Stroke value on the context toolbar UI bug


Recommended Posts

Looks like the line width field is too small to accommodate all the numbers.
 
I've also noticed that it’s not possible to enter a value more than 100pt in the context tool bar when using the pencil tool. It is however, possible to override this 100pt limit by entering a larger value in the stroke panel.
 
1) select pencil tool
2) draw a 1pt line and whilst line still selected
3) enter a line width value larger than 100pt in the context toolbar, for example 200pt
4) notice it reverts to 100pt
5) it's not possible to drag the width slider beyond 100pt (see screenshot)

Unfortunately I'm unable to replicate your issue Jonopen in build 17, it seems to behave fine for me

 

 

At least it's just me then :D

 

If it helps, I've attached a short video capture of the problem as it occurs for me (also in build 17).

Hi Jonopen,

What are the document properties for the tin can man file in your video? I am sort of seeing your issue but with an A4 and A3 document mine goes to a maximum of 283.5pt (which means I can't see the slider issue you are having as well).

Would if be possible for you to attach your 'tin can man' file?

 

Thanks!

Hi Sean, file attached (warts 'n' all).

 

I can however replicate the same behaviour with all existing and new files.

 

With regard to the slider, sometimes the size indicator is actually correct in the sense that it is positioned at the far right when it first shows 100pt, but once it has been dragged to the left, it can no longer be dragged to the right beyond the point shown in the video clip. 

 

Not sure if it's relevant, but I have Windows scaling set to 125%, but the all system fonts are set to the default size.

Thanks for that Jon!

I've been able to reproduce the issue in a new SVGA 800x600 72dpi file. I was also able to replicate the slider issue how you mentioned it the second time around (initially far right, but sticks to the middle once dragged).

I'll get this reported.

Thanks Dadesign,

I've reproduced this - i'll get it reported to development. 

 

EDIT: It seems Chris did report it, however it appears the fix only came through for the Mac version. I've reported it to the Windows development team now so should hopefully get fixed soon! :)
