  1. Hi Guys, I have been trying to export png's of icons for a website. These are pretty small but there's a lot of them as they are used in CSS sprites. Normally I would export these as a gif or png8, but your settings only allow export to be dithered and that gives me some real quality issues. I'd love it if we could have an option not to dither the png8 and gif exports. I've attached the following files so you can see the problem: - site-product-icons11-OLD - The original png8 file out of Photoshop, undithered - I have just added 1 icon to the bottom of this file site-product-icons11a128 - 128 export (dithered) out of Affinity Photo - you can see the problem in spots of colour on say the LR logo 900px down and the steel logo at 450px down site-product-icons11a256 - as above but more colours to see if that was the issue site-product-icons11 - png24 export not showing these issues (no surprise really), but is almost 3x the file size. Thanks
  2. So I'm using the 1.7.0.14. I have 2 documents open... #1 has 13 artboards setup to export using "continuous export". #2 has 2 artboards setup to export using "continuous export". Just as I was typing this forum post #1 exported and auto-opened all of the files into Preview. It's been randomly doing that over the last hour or two. What's triggering it, I don't know. I've not touched the file for quite a while but it randomly regenerates all of the artboard exports. Seems like a bug to me. What say you? (Off topic: how do I turn off the feature to auto open the exported files in Preview?)
  3. Something's up with my copy of Affinity Photo (desktop, Mac). The other day my studio palettes started randomly resizing themselves. Today, I can no longer export to JPG and Affinity is lagging enormously, and giving me strange massive spikes in RAM usage that I've not seen before (no other programs on my Mac seem similarly affected). On export, it simply hangs on the progress bar without progressing. When I eventually cancel the process, I'm met with a Tried different files, different root folders, different destination folders, restarting the software, restarting the computer. I'm reduced to taking screenshots just so I can get proofs to clients. Anyone else experience this?
  4. Hi, I've been studying the best way to export to Adobe Illustrator since many of my clients request the final file as .AI, and of course I prefer to work using Affinity designer, but I'm having some problems with PDF export getting many annoying rasterized shapes and images, for now I see that SVG (export for Web) is the best option for while, but still have some small bugs opening in another vector software, in this case, I notice that if you export svg and try to edit its contents: Transparency Tool with Gradient Tool / Gradient Tool - fill mode Ellipse If you apply these both tools in a path/shape, the SVG create many "groups" of layer and raster with clip, that is not very optimized Strokes with rounded corner become with points (no bezier path) Some case of using Layer fx or a complex vector object the layer become raster (image with clipping) Opening the same SVG exported on Affinity, the bug is the same Well for while the bugs seem more about optimization for SVG files, as I need to export to Adobe Illustrator in order to deliver the files to my clients, it is possible in somehow future to have an option to export as AI, would be perfect and less overwhelming while working with both software, I really wish the best of luck for the Serif to be bigger than Adobe is now. anyway, thanks once again.

  5. Im experiencing the weirdest issue: When I go to export my Affinity Photo file (Aprox. 33mb), and I select Jpeg, at 85% quality with no dimensional changes 600px X 1200px at 72 dpi, Im getting massive files. 88mb jpegs! That is insane. I have never had this issue with AP. I cant image what is creating this phenomenon. If I then open this jpeg and flatten it, the file size goes back to what you would expect. (300 k) I was under the impression that Jpeg have no layers and are flat by definition. What is going on here? Any suggestions?
  6. Looking at the SVG output at the moment SVG's always get a 100% width and 100% height, meaning they always scale up or down to a parent-window (in a browser). But there are a lot of usecases we don't want SVGs to scale on websites and if we do it would be nice if we could set how the responsiveness would behave, so to wich windowborder the image would stick and if we want to keep the aspect ratio while scaling. These are all very simple SVG attributes that only have to be added to the svg when we need it. Browsers are doing the rest. At the moment there is no setting in the SVG settings to turn the auto scaling (100% width/height) behaviour off in the SVG, meaning we have to manually take these attributes out of the SVGs each time we export an SVG if we don't want autoscale. It would be a lot easier, faster and less time consuming if we could just set these settings once inside the SVG export options to save it with our own preset. So what I ask for in the SVG export settings dialog is: - A switch to choose between using document width/height (keep size) or 100% width/height (auto scale) - A listbox to choose the 'preserveAspectRatio' attribute in the SVG so we can set this to: - none, xMinYMin, xMidYMin, xMaxYMin, xMinYMid, xMidYMid (the default), xMaxYMid, xMinYMax, xMidYMax, xMaxYMax (as described here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/preserveAspectRatio) These are important settings for exporting SVGs for Web and not very difficult to add to the dialog cause they only change 3 attributes in the svg tag. But they speed up the process of SVG exports a lot because these changes don't need to be made by hand in a texteditor after each export! Thanks!
  7. Hello, I have a problem on AD for iPad. My illustration of eps files that are exported from AD for iPad are always refused to upload to Shutterstock. The reject reason is because the file is less than 4MP. I found out that the eps file size is smaller than the original size. The original file size is always more than 4MP (for example 11000px X 4000px, 5000px X 5000px). However, the exported eps file size is 2052.8px X 647.4px, 1200px X 1200px... I do not find out the rule of the percentage to be shrunk so I do not expect what size I should set the original file. I would like to upload eps files to shutterstock because that is gradually more needed in the world. I attached screen shots. "IMG_0323" shows eps artboard size and "IMG_0324" shows original art board size. Please help me.
  8. I've downloaded Affinity Designer Trial to see if I can get it to export an SVG of a purely vector design. For this project, it's incredibly important that the final product be an SVG that has zero rasterized elements in there so it can scale to multiple screen resolutions. The problem is that, while I've got the design looking good (well, as good as I can get it, being a programmer and not a designer!), when I export to SVG **without rasterizing unsupported effects** -- which I thought SVG supported shadows and gradients on a transparent background, right? -- the file has neither of those. I've attached the afdesign doc and a resulting SVG. Tried reading said SVG in Chrome and Firefox as well as Apple's Quick Look (which I believe uses Preview's built in magic magicness) and the shapes and colors are fine, just no drop shadow, no gradient, no transparency. Input appreciated. Thanks all. SVG Looks like this in quicklook: Postal Logo (Affinity) 2.svg Postal Logo 2.afdesign
  9. Hi, it would be great if you add CSS export feature like CSS Hat (https://csshat.com). I think that every HTML & CSS coder will buy your Affinity Designer and stop using expensive Photoshop :-) Thanks. Petr
  10. Hi, The last couple of weeks i’ve been using Designer to draw simple vector graphics to use in Apple Motion. By exporting the art boards as PDF files I’m able to import the shapes into Apple Motion without losing resolution. However, since this is the first time I’m using Designer instead of Adobe Illustrator, I'm realising I’m missing a feature. In Illustrator I had an plug-in that allowed me to export the shapes as Motion shapes. The Motion shapes then could be easily animated in Apple Motion by applying the build in behaviours. Although the ability to export the shapes in Illustrator as Motion shapes was not a feature of Illustrator itself, I would love to see this feature to appear in Affinity Designer. So my feature request; Will you guys and girls add the ability to export a shape as a (native) Motion shape? — Joey
  11. I realise Affinity Photo doesn't allow animated GIF editing currently (only the first frame is loaded), and i read in the help forum it isn't planned. However, I would love it if: 1) When an animated gif is loaded, each frame is loaded into a timeline, where you can set the time delay for each frame. 2) Each frame is on its own layer for editing 3) The edited gif could then be exported as an animated gif. It is one of the only major features I miss from Photoshop, and yep, I am aware you try to avoid direct comparisons, and I understand why. So far, the program is great though! Thanks.
  12. I have started to author SVG elements for web design using affinity designer, but the svg code it outputs is quite heavy and messy (using copy as svg option in preferences). In this case I think its because I have an object that is rotated 180 degrees, so its running transformations on my paths and groups in the SVG code. Is there any way to "bake" the transforms in designer. So say I move, rotate, and scale an object, then I would like to bake its transforms so that the shape is rewritten (svg code wise) as not rotated or scaled, in essence applying my modifications to the objects underlying definition. This is a very common practice in 3D modeling. <svg width="100%" height="100%" viewBox="0 0 1152 150" 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-linejoin:round;stroke-miterlimit:1.41421;"> <g transform="matrix(1,0,0,1,-4757,-100)"> <g id="Header-Shape" serif:id="Header Shape" transform="matrix(-0.848306,-1.03888e-16,1.26688e-16,-1.03448,5909,5615.86)"> <path d="M1358,5187C1131.5,5217.42 905.5,5235.33 679,5235.33C452.833,5235.33 226.167,5217.47 0,5187.13L0,5332L1358,5332L1358,5187Z" style="fill:url(#_Linear1);"/> </g> <g id="Header-border" serif:id="Header border" transform="matrix(1,0,0,1,-843,-237)"> <path d="M6752,486.861C6560.14,455.482 6367.86,437 6176,437C5983.86,437 5792.14,455.529 5600,487L5600,486C5792.14,454.529 5983.86,436 6176,436C6367.86,436 6560.14,454.482 6752,485.861L6752,486.861Z" style="fill:rgb(46,46,46);"/> </g> <g id="Header-border1" serif:id="Header border" transform="matrix(1,0,0,1,-843,-238)"> <path d="M6752,486.861C6560.14,455.482 6367.86,437 6176,437C5983.86,437 5792.14,455.529 5600,487L5600,486C5792.14,454.529 5983.86,436 6176,436C6367.86,436 6560.14,454.482 6752,485.861L6752,486.861Z" style="fill:rgb(56,56,56);"/> </g> </g> <defs> <linearGradient id="_Linear1" x1="0" y1="0" x2="1" y2="0" gradientUnits="userSpaceOnUse" gradientTransform="matrix(-3.24818e-14,-145,176.823,-2.66361e-14,1358,5332)"><stop offset="0" style="stop-color:rgb(64,64,64);stop-opacity:1"/><stop offset="1" style="stop-color:rgb(51,51,51);stop-opacity:1"/></linearGradient> </defs> </svg> This is what I get right now as output, but I would like to not have any of the "Transform=" and "gradientTransform=" attributes, more like the follwoing striped down code, which dousn't work because of how Affinity outputting the code: <svg width="100%" height="100%" viewBox="0 0 1152 150" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg"> <g> <path style="fill:url(#a);" d="M1358,5187C1131.5,5217.42 905.5,5235.33 679,5235.33C452.833,5235.33 226.167,5217.47 0,5187.13L0,5332L1358,5332L1358,5187Z"/> <path style="fill:rgb(46,46,46);" d="M6752,486.861C6560.14,455.482 6367.86,437 6176,437C5983.86,437 5792.14,455.529 5600,487L5600,486C5792.14,454.529 5983.86,436 6176,436C6367.86,436 6560.14,454.482 6752,485.861L6752,486.861Z"/> <path style="fill:rgb(56,56,56);" d="M6752,486.861C6560.14,455.482 6367.86,437 6176,437C5983.86,437 5792.14,455.529 5600,487L5600,486C5792.14,454.529 5983.86,436 6176,436C6367.86,436 6560.14,454.482 6752,485.861L6752,486.861Z"/> </g> <defs> <linearGradient id="a" x1="0" y1="0" x2="1" y2="0" gradientUnits="userSpaceOnUse"> <stop offset="0" style="stop-color:rgb(64,64,64);stop-opacity:1"/> <stop offset="1" style="stop-color:rgb(51,51,51);stop-opacity:1"/> </linearGradient> </defs> </svg>
  13. Page Plus enables exporting of files to PDF in various forms, including 'PDF Slideshow'. The current Beta of Publisher doesn't seem to have this facility. Is it coming, or is there another way to turn a Publisher file into a slideshow?
  14. Hi I'm unable to export this file to PDF: also trying a copy/paste of the whole content on a new file doesn't solve the problem (nor changing the destination of the PDF file) Error message is "An error occurred while exporting to:". Using Affininty ver 1.6.5.135 on W10 - this the only file with such a problem. Thanks in advance Regards Gottardo Cover BUG.afdesign
  15. Hi, I've googled this a quite a bit and seen a bunch of suggested tweaks that satisfied people, but I can't get anything to work, so sorry if this looks like a dupe. I'm trying to export vectors from Affinity Designer to SVG to use for a laser cutter. Every time I do, the SVG is resized. It doesn't matter what resolution or size document I use, or whether I specify an export resolution, or uncheck the "set viewBox" setting, or only export the objects and not the canvas, literally nothing produces an SVG file that preserves the actual size of what I've drawn. I've opened the SVGs in Inkscape, Lightburn, and AD itself, and they're always bigger. The first time I caught it, it had upscaled a 4" coaster to over a foot diameter. Resizing the image in another program isn't the biggest deal if all I'm doing is a 2-D design, but if I'm cutting pieces for a box with finger joints, resizing can throw things off big time. And going from AD to Inkscape to Lightburn just to get the SVG imported for the laser cutter is a bit of a pain, so I'm really hopeful there's a fix here. I've attached AD and SVG files of a simple square to demonstrate what I'm talking about. Specs: Affinity Designer 1.6.5, MacOS Mojave, recent MacBook Pro. Thanks! squaretest.afdesign squaretest.svg
  16. Hi, I have a very hard time understanding the slices and export. 1/ SLICES Should a slice not automatically be created from a layer.. ALWAYS ? Did I miss something? it seems to be it does at times and at other times it does not. 2/ LAYER DUPLICATE.. and SLICES When I duplicate a layer containing my design, rename it to something else than the original (say original is called Flyer.. and dupliate is renamed Web banner) it becomes a truly new layer thus shouldn't a new slice be automatically created at this juncture or am I totally off-base and shouldn't that slice inherit the name of the renamed layer also? 3/ UNITS If a file is set up as a print file, I think I can enter pixel unit in the Transform toolbox using px next to the number (though that box still shows mm).. and thus use pixel values for resizing layers that need to be in px for exports (my projects often include having to create both print and web elements). I'd swear at times entering pixel values in the Transform yields correct pixel exports and at times not at all.. Basically I'm trying to understand where I bug and where the software bugs.. as when different outcomes happen after a similar sequence of events.. I get totally confused not getting the expected result. PLEASE point me me to very clear Youtube or video tutorials (I need images to understand I do very badly with text tuts) .. H E L P At this point things I did farily easily if not very easily using Adobe products are still quite complex in affinity.. guess my brain is not yet matched to this way of thinking. I'm off Adobe but at times I miss it still.. I was hoping the switch would be slightly more intuitive. THX
  17. I have been trying and trying to get Slice Export to work for me on Affinity Designer iPad. I watched the tutorial video on how to do it. It just doesn't work for me. I tried exporting to iPad folder and also to various iCloud folders as well, nothing, it just doesn't export anything.
  18. So here I have a simplified example. I have a background and two layers. How do I: 1. automatically export each layer I want (in this case Layer1 and Layer2, but it might be a subset of all topmost layers) independent (with all non selected layers non-visible) with the background 2. do this all at once?

    PDF export takes forever

    Whenever I try to export something as a PDF it just kind of hangs up with the generating export animation. I’ve let it go for like a solid 10 minutes now. Any idea how I can make this work better? I’ve attached an image of my export settings while it’s generating. Any help is appreciated! Thank you.
  20. Hello, i'm having an issue exporting a PDF for a print job. I have different layers for the artwork, the guide and the notes. When i export the file it is just a flat PDF with a white background, as apposed to a PDF that opens with the layers. How do i export with the option to show hide layers in other software, or even with a blank background? At the moment the white artwork just gets flattened into a white background and i'm just exporting a blank image. Thanks.
  21. Hi I'm trying to export my 4k document (3840x2160) to a PDF and then convert it to Illustrator and After Effects. However when I export it the output is resized to 1080 for some reason. If I export it to PNG it exports fime to the proper dimensions. Can you please help me? I've tried using max res settings as well as not rasterizing anything. I can resize the vectors accordingly so it's ok, its just an extra step that I'd like to avoid. Best, Michael
  22. I would like to have the ability to re-name files on export, other than to type in a new filename with every single pic. Other software (On1, ACDSee, Lightroom, DxO) let you use a template to rename files and store that template as a preset in the export settings. E.g. attaach a date to the filename, or - in my case - just attacj _Aff to document what programme was used ( I use several). To type in that attachment during save with each and every file can become tedious.
  23. Hi there, I really like the way you can do continuous export in Affinity, just wondering though. How do I set the export path so I don't have to re-do it each time I load the file? Thanks, Pete
  24. I am using Designer to make assets for a board game, and the slice tool is really great for separating into the digital vs print needs. However, when I open them to print, it's made assumptions about the scaling. I'm exporting at 300dpi because that's the print size but most are scaling them to fit. If I manually export, I can set the scaling and paper size. Is there any way for me to change these settings upon batch export? If not, does anyone have any workflow suggestions to do this? I can't be the only one with this problem.
  25. As someone who transferred to Affinity Designer upon launch, ditching the traditional Adobe Products that most of the industry utilizes I am, for the most part, thrilled with incorporating Affinity Designer into my workflow. However, there are two features that I have been longing for. The first of which is the incorporation of editable text in an exported PSD. Some clients desperately want the PSD files of all of the work in the final form, and documents with tons of text present an issue as all text now exports as a pixel layer. I know it is a huge coding ordeal, but it would be such a huge asset to us all. Please, in your next update try to incorporate this feature for your dedicated designers using your design programs so that we are not forced to find ridiculous workarounds. Secondly, I would love to see an option for batch exporting of artboards to save them as the individual artboard name in a dedicated folder. So much of my time is spent opening a new document and placing the contents of each artboard individually on a new canvas and saving them for client work. A batch save option would be extremely helpful, especially if the same options are available there like the ones currently available in the export menu.
