Hi. I found when I copy layer effects from one object to another, the effects will resize. Is there any way I can persist the effects parameters? Thanks!


This is what I did to test:

  1. draw a 200x200 rectangle
  2. apply an outline effect to it with radius of 20px
  3. copy the rectangle
  4. draw a 100x100 rectangle
  5. edit → paste fx
  6. the 100x100 rectangle will have an outline effect with 10px radius

This is great software but I hope there will be a fix or a change in preferences to lock FX size soon. This has caused me a great deal of re-work but I do love AF Design!

Hi hydrowing,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

No, there's no way to keep them. This is a known bug that's already logged to be looked at.

Thanks for your feedback.


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.
