Retina HD (@3x) support and Page Presets


Recommended Posts

Hi pi_mai,

 

I think @3x should work the same way than current retina (@2x) support in Affinity Designer.

 

For @1.5x and @0.3, I think they are never used in the same context than @2x or @3x. Indeed, they don't produce integer dimensions.

 

For instance, let's say you have a 15 x 13 image. You'll get:

@1x = 15 x 13 (integer dimensions)

@2x = 30 x 26 (integer dimensions)

@3x = 45 x 39 (integer dimensions)

@1.5x = 22.5 * 19.5 (float dimensions)

@0.3x = 4.5 * 3.9 (float dimensions)

 

Instead, it would be a nice feature to have a special feature for icon design, using the following standard dimensions:

  • 8x8
  • 16x16
  • 32x32
  • 64x64
  • 128x128
  • 256x256
  • 512x512
  • 1024x1024
  • 2048x2048

The ideal workflow in my opinion is something similar to how Sketch3 does it. You can basically define multiple export sizes (be it in percentage or pixels) per object/group. They mentioned this feature is in the works but would definitely be nice to know when to expect it.

This is actually the use case I would use slices for, so such a feature would be wonderful. I'm ultimately trying to export icons at multiple sizes (including 24x24). Right now, this involves exporting each slice at a very high resolution and then running it through another tool (like Photoshop), to resize and save at each of the resolutions I've specified. I'd LOVE to cut out the need for the extra tool. I think icon creation is one of the most common use cases for vector drawing tools, so a first class icon exporter would be a tremendous feature.
