  1. Hi guys, I created a logo with Affinity Designer and then decided to improve it by adding some outer shadow effects to the layers and groups that are part of the logo. I exported the logo as svg file but when I uploaded it to my site the shadows were not displayed and on top of that part of it got blurred. I opened the svg file with Affinity Designer to check whether it was a problem related to my browser or not but it happened the same. Then I checked that by deselecting the outer shadow effects the problem disappeared. Do you guys know anything about it? Probably I am doing something wrong. I am relatively new on graphic design. Find attached some files for more information. Many thanks in advanced! logo-design.afdesign
  2. I searched the forums extensively for this but couldn't find any information. I am sorry if I missed it. I would like to give classes to the shapes I create for export or IDs. Either one would work. For example, I have many objects within different groups called screen. Even though they are in different groups with different names, I notice when I export it consecutively names them so no two are the same. The first path with name will have ID id="screen", the second id="screen1", third id="screen2", id="screen3", and so forth. Basically, how can I customize this or make the IDs the same?
  3. Hi guys, I have been exporting as svg with Affinity without a problem until today. I installed some new fonts today, and after exporting the svg and viwing it into the Firefox/Chrome, the fonts look different from the ones I used, even though if I inspect the text it's actually the correct font. This problem is only in browsers, if I open the svg with Affinity the font displays correctly. Is this a browser problem, a font problem, or an Affinity problem? Thank you, Chris
  4. 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 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
  5. I want to import/place the following SVG file (hlines.svg). It looks correct in Illustrator. I can also open the file in Chrome and it looks correct. Here is how it looks when imported/placed in Designer: It is faint, but only the square in the upper left corner appears and it is missing the two horizontal black bars. How do I fix this? If I open the file it looks similar but I get a long list of layers. It seems that all of the boxes are being stacked on top of each other. I can select a layer and then move the SVG object to a different location. In this example, I moved each of the boxes from the upper left corner, where they were stacked on top of each other. I don't care if the objects are on separate layers or flattened on the same layer. I am not doing any editing except for scaling the entire image to 30 in x 30 in. I just need it to look like the image at the top, hLines.svg
  6. Hello! I have two very similar files with little figurine people in them. Neither one of them has a lot of complicated curves, they both have a few radial gradients, etc. Alice exports to a 4.5KB SVG file, but Bob exports to a 360KB SVG file, and I cannot figure out why. The Bob SVG file just has a zillion points in it, for no particular reason. If anybody can help me figure out why the Bob file is exporting to something so huge, it would be a great relief. Thanks so much! alice.afdesign bob.afdesign alice.svg bob.svg
  7. Hi, I'm newer in Affinity Designer. Adobe illustrator has line segment tool, when i use it, and then export to SVG file in which has <line> tag.But Affinity Designer don't. I use pen tool with line mode, and export to SVG, only <Path> tag. Can Affinity Designer export to SVG file with <line> tag?
  8. Here’s a very quick tutorial that requires no images and may help others who use Affinity Designer with ZBrush to import vector/ svg shapes for extrusion. To bring in an SVG file to ZBrush’s Text 3D & Vector Shapes Plugin successfully I.e with no stretching of proportions and other potential issues….. 1, Make sure your document's porportions within Affinity Designer is square 2, If you didn’t create your vector shape in a square document - copy it and past it in to a newly created square document. NB: How the pasted shape is aligned is of no importance to ZBrush, nor is it’s size within the square document. 3, Select your shape in the document > now export your SVG >File > Export , using the preset SVG (for export) , Area = Whole Document. 4, Import in to ZBrush> ZPlugin> Text 3D & Vector Shapes>New SVG et voila. All should be harmony and joy. (At the time of writing using Affinity Designer 1.6 & ZBrush 4R8)
  9. Hi everyone, I seem to have encountered a situation where an svg image that I've created in Affinity Designer is rendered differently, depending on whether I open it on a Mac (which is the platform I'm using Designer on) or a Windows PC. I'll attach two screenshots showing the difference. You'll note that the letter "S" in one screenshot (taken from the Windows PC) appears to have gone for a little wander. And this remained so, seemingly regardless of the Windows application I opened it in (I say "seemingly" because my tests weren't exhaustive, but I tried multiple browsers, at least). Perhaps it's worth mentioning, too, that I only purchased Affinity Designer yesterday (again, that being the Mac version), so it could be that I'm missing something, but if so, it's not plain to me where I might have gone wrong. And indeed, nothing would have alerted me to the discrepancy had I not been switching between Mac and PC. Anyhow, by all means let me know if I can provide more information. But at first blush, it does seem to be something of a bug. Denis PS: Also, if it helps, I was able to repeat the problem (ie, by exporting a fresh svg). And when I then tried exporting the image as a png file instead, the problem was resolved (ie, the "S" was aligned properly on my Windows PC).
  10. I produce many SVG graphics in R, mostly fairly simple scatter and line plots. I generate them using the ggplot2 package and save them in the SVG format with the ggsave function. The graphics display correctly in the Mac Finder's preview pane and in a web browser, but when opened in Designer, all line elements (plot axes, tick marks, bar and point borders, etc.) have their stroke set to 'None'. Text renders correctly but I have to select each line element in the Layers pane and set the stroke to the correct value. This of course is tedious and time consuming. Any ideas as to why this is happening?
  11. I just noticed that Designer can't export native SVG effects such as shades and instead rasterises them. This is a bit of a problem, as SVG icons in my experience are one of the best ways to keep icon sizes small and at the same time ensure scalability. SVGs that include raster images unnecessarily increase image size. I have been using other vector applications (but no Adobe solution) far less powerful than Designer. They can all properly handle SVG effects, so I was surprised to discover that Designer cannot. It seems to me that improving Designer's SVG export capabilities would be a desirable goal, especially for designers working on web related projects. Best regards, FF
  12. Hi! Firstly, I want to thank you for your products. You do amazing work guys and I really enjoy using them! I believe there are more important features to be implemented, but I couldn't find this one here, so let's list it: There is a "new" font format called OpenType-SVG that stores vector or bitmap informations to create colored fonts. Would be great to push the limit :) PS: Links explaining OpenType-SVG/Color Fonts:
  13. Hi, just came across this image and it looks OK in FireFox + IE but Designer + Photo places some objects outside of the image. Edit: OK this should have gone to the normal bug section, because it is not specific to the beta but you can move it if you like ^^ Radiation_warning_symbol2.svg
  14. It would be great if you could have more control over svgs when exporting. The big things that are missing for me are: 1: convert all fonts to outlines 2: control if layer names are used as ids or classes 3: styles inline or internal 4: link or embed images
  15. I am trying to export a simple icon as an SVG image. The image has a bit of a shadow around it. Affinity does manage to export it, but when I check the code, it generates a bitmap of the shadow instead of implementing it via SVG, which is what one would expect. I looked around to see weather there is some way to change this behavior, but I couldn't find any helpful information. Did I miss something? Help would be very much appreciated. -Franco
  16. Greetings! I found a beautiful set of playing cards in SVG format @ that I want to work with. However, when I try to bring it into either Designer or Photo, the results are, let's say, a bit less than desirable. Here is a screenshot of how it looks in Designer: As you can see, the layers are there, but the layout is completely unworkable. What am I doing wrong here? How can I bring them in so I can edit them? If we can bring them into Designer, is there an easy way to export them out as separate image files, one for each card?
  17. I am tryingto open an Illustrator File into Designer. it is this template file from a print shop. It seems fine in Illustrator. When I bring it into designer is not working out: As Ilustrator into Designer: As SVG 1.1 into Deigner: As Svg 1.0 I can’t figure it out>. Any one Smarter can help me>>>. I don’t what to do!!
  18. Vector files exported by AD are at least twice as big as the same file exported by Adobe Illustrator. I've just now exported a logo: 28.108 bytes with AD ("SVG for web"), 15.365 10.663 bytes with AI. (Updated: Smaller file had display errors) Small files sizes are IMHO still important when exporting graphics for the web... Can we expect improvements in this case?
  19. There are some black artefacts on SVG open agile.svg
  20. In this tutorial I will demonstrate the option Copy items as SVG in Affinity Designer 1.6.0. I use this function often to animate SVG with CSS keyframe animations and some JS in HTML. Just like this example which is a GIF (SVG is not allowed because of it's security issue). You can watch the original SVG file here. Keep on drawin' Norbert
  21. Hello, i'm wanted to ask if it is possible to add an option to add preserveAspectRatio="none" to the svg tag in an exported svg? I think it would be very easy to do for you, since you already have many options for svg export in the export. I wish it in Affinity Designer. This example topic shows it why i need it: I wish to scale svg without preserving the aspect ratio. Yes, i edited the files with hand and added the attribute there, but i will need it more often in future, so that an option would be perfect for me. Thanks and i will be waiting for a small reply :) Cheers, Torsten
  22. I just wanted to recap the current state of how Affinity Designer is performing in web design workflows. I'm using Affinity Designer since one year for all of my work and I love the application itself. But as of now there is no complete workflow to handout designs made in AD to developers in any way: 1. Neither Zeplin nor Avocode support AD and it doesn't seem that anthying will change here. 2. Affinity Designer supports PSD Export but has two major drawbacks: Border radius properties are not preserved and text layers are completely flattened which make them completely useless. 3. Affinity Designer doesn't support the new open file format of SketchApp to be able to export designs as Sketch files to then inspect them in Zeplin, Avocode, or any other Sketch Viewer. 4. Exporting to SVG or PDF is not an option either because important properties like border radius, line-height and others are missing. 5. Right now it doesn't seem that Affinity is adding an inspect persona or any viewer service or app. So I'd like to ask the Affinity Designer team: What are your goals to improve the workflow for webdesigners and developers? How are you planning to improve this workflow in the future or don't you plan to do anything in this regard? Do you have any suggestion how web designers can work with developers? I've added a poll so that users can vote which suggestion they like the most.
  23. Hi, I have a graphic that uses graphic-text (the icon A) with the Google Font "Lobster". I export the graphic as SVG and use it inside a web-page (see first two graphics at ) The problem is, that the lobster font isn't always displayed. The web-page itself loads the lobster font-family with: <link href="" rel="stylesheet"> But it seems this isn't carried over to an SVG element in a web-page. Further, it seems that the correct way to use a special font in an SVG element is: <defs> <style type="text/css">@import url('');</style> </defs> But how do I get this into the exported SVG of Affinity? I don't want to post-process the files.
  24. Hey guys, Does anyone know if Photoshop 2017 can open svg text as editable text? I really hate Photoshop, I really love Affinity, but I still need some way to provide psd files to some of my clients. So I noticed that if I export text as SVG from Affinity, I can keep it as text, and if I inspect it in any browser, I will get the exact info of the font ( font family, size, color, weight, style, line heights, everything). Can I import such a SVG containing text into Photoshop 2017 and see it as editable text in Photoshop? Did anyone try this? I would pay like an idiot for a Photoshop license monthly just for that, and that will make me hate Photoshop even more
  25. Friends Sometimes exporting a project to SVG results in errors in the resulting file, so when those files are reopened in AfDesign some text disappears or is transparent, or the like. Attached original file and error file.... Help Logo Toledo 2018 30.afdesign Logo Toledo 2018 30e.svg
