Linked document layer settings lost when re-open main document


Recommended Posts

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Put Linked document (file type: .afdesign) to Main.afdesign;
  2. Change all Linked document layers' opacity to 50%;
  3. Save and close Main.afdesign;
  4. Re-open Main.afdesign;

Expected result:

  • Linked document layers' opacity value should be 50%;

Actual result:

  • All linked document layers' opacity value AUTO RESET to 100%;

HI @WaveF I've tried to recreate this on both macOS 10.12.6 & 11.4 and the linked document was still at 50% when reopened.

Is there a specific number of linked images you need? Or maybe a specific file type? I tried a PNG on one and a JPEG on the other.

Sorry, I forgot to mention file type of linked document, it's another .afdesign file, I use it with difference artboard setting as a component library.

@WaveF Sorry for the delay in replying. Could you upload your document here please so I could take a look? Then I can try and recreate the issue from scratch. 

Sorry :( I forgot upload the issue file, and now I can't find it, and can not reproduce the issue in new file....
