  1. When working on a big layout I use copy on an object with Effects applied to it and than paste FX on the target objects to make sure all my objects get the exact same outer shadow. But it's not working as expected: when pasting the Effects on an object with a different size, the values of the Effects (at least with Outer Shadow) are different!! It looks like Designer does some sort of proportionally scaling to the surface of the object we paste the Fx unto, but that's not consistent and unwanted anyway. I don't know what Designer does with the values, but it's not pasting the FX the way s
  2. There should be an option to copy and paste layer effects 1:1, without any changes to parameters. When copying and pasting layer effects, editor would change some parameters like sizes, offsets, blurs etc. Assuming it compensates layer size differences. When working on UI its very annoying to keep values in sync between layers.
  3. Hi. I found when I copy layer effects from one object to another, the effects will resize. Is there any way I can persist the effects parameters? Thanks! This is what I did to test: draw a 200x200 rectangle apply an outline effect to it with radius of 20px copy the rectangle draw a 100x100 rectangle edit → paste fx the 100x100 rectangle will have an outline effect with 10px radius
  4. First-time poster, long-time AD user. This feels a bit nitpicky, but it is throwing off my workflow... When using "paste style" or "paste effect" from one shape to another, the effects' values change, apparently scaling to accommodate size differences between shapes, but this happens even when the "Scale with Object" box is unchecked. Steps to reproduce: 1. Create two different size shapes without using copy and paste. 2. Apply any effect to one shape, make sure "Scale with Object" is unchecked. 3. Copy that shape, "paste style" or "paste effect" to the other shape, noti
  5. I've done for my Content panel a particular dash line : • 1 long + 2 short. I've used the Appearance panel because it's impossible without it, we miss boxes in Stroke panel… If I want to apply this dash line to the curve, values get crazy. It's the same for FX and stroke thickness too. For every curve, I need to adjust values. Not really user friendly. But there is one thing more incredible. If I do in VectorStyler the same dash line (1 long + 2 short), look at how it's very intuitive (I really like it), and if I copy/paste in AD, surprise ! The dash line is perfect
  6. Hello, just found that some FX settings are not pasted correctly between text objects (I have to check but it's also possible they are not recalled correctly from styles). I just: 1) Select a text object 2) Edit -> Copy 3) Select another text object 4) Edit -> Paste FX... For example, 3D and emboss radius patameter values are not the same as source object after pasting to another object. Using AP 1.8.3 on Windows 10 x64 (Italian). Is that a known issue? I find it very strange nobody already reported it. Thanks, Mario
  7. I'm a new Affinity Designer user. (I ended up purchasing it after using the demo, largely because of the help I got here!) I am trying to apply consistent layer effects to a number of objects. Specifically, I am trying to give them all a 2px border. Some googling showed me how to copy a layer and use alt-shift-V to paste just the layer effects. But when I do this, the size keeps changing. I'll copy a layer that has a 2px border, and when I paste it to two other layers, it'll be 1.8px or 2.5 px. This means that I have to manually change it, which kind of eliminates the point of being able
  8. It's a long known bug, that if you past layer effects to an object, some settings like i.e. radii of embossing changes "arbitrarily". Pasting the layer effects from one object to another should not change anything, especially if the "Scale with object" option is not set. I did some testing on this and I found something interessting: I have a rectangle 20x20pt, and I apply a 50px embossing effect. I copy the element to my clipboard. Then, two options are possible: a) I create a new rectangle in a new size, i.e. 20x80pt and paste the layer effect using "Edit" > "Paste Style". T
  9. Hello, I right-click on an object in the layers menu and choose copy. I then click on another object in the layers menu to make it active. I go to Edit > Paste FX to apply the FX. In this case, the copied FX was a Bevel/Emboss - Radius 0.5 px, Soften 1 px. What was pasted was Pillow - 0.6 px, Soften 1.2 px. The other settings seem to remain the same, however, they were the default. I would have hoped that the FX paste would retain all the settings contained from the original copy and would be pasted but this seems not to be the case. I am learning to use this software and maybe I am ju
  10. Another bug in the latest version of Designer. Pasting layer effects on other layers does paste the same effect but with double, or just completely jumbled up values. For example, one rectangle has a 30 px gaussian blur, pasting that same effect on a different rectangle yields a 60 px blur or a complete mess like 76.4 px or whatever. No idea how to consistently replicate this. Sometimes works properly. Most of the time it doesn't.
  11. When I save a style, it doesn't get reapplied the same way it was saved. I wouldn't say it's random, but it's certainly not consistent with expectations. It looks like it might be based on the size of the object/layer it is being applied to. For instance, I saved this Bevel/Emboss effect with a Radius of 10 px. It shows pixels as the default measurement, and I chose a pixel radius (important because it does not show a percentage value by default, so it shouldn't apply a percentage value by default). When I apply this style in other places, it's all over the place. It's usually a
  12. After you save a style with a shadow and apply that style to another object, the shadow scale changes. This is very inconvenient Affinity Photo 1.6.5. 135 File and video attached Shadows.afphoto Shadows.mp4
  13. I am not sure if this is a bug or if I am doing something wrong. Copying a style from one element and pasting it to another always gives different results than the original style. Same thing happens when I "Create Style" and then assign it to the new element. Any ideas?
  14. Don't know if this is a bug or what. Trying to use the Paste FX but it doesn't paste the settings anywhere near correctly. Doing this with frame text layer that had a drop shadow effect, then tried to copy/paste the effect to a new frame text layer. However, the Radius and Offset changed from 7.4/4.8 to 803.4/521.1. The angle and opacity pasted fine, but obviously the drop shadow had to be manually corrected. Tried it several times with the same results, so not sure if there is some special way to do this, or if it just doesn't work.
