[AP] Macro issues with Transform step

Recommended Posts

This is so bizarre I am not sure if it is a bug or something wrong with my software, but I have reset the macros & I still get the same problems.

 

The basic issue is the values in the transform macro step keep changing. Sometimes this is just cosmetic -- it does not change how the macro executes the transform -- but other times it does. Since this is erratic & hard to explain, I hope the attachments will make clearer what is happening.

 

This is the macro I am testing with & what the transform values look like initially vs. after either playing the macro in the Macro tab or saving it back to the library & then opening it for editing (whether or not I play it).

This is what the test file looks like before playing the macro:

After playing the macro for the first time, the test file looks like this:

If I play the macro again (after undoing the changes the macro makes) I get this:

Note that the offsets change, the shear is applied on the second run, & pretty much nothing is as I would expect from the original macro as created.

 

Also attached is the test file & the exported afmacro file, zipped because (kind of absurdly) apparently we are not permitted to upload .afmacro files.

I forgot to mention that I did not want the transform to shear anything but whenever I set a non-zero rotation in that (or any other) transform step, the shear value changes to some non-zero value & even if I change it back to zero in the popup it reverts to that value after I close the popup.

 

In the first 'after' screenshot, you can (I hope) see that the shear did not actually occur, but in the second one it did. So this appears to sometimes be just a cosmetic problem & other times not.
