I have a weired problem with Affinity Designer...
I'm working on the up-to-date version under Windows 10. 

I have a couple of icons, that I created some while ago (I believe before updating to .135). These icons are saved as .svg and I need them to be pure vectors without rasterized pixel-portions, because MS Visual studio is supposed to find and recolor the hex-color values.
I've been careful not to use any effects that were incompatible with SVG (no transparency, no masks etc.)


I attach the SVG, I exported some time ago which has been exported without a problem. Opening the .affinitydesigner file also exports without a problem.
However - when I re-open the exported SVG and try to save (via export to svg) it (not having touched and altered anything) Designer wants to rasterize certain parts, rendereing the file unusable for me.

Is there something, I'm not getting?

new export.svg

old export.svg

Always use the "more" button in the export panel to make sure the rasterize settings is the one you want.
Don't assume the settings are the same when doing a new export.
test.svg was exported from AFdesigner beta
Opened test.svg in the retail version and exported to test2.svg
