When try to make a group with an image and a text box or 2 different text boxes, the text in the boxes loses all the format, such as size, leading, etc. The only solution I found is to convert a copy of the text into curves in order to make the group. Is annoying

Sounds like this...

 


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

The first image is the text editable, the second one is the text grouped with the other elements, and the third one is the text converted in curves and then grouped with the other elements of the illustration

I can also confirm the grouping text issue. When grouping text, the text boxes disappears. The only solutions that I got to work was to either create an empty layer and group it, then move the text into that group or either convert the text to curves and group it that way.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums :) 

To All readers

We have made fixes/improvements to this area (Text in scaled text frame could increase in size when grouped) of the program in the latest customer beta. If you would like to try these changes the beta software is available in the forum posts listed below.

The latest beta builds are downloadable from links at the top of each of these beta forum posts.

These betas install parallel, next to the release version (they do not overwrite your release) and so the fixes can be tried in the beta without affecting your normal workflow in the release version.

Once these programs have been through a full beta process the change will be released in a future free 1.9.1 update/patch to all customers.
