Hi, Please excuse what may seem like very basic questions but I am extremely unexperienced with graphic design. I've used GIMP for a few months and found it clunky and time consuming, so I recently purchased Affinity Photo and I am contemplating purchasing Affinity Designer depending on the answer to my question. I've watched several of the tutorials and have searched the help section and forums but have not found an answer to several of my questions. I own a Cricut cutting machine and I make t-shirts using heat transfer vinyl. I have figured out how to make pngs in affinity and import them into cricut design space. This is pretty easy. However, what I would like to know is if I can create svgs in affinity to import into Cricut design space? I can currently purchase svg files online and when I import them into Cricut design space, I only have to do 1 import and each layer/element that is in a different color is imported in one file. This makes it quick and efficient and then I can edit each layer/element independently in design space. Is there a way for me to make files like this with affinity photo and/or affinity design? Since I use vinyl, I need each color in design space as a separate layer. I have attached a screenshot as an example. I have created this simple text/shape graphic in photo. My designs are super simple, mostly text and shapes. I want to import it as an svg into Cricut design space so that when I open in Cricut design space, the arrow and text are different layers so that I can cut out the text in black and then the arrow in red vinyl. I know how to save each layer as a png, but then I have to import each layer separately. This isn't a big deal for something relatively simple, but if I'm using more than 2 or 3 colors, it gets tedious. Is there a way to do this? I have very basic knowledge and don't know much of the terminology, though I'm spending about an hour each day online learning. But I need a very basic explanation. Thanks, Lynnsey
