There is a Copy as SVG in the preferences in the General tab. I don't know what the problem is with importing SVGs, they can have raster parts.

 

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 11.7.3 
Affinity Designer 2.0.4 | Affinity Photo 2.0.4 | Affinity Publisher 2.0.4 | Beta versions as they appear.

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

It doesn't matter what I copy, could be boxes, could be imported SVGs, instead of copying an SVG, Affinity Designer rasterizes it into an image. This is super annoying

I agree this should work (when set the preference to 'copy as svg'). I miss it too. This is not a 1.7 bug, the bug is there for at least over a year now. Already reported by several people on the forum.

Do you understand what @Old Bruce said about SVG files, that they can contain raster as well as vector objects?

Yes, I know what SVG files are and I also have that preferences toggled on, otherwise I wouldn't have quoted it's name in the title of the thread.

Again it doesn't matter what I copy - and if it's a curve or a shape there shouldn't be anything to rasterized - to be more precise: when I use the export panel it doesn't rasterize these either.

And even if it was rasterizing all of these: It still would have an SVG header and it doesn't.

 

So yeah, it's deffo broken, because it puts - no matter what - a PNG file in your clipboard.

That does not happen for me.
