Power Duplicate on rotated and resized shape produces unexpected result

Recommended Posts

Windows 10 Home 1909, Designer 1.8.3.641.

Watch the video to see what’s happening.
I duplicate the original Rectangle layer, then rotate and resize the duplicate, then use power duplicate a few times.
At the end I have a sheared object.
Is this what I should be expecting? It doesn’t happen every time so I’m wondering what I’m doing wrong when it happens.

That is weird, odder is that you show the shear happening in your Transform panel but I don't see that, it is always 0 degrees until I stop and rotate the object back to 0 degrees.

I would class this as a bug. Also I haven't been able to not get this happening but you say it is not always happening.

It is a bug indeed, it happens here on Windows, and as @Old Bruce mentioned, I haven't managed to not get this happening.

I'm gonna try on macOS later, since I don't have my MacBook with me at the moment.

My gut feeling is that we have more strange bugs on Windows then Mac, BUT, this is also happen on iPad version of Affinity Designer!

It’s heartening to know that it’s not just me.
I can get it to not happen by using a larger rotation, or by not resizing the layer, so what’s happening doesn’t seem consistent to me.
It would be nice to get some confirmation either way from the team that it was or wasn’t a bug. (Basically I don’t want to call it a bug until I know that I’m not just doing something wrong.)
