A major bug when exporting the selection as PNG with transparent background in 2.1.0

Recommended Posts

I just found another major bug with all my affinity V2.1 programmes: when I try to export the selected vector shapes as PNG with transparent background, it is always exported with a white background (see picture below)


If exported as PDF or TIFF, the document can keep the background transparent.

I tried in the Affinity V1 and it can be exported as PNG with the transparent background. Is this a general bug with affinity V2.1?

The issue "PNG with Selection Only shows white background after toggling Embed ICC profiles" (REF: AFP-6164) has been fixed by the developers in internal build "".
This fix should soon be available as a customer beta and is planned for inclusion in the next customer release.
Customer beta builds are announced here and you can participate by following these instructions.
If you still experience this problem once you are using that build version (or later) please reply to this thread including @Serif Info Bot to notify us.
