How to export content across multiple artboards?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm trying to design across multiple artboards and export with the persona tool. My goal is to design for Instagram carousels.  When I create 2 artboards side by side and export them, the content is not exporting and so I'm left with empty artboards.

If I put the content on each artboard, it exports, but I am trying to avoid this. My idea is to design across multiple artboards and simply export everything.

Here's an example for Illustrator. Is this possible with Affinity Designer?

Well AFAIK across in the sense of distributed overlapping won't work, because the overlapping content from one artboard to the other is cut off at Artboard bounderies overlay. An artboard behaves here as an document would behave, things that go beyond the document boundaries are cut off during export.

So you will have to duplicate (aka split/mirror cut objects and text) and distributed these over the artboards. Half of the heart and text on the one, the other half part on the other artboard etc.
