A quick search and I couldn't find anything.

There should be a way to easily export a selected embedded document.

This is especially important when you have to share open files with colleagues who need to use assets in other software or suites. Many web developers I work with require the original images I use in my layouts - so the can set up their websites to automatically crop and treat images in the same manner.

Hi @Izzy,

I am not quite sure if this is what you are looking for. If you double click on an embedded document it should open in a seperate tab. From there you can do a 'Save as...' and then close the tab again. (I'm not at my Affinity computer right now so I can't try before posting. But I know it has worked for me that way several times).

No, you can't
But you can export as pdf or use the export persona to have all images reside in a folder that you could share.

Sorry for posting wrong information. I'll do a check later today.

Alas no response from Serif whatsoever

As they have stated elsewhere, Serif staff usually do not comment on or respond to feature requests.

I made a request once to have this option be available to make changes to embedded/linked files in the seperate tab and have it saved
 

 

Back at the Affinity computer. Thanks for linking to your original post.

I now can recall what I had in mind (and what worked for me in the past). I double clicked on an embedded document to open it in a new tab. Then I copied everything, pasted into a new document ('New From Clipboard') and saved under a new name.

I did this more in a rescue situation than in a productive workflow. I admit this is a rather cumbersome way to export embedded for what the OP is asking. In this context this request does makes sense :)
