  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?
