Exporting Art Board: Dimensions wrong

Recommended Posts

When exporting an art board from Affinity Designer I select a particular art board, change the size with linked proportions but the proportions are not retained. Rather than a portrait oriented image I end up with an image that is squished. Sometimes it works properly but mostly not. This happens whether I choose the option to export selection (with or without background) or export the art board.

Sure thing Callum... here’s one https://www.dropbox.com/s/fhijotovwfhal28/Chess Saturdays 2.afdesign?dl=0

And I’ve found this happens with any file that I have with multiple art boards. Sometimes I can get an export with the correct dimensions but I have not been able to sort out why it works. I’ve tried different ways... changing the height instead of the width, width instead of height. Selection with background, without background, or the specific artboard. If I try enough times I’ll eventually get one. 

Thanks!

Hi Denny,

This looks like a known issue that is currently logged with our developers to be fixed in a future version. When you go to export before writing anything in the dimensions fields please unlock and then lock the aspect ratio (click the lock twice) and then enter your values into the dimension fields. This should hopefully solve your issue in the short term :)

Thanks

Callum

This appears to have been resolved in the 1.7.0.4 beta.
