Request Feature - Designer - Saving PNG with transparent background and white background

Recommended Posts

I have moved from Adobe to Affinity Designer and the one major thing that is lacking is the way to be able to export/save a file as a PNG with the option to have the background as white and as transparent, without having to remove the background manually. This is available in Adobe and i think it is really needed in Affinity. It is crucial for logo designers to have this feature and having to do it manually is a bit of a ball ache every time. 

 

Would be great if this could be updated in the near future. Thanks.

Thank you!

 

When I got to export it doesn't give me that option, just what file i want to save as and the PNG file didn't have that as an option. 

 

Do you have a screenshot or how to do it? Sorry.

Weird becuase i cant actually change my area. Its greyed out and wont let me press on it. I am on the trial, so i will be paying for it, so maybe that might be why. But its the most up to date version so i dont know why it wouldnt let me.

Perhaps you missed DutchShader's first step: Select all.

Without an active selection you'll only have the choice to export the entire document.

Ah thank you! Yes I did sorry. Thank you both you! 

 

Also, random one, Is there an easy/quick way to make the fill and outline colour the same? Without using the tipet or saving the colour in the swatch. In Adobe I used to be able to just drag the colour from the fill circle into the outline circle but i cant do that on this.

Hi Dee-Designer,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

No, there's no easy way to do it, sorry. While i agree it would be nice to do it just by dragging it i (personally) don't see much use cases for this. In what cirscunstances are you using shapes with the same fill and outline colour?

A lot in logos and fonts after making them into curves,to make the letters thicker. It would be handy if you could drag the colour from the circle on the fill/outline Even to another shape and it fills it, just to save time on having to do them indiviually. Otherwise I guess maybe selecting the different shapes you want with the same colour and they all get the same fill or outline colour at the same time, is that possible already?

Yes, you can change the fill/stroke colour of several objects at once. Just select them all and change the fill or stroke colour.

If you are working with specific colour for logos you can also add them to a palette in the Swatches panel (or use one of the existing ones) and drag them from there over the object. It will be applied to the fill or stroke of the object depending which one is selected in the colour switcher in the Colour panel.
