Vector EPS files that I have bought from shutterstock lose all groupings when opening it up in affinity, but I know they are there cause when I open them in illustrator, everything is grouped. How do I retain all the groups with affinity?

Hi Mike018,

 

I suspect the file you are opening was created in AI and exported as an EPS file, which will also store a copy of the .ai file in the EPS.  When you open that in AI, you are seeing the AI file, which contains the groups and not the actual EPS file.  When you open the same file in Designer, we open the EPS file which is why the items are no longer in groups.

Is there any way to retain the groups of the EPS files commonly downloaded from these types of sites, where the author probably made them in illustrator?
