Linked layers out of sync if Parent of Child has ever moved

Recommended Posts

How’s that for a catchy title?

Photo 2 — 2.1.0 , happens on iPad or Mac

Transforming of linked layers is out of sync if one of the linked layers is clipped inside a layer that has moved.

Attached is an .afphoto file.


In case it helps, the process:

1. Paint a shape. Select and move it somewhere else onscreen.

2. On a separate layer, paint another shape. Place it behind the shape in step one, and so they partly overlap. Duplicate this second shape.

3. Clip one of the duplicates into the shape from step one. Set its blend mode to multiply, to visually distinguish it from the unclipped copy.

4. Link the shapes from step two, but only link the Transform.

5. Select and move either linked layer. They move in sync. Now rotate, and see they rotate out of sync.
