Because Serif staff have said it shouldn't be there.

Oh. OK. Well, they should change that position!

Absolutely! It would be proof Serif actually cares enough to listen to their customers needs!

Would love this feature in Affinity Designer. My website projects end up being huge files solely due to the embedded images. The ability to link these would make this the ultimate web design tool. As it stands, I'm thinking of moving my web designs over to publisher, but don't want to lose the extra functionality that designer provides for exporting slices.

How much of your time is spent working on the design, vs exporting slices?

You could do all the design work in Publisher, then File > Edit in Designer when you need to work with the slices. Then File > Edit in Publisher when you want to get back. (Though you'll probably want to take care that you don't let Publisher convert your Artboards to Spreads when you open the file there.)

Thanks Walt. 

Yes, I'm inclined not to use the 'Edit in' option as I've had issues with saving the file in the wrong format and regretted it. The problem I have is that I use Google File Stream to save my files, in real-time, to the cloud so I have to wait longer and longer the larger the file gets. I suppose another option would be to split my designs into different files but I'm surprised that this feature isn't already in Designer. After the release of publisher I'd have thought they'd have re-purposed the code.

I hope you're keeping a local backup copy, too.

Jumping in to re-enforce what everyone else here has said. Add an image linking feature to Designer just like Affinity Publisher.

+1

This is quite needed!

Good news for you. This is implemented in the next version 1.9x. You can test this already in the beta.
