Designer 1.5 slices export transparency

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I don't get it. With new update it seems that I can't export icons to png with transparent background using a slice through export mode. And there is no setting for that. In previous version I was able to do that without any complains and settings, now I just can't. 

 

Is this a sort of a bug?

 

Thanks

Not a bug - set your document background to transparent in the Document Settings dialog.

Thanks for the suggestion. But it seems that now it became a more complicated workaround, because nobody can't work with that background. So you need to go there every time you need to change something or just have an export. It worked in previous version by default. Why make it like that?

 

May I suggest you to just add an option to export format dialogue to include that background. It works great in Sketch.

 

Thanks

I have to agree with the OP: in AD 1.4 an exported slice would have a transparent background no matter what the background setting of the document was. That was very comfortable because you did not have to use the disturbing transparency grid as document background and still export transparent png files. Also it matches my user expectation: exporting an area without any element should result in transparency, not in white... I would much prefer the old behavior over the new one.

 

Thanks :)

I know this is an old thread, but did this issue ever get resolved?

It would be so much better If we could export the slices with transparent BG.

EDIT: I found the solution if any new users need it. https://lingualeo.com/es/jungle/affinity-designer-15-exporting-transparent-and-coloured-backgrounds-534212

 

P.S. I'm new to Affinity Designer.
