Expanding Document left a black band

Recommended Posts

I expanded the document to create a different aspect ration and a black band appeared in the image (where there was previously transparency). Note that when I exported the image to a PNG, the black band was not present in the image.

The original file was an EPS file.

Steps to recreate:

  1. Open the EPS file
  2. Open the Document Settings... dialog 
  3. Entered new vertical dimension to correct aspect ratio
  4. Selected transparent background
  5. Clicked on OK

Hi Tishihtzu,

Welcome to the Affinity Forums!

Would it be possible for you to attach the original EPS file you opened please so we can try to recreate the issue?
