  1. Hi All, At my company we are trying to use Affinity Designer and Photo for the creation of advertising materials. The magazine printing company is having problems with the PDFs we generate with each of these programs. They require the PDFs contain no ICC profile information. We have tried without success to create PDFs without ICC profiles using the following versions of the software: Affinity Designer 1.6.4.104 - for Windows Affinity Photo 1.6.7 - for Mac The only solution we have found so far is to load the PDFs with Adobe Illustrator and recreate them, deleting the ICC profile info in the process. This was in fact only found via trial and error because we do not know of an easy way to check which ICC profile info is stored in the file. It would be great if… 1) The export worked as intended and didn’t include the ICC profile when saving 2) If we had a way to determine if the ICC profile was included (maybe there is and we just don't know) What can we do to help you solve this problem? Please let us know which files you need (the Affinity file, PDF, etc). Thank you for your help, John
  2. Hi Affinity Team Would it be possible to add functionality to export all the layers from a document to separate files? (especially in Affinity Photo) We often get multilayer .psd's from our clients containing a bunch of supers and splashes that we need to animate on TVC's, and we always need to export each layer out as a separate image file. In PS there is a "script" called "Export layers to files" but it is quite limited regarding file formats and saving options. So I request the addition of a "Export layers to separate files" check box in the export dialog for all formats. And regarding the naming of the outputted files then it could be just as simple as "documentName_layerName.ext". Good work so far, I'm really looking forward for the official release of Affinity Photo Cheers /johs
  3. Hi there, I'm using Designer, and need to export 40 artboards, that have complex groups, as a flattened PDF. What is the best way to do this? Thanks! Anj Edit: found out that there is an option for it in Export

    Export Bug

    In the designer, the artwork looks fine, but when I export it, it is broken. Even if I group and rasterize the entire image it does not export the way it looks like in the designer. How can I fix this? Notice the hat and how it is missing the think black line at the top of it and also on the side as it does not sit flush on the head. And compare that to the screenshot of the designer itself. I flattened it in the designer and it looks how I expected it to export, but it doesn't. Any ideas?

  5. I have already searched in the forum, but have not found what I was looking for. My Question: Is it possible to set the following PDF properties during an export? Document Author Document title If so, how? In the following picture you see the desired result. My Title and A. Author should be filled by affinity designer. Thanks in advance! best regards
  6. Hi, I downloaded the AD form the Mac App Store yesterday and started working. Everything I export is coming out blurry. I have the document setup at 300dpi and when I export it, it just comes out pixelated. Even just text that looks perfect in AD is pixelated at the edges when I export. I am exporting as png or jpg for web. I have done it just as an export as well as a slice and nothing is coming out clear. Pretty frustrating. Is there something that I am doing wrong or is this just a glitch? Any help would be appreciated. I have attached a screen shot of the text in AD and then the exported PNG so you can see what I am talking about. Thanks Brody
  7. Would it be possible to allow some of my export slices to ignore certain layers, but others to include them? I'm often working on multi-layered images for use in games, and every time I export i have to turn off specific layers beforehand. I appreciate the current option to set layers to not be exported, but I'd prefer some more power to limit certain layers to certain slices, so I can export the foreground, middle and foreground objects cleanly.
  8. I'm evaluating Affinity Photo in a work flow that uses DxO PhotoLab to apply lens as well as basic colour & exposure corrections. When I export from DxO into Affinity, photos look significantly different. Is there something I'm overlooking? Can someone please suggest how I can carry forward all of the work done in DxO before I begin more detailed work in Affinity Photo? Thanks.
  9. How do you export Portrait Jpegs where you want one side to be a set size (for example 1080 pixels). I've used Lightroom and this is straightforward as it ignores the "Long" side, but when I tried it in Affinity Photo I got a squashed image. I would welcome any assistance
  10. I have an Affinity Photo document with many dozens of layers. I frequently need to export one of the layers individually to a PNG (hiding all of the other layers/content in the document). I've found this very difficult to do, as I can't currently find shortcuts to either: a) hide all layers except the selected one or b) directly export a single selected layer Also, I need layer effects of the parent group(s) to still be applied. Which means doing something like copying the layer and then choosing New from Clipboard and then exporting won't work well for my purposes. Perhaps I'm overlooking something obvious? Can anyone offer suggestions on the easiest way to do this?

    Bleeds

    Hello, I'm having recently some trouble with bleeds. I'm a newbie to graphic stuff, I've created a poster and now i need to print it and cut off the edges, so there are no white borders around it. In the document setup, I've set the bleeds to be 3mm on each side. When exporting, I've added all the crop marks and all the stuff, but when I export it to the final pdf file, the bleed marks are 3mm away from the poster, not in it actually (please see attachements, and the bleed is much bigger just to notice the difference). I want Affinity Designer to put the bleed marks in the actual poster, so there will be part of the image cut off. Unfortunately, I can't set bleed with minus at the beginning. Could anyone please help me? Thank you. A lot. Mike ostrava4.pdf
  12. I’m trying to export raw images from Lightroom mobile into affinity. When you use the share button it works but I can’t tell if the file stays raw as the affinity metadata doesn’t list file type. In Snapseed it converts it to jpeg.
  13. When drawing elements to be cut on a laser cutter, setting up a document in mm is very helpful. Unfortunately, the common interchange file format for this kind of device is SVG. While the file format supports measurements in defined units, Designer converts to pixels during the export, which means that after import, the dimensions have to be recalculated. Therefore, it would be great to have the option to preserve the units from the document during export, such that a 50x150mm rectangle is exported just as such.
  14. I am trying to export SVG files from Affinity Designer and bring them into a range of programs for generating tabs / notches and then outputting for laser cutting. In Adobe Illustrator it is very simple - you set the document units to mm, design something with specific dimensions, and export your SVG. What comes out will be interpreted by other software, and by the laser cutter at the exact dimensions. With Affinity Designer, I've spent hours troubleshooting and digging through the forums and no matter what I do dimensions seem to vary depending on the DPI and all sorts of other options, and even slices of objects with the same height will export at different dimensions. It makes it practically impossible to predict what size your object will be. (as an aside, I thought DPI was completely irrelevant to vector - why is it even an option in a vector format?!) So is reliable scale something Affinity Designer just can't do? How are people delivering documents for print if they don't know how the printer will interpret the dimensions of their final files? I dumped Creative Cloud, bought the Affinity hoping to replace AI and now am faced with going back to Creative Cloud and getting stung with higher fees as a result of leaving. For my line of work this seems like really simple stuff...
  15. Hello there, So I'm a website designer, and I would like to design in Affinity Designer more. I found a problem though that is preventing me from doing that full-time...When I export my files to PSD (for handing over to developers) and open them in Photoshop, the text layers appear as image/raster layers and aren't editable. Please help. This is a very important issue for me to resolve. I cannot proceed with using Affinity Designer if our dev team can't edit the texts. Other than this, I am really loving this software. Please help. Thanks, Eli
  16. Hi all, Just starting to experiment with Designer having been a happy APH user for some time. Does anyone have any idea why exporting this to PDF: Gives me this: I've attached the .afdesign file (including history) and the .pdf, which was exported using the default Print settings at 300dpi. Cheers, h_d splat.afdesign splat.pdf
  17. In the Export Persona, when exporting an image for the web and you want the size as small as possible, you want to see a preview of what you will be exporting. So you can change the quality of a jpeg and see instantly what the result will be. The same when you change the number of colors in the palette of gifs and pngs. Also show the sizes in bytes of the slices you are exporting. The size is shown in the simple Export, but not in the more advanced Export Persona. Fireworks does this very well, it even has multiple previews with different export settings.
  18. Is there a way to export from Affinity Designer always in the same folder as the source AFD file? Cause I can't find it and working on UI design makes it a headache cause I always have to switch folders on export. I know it's a feature request already for Affinity Photo but I'm not sure if this will be added to AD as well. Any thoughts?
  19. As shown in the picture. Every time I try to export a picture in SVG or PNG ( Haven´t noticed it in another format but its there) I have this border around my slice about 1-2 pixels wide. All the way around the slice. And it is causing problems when preparing SVGs for Websites, PNGs for Instagram posts or anything in that matter. Is there a way I can remove this empty border around it? I am trying to export this image in SVG for my website. Thank you for your help. If you need any more data let me know.
  20. Quite everything is in the title, but to be more contextual, I'm working with 32bits linear .exr (3D renders). To have a proper non destructive workflow I use OCIO layers to convert from linear space to color profil spaces, then I use creative LUT (or do manual adjustments). Exemple: OCIO layer to convert from scene linear to Slog, then a creative Log LUT to have my look, and export to final 8bits format. The problem is at the end of the process, when exporting an image there is an ICC profile apply on top of my stack, so it add an aditionnal transfer curve wich altered my work. I don't talk about how to view my work how it's exported, I know that, but I want my work not to be altered with additionnal transform. I know a cheap way of doing what I want but it's not satisfying. So, is there a way of disabling ICC profile during the export? Or is it planned to add the option in a future release?
  21. When I close the app and open it back up, nothing is shown in the recents drop-down menu and the export persona's continuous export is not saved. Luckily, my designs are still saved.
  22. I am experiencing an issue with AD 1.6.1. I have used a DAUB vector brush to create a sketchy effect on a fill on this logo. I am having problems where the stroke caps and joins are distorting when enlarged over a certain size (est 75mm in width) and rasterised, either directly in the document or when exporting in any format. I understand that these brush sets contain raster elements, therefore must be rasterised on export, but why this is skewing the joins and caps i cannot explain. Weirdly, i have also noticed that the caps and joins change in appearance when i zoom in on the paths, not even resize, just zoom in, they look completely different. Is this a bug with the brush? Am i doing something wrong with my Nodes? Please help!
  23. this is something I am sure has been brought up about a year or so ago. but could not find it on here. SO this link here is how you can use inkscape to design levels in video games, parsing the SVG data in whatever you are using that can be used for collision, shapes & other such things I really think this would be a fantastic feature for designer, photo, or whatever affinity product that can have SVG output. please look at the link & see how it works & uses the data to build levels. its super awesome & would be even more awesome to have http://www.fierysquirrel.com/post.php?id=705 all the best
  24. Exif data is totally cut of by Export Persona It is only properly exported/adapted from RAW by File/Export function. Generally: The Exif handling should be implemented much better. In comparison to Lr/Photoshop it is de facto inexistent. Of course there is the "All" view. But in there, I mess up with the countless xml tags, which are quite inconvenient to use - if you don't know the correct meaning by heart - what I do not and I have no intention to learn them. Guys, I want to use the program and not mess around with xml tags I have no clue of Appreciate any help, reply, whatever... Cheers mates, Roland PS: I was not sure, shall I post this under bugs or enhancement requests. Somehow it is like Schrödinger's cat: both
  25. Continuing from this post, I think it would be really cool to have a tab added to the export persona that would allow us to attach exportable attributes to layers, so that when we export an svg, all of our attributes for that layer are preserved. This would solve so many of the problems I've had whilst using designer. It would allow us to: Invoke svg filters defined externally Save class names on elements Add interactivity and styles Better yet, it would be cool to also use empty layers to add some svg markup to the final exported document, so we can define our own symbols, filters and the like. This would solve the issue I keep having (and no doubt others have had) while trying to use affinity designed svgs in production. If somebody asks me to change a colour, its always the same workflow: change color -> export -> make text edits -> repeat...
