    Skew distorts strokes

    Hi abra100pro, You'd be much better off using solid shapes than shapes with really thick strokes. That way you can make them into compound shapes which then makes it easy should you need to edit the red background for example as you only need to make a single change rather than editing several shapes. The distortion is improved by increasing the mitre limit on your strokes but when skewed as individual objects they don't appear to distort well. I'm unsure if the distortion you get is what you should expect or whether this would be considered a bug, I'm sure Sean will know the answer. The strokes don't appear to be being clipped when distorted but personally, I'd create the shapes as solids and use one of a variety of compound paths depending on how much flexibility you need. apSkew Updated.afdesign apSkew Updated Compound v1.afdesign apSkew Updated Compound v2.afdesign
  2. It could well be though I would have assumed/hoped that having files on an external drive wouldn't cause an issue!
  3. This is in 1.7.2 across the board. If I click on Resource Manager in either app it seems to function as expected and allows me to replace your missing linked .tif file with one of my own quite happily... Maybe your crash report will give the dev team some pointers as to the cause...
  4. Hi afbatch, The file is opening quite happily here in both AD and APub. What is slightly odd though is, because the .tif file KWB_2019-08-09_0095-Edit is linked in your original APub document it invokes the Resource Manager across all three apps despite Resource Manager currently only being an APub feature (as far as I'm aware)... It actually functions in both AD and AP in the same way as APub, allowing me to replace the missing .tif file with another file despite the fact you can't re-invoke the Resource Manager through either AD or AP unless I'm missing something... Maybe this is expected behaviour but seems strange if you are unable to re-invoke in AD and AP directly. Resource Manager Appears in both AD and AP when opening an AP file with a Linked Resource originally created in APub Is this expected behaviour?
  5. Hi Sean, Appreciate this wasn't on the bug fix list for 1.7.2 but I just wanted to highlight that the problem seems to have gotten worse in 1.7.2. Now what is happening is as follows: When the transform panel is initially docked the tab sequence on the transform panel is as expected 'X', 'Y', 'W', 'H', 'R', 'S'. When the transform panel is undocked the sequence changes to 'X', 'W', 'Y', 'H', '∞', (the link symbol), 'R', 'S' and when the transform panel is re-docked it is 'X', 'W', 'Y', 'H', '∞', (the link symbol) followed by 'Toggle UI' on and off, so 'R', 'S' aren't accessed at all. This happens across all three apps, which is I guess to be expected... transform panel.mp4
  6. Minor one here... The tab order on the transform panel is 'X', 'Y', 'W', 'H', 'R', 'S' when it is docked in the studio on opening AD and AP, however, when the transform panel is undocked/dragged out on its own the tab order changes to 'X', 'W', 'Y', 'H', 'R', 'S' (which is incorrect) and remains that way if re-docked to the studio. It is only reset to the correct order when AD and AP are closed down and relaunched. tab_order.mov

    Bounding box mischief

    This was definitely a reproducible bug in 1.7.1 but seems to have been fixed in 1.7.2

    Intermittent Leading Issues

    Hi Walt, You are indeed correct. I have to confess I've never had cause to use the Revert Defaults button before and I hadn't even realised what it did but now you've explained its purpose it makes perfect sense. I also hadn't realised, though it seems obvious now of course, that the Leading Override actually disables the Paragraph Leading completely, I'd wrongly assumed they interacted with each other regardless. So it appears as though this isn't a bug after all but expected behaviour.
  10. Hi affinity4Christ15, Are you able to upload your AD file so we can take a look? As Oval has asked can you elaborate on your process, e.g. are you exporting to a particular file format, i.e. pdf and sending the file to be litho or digitally printed or are you printing these yourself using your own printer? If the latter can you post a screengrab of your print dialogue window as well?

    Intermittent Leading Issues

    Same issue here on Mac... this bug appears in 1.7.1 and 1.7.2 and across all three apps. This basically happens when switching between the paragraph panel and the character panel and can reproduced as follows: Create a new document Use the Artistic Text Tool to create some text with paragraphs, i.e. including hard returns between lines Select the text using the Move Tool and adjust the Paragraph Leading using the Paragraph Panel and all works as expected With the text still selected now adjust the leading using Leading Override in the Character Panel, again all works as expected With the text still selected go back to the Paragraph Panel and the Paragraph Leading no longer works Create some new text in the same document with Paragraphs as per Step 2 and the Paragraph Leading in the Paragraph Panel still doesn't function The non functioning Paragraph Leading in the Paragraph Panel remains an issue until a New Document is created

    Skew distorts strokes

    Hi abra100pro, How have you created your source graphic, in particular the white area in the centre of the red background? Are you able to upload your file so we can see how you've created the elements? Creating something similar and distorting gives me this...
  13. That's no problem, glad I was able to help you...
  14. Your screenshots seem to be showing Designer as the active application from Studio Link within Publisher. The Fill option with Designer won't give you a background fill on a Shape Text box but if you are working in Publisher itself then you can achieve this using the Text Frame panel and selecting Fill from there...
  15. As it can be achieved directly in Publisher, it isn't a bug so I don't think there is any need to post in the Publisher Bug Forum.
  16. Hi db1844, It's not currently possible in AD, however, you can do it in APub using the Text Frame option which you will find under View > Studio. Once created you can then copy and paste it into Designer where you can continue to edit the text but you won't be able to change the background colour directly within AD.
  17. Is there any logic to the order in which a group of files are opened in AD and AP. I have a group of seven files called, 1.png, 2.png ... 7.png. If I select all from the finder and open them in either AD or AP they always open in a different order, i.e. the order of the file tabs reading from left to right when open in AD and AP is different each time they are opened with the exception of the last file which always appears as 7.png. These are the results showing the tab order in AD and AP when selecting all seven files in the finder and then right-clicking and selecting Open With. It's not a real issue and doesn't really cause any problems though it would be helpful if they opened either in the order they were selected or alphabetically.

    Alignment bug.

    The on-screen rendering issue appears to vanish when the Coverage Map is adjusted from this... to this... though I'm not sure what impact, if any, adjusting the Coverage Map actually has on the file itself? Anyone?
  20. I see your problem now... Out of interest are the "g" groups maintained when exporting back to SVG after having made any adjustments in AD, assuming that's what you are effectively doing?
  21. When the pdf is generated from the Chrome browser the opacity IS there when the file is opened in AD, that's the odd thing. Do the same from Firefox for example and the opacity isn't maintained. See the two files in my previous post. When you say SVG groupings are you referring to how you've grouped specific elements when creating the original file or something else?
  22. Hi Nailunia, If you print the file to a pdf from Chrome then the transparency is included, so maybe a workaround until the svg bug is fixed in AD? Marvel Characters Chrome.pdf Marvel Characters Chrome.afdesign
  23. These were simply a batch of seven png files sitting in their own folder. The files aren't edited in any way in between opening, simply select all seven files, open in AD/AP, quit and repeat and each time the order they open in is different. As MEB said earlier in the thread... so this looks to be currently by design but something that may be rectified at some point.
  24. But the 'issue' (if you can call it that) is that AD and AP open the files in a different order each time (see my first post) so even if they were opened in their unsorted order you would surely expect the files to at least open in the same order each time I think, as in I assume even an unsorted order has order if that makes sense?
  25. I just printed the files to a pdf and opened them in AD so maybe I'm bypassing the objective? Obviously once edited in AD they can be re-exported as svg files. Marvel Characters.afdesign Marvel Characters.svg Radial.afdesign Radial.svg
