Is it possible to export affinity designer to PSD file with editable text? If yes, how?

 

For me, this is not a problem - export to PSD, and then open in Photoshop or Affinity Photo and redirect the font, of course, if it does not take much time. And I do not really need it.

Could you kindly elaborate on your answer? Did you mean you found a workaround to make the PSD text actually editable?

What option? This topic is about exporting to PSD format, not importing a psd file (which is what the option applies to).

It is somewhat.

As many devs, dare I say the majority, still require PSDs with text as editable text at handover,.

But from one of the explanations here, it sounds like it may never ever be fixed.

Affinity apps currently don't export PSD's with editable text - it wasn't implemented yet - and due to the lack of PSD documentation dealing specifically with text it's something that's not easy to achieve. We do hope to add editable text support later (export).

Thank you for some extra detail on this MEB, I am encouraged that the intent is there.

Admittedly though pragmatism and my experience here in these forums has taught me as there is no fixed date this may never happen.

Fingers crossed.

+1 to revisit this. It's an important part of a potential adobe-affinity workflow and it would make mixing in affinity and adobe in teams easier (I for one have to use photoshop for a web design project at the moment, and i find myself hating the UI/UX, however if I could just use affinity and export a viable psd from that, I could just give that to the team and be done with it)
