That's an Image layer, if you right click on the layer and select Rasterise it will become editable.

why don't you make your own suitcase and add it to the Assets panel, its just a rounded rectangle and a donut shape.

I placed this image from my folder where I saved all the icons I made and they are all saved as an svg.  So, when I placed it, it becomes an image?  I didn't notice.  And I thought rasterize meant making an object a jpg.  I haven't found the import button to get all my icons.

When you place a svg it stays a svg, maybe placed the wrong file?

I feel bad bugging everyone :(  I've watched videos and googled like crazy..but certain tiny things like this are hard to find.  I'm going to open a new layer and place from my folder.  Now with the wording, I typed all them in, but again, same thing happened.

If you drag or place an SVG it will be an embedded document, if you open the SVG it will open as a curve. You can then add it to an Assets category.

Yes,

This is an Assets category called Button Assets and a sub category called Icons.

could you post the suitcase file?

because i wonder if the svg you exported was a vector before export.

you can export a raster file as a svg, but when opened in designer it will show as a image file.

yes that's what i thought, it is a raster file exported as a svg.

so something went wrong when you created the icon

your kidding!  I redid all of my icons because before I had them saved as a png.  So, I redid them and saved as svg.  Well, I know what the problem is.  I created them in designer tho.  I'll redo them again.  Thank you!!

How did you create the icons in designer?

Right, using the pen tool and exporting as svg should work

so if it shows up as an image or pixel then is not a vector, right?

Correct, an embedded document can still be a vector but not editable within Affinity Designer unless you open the actual file and as dutchshader has noted it must contain vector curves not bitmap saved as SVG. SVG is a container file that can store more than just vectors.

I did save them as vectors (svg).  But I better do it again to make sure...I exported them to my folder as an svg.

No, you must have saved the png file as an svg, this doesn't convert a png to a vector it merely places the png within the svg container. In order to convert a png to a vector it either needs to be traced or redrawn using vector shapes or the pen tool.

they were saved as pngs first.  I've got so many files and windows open right now.  I don't know how it happened.  I'll work on them later today.  Getting tired...thanks guys!!

PNG is a raster image format, which means anything you save in that format will be a 'flat' one layer image with all vectors converted to pixels. In that respect it is like JPEG.

Well yes, that's a SVG file with an embedded image, so no vector curves or paths are used for this. You can easily prove that when you open the file with an text editor ...

... there you can see the embedded PNG base64 bits which follow the SVG image command, aka:  <image x="18" y="7" width="258" height="244" xlink:href="data:img/png;base64, ... lots of data bytes here ... "/>

So what you accidently did here is saving a raster/bitmap PNG image as an SVG. You have instead to use the vector drawing of that suitcase symbol, which in SVG code would look with path coordinate definitions more like this ...

You can preview that SVG suitcase code and how that renders here online at codepen.io.

BTW, always take a look what the individual layers in the layers panel write there in (...), from those you can see if something is an image, an embedded document, a curve, a vector shape etc.

they were saved as pngs first.

Once a vector is saved as a PNG (raster), you cannot reverse the process. It's a one way conversion.


The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!
