Insert Artboard based on Selection broken

Recommended Posts

The latest beta 1.8.0.480 seems that have the artboard creation based on the selection broken.

1. Open the attached file containing a group of two rectangles.

2. Select the Artboard tool and select "Selection" from the size list.

3. Click Insert Artboard.

The artboard is created but not propery cropped around the bounding box of the group. If the rectangles are ungrouped, the relative positions of the rectangles are not retained, either. And if the operation is tried to be undone, the results are more or less absurd. (The artboard will have the correct size only if the selected group is positioned at top left, but the Undo problem is still there.)

In the release version there does not seem to exist similar problems.

Interesting set of bugs.

However, you don't even need the group. Just make a new document, create 1 rectangle, choose the Artboard Tool, set the size to Selection, and click Insert Artboard. The new artboard is completel offset from the rectangle.

Speaking of updates: Was wondering how often is the Windows version of Affinity Designer updated? I have 1.7.3.481 from the Microsoft Windows App Store & noticed that there's a version 1.8.0.480 but it's in beta, how long will it be in beta before the stable release?

1.8 will be in beta until Serif considers it ready for a stable release. There may be 1, 2, or more additional 1.8 beta releases before that happens, but there's no good way to guess.

To get a rough idea of how often it has been updated you can look at this post which will provide links to the prior release notes back to 1.6.0, but the pace of development and release of new stable releases is uneven.

You can install the 1.8 beta alongside your 1.7.3 stable release if you want to. They won't interfere with each other, but any files you update or create in 1.8 won't be usable in 1.7, and you probably shouldn't try to use the 1.8 beta for production work, only testing
