Copy > Paste Fx Causes Rescaling of Drop Shadows

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is a "feature" or a bug. When I copy/paste layer styles between objects, it causes weird upscaling/downscaling of Drop Shadow/Outer Shadow offsets. The only thing I can think of is it is somehow tied to the height of the second two objects. It also works in reverse.

I attached a video to show what I mean.

Hi @Sean P 

I have the same problem with Inner glow, outer glow, etc... Everything with the pixel parameters on FX gives random pixel sizes from the original element copied (and I have "Scale with Object" unchecked)

The same goes for Styles. When I'm working on UI elements, I need consistency of FX and it would be nice when I apply a style to an object to keep the exact pixel values instead of random pixel scales.

Waiting for the fix for a long time.

Ditto. Found this post and it explained a lot of issues.

I gave up using Designer (even for hobby use) - a "professional" vector drawing program without actual vector features. Waiting for five years in vain is more than any company can ask for.

Maybe if Affinity Designer 2.0 gets real and advanced vector features I can it use. Until then... I am a customer, potential upgrader and an active observer with an opinion.
