Hello,

I have a problem with perfect snapping with an isometric grid.
As you can see in the first picture, it doesnt snap perfectly.
My settings are in pictures 2 and 3. It also doesnt work with the option "force pixel alignment" toggled off 😞

 

Can anybody help me please?

 

Greetings

Fabian

Leave ‘Force pixel alignment’ enabled, but disable ‘Move by whole pixels’. The latter takes precedence when enabled.

I’m sorry to hear that, Fabian. Perhaps you could share a misbehaving document so I can test it on my iPad (and other iPad users can test it, too).

I found that to get it to work I needed to have Move by whole pixels on.

I can confirm that it isn’t snapping for me when I have only ‘Snap to grid’ enabled. ‘Force pixel alignment’ seems to mess things up even more (presumably because it’s keeping the edges of the shape away from grid lines that aren’t aligned to pixel boundaries).

if you look really close, than you can see that isnt snapped perfectly.

Yes, I have to agree. Either snapping is not working or the grid display is still off when zoomed.

The fix list for 1.84 states: Fix for incorrect rendering of grids past certain zoom levels??

The renderings of the grid in some zoom levels are still incorrect :/

Hi incher91,

Unfortunately this is still a known issue on iPad when attempting to snap to non-square grids. I'll get the issue bumped with development and pass your comments over.

Hi Sean, 

New affinity user here. Maybe it’s my OCD but is there a workaround to make precise isometric designs? I’ve been trying to follow some tutorials but now that I realize that the points do not exactly align with the grid I am hesitant to work on more isometric work. Will I have to manually align each point when I make isometric elements?

I think mods have previously said the alignment doesn’t move, just that the grid is not drawn properly when zoomed, making it look like it is no longer aligned. Hopefully they can confirm this.

Do you mean it's a bug with the grid zoom? And not the alignment snapping?

I believe so but mods would need to confirm.

Please confirm this mods! My OCD is killing me and it's making me very hesitant to work on any isometric design work 

I found this post by DanC confirming Grid snapping is mathematical function, (invisible grid), the visible grid is overlaid (and has position issue when zoomed). Snapping grid is however , unaffected.🙂

Seems to be the case though at 200% it still looks aligned  to my (tired) eyes.

 Serif fixed the standard grid in this release so hopefully a fix for isometric won’t be too far off. 🙂
