Being new to Affinity, I am aware that there are challenges in exporting SVGs from AD. I have tried through the forum and googling to solve my issue, however have not been able to do so. I am wanting to create a simple file with two layers, one being a square and the other being a text layer. This is for exporting to Beam Studio, the Beambox laser engraver app. The rectangle is the cut layer, and the text is the engrave layer.

When I create the file and select Export/SVG for Export, the file will not upload into Beam Studio. I have tried uploading to imag-R and get an error. I believe from my investigations there could be bitmap components in the file I create, however am not sure how this has occurred. As I said I am new to AD so am not sure if I am doing something incorrectly that is corrupting the file. 

Is there a specific process I should be following to ensure the files can be exported as a pure SVG, or can be converted to SVG via image-R?


Appreciate any help!
