Copy/paste slice or edit all slices -- is this possible?

Recommended Posts

I'm creating a font using Affinity Designer and I have to export each letter individually, this could be done easily but I need the slices to be 256x256 in their dimensions. Right now the only ways I know how to do this is by either dragging and creating a lot of 256x256 slice squares or by turning each letter object into a slice but then I would have to rescale those as well! 


It would be really useful if there was a way to just copy drag a slice, or being able to edit the transform of multiple selected slices. Am I missing something or is this really not possible?

Hi Pining,


It isn't possible to duplicate slices or apply a transformation to all of your slices I'm afraid. You will have to resize each slice manually

You could set the size   256w, 256h   in the slice size box




It is then possible to save these attributes and copy them to multiple slices using the copy paste format buttons.




the slices will all be 256 x 256., even if they started out bigger. It resizes the slice to 256 x 256 but does not keep the aspect ratio. So you must make the slice square.


It might help, or not ?
