    Junon got a reaction from Jowday in Workarounds for Distortion, Warp, or Perspective distort?   
    That's a silly children's game. Knowing whether or not they've acknowledged it and/or have it on a roadmap internally would be beneficial for prospective buyers.

    Junon got a reaction from rubs in Constraints in Affinity Designer are seriously flawed - response required   
    I suppose most of us are in the camp that the features work at a basic level if they're included at all. From a QA perspective, a lot of broken features isn't having a lot of features. They don't equate, and it makes the product look buggy and cheap. So when a major feature such as Constraints just flat out doesn't work, it makes me (personally) feel uneasy pushing for or using Affinity software at all.
    Corollary: I'd rather the feature be completely removed until it's fixed (as in, working at all) rather than being taunted with it every second and having it clutter up the menus.
    Further, a lot of users I'd imagine are developers and understand the need for proper bug tickets being submitted in order for things to get fixed. People voicing their concern for a particular issue isn't "you're not moving fast enough", it's more "we want to make sure the team knows this is important to us". The latter is entirely justified.
    As far as I can tell, nobody is putting down the developers. We're all still here using the product, we're all still happy we paid for it or else we wouldn't take the time to post on the forums and we would have moved to other software.
    So please don't attack us for posting concerns here - the developers should be happy there's such a demanding audience. It means we want this to be a good product. I'm tired of Adobe's and Corel's stranglehold on the market and I think Affinity has a really good chance at uprooting them. That's why I'm here.

    Hey there - it's a few months short of a year and it appears constraints are still massively bugged, to the point I cannot use them. As @rubs outlines, changing constraints should not affect the existing dimensions, but that's exactly what I'm seeing too.
    The only things listed above that seem to be fixed are that bad glitches can now be undone (kudos to making pretty much everything you do in AD go straight to the undo stack - it's so much more powerful) and I haven't (personally) seen objects disappear, except for when they go off the artboard (but the bounding boxes are still visible) nevermind, just ran into disappearing elements.
    Throwing my hat into the ring here, this is incredibly frustrating.

    Junon got a reaction from Sean P in Duplicating layer while adjusting halftone (maybe other) filter(s) causes duplicated layer preview to incorrectly reflect filter preview   
    Hi Sean,
    I think that's close but not entirely correct - it depends on the intended functionality. As it stands, the preview isn't updated for the first layer that you're previewing the filter on (in step 2 of OP). That's to say, layers you're previewing filters on don't have their layer panel component updating, either. I'm not sure if that's intentional or not (either case would make sense IMO) but it's not just the cancelling out that's bugged. The fact the behavior is different between the original layer preview and the duplicated layer preview is what this bug is more specifically identifying.
    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for that!

    I wouldn't spend too much time trying to figure it out—this is really one for us to fix now that we have a few crash reports from multiple users. I'll get this sent to development.

    If by crash report you mean the dump that Apple provides, I have attached one in the OP as a spoiler tag :)
    It's also worth mentioning that I was going to demonstrate this to a colleague but it appears to be intermittent at times - I couldn't reproduce after letting it 'cool off', so there must be some state-specific condition that causes the bug to occur. I wouldn't begin to have any idea what those conditions are, though.

    Hi junon
    Thanks for raising this. It is a variation on an already known issue when resizing a document so i shall update the report

    The constraints in Affinity Designer are seriously flawed. To illustrate, I've attached a file that illustrates several problems at once. Here at least the following unexpected situations happen when trying to change or remove the constraints from the existing objects, or grouping them:
     
    Objects change dimensions; Objects change position; Objects get invisible; Objects change scale so they are not proportional anymore; Undo no longer restores objects to their original state; A change to a single object affects all similar objects although there are no symbols in the file.  
    I'm using AD for about a year now. As you may know, I've patiently reported these problems several times but unfortunately nothing changed yet. Please don't get me wrong, I love AD and I appreciate all the work you do. Since working in UI projects (which use lots of artboards, symbols and constraints) is the main reason I adopted Affinity Designer, I'm always trying to circumvent bugs that shouldn't exist in the first place, and these are among the worst. I think they are serious flaws and I'd very much like you to provide a solution.
     
    Thanks, and sorry for the long post.
