  1. All good, thanks for letting me know!
  2. Hey Matt, just wanted to ping you again and ask if this might show up in 1.7.X or should we expect it to be in a later version? Thanks again, so far 1.7 has been a really solid release!
  3. Thanks Matt! Keep up the amazing progress, I can't wait to kick CS6 to the curb for good!
  4. Designer keeps getting better and better, I'm almost completely able to move my work over from an aging copy of Illustrator CS6. One item I would love to see incorporated is the option for dashed lines to allow for dashes to be aligned to corners and path ends. I use this a lot when drawing dashed lines in technical drawings as I get a much cleaner result. Is this something that might be added to Designer at some point in the future? If not I'd love to formally put a request in for it :) Thanks!
  5. Thanks MEB! Appreciate the follow-up!
  6. Thanks MEB, To be honest I didn't even consider constraints a factor, I made a new test where I removed all constraints on both the objects and artboards themselves and attempted to repeat the issue and unfortunately it still existed. I'm attaching a quickly mocked up example I created that shows the issue I'm encountering. Thanks! Mike Hermes ObjectPosition-Example1.afdesign
  7. Whenever you copy/paste between artboards (of the same size especially) the objects do not retain the X position and instead center themselves on the new artboard at the proper Y position. In Illustrator there is a 'paste in place' that provides the expected behavior, and while AF Designer doesn't specifically have this it appears to work similarly except for this issue. I've tested this on new and even previously imported Illustrator documents and the issue persists. The only way to get around this issue is to anchor a shape in the opposite corners of the artboard and copy everything across, this forces the shapes to retain their positions. Tested on both the latest release ( and latest beta ( I've been looking through the board and haven't found an adequate answer to my issue so I figured I'd post about it myself and see if anything turns up. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I use elements across multiple artboards a lot and am trying to move away from Illustrator but this bug is preventing me from doing so. Thanks for your help!

    Align / arrange Bug - Can not complete change

    I also encountered this exact same issue. I find if I close AD and reopen it the issue goes away for a while, something I'm doing triggers it (I'm not sure what exactly). I thought at first maybe it had to do with me switching Renderers (one of the many things I tried to fix it) but the issue popped back up again. Hopefully they can figure this one out and fix it soon!
