Pasting from AffDes to other software

Recommended Posts

I was uncertain whether this would rather be a feature request, but than: This is to my point of view such an elementary function long established on the mac, it just has to work: I am not able to copy pixel-content from Affinity Designer to another software, neither by selecting with the rectangular marque tool, nor by just selecting a pixel element from the layer palette. 

Neither any of Adobe’s CS5,5 programmes, nor Text Edit, Preview, etc accept the pasteboard’s content. Finder is just showing “Content unknown” when displaying pasteboard. 

Does it really not work (yet) or do I have to use another tool or menu command to transfer to other software?

I pretty much have to keep all my content within A.D., for various reasons. I can't export PDFs as vectors, I'm having issues pasting out, as you are. Can't paste stuff in as vectors from other apps, etc. Right now I'm doing a project, my first one with A.D., that is completely done within the app, so I don't have to worry about importing/exporting anything. Now, if I run into problems with that, I'll have to wait for the next beta which should address many import/export/paste issues.


Right now, it seems to be a closed environment. Hope that changes soon.
