Hi loves!

Super affinity designer newbie. I make logos for clients & for some reason having a hard time exporting to SVG.. I’ve sliced before on most of my designs & I usually have to do it a few times until it magically works. The specific design I created is like another I did & the SVG export worked. For some reason I can’t figure it out. I bought the book & super love it... but it doesn’t go into a lot of detail about exporting sadly. Please help. I will add file & hopefully someone can get it! I know I’m doing something wrong if I have to try to 20 times before not knowing what I did right. Haha. 

 

Thanks so so much!

Hi LeslieHedgesDesign, I'm not having any issues exporting your file as an SVG. :)

My default settings.

You mention slices, so I guess you are using the export persona. If you don’t need to slice your project you might find it easier to use the export option from the documents menu as DM1 has shown above.

Thanks guys! REALLY appreciate you both!  Here is the file for when I use DM1 method... I’ve been using the same basic defaults too... it just looks pixelated when exported... but some don’t always look this way.. why I’m confused. 

let me know what you think.....

If you see pixelated edges try turning off Rasterise in Export settings. Change it from 'Unsupported Properties' to 'None'.

Edit. No that didn’t work out at all.

On closer inspection of your design, there isn’t much of it that is still vector, in particular the mask at the very bottom of the layer stack seems to contain the bulk of your design and it is a bitmap, perhaps you accidentally rasterised your vector design at an earlier step.?

Thanks so much! I always use vector layers when designing. I created a vector circle & then took an eraser & created all the designs inside so they would be transparent. I did this for my last clients logo & turned out fine after 15 attempts of trying to see how to SVG export it. :8_laughing:

thats why I did slices with some... because they never worked when regular exporting an SVG. Again guys thanks soooo much. I’ll keep trying around & seeing what happens. Let me know if y’all ever come out with a detailed video of why this happens. lol :10_wink:

When erasing I have found that drawing a vector shape and using Edit menu,Geometry, subtract works well. Or simply paint on background with the vector brush, use Expand stroke on brush stokes and then use the subtract. The result remains a pure vector so no pixelation when exporting as svg.

I'm not sure why but it doesn't appear possible to subtract grouped curves which makes the process a bit messy.
