  1. I've recently created several vector only designs in Affinity Designer. When I go to export them as SVG instead of being vector svg files they are svgs that contain raster pngs embedded in them and hence don't scale properly. This is not what I want. 😢 Is there any way to tell affinity designer to export the vector design as only a vector svg not png embedded in svg? Are there features of the software that force the design to export embedded pngs, and if so is there a refence to which ones so they can be avoided and alternate methods employed? I've noticed specifically that outer shadow fx seems to trigger this, i'd really like to know which other features trigger this behavior so that i can make svg vector safe resizable designs. Anyone know a reference to this aspect of Affinity Designer? Many Thanks. ❤️
  2. Hi I've an A5 document I need to reduced to under 1MB, and I'm really struggling. I don't think I'm saving the history, I'm exporting 72 dpi, I've saved the colour in CMYK, I don't think I've any 'white boxes'. This is one of 2 documents, almost identical (2 job packs), same images, number of pages etc. The other was fine, well under 1mb. I can't find a way of reducing this one. I've gone into Adbobe and reduced the file size of the pdf, I've exported small size pdf, I've gone online and reduced the pdf smaller. So you can barely make out the pictures - but it is still too big. What am I missing? local_groupsandnetworks_72dpi_smaller_6.afpub
  3. Hi, I'm using Affinity Photo and Designer for exporting JPG. My Problem is the File Size is too big, even with compression of 0%. Example: 80% compression = 80,3 KB 0% compression = 66,2 KB Why remains the File Size so big? Could it be a bug? (The problem is with Mac and Windows. I have tested it.) See attached my examples. bg-header.psd
  4. Hi, I'm using 1.8.3. When I export my slices and select PNG, no matter if in Document Setup I unchecked the transparent background, I still get Transparent backgrounds both in the Sections preview panel, both as a result. I want my slices to have a white background.
  5. First: Affinit Designer is really great - thanks to the Affinity team! (Former-time Corel user, then Inkscape, now switched to Affinity due to CMYK and better color management) My request: I often use Save-As to generate numbered versions of files (as backups, and so that when I discuss them with a client, we can refer to which version we are talking about). In the Save As dialog, it appears that AD defaults to the folder where I last saved anything. This is very tricky when working on files that lie in different folders. To me, the current behaviour is somehow unexpected, and I often accidentially store files in the wrong project's folder. The same happens when exporting, to PDF for instance. I can imagine that people might want to always export all PDFs to a certain folder no matter where the curent file is, so maybe we should also consider this use-case. My suggestion is: 1.) Save As: Default to the folder where the current file lies. 2.) Export (pdf etc, but also for palettes): Default to the folder where I last exported the respective file type when the current document was open. (Maybe its not a good idea to store file paths in documents (like the export paths necessary for 2.). For me, it would be ok if this only works for the last, say, 30 files I worked on, so it could be stored somewhere in the application options storage, not in the document files.) Would this cover all use-cases? Best, Philipp
  6. Is it possible to export affinity designer to PSD file with editable text? If yes, how?
  7. I would like to export a PDF where I can adjust the viewing preferences to double page viewing with cover page. Am I missing something but this doesn't not seem to be possible like it is in InDesign etc? Really pity as the only way to do this is by being forced - yet again - to buy an adobe product Acrobat Pro. Or is there a way around this issue? Needs to be single page export but viewing 'magazine style', with page turning animation would be even more amazing. Maybe someone knows a free/cheap app that could do this to the plain PDF exported out of Publisher? All help appreciated!
  8. Hey everyone. I need to know if there is a way to establish a page order when we export multiple artboards to a PDF. Currently, even though I set up my artboards in order, once they were exported, they actually came out in the reverse. So instead of 1 to 14, it came out 14 to 1 in page order. How can I reverse this? Is there some way to also set the order on export and is there a certain way we must lay out our multiple documents in order to get the pages right all the time? Thanks.
  9. Hi all. I'm performing a very common task: exporting a bunch of PNGs to use as button icons in iOS. I have four versions of the button for the various states it can be in, and an export slice for each. The slices are named appropriately: enabled, enabled_on, disabled, disabled_on. I use this file as a template. When I export, I want all the filenames to start with the name of the button. In the output-filename dialog, you can create a user variable; one would think this is exactly the type of situation you'd want one for. But the user variable doesn't show up anywhere else: Is this a known bug? This is Designer 1.8.4 under Mac OS 10.15.6.
  10. Hello. I'm attempting to upload art made in Affinity Designer to Teespring. I export as a PNG, Resample: Bilinear and don't resize the image larger when creating my listing. After creating the listing, the preview looks pixelated. Other shops don't have this pixelation problem on their product pages. I'm concerned about the quality of the shirt. Their design tips say to turn off anti-aliasing in Illustrator. Can I achieve a similar result in Designer to prevent pixilation of a printed product? I see an export option for nearest neighbor but I don't fully understand this or if it will allow my design to be printed with high quality. The artwork are vectors and they are only pixelated when uploaded to the shop. What would you suggest?
  11. While making textures intended for a game engine I discovered a weird issue: when I export TGA files for some reason their bottom right corner pixel gets inverted. If I export the same image to PNG or JPG there are no issues at all. I'm attaching original .afphoto file as well as TGA and an upscaled PNG file converted from TGA for better view. To reproduce this bug simply create a project and export it as TGA. You should notice exactly one pixel being inverted in the bottom right corner. I'm using Affinity Photo 1.8.5.703 T_ConcreteWall06.afphoto T_ConcreteWall06.tga
  12. Hi, I've just downloaded the Affinity Designer trial, and am quite impressed. However, I am a design student and my school computers have adobe programs. As far as I can tell, I can't find any way of exporting Designer files as Ai files? I can see the option to export as psd, and I've tried to open Ai files using Designer with no problems - but I wanted to check whether there was a way of exporting to Ai that I had missed. Thanks
  13. I should know the answer to this but I have been puzzling over it until I'm bug-eyed. I have a photo to which I have applied an unsharp mask which has worked well. I have also applied a couple of other adjustments, e.g. HSL adjustment, white balance adjustment etc. It is currently an afphoto file and I want to export it as a jpg or a tiff file. When I do this I lose the unsharp mask. I have tried flattening, rasterizing but to no avail. Am I totally wasting my time or is there a way around this?
  14. Exporting to pdf the attached document results on incorrect render of the gaussian blur effect. Tested with all default export settings. (Error disappear if render all is activated) If I recall was this a former error already solved? a regression? Or a new one? I've included my pdf result. Sin título.pdf error-export-pdf.afpub
  15. I am a newbie for affinity photo. I am trying out how to make a photo or an image background transparent. I have tried the above method and I still get the white background as saved file. Can someone show me a YouTube link if there is any? (I have found one link and I also tried what it says but still I get a white background instead).
  16. Thanks! I have no idea what was changed, but the SVG's into PowerPoint crashed when you ungrouped/converted them. Now, it's working perfectly. This is really helpful team, I know we all cringe at PowerPoint but clients use it a lot and this little fix makes my work so much better (so much that I wanted to thank the Affinity team for fixing what ever MS was not getting right). I mean, PowerPoint has no meaningful drawing ability, so a custom shape in Designer can really make a huge difference in quality.
  17. Hi guys, I'm at a loss. To confirm I run Spyder to colour manage my display and I have read the display calibration spotlight before writing this. However, when I export images from Affinity the colours come out wrong. See the attachement. I have included my export settings.
  18. 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
  19. Hi Affinity Community, after trying several different methods to reach my goal, I sadly have to resort to bother you guys. What I want to do I want to create a cheatsheet for a game I'm playing and for that I want to extract different symbols used in the game from screenshots (particularly the one attached). While the symbols are white in color, the background has different shades of blue, making the masking more difficult (for me). What I tried Created new Affinity Designer File. Designer Persona Created new artboard for the screenshot itself and for every symbol I want to extract. (see attachment) Used the "Placing content" tool to insert the Screenshot into the designated artboard (and matched their sizes). Rasterized the Layer. Pixel Persona Added a "Brightness/Contrast adjustment" (with contrast set to 100%) to the screenshot in the hope to easier select the wanted pixels. Added a "Mask Layer" to the screenshot. Used "Select -> Select Sampled Color" (model: "intensity") and picked the blue/black surroundings. With the selection I clicked the masking layer and pressed "del" to hide everything but the symbols and lettering. (or rather paint the mask black by doing so) Designer Persona Used the "Placing content" tool again on each artboard for the symbols and choose the file itself and from that the artboard with the screenshot. (Sadly I only get the tool to embed the file itself, but don't get it to just link to itself. This results in it not updating automatically. Is there a way to do that? I found a support page for Affinity Publisher, but I'm not really familiar with that part of the program suit...) I then positioned the embedded artboards so that only the desired symbol is seen in each smaller artboard. Export Persona Each artboard is a slice and is exported as PNG for further use in Visio or again Affinity Designer. After importing my exports into Visio I realised the background is not completely transparent. (see attachment) In short Is there a way in Affinity Designer (or Publisher) to link to a file of itself to make use of automatically updating several artboards? (This only works in Publisher?) How do I make sure, that selected pixels are completely set to transparent and don't have some color left? Would you recommend another workflow to approach the problem? Thank You! This is my first post in the forum and I'm quite new to the Affinity Suit, thank you for taking your time answering. 🙂 (Hopefully I didn't ask questions that are actually quite easy to solve, if I had googled the right terms...)

  20. Is there a way to export native designer files from the ipad designer app without using icloud? When I go to export a design, why is there no option to export it as a native file? why does it have to be converted to some other format?
  21. Hi there, is there any plan to introduce more options for compressing PNG image exports? I've noticed I can add my transparent PNGs created in Affinity to an online image compressor like Optimizilla and it will compress the image considerably, whilst retaining the quality and the alpha transparency. It uses something called "Indexed RGB" colours to do this, reducing file sizes by between 40% and 60% for most PNGs with alpha transparency. In Affinity, there is just the option of 16 Bit or 8 Bit (dithered). When exporting logos for the web, this helps improve Pagespeed Insights scores, in addition to reducing load times.
  22. HI, I have artwork in my print project. The client also wants it as an image in the same size but 150ppi. After exporting to tiff, I have a 300ppi image (because the project was for printing) and I have to reshape it! Maybe add a checkbox for the resolution of the exported image, please.
  23. This is a minimal reproduction of an issue I'm seeing in another document. I'm using Google's Roboto Slab font in its Black weight. When I save as PDF via the Print dialog, the Black weight is preserved, but when I export PDF (with font and subset font embedding enabled), it reverts to Regular weight.

  24. I was wondering if there's a way to do an SVG export but exclude any images from the export. I basically want an SVG that I can work with which has all of the outline information separately, and save the graphics portion of the drawing as a separate bitmap. I thought that selecting the "Nothing" option for the Rasterize menu option under the export menu might work, but it did not. I did some additional debug, and I found that by changing the zoom level of the bitmap patterns that I'm using, I can make the tool either include the image in the SVG export or exclude the image when the "Nothing" option is selected in the Rasterize menu option. Sounds like a bug?? Yet some additional debug data. If I select all items to export, I can then go into the export menu and select for the Area "Selection with background". If I then subsequently pick '"Selection without background", then the tool will not export the images. Can someone explain if my interpretation of how the "Nothing" option for Rasterize is correct? If so, it sounds like it's not working correctly for SVG export.
  25. Hi everyone, I'm just confused about exporting my file. I want to export my file as an SVG for others to edit but why when an SVG file is opened it becomes uneditable because it is an image. Whereas before it was in the form of a curve, can anyone help me?
