new document presets show inaccurate page dimensions on the left list panel


Recommended Posts

I was unable to replicate this in Designer 2.5.2 on Windows.

My attached image shows the result of:

  • selecting the existing “Arch A” preset;
  • changing the units to Millimetres;
  • changing the dimensions to Width = 279.4 and Height = 215.9;
  • saving the new preset under the name “testing”.

If you can supply a reproducible workflow which exhibits the reported behaviour then people can look into it.

Strangely I can only replicate this on Mac, not on Windows. This only happens (for me at least) when changing the user units from one to six (or another value other than one decimal place) and only when initially creating the document...

For me, once the user unit decimal places are changed this is instantly reflected in the New Document dialog on Windows. The values don't update on Mac until you select another preset so on Mac it is effectively a screen redraw issue...

Note: This also assumes that the original preset actually has dimensions set (in this example) to six decimal places...

@Lee DYes, I set the decimal place to 6. I found it having no display problem for the decimal place set to 1–4, but only 5 or 6.

On Windows, the number of decimal places shown is consistent between the Preset and the Width and Height fields but Windows only shows one decimal place when set to either 1, 2, 3 or 4 decimal places but it shows 5 and 6 decimal places correctly...
