for export, but when I open it, it opens with a white background. What is this and how do I avoid it? I hope someone can give me a response asap and I also hope you can offer some normal tech support some day. And when I open the exported file in AD it is rasterized and not a vector-file. I am sorry, but this is really a disappointment then. Perhaps it is me who don't understand vector and only thought I did, since AD was so easy and intuitive to use, but it was probably just and illusion. The design should be simple. I use a logo I have made earlier which is also a vector-file, add a line to it, which I thought would be vector - and then some numbers and letters which definitely should be vector. No effects or gradients or anything. Now I tried to export setting rasterizing to Nothing and that created a file worse than anything. The nice line around turned into a thick line and the whole image was turned into a chaotic jumble with white squares all over. So, if this is not a bug, it seems like it isn't as easy as it seemed to be to create vector-stuff in AD at all. And what to do with this now? I add the actual file, but when I export it I deselect the blue background. OK, so now I took out the encircling line and drew it again, as it seems like it had been converted into a rasterised layer and the same thing with one of the logo-files embedded, which is an eps-file, probably because I used the eraser on it. Now I opened the original eps-file and modified it and exported it as a new eps-file and imported it to the design again. Now it became more transparent, but with white squares behind the two logo-layers - which, again, are eps-files but obviously are being converted into rasterised files by AD. How do I avoid that? I thought vector stayed vector. And if I allow rasterizing it all turn out with a white background. Why? The two files added are vector-files (eps) and the line should be vector as far as I understand, and so are the numbers and letters. So why doesn't it export as a transparent vector? And where is support when you need it? GGklistrmerke.afdesign
  20. hi all, i have a question that i hope you might be able to solve: when i export my afdesign files to eps and my supplier opens them with coral draw, the size changes, e.g. from the original 120x120cm to 90x90cm. this happens all the time and neither he or i can explain why that happens - anyone got an idea?
  21. 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.
  22. Can I open older Adobe AI, PSD, and EPS files in Affinity Designer and work with them with out problems?
  23. 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.
  24. Here I have this file http://www.shutterstock.com/pic.mhtml?id=149427026in EPS format. This is what the this EPS file looks like opened in Photoshop CC, rasterized at 1667px x 1667px (I'm zooming in a bit on the bottom part): Same file in Affinity Photo: Same file in Affinity Designer: Same file in Designer but three copies over each other:
  25. 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.
