.ai file not opening properly

Recommended Posts


Trying to open an .ai file (attached) in Designer and it is not rendering some of the objects properly.

It opens OK in Xara and if I export it from Xara as a pdf, Designer has no problem. 

What is happening?

Any thoughts?

Hi RichardM,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

The missing elements are using gradient meshes on the main shape for their base colour which are not supported in Affinity Designer and are being imported as solid filled shapes. I'm checking the colour issues on a Windows system now - this may be related with a colour profile issue.
