Two critical bugs when exporting a file as a PSD file.

1. Any layer marked hidden in Affinity Photo shows up in the exported PSD file as empty.

2. In the exported PSD file, all layers are clipped to the size of the canvas in the Affinity Photo document.

The first bug can be worked around by unhiding the layer before export. A pain but doable until fixed.

The second bug is fatal. We are looking at buying about 10 licences to deploy Affinity Photo to our team but we have to maintain compatibility with Photoshop as some work will go outside where that is their design package. So any layer that extends beyond the canvas in a document is rendered useless by Affinity Photo clipping to the canvas. This means we will have to look for an alternate application. Which is a real frustration as AP does so many things so very well.

Can you hyper-escalate this bug to the development team and provide some kind of workaround in the interim?

By the way, importing of PSD files—some with some pretty esoteric filters, adjustment layers, masks, etc.—works very well in Photo. Kudos for that guys.

Affinity Photo 1.7.3 on macOS 10.14.6.
