I used a number of different style vector brushes when I inked a design in Affinity Designer. When I went to convert the brush strokes to curves, only the solid standard brush strokes were converted and all specialized or non-standard brushes were gone....

I backtracked and selected a single stroke made with a non-standard vector brush and went to convert to curves or expand... and it was grayed out.

Is there a way to convert these types of brushes to fills? I need to be able to use my vector line work made in Affinity Designer in other apps as vectors....

Is there a solution to this? Thanks

Hi, Boldinedesign,

The vector brush is a vector only in that there is a vector core that has a bitmap stretched or repeated over it. It is sort of in between vector and bitmap. Depending somewhat on what the specialized brushes were like, you might be able to export the work as a .png, and put that thru an auto-tracer to turn it to .svg, etc.

Hi Boldlinedesign,
Only the Basic category can be expanded to curves since they are truly vector based stokes. All other categories are raster based textures/images stretched or repeated along the vector path and as such cannot be expanded to curves.
