Problem exporting svg file with Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I created a logo with Affinity Designer and then decided to improve it by adding some outer shadow effects to the layers and groups that are part of the logo.


I exported the logo as svg file but when I uploaded it to my site the shadows were not displayed and on top of that part of it got blurred.


I opened the svg file with Affinity Designer to check whether it was a problem related to my browser or not but it happened the same. 


Then I checked that by deselecting the outer shadow effects the problem disappeared.  


Do you guys know anything about it?


Probably I am doing something wrong. I am relatively new on graphic design.


Find attached some files for more information.


Many thanks in advanced!

Hi Pedro Suárez,


Welcome to the forums!


Layer FX aren't vector I'm afraid so they will be rasterised on export. If you go to File > Export > SVG and then click the More button then under the Rasterise dropdown menu select Rasterise Nothing.


This should appear better for you :)

it could be because you have created the shadow in the group.

i ungrouped and selected all elements of the loge an created a outer shadow .

now i looks ok.
