Hi @Przemek,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Thank you for your feedback. I will pass it to Ben for consideration.
Meanwhile, I don't know if you are already aware, but if you select each rotated object and press Add (boolean operation) - to add it to itself - it resets/fixes the rotation issue (you can set up a shortcut for this to speed it up a little bit). You can also select multiple rotated objects (those that use the same fill/attributes) and Add them all together than Divide (boolean operation), to fix the issue to more than one object at once (you can do it for objects with different fills but they will end up all with the same fill after the Add operation so you have to set the fills again).

Hi @MEB,

Thanks for the welcome and your answer+hint. I am aware of that. The only thing is that this way the object is turned to curves. I once did it when I was trying out a curved corners bar chart. As you might expect all my rounded corners got baked and once the Client and I rejected this idea, I had to redo the entire chart from scratch. At that stage I didn't have charts to copy so I already spend some time designing the rejected chart.

Looking forward to the latest update and keeping my fingers crossed about the Base Box overwrite ;)

Come to this late, not digested the whole thread so apologies. This stumped me because of the way it displayed and I couldn't see the rotation thingie (what are they called?).

As someone else has already requested above, I'd like to add to the request. That the element retains a memory of which it has been last set to. The default Base Box OR the Regular Bounds. Thank you.

If I set this element to the Regular Box, then deselect it.
Uh-ho, need to tweak it a bit more..
Doh, not: 1) select > 2) rotate...
But: 1) select > 2) toggle (sorry 'cycle') selection box > 3) now rotate...
Gets really tedious really quickly when trying to make fine aesthetic adjustments... which is kind of my job 😋 .

And when would I ever want to use Base Box with this element? (Yes, I know I created this by using the node tool on it at some point - this illustrates why people are requesting the ability to reset the Base Box)

(Publisher btw, though it might look like the kind of work you'd do in Designer).

Hope this helps make things really-really clear.

 

As others have said, the more I use these app the more I think they're a great start. Some fundamentals seem weird, but hopeful they'll be sorted in time. It's all workable right now.

and tell me how can I reset the bounding box in one of the elements...

If you don't mind it being converted to Curves, select it and click the Add button on the Toolbar, or Layer > Geometry > Add from the menu.

That worked! Thank you Walt! 

I only don't quite understand why some random objects have different bounding boxes then the others and what causes it... Any thoughts? Cheers!

You're welcome.

Without watching you create that document, sorry, no ideas on that.
