Add to create new Object from two existing objects

Recommended Posts


I drew two rectangles with roundet corners (1) and then I used the add tool (2) to put them together. Waht I got is a new form (3) but I aspected it a little bit different (4).

Please take a look to the attached screenshots.

I think it's a mistake on my part, but I found no way to make it work. I've changed the two objects into curves but it doesn't work then.

Thank you for your help.

Just tried it and got the same result.

It only seems to happen with rounded rectangles, not normal ones.

If you start with a normal rectangle and give it rounded corners, it seems to work as expected.

 This must be yet another bug!🙁

When I move the verticale rectagle up (not the layer - its allready on top but from it's position) so that is positioned from the middle of the horizontal rectangel upwards, then it worked. When I opened a new drawing and drew the example new it worked with the old positions.... crazy...

@RainerH I'd strongly recommend that you search the forum before posting.

This Boolean bug has been reported many many (many) times already - and has been fixed in the latest Beta versions.

You can either wait until the fix is released as a retail version, or grab the beta now from: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/33-designer-beta-on-windows/

Or for a quick fix: rotate both shapes together to an arbitrary angle (try 15 degrees) then add, and finally rotate back to zero.
