Affinity Designer - Artboard Portal behaviour

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,


I've bought Affinity designer to set up Artboards for webdesign. Right now I am working on an administrator dashboard for a SAAS application. I have a few artboards. To name a few:


- Favicon artboard

- Logo artboard

- Background image artboard

- Dashboard homepage design artboard.


It would be nice if we could use artboards in other artboards, like a portal. 

Right now I am editting my logo in the logo artboard and then copy the logo over to the dashboard artboard.

It would be nice if I could put a reference to the logo artboard in the dashboard artboard, so that changes made to the logo artboard would instantly appear in the dashboard artboard.



Best regards.

Hello xtrasmal,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

The next Affinity Designer beta (1.5) will include Symbols which will lets you use several instances of an object in your project. Updating one will update all instances at once.

There's a few more options that makes this more powerful. MattP (one of the developers) post a sneak peak of the Symbols feature here. More details on his post here.
