  1. Hey! I am not sure this is a bug or this is by design but for me it seems to be an inconsistency. See the animation. If you hide an instance of a symbol all others get hidden too. I don't expect this to happen because if you delete an instance of a symbol all the others don't get deleted. Should be the same with hiding in my opinion. Sometimes I have to hide only a single or several instances of a symbol but I can't do it and have to delete it instead... Maybe this could be changed in future? All the best, Chris
  2. Affinity Designer Windows 10 Reproduced with Hardware Acceleration enabled & disabled I'm new to Affinity Designer, so I don't know if this is new behavior or not. I've notice two similar bugs that I assume are related. They involve unchecking text layers in a copy of a symbol, then re-checking that layer in the original symbol. There seem to be two different manifestations of this bug I'll call Scenario 1 and Scenario 2. The component doesn't show back up on the copy The component shows up in the interface, but gets cut off during export I've included two Affinity Designer documents below to demonstrate the behavior, or you can re-create the behavior from scratch using the steps below. While I'm using the export preview for simplicity, the same behavior is present in exported PNG files as well. Scenario 1: Make a new document (A6) Using the Artistic Text Tool, type a few words Select the text layer in the Layers panel Symbols --> Create Drag a new copy of the symbol to the page ===== OR OPEN Scenario_1.afdesign to skip to this part ===== In the Layers panel, expand the COPY of the symbol Uncheck the text layer of the copy (It disappears from BOTH instances of the symbol) Make sure the COPY's text layer isn't selected Expand the ORIGINAL symbol Check the text layer of the original symbol EXPECTED: The text is visible in both copies ACTUAL: The text is visible in the original, and is checked in the copy in the Layers panel, but is not actually visible in the copy If you uncheck/recheck the text in the copy it shows back up Also, if the copy's text layer is selected when you check the original's text layer, it shows back up Before: After: Scenario 2: Make a new document (A6) Using the rectangle tool, make a rectangle approximately 10mm by 10mm, with a color fill Select the Artistic Text Tool, Centered, 12pt Roughly centered underneath the rectangle, type "This will disappear" Group the rectangle and text together Make another rectangle slightly larger than the group with a different fill color In the Layers panel, drag the group to be a child of this new rectangle Select the top-level rectangle Symbols --> Create Drag a new copy of the symbol onto the page ===== OR OPEN Scenario_2.afdesign to skip the above steps ===== Expand the COPY of the symbol in the layers panel to uncheck the text layer Make sure the COPY's text layer isn't selected Expand the ORIGINAL symbol in the layers panel to CHECK the text layer File --> Export --> Preview EXPECTED: The text is visible in both copies ACTUAL: The text shows up in the document, however in the export/preview the text is partially cut off If you uncheck/recheck the text in the copy it exports correctly Before: After: Scenario_1.afdesign Scenario_2.afdesign
  3. Hello, I'm really enjoying Affinity Designer so far. There are so many convenient features to help make vector illustration more fun and efficient. I recently discovered symbol bugs on Affinity Designer for Windows PC. The bugs never occurred before the last AD software update. After duplicating a symbol, I'm unable to arrange the symbols independently using the 'Move to Back' function. The duplicated symbols move together, even when only one is selected, while using the 'Move to Back' function. I also can't disable visibility without them all being turned on or off simultaneously. A macOS user recently had a similar problem, from this thread:
  4. Ist es ein Fehler, daß sich Symbolebenen nicht einzeln Ausblenden lassen, oder ist das so gewollt? sybolobjekte-ausblenden.mp4 sybolobjekte-ausblenden.mp4
  5. Seems 1.9 have some new bugs. One of them is a glitch on hiding object/layer where it seems to affect multiple object/layer that's not selected even on different artboard. Here's a sample vid of the bug There are lots of weird stuff as well like mask within a group in symbol sometimes jumps across the artboard when the symbol is inserted to other artboard or one of the object inside it is moved (I tried to replicate it in this video at 0:18 mark but it's not happening, so just ignore this part) I'm gonna jump out of this 1.9 ship and go back to 1.8, hopefully other people can post proof of the other bug. I have some deadlines and not gonna deal with this bug. Also my system is Lenovo Y700-15isk, Win 10, Intel i7 6700HQ, GTX 970M, 16GB RAM. Update from latest 1.8.5 to 1.9 (not clean install). Thanks lads Bug.avi
