"Convert to curves" on a text with "Outer Glow" layer effect

Recommended Posts

This is about Affinity Photo (Desktop version for Mac) 1.5.2

and Affinity Designer (Desktop version for Mac) 1.5.5


If I do have a text with letters next to each other and I am using an outer glow, when converting into curves (necessary to export for professional printing purposes), each letter will get a glow individually, resulting in another visual effect.


Thus I will need to adjust every letter again and it will not look like the effect I had before converting to curves.


It would be nice to be able to choose whether the layer effect should be applied on the whole group of layers (in this case, a word instead on of each letter) or on each layer separately.


Please view screenshots to see what I mean (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Thank you for this great application!
