Boolean Operations Divide.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
I know, it is nervy for you but what happens in the case of Boolean Operations Divide?
Since years this issue is standing and nothing happens in this case.

Please understand me right, i like the software, i like it very much to work with it and i like the new additions with hardware accelaration and the other improvments but in my opinion it is a NoGo for such a software that it needs for so long to improve or to fix this function which every graphic worker needs to create own shapes. And it can not be a solution to say "use an other software for this". I have read this in other threads.
An ohter thread in Mac Beta Forum, to see here:

is standig since 1. October without an answer. Is this issue be ignored in the meantime or is there a fix in the near future?


Have a nice day.
Ich wünsche einen schönen Tag.

But divide is implemented how you always dreamed?

I gave up using Designer - a "professional" vector drawing program without advanced or semi-advanced vector features. Customers 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 use it. Until then... I am a customer, a potential upgrader and an active observer with an opinion.

Further... give up and please hire a professional, educated UX (user experience designer), Serif. Professional software companies used them for decades now. You must too.

I like the Software, no Question, and i like it t work with it but the result of divide is more a nightmare than a dream.
Please try it with more than one overlapping Object. In my example there are 6 Circles which are overlapping at different Points and then have a look to top left how many Objects there are after divide. If i count right, there have to be 34 Objects, not more.
That is what i mean. If there are more overlapping Objects, this operation goes crazy.

I and much other Users often posted Videos and images for example and nothing happens.

I know it is a nightmare, @Uwe367, it was a joke 🙂

I gave up using Designer for most uses; mostly because of missing features but even the more basic work I tried to finish was sabotaged by the faulty divide.

No response here either? I fear the fix for this is such a major boolean re-write that they're pushing off a fix until they go to version 2 of the program.

The devs have said that they want to fix it, but for whatever reason something is hindering them from fixing it. Either it's too complicated to get solved in a short time frame or they don't know how yet.

I agree about it needing to be a high priority bug fix, though. They fixed some bugs with other booleans in 1.8, so not having Divide fixed yet feels pretty bad.

Let Serif do the explaining.

I suppose that it isn't simple matter of iterating through every possible combination of paired objects if the 2+ at the same time can cause the issue to appear

like: a-b, a-c, b-c, and then check for collision between the output and iterate from there.. 

 

Anyways, we got Contour which is awesome addition and big thanks to the dev team for adding that, but i'd also like to know any info regarding the boolean bugs.

Best,

V

Here's another observation in Beta 1.9.0.820 relating to the divide option demonstrating it's not working quite right!

The ellipses are not quite lined up correctly. The edges are not quite on the centres.

Are you saying the centres have to be aligned for divide to work properly? 😉

I think understand what you are saying as an explanation why the missing object is in a different position, but what I'm saying is the object should not be missing in the first place!

I've tried a similar divide exercise in two other graphics programs and do not get this happening either when the ellipses are aligned or not.

This is the kind of thing I would expect to end up with when I drag the divided shapes apart:
