I am loving this program and I am hoping it will solve the problem of subscription based programs. I am using the trial version and started opening Adobe Illustrator files and have noticed any art work I have outside the art board is missing.

Is there a way I can still get to all that? I work all over the file and not necessarily within the art board.

Hi crfehskens,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Affinity Designer / Photo can only access the PDF stream included in the AI file. The rest is proprietary. Since objects placed outside the artboard are not included in the PDF stream there's no way we can retrieve them when importing the file to Affinity.
