I just started using Affinity Designer and I found one thing that significantly reduces my productivity (comparing to Inkscape). It is related to export of the vector image into multiple resolutions.


On Android it is very common that one vector image is exported into multiple resolutions. Eg. launcher icon is exported into


<project home>res/drawable-mdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 48x48px

<project home>res/drawable-hdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 72x72px

<project home>res/drawable-xhdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 96x96px



Using Inkscape I made script exporting single drawing into multiple files. Is something similar possible with Designer?

Hi, cool program. One thing - as a pro I have to deliver often print res & screen res - basically I make the raw-process and the treatments in TIF and then export jpg's in print res and 2 screen res (1920px and 333px). Is there a way to batch output he deliver files?

Thank you

OK, looking forward. Both Sketch and Inkscape currently surpass Designer in this area.

full ack here.

I even have a webserver where I made a PHP script which essentially throws a given SVG file (which is already on the server so no user manipulation possible) right into inkscape, allowing me to insta-export anything I like in any size just by calling the proper URL.
