Constraints group is added when I move a symbol inside a frame?

Recommended Posts

When I move a symbol inside an elliptical frame, a constraints group is added. The symbol then also changes its position as a result.

Any idea why this is happening? It's really annoying having to do the placement twice.

The constraints group also has a tendency to clip the symbol if it moves outside its range:

Hi @Intuos5,

Thanks for your report!

As far as I can tell, there is no reason this Symbol should become a constraints group (and consequently become detached) when adding to a Picture Frame object, simply it appears to be an oversight when these 2 layer types are interacting.

I will be logging this as a bug with our developers now, as I've been able to replicate with both regular and elliptical Picture Frames.

I hope this helps :)

Thanks for the further information - I had included in my report that when adding the Symbol to the Picture Frame it was instantly detached as a Symbol object, though I will update this to include that on the occasions where the symbol is retained initially, it is then lost when dragging the Symbol from this created Constraints Group :)
