Exporting locked layer

Recommended Posts

With all elements of an Affinity Designer graphic selected (cmd-A), attempting to export the selection as a PNG without the background, the result is that locked layers don't export —only the unlocked layers.  


Great product!  I love it!  Thanks for all your hard work!  You guys are amazing!

Hi Ed B


That's because selecting with cmd+A only selects the unlocked layers, locking a layer is designed to prevent the transform of the layer and selection on the canvas. If you select all the object in the layers panel then you should see it exports fine
