Fantastic concept and proving really useful but I seem to be hit a few problems:
Pasting from Affinity Designer does not work. I think reading their forum, others have this problem but Affinity have not provided any support on this. If anybody at Atomi has Designer, it would be useful to know if this might one day be possible.
Some vectors are distorting when pasted to freeform but are fine as image imports. See mask.svg
Some vectors with multiple curves lose their layout when pasted to freeform but again are fine as image imports. See red.svg
Paste as freeform on top.
vectors.zip (1.8 KB)
The vectors have originally come from different places - but have all been exported from Affinity Designer as SVG and then the contents copied and pasted into Saola. I have tried different export settings and nothing works. I thought it might be Designer, but it has exported other SVGs from the same source and some more complex and worked perfectly.
