  1. Thats a good point to make, but that still doesn't justify the fact that grids are literally unusable by default. This is a basic rule for UX.. Don't ship a feature that doesn't work!
  2. Hey guys.. grids have been super buggy on OpenGL for months on end now. The solution for Mac Users is to switch to Metal, but the problem is that Designer ships with OpenGL as a default. Why is this? You can't expect the customers to troubleshoot and fix things that shouldn't be broken in the first place. Who cares about all the features you guys are pushing out if they don't even work properly in the first place? All of these bugs are really pushing me to switch back to the Adobe suite, and I really don't want to do that.
  3. Thank you. Literally all they need to do is enable Metal by default for Mac and the issue would be completely solved (according to my experience, not sure if it applies to everyone.). Is there a reason why they have stuck to using OpenGL even though I and many others have repeatedly complained during the 1.7 beta? Because the grid is completely unusable with OpenGL on Mac.
  4. And just to clarify I love what you guys are doing, but all of these tiny problems that can be fixed in an instant really start to add up to make a frustrating experience.
  5. The pixel selection brush does not work on pixel objects when it is placed outside an artboard (i.e. the pasteboard). What's up with that?
  6. So when setting the gutter for a grid, the behaviour for the first and second axis grids are different. For the first axis, the gutter is not set on the origin side, but for the second axis, it is. I attached a screenshot for clarification: I'm using Metal instead of OpenGL since it was glitchy.
  7. It would be very nice if you could collapse all layers at once in the layers panel. Layers become very difficult to work with when you have many of them since selecting objects expands the parent layer, so you have to scroll back up and manually collapse them yourself. Perhaps you could have it so that layers are only expanded for as long as the item within it is selected? That way, after deselecting an object, the layer expansion goes back to its previous state, which is ether expanded or collapsed. Am I making any sense?

    X-Axis Grid Gutter not Working Right?

    When I adjust the vertical grid spacing in the settings, it does not spread out from the origin. As a result, the grid cells at the top and bottom are cut off by the edge of the artboard, even though the values are perfect multiples of the artboard. Switching to metal solves this issue.

    X-Axis Grid Gutter not Working Right?

    I tried all the options, and it seems like "software" is the only one that gets grids right. However, that option is so unbearably slow, it's like working on a computer from 50 years ago lol. I'm really liking the columns option in the beta. However, the grids are still buggy on the default option (OpenGL) in the beta too. Has this already been adressed in an inside update?
  10. I use a Wacom Intuos S, and many times when I go to select a tab on the right things get really crazy. For some reason, taps get registered as drags and the panels get rearranged in all sorts of crazy ways. I have to go and select "Reset Studio" every time. Maybe the solution lies in reducing the drag sensitivity for the panels while using a graphics tablet? Edit: Not the tabs themselves, but actually the drag handle for the panels. My mistake. I added an image for clarification.
  11. Sorry, but thats a little bit ridiculous. Often times I accidentally touch the drag handle, mistaking it for a tab. This results in the whole side panel being messed up. Its extremely unintuitive and painful. Remember, just because something isn't objectively a bug doesn't mean it can't be a pain in the a** for the user. User experience is everything..

    X-Axis Grid Gutter not Working Right?

    Is there a display option that is regarded to be the most stable? Because OpenGL was also buggy with grids. Thats why I switched to metal.
  13. Sorry, I think I'm not being clear enough. The tabs themselves are fine, but the drag handle (the two vertical lines) are the ones that are too sensitive. Please take a look at this screen recording: Screen Recording 2019-02-20 at 10.37.11 AM.mov Screen Recording 2019-02-20 at 10.37.11 AM.mp4
  14. No, it's not the driver's fault. I can replicate the issue with my trackpad as well. Even a 1px movement after clicking will mess up the whole panel when using the trackpad. Have you guys at least tested this on your end?
  15. It would be nice if we could use percentage values in the grid manager. That way, if an artboard is resized, the grid resizes with it.

    X-Axis Grid Gutter not Working Right?

    I tried setting the margins, but the grid still starts outside of it. Is there any way to shrink the grid to fit inside the margins?

    X-Axis Grid Gutter not Working Right?

    Right now when I set the gutter, there is no space between the line and the edge of the artboard on the origin sides. I want to be able to control the amount of space between the start of the grid and the edge of the artboard. See the image for clarification; the blue lines are where I want the grid lines to be.

    X-Axis Grid Gutter not Working Right?

    Ah there we go. I am a web designer by trade, so I am used to the positive Y axis being flipped (Origin at top left, not bottom left.) Thanks! Also, is there a way to have the gutter take effect on the margins as well? Or is there a different setting for that?

    Making a custom grid - things don’t line up

    I had the same problem; switching to metal works for me. Just wondering, is this bug fixed in 1.7? And are there any known downsides to using metal or OpenGL?
  20. Yup, it's no different. Even the slightest touch completely mixes up the sidebar. Let me know if you want to see a recording of it happening in case I'm being confusing.
  21. The swatches panel freezes and becomes unresponsive when adding a new global color from a new document. The issue is resolved after quitting and restarting the application. Let me know if you need any more info to replicate and fix this issue. Thanks.

    Swatches Panel Freezes After Adding Global Color

    Done, I'll let you know if I encounter this issue again.

    Grids are Super Glitchy

    When I turn on the grid, it doesn't show up on some artboards. However, when I click on the title of an artboard, it shows up, but then the grid disappears everywhere else. To make it worse, when I go to select or move an element within that artboard, the grid disappears again. I'm not sure if this is just something specific to my system, so I've included the file I encountered the bugs on here. Now, how often do you guys release bug fixes? It seems like there are many existing bugs that haven't been resolved for a very long time. Perhaps you guys should focus more on stability than new features? Or just release more incremental updates focused on bug fixes instead of putting everything into one big release. Design Practice.afdesign
