I want to export my results with grid or guide line. Are you under development or already having that functions? In detail, In Affinity designer, grid and guideline managers exist. Therefore, I want my illustration export png or other file with grid and guideline. So, this maximizes my client's understanding of the design configuration of my illustrations.

Hello @BAK UI-SEOK,

welcome to the forum.

The grid and the guides are design aides and not design elements. Thus they cannot be exported.

If you have to design something that includes these aides on export you have to find a way to do this on your own. I have two suggestions:

  1. Create a grid on your own with vector lines, spacing and color according to the grid or a design that suits your project better.
  2. Create an empty document, setup the grid and rulers and make screenshot. Place this as an image in the background of your project.

Both ways will include the grid in the exported file.

You also can save either of the grid objects as assets for later use.

I personally do not think to make grids and rulers optionally exportable (or) printable. But it may be worth to make it a feature suggestion :)

Although grids are backgrounds, bleeds are also, so why not make an option in More when exporting a work. Only if you want this you can activate otherwise unchecked. So, it could be useful.

Yes, that could be an option, and useful.

What is “more”? Can you please to detail?

If you choose to EXPORT a file, down under in the shown window there is an option button which is called MORE. In this menu you can choose metafile and more.
