Designer 1.6 | 'Expand stroke' tool overly aggressive with rounded corners

Recommended Posts

A year has passed, Designer 1.7 is out, and the bug is still with us, nothing changed.

I opened the very same file I featured a year ago (you can download the original file right in my comment above, the one with the many previews, and test it for yourself), and expanded strokes. Left is the original, non-expanded icon. Blue is the result for expanding strokes in Designer 1.7. The red underneath is the expanded stroke result in Designer 1.6

So... I'll stick to Figma for icon design and overall UI design then, while patiently waiting another year for 1.8 to make Designer great again...

Yes same problem for me. Icon development for clean svg Icons is nearly impossible for me. So the whole program is useless for me. Still forced to stay with AI...

I don’t have the exact number in the To-Do list of Matt Priestley (the Developer that is going to address this issue), but as stated in public, he will look into it in the following months.

Best regards!

I was just about to ask around if 1.7 saw any improvements in this regard but I guess that’d be a resounding ”no.”

Sad state of affairs.

It is indeed a 'no'
