[By Design] Group effects not applied to exported children

Recommended Posts

This may be intended but in Affinity Designer group effects are not applied to children when exporting them using "Selection without background" as export area. This also happens when using the export persona.


For example, when exporting the ellipse layer (not the group) in the attached file using "Selection without background", the circle in the exported image is green instead of blue and is missing the outline.

I have a document with multiple layers on which a group effect is applied, but when using the export persona to export the individual layers, the effect is lost, so I have to apply the effect to each layer individually.
