Designer svg export does not store the correct size

Recommended Posts


I am getting extremely frustrated with Affinity Designer and Silhouette Studio, as the designs I export as svg from Designer don't have the correct size when importing them in Silhouette Studio (they import tiny).
When doing the same workflow from Adobe Illustrator it works perfectly fine, and the designs after importing them into Silhouette are sized EXACTLY the same as in Illustrator.

I stumbled upon this several month ago and thought this might be a bug in Designer, but now several updates later it's still the same lousy behaviour.

Any tips or info if there is worked on?

For the silhouette the document size must be 72dpi and on export>extra uncheck "show viewport". Works for me this way.
