I've reported this issue to the Twitter team and they have asked me to post this here.

Having created an illustration I selected one of the objects to check the size. For some reason I just decided to I click on the X and Y values in the Transform Panel and press 'Enter' and as I did this I noticed that the object moved ever so slightly. The same happens with Height and Width respectively. It's as though the values in the Transform Panel boxes don't match the size of the object on-screen. This happens in new documents too and isn't just on the illustration document. It happens in whatever unit of measurement I have the document set to and can be seen more clearly when zoomed in. Perhaps there's a tolerance between each digit in relation to the preview on-screen?

Apple iMac 21.5-inch
macOS Catalina 10.15.1
Affinity Designer 1.7.3

Document set to A3 Landscape CMYK with Create Artboard turned on

  1. Create a rectangle
  2. Click on the rectangle
  3. Go to the transform panel and observe the values shown
  4. Click on each of the values but don't change them and simply press 'Enter'
  5. If it behaves like mine you should be able to see the rectangle change ever so slightly

Attached is a quick recording of this happening. After clicking on the values in the Transform Panel boxes, I simply press 'Enter' on the keyboard and the object changes as shown.

This doesn't sound like much of a problem but when working on intricate illustrations with lots of detail, the slightest unintended movement or alteration can mess things up. Is this a bug or simply a programmed behaviour that I just need to get used to?

Hope that helps!

Typing error. 'Triangle' changed to 'Rectangle'
