Hi

 

I'm using Affinity Designer to create icons.

 

I a single layer, I have an icon with 7 sizes.

 

My slices names as like this:

 

_16x16

_32x32

_64x64

 

etc.

 

When I'm in the Export Persona, I select "Slices" and clicks "Export slices", then I enter a name like "MyIcon".

 

Is there a way to tell Affinity Designer to merge the exported filename "MyIcon" into the slicename, så the slice names will end up as...

 

MyIcon_16x16

MyIcon_32x32

MyIcon_64x64

 

...?

 

That way I can reuse the layer, change the icons and export it with a new name like "MyNewIcon" and it will automatically export slices as ..

 

MyNewIcon_16x16

MyNewIcon_32x32

MyNewIcon_64x64

 

I would like to call the slice names something like...

 

{filename}_16x16

{filename}_32x32

{filename}_64x64

 

etc.

 

Thanks

You can customize the slice file output naming in the Export Persona under the top "path components" settings via a combination of text and the available variables. See also this thread where some of these things are discussed inside:

Thank you for answering my post.

 

Not exactly what I'm looking for.

 

When you click "Export slices" a save-dialog appears ... the name you enter as filename in this dialog, that is the name I want to prefix on all slices.

Save dialog allows you to define only the disk name. This is necessary, because the file path definition in Export Persona is only relative.

If the icon is square then the square size variable is adequate.
