AD: grouping objects moves them

Recommended Posts




Just noticed something in Designer 1.5.1 that I haven't come across before. 


Just started working on an idea and wanted to group some of the balloons in the screenshots attached. Selecting them and then CMD-G to group them makes them move position.


Is this normal [new] behaviour and have I missed a new setting or a bug?

And a quick follow up. 


I thought, maybe it's something with the new constraints, you never know.



The first screenshot is with the constraints as default. The second screenshot is what happens to my objects after clicking one of the arrows on the constraints panel.


Surely that's not right?

Just thought I'll follow this one up.


Left my computer for a bit which went to sleep. Logged in again, AD was still open with the file and tried exactly the same as above again, both the grouping and constraints and it didn't happen.


Quit out of AD, tried it again in the same file, but again all work as expected now.


So not sure if it was maybe just a graphical glitch.

This for me is a repeatable issue now.

I think what does it for me is where the objects are in the layer[s panel]
I've attached two screenshots from my layer panel.


The problem occurs when the two layers I'm grouping are not on the same level in the layers panel. The objects will shift position when grouped just like the balloons above.


When I move the layers on the same level and group them, all works fine and they get grouped with no issues.


It doesn't matter if I select the object in the layers panels or make the selection on the artboard directly. I'm working with a different file than the one above now.
