Paste effects - "random" values bug

Recommended Posts

It seems that in both AD and AP is the same bug when copy/pasting layer effects: the fx parameters seem to somehow reflect target layer size (be it a shape or a pixel layer). So when for example an outer shadow of 22px blur, 30px distance is pasted onto a different layer, it gets pasted with 102,4px blur and 0px distance...


I haven't tried this with other effects.


Is this a bug or is there any "logic" behind this that I can't see?

Hi guys,

This has been logged but it doesn't always mean it makes it into beta's or release builds. I will definitely poke the bug report as it is being raised often enough for concern. 

Hi Chris,

I hope somebody is about to look at it soon, it has been 5 years and the problem is still there.

I have to manually check all the effects after pasting.

I still love Affinity software and I consider many functions designed in really smart way...this is not one of them however.
