I have seen the same comments in the Designer Bugs forum: the boolean operation are broken in Publisher 1.8, at least for shapes.

Check out the attached video. First I combined 2 shapes, which seems OK, but when I subtract, XOR or divide, the shape breaks and straight edges become curves. It is the same when I convert the shapes to curves before the operation. However, when I create shapes with the pen tool I have not seen the same problems.

I've tried these steps with the current 1.8.1 version and I have the same strange bug. If you move the first united to rectangle, then the 3 elements are unified as expected. A bit scary though, especially for more complex form because the workaround mentionned is not a workaround but a way to reproduce the issue.


Thanks for fixing this quickly.

I tried it with exactly the same shapes (although I'm not sure if I had the same Z-axis hierarchy...) I can't reproduce it... for me it works. I'm on Mojave, fwiw.

edit: It only shows, if you use a circle (mine had an ellipse)

So now I CAN reproduce it.
