Creating an SVG logo in AD to insert into an area with dimensions.


Recommended Posts

AFAIK there is no used term refrenced to Artboards called "mounting area", you better use the terms the online help uses and names, in order to not confuse people here. Since the later may lead to possible misunderstandings! - See:

Insert the artboard, click on the button "mounting area" and select "document" and the artboard will take up the entire document.

It seems from your screenshot that you are talking about the AD Artboard Tool, right?

If there are objects in the document, select them, click on the "mounting area" button again, but select "selection" and the mounting area will be created, which can then be exported separately.

By "mounting area" are you talking about creating a new artboard or something else? Either way, I am not sure how this relates to importing a document, since the Artboard Tool is not used for that.

Just using the tooltip names would be enough.

I guess to answer the OP's question it does not really matter what tool or workflow is used.

The fact is that 1 Affinity document has 1 resolution (DPI) which may get changed any time AND every single raster image or container file type resource placed or pasted inside this document can have its own resolution which also may get changed but then influences its layout size within its parent Affinity document.

Yes, the question is, when exporting, we can choose the settings if "document" or "selection" is exported. You can also select DPI when creating a document. But I didn't find this anywhere when creating/exporting the "artboard".

The Designer document has a DPI setting of x DPI. All of the artboards have the same DPI.

Place a JPEG/TIFF/PNG and you have all the pixels there regardless of the original file's DPI. The picture may be larger or the same size or smaller in inches or cm but all the pixels are there.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Strange, to me it feels you ask the same question multiple times – but also seemed to understand each time it was answered … to ask the question again with different words.

Now the orange part makes me wonder:
• If you are aware about the DPI of an Affinity document – what makes you expect to set the DPI of an artboard separately?
• If each artboard could have DPI of its own – what would then the document's DPI mean and affect at all?
• For what use do you want a layout document with varying resolution on every of its single artboards or pages – while the layout objects are able already to have various DPI.

Your first two screenshots show options for the Artboard Tool. Again, this has nothing to do with exporting all or part of a document or creating a new document. That tool just creates artboards of various sizes, like the same size as the already-created document or a selection of some or all of its parts.

The Export settings control what area of the document gets exported. The options for the area depend on several things, like if there is one or more artboards or if anything is selected. For example, with two artboards you might see something like this:

Refer to the chart in the help topic to see which export formats support what DPI in the export formats that support setting DPI independently of the document DPI (which is set during creation of new documents or changed at any later time via the Dimensions tab in the AD File > Document setup menu item.

Nothing strange, because I'm a beginner, so I apologize in advance for my stupidity, for stupid questions, I just want to understand and figure it out. Please don't be angry with me.
