  1. When layernames in Affinity Designer start with a number, in the SVG export Affinity decided to add an underscore ('_') as prefix to all these ids of these svg elements. This is pretty unwanted behaviour, because we named these layers this way on purpose and want to have the same names in the export as we gave the layers. We don't want names and therefore the svg elements' ids to be changed under the hood. I can't find any good reason why Affinity should change these names; numbers in ID attributes of svg elements are perfectly fine and allowed. Even id's with only numbers in ids are allowed in html/svg. Because of this unwanted name change we have to rename hundred or so layers in some files by hand now and then filter out numbers from the changed layernames when using the svg at runtime by javascript again. That's not really convenient and not very efficient and in my opinion unnececary. I understand that sometimes renaming during svg export could be nececary when layernames would result in illegal ids, but this is not one of those cases. Please, would it be possible for Serif to remove this unwanted and unnececary renaming in the svg output?
  2. Hello Every one and first lets say: Affinity Designer is a great looking alternative to Adobe for working with GUI prototypes. My reason why I am writing this ticked is the issue that Affinity Designer is renaming the id entries from the original ones to some own unique ids, which I cannot use. The SVG file is a graphic which will be loaded in an application and get modified via JavaScript. For the correct functionality, each element (group) needs to have the right id name to its corresponding element in the graphic. I have noticed that Affinity Designer has replaced the groups ids into the ids from the text element inside the group (KDIFF3 snippet). Through the investigation, I recognized that the groups will be already removed in the application, as you can see on the objects list in attached screenshots - one from Affinity Designer, the other one from Adobe Illustrator. Is this a common issue with a known workaround? Do I have to change some settings? I haven't found anything relating to this. Best regards Denis
  3. Hi Affinity, how can I gift your App to an Apple ID. Cannot find the menu item in Apples App Store in the drop down menu in the right square of the price tag. Regards D.
  4. Hi, as part of my work, sometimes I have to open existing PDF documents (created in Adobe's kingdom by ID) and edit the text and/or add/change some images, export again as PDF and re-integrate in the multi-page document (a catalogue of sorts). For this I pull out the page from the document (I tried both dragging it out and opening the entire document in AD and selecting the target page, just to make sure), applying the changes and exporting (both with and without slices) the page as PDF for print. However the output file tends to be relatively huge (20X or more than original!) as compared to the page I dragged out of the original document (in the example 255 kb VS 7 mb). I tried to play around with export options and I managed to get it down to 3+ mb, but at this point the quality in unacceptable. Could you please shed some light on this? I'm attaching sample files. Thanks a lot and BTW, looking forward Affinity Publisher. I apologise in advance if my lack of knowledge on PDF lead to this. 04.pdf PRESENTAZIONE-ADRIANODESIGN-2015-03 (dragged).pdf
