[ANSWERED]Preserve circles and other SVG shapes on import

Recommended Posts

EDIT: Sorry I forgot to check the answer to my question in the questions section. I'd have deleted this thread but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that. 


At the moment if I import a file with a bunch of svg shapes Affinity converts these to paths. It would be really handy to be able to preserve these as svg shapes.


For example if I have a bunch of map markers that look like this:

<circle cx="168.5" cy="581.2" id="Alghero marker" r="3" class="style0"/>
<g id="Algherolabel" transform="translate(0,0)" x="173.5" y="581.2">
<text id="Alghero name" x="173.5" y="581.2" class="style1">Alghero</text>

I can easily change the radius of the marker from 3 to 2 by using search and replace in a text editor (I can't see any way to do the same thing with multiple paths - but maybe that's my ignorance).


Webcode and Sketch do this (although in other respects I much prefer Affinity).
