AD folks, 


Any way for me to convert an imported .png file created using the Sketch app so that I can manipulate it in Affinity Designer?


I created a new document in AD and imported the above mentioned image but cannot figure out how to work off of this image, making minor changes/effects, etc.


Thanks in advance.

Hi christovw66

You have to export from Sketch as PDF, SVG or EPS to be able to keep the object editable as vector objects. PNG is a raster format (composed by pixels), so the only way to change it is using the Pixel Persona tools in Designer (or Affinity Photo) but it's a lot less flexible than if you export the file from Sketch in a vector format.
