Hi there,

 

there is something strange with "export to PSD", if I export a shape directly drawing in Designer, the shape remains vector shapes in PS, but if I work with a SVG in Designer and export it to PSD, the shape becomes a bitmap in PS. Why? What is wrong?

 

Thank you

Can you upload example documents so that I can see what you are doing.  Thanks.

ok - I've discovered the issue.

 

Your layer has a gaussian blur effect on it, which is disabled, but PSD cannot export it and so the layer gets rasterised.  I'll add a fix for this - if the gaussian blur is disabled, then it'll just ignore it.

 

The fix for this will be in a future Beta.

You must have applied the effect, then disabled it.  The data is there, and maintained when you save.  Unfortunately, PSD export tries to maintain all your data (even hidden elements), so it was trying to export this.

 

PSD doesn't have a gaussian blur effect, so we always rasterise this effect.  There was an error in the PSD exporter which didn't check whether the effect was actually enabled before rasterising the layer.

Strange, camera come from Sketch export and I cannot find this information in the source file. I open the SVG file in AD it is not a copy/paste from Sketch

You must have edited the gaussian blur effect settings on the layer at some point.  The data is only created when you edit for the first time.

 

For now, try deleting the layer from your document and reimport it from the SVG.  Hopefully that will sort it out.

 

Either way - the PSD exporter will be fixed in the future.

Hum... Sorry but there is something else, I make a new try with a SVG file download on flatiron website, I just open SVG file - Save to PSD and again PSD file is not a shape. There is something wrong when you open a SVG file in your app.
