  1. Hi, I was looking at the thread about the requested features for next versions. In the output formats I saw that the WMF/EMF format is missing. This is crucial in my workflow as most of my graphics are for MS Powerpoint and some other apps that use this format. In the meantime I have to go back and keep working with Inkscape to be able to export to this format, which breaks my workflow and adds a lot of extra work. Please, consider this format in the export options. Even if Powerpoint is a MS product consider that is widely use in Mac system. Thanks.
  2. I have a large collection of Serif wmf files. I find them useful because I can start with a ready-made file and adapt it for my purposes. Until now I've been using the Microsoft Office 2010 facility for viewing a folder's worth of wmf files and selecting the one I want. I've had to upgrade Office and they don't seem to support this any more. How do I preview wmf files before choosing which one to open in Affinity Designer?
  3. Hi there! Recently a colleague of mine sent me a Word file (Word 2016 on Windows), including a chart based on an internal data sheet. Although Word has no option to export an embedded chart as a graphic there is a trick to get the job done: select the chart, copy it and paste it into an empty slide in Powerpoint. Then export this slide as an WMF file (SVG is not offered in this case by PP). Unfortunately the exported WMF file can't be edited by Affinity Designer ( properly: It is not possible to select more than one layer at a time in order to create groups - at least not in the layers list. Even clicking on several items on the artboard while holding the ctrl-key does not work. The only way to select several items together is by drawing a selection frame around the desired items. One of the files causing problems with me is attached. Any ideas, why editing this file is such a pain? Or is it by design? Thanks, Volker Präsentation1.wmf
