Can not open specific SVG (It works in browsers)

Recommended Posts

I've got this svg file I saved from https://designs.ai/graphicmaker/illustration/243-public-transport-bicycle (I attached my saved file) that, when I try to open it in Affinity I'll get a "The file type not supported" error, even though it shows up fine when loaded in a browser. I've used the png option to export from said website instead but now having the svg option would really  help in a larger scale usage. Can someone look into this?

Hi m.vlad,

Thanks for the file. It is the height of the SVG being set to 'Auto' that is causing Designer issues - changing this to 100% will allow you to open the file.

I will get this passed on to development to see if any improvements can be made.

The colours are also wrong.

Adobe Photoshop CC 2020:

And then finally ... Affinity:

Interestingly Chrome and Firefox renders like this:

While Edge renders it like Photoshop, Inkscape etc.


I gave up using Designer for hobby use - a "professional" vector drawing program without actual vector features. Customers waiting for five years in vain is more than any company can ask for. Maybe if Affinity Designer 2.0 gets real and advanced vector features I can use it. Until then... I am a customer, a potential upgrader and an active observer with an opinion. Currently I am slowly finishing a project I started in Designer.

Further... give up and please hire an UX (usability designer), Serif. It is how professional software is made in this century.

That is also true. the browser render is the colour accurate one.
