I often have to rasterize layers to clean them up but I can only do that one layer at a time. Can you please add this functionality?

That would be a useful feature.

No - it will flatten to one rasterise layer.

We just need to have a look at the command and see if it can't be applied to multiple layers in one go.

ugh yes i definitely need this, i'm making a huge collection of digital stickers (600+), mainly working in procreate but bringing them to affinity designer on my laptop

and i need to rasterize them all individually 😭 it's such a pain

Definitely need this feature. Made a stack with alignment of 100s of layers. Need to rasterize every aligned layer individually, and export them.

Can you not use Designer's Export Persona to export the layers as PNG, JPEG or TIFFs.

If need be you may have to make a new document and import the raster versions.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

I tried this, it exports layers without the desired rotation from stacking. This is the exact reason why I need to rasterize: precondition for the export step.

Back in march you confirmed that it is a problem. Changed your mind?

Haven't changed my mind, I still would like to see the ability to make a slice from a layer and have that slice automatically cropped to the canvas dimensions. That is what I was agreeing with.

Here we have some people wanting to rasterize a bunch of layers. My suggestion of using the export Persona won't fix the problem of the layers being too small or too large. In some cases it will work though, I was just pointing out a possible solution.

Your problem still needs to be addressed, and I hope it is done so. I think it would be an obvious option, "Do you want the 8 x 10 print you ordered to be 8 x 10 or will 13 x 7  suffice?"

Actually, rasterize & trim for multiple layers (individually, not flattened) does solve my issue, too.

I helped myself by using macros to speed up the process.

Was this ever looked it? It's been over two and a half years and I'm still having to rasterize each layer one at a time.
