No doubt again something simple, again probably a simple fix, but I've already conceded my infant level AD knowledge - help please.

 

How do y'all explain the following behavior upon my reducing the image size in AD, on a 3 month old MacBook Pro running AD 1.5? I've attached 4 thumbnails below to help illustrate.

 

I drag a me-made asset (that stupid black tote bag) onto a photographic image of Bigfoot in an attempt create a crude image of him carrying a black tote bag with a logo on it. Obviously, the scale of the tote is way too large so I begin to reduce it's size. I used both the Transform Panel (W+H) as well as constraining via Shift/Drag. In both cases, the smaller I reduce, the more I see proportional changes in certain layers in the logo (which are grouped). I did NOT have the 'Loch Children' box ticked - would this have bearing on the effect I'm getting?

 

Most obvious IMO is the change in the curvature around the black 'C'...just saying.

 

Thanks for any help! (I love playing with this program - can't wait 'til i have a better grasp of it all)

-Christo

Hi Christovw66,

 

This issue certainly looks odd!

 

Please could you provide a copy of the file in question so that I may look into this further for you?

Christo, from what I can tell, the problem is the white curve that is the parent of the spindle hole. I believe you used the Corner tool to set its corner radii to 3 mm, so as you scale down the tote2 layer, the white curve maintains as best as it can those 3 mm corner radii, turning it progressively into a more circular shape. (In other words, the radii do not scale.)

 

One way to fix this is to select it with the Corner tool & click "Bake Corners," which 'bakes' the shape into nodes that will scale proportionally. Perhaps easier, or at least to preserve edibility, would be to use a Rounded Rectangle for that shape.
