Bug with stroke and rounded corners

Recommended Posts

Shape strokes anialiasing is terrible and buggy. There is even a gaps between stroke and fill.

Also setting stroke to the "center" is not an option for transparent shapes

This makes your product completely unusable by any UI designer. And i'd like to ask an urgent hotfix or refund.

Having the same issue (since the 1.6 update)

Thought that version 1.6.1 would have fixed it, but it's still there.

 

Made a screenshot of two circles (red and blue)

Red circle is below and was "outlined" from an ellipse shape.

The blue circle is still the perfect ellipse shape.

The difference is visible.

Hi artfabrique

 

This is a known issue and unfortunately an artefact of the rendering process. It is an issue that is still open in our database.

 

Thanks

And when it will be fixed?For us, it's a high-priority bug which makes your product unusable.

Unfortunately we don't give estimates for fixes. Just keep an eye on the beta forums for the latest builds that are made available ahead of official patches.

Hi there! Any progress on this?

By the way maybe its a good idea to organize some public bug-tracker? GitHub for example. There are already plenty of repositories with extensions and utilities for your product.

It's very unlikely that any commercial product would have a public bug list.

This approach (encapsulated, closed) does not work in 2018 for any type of software, from my perspective.

When you build a pipeline and automate some things you have to know all known bugs and know workarounds till they are fixed.

For example, we a gamedev company and we build content-heavy social and mobile games. Hundreds of graphical assets done monthly by a big distributed team. Our assets export and integration is continuous and automated. If something breaks we need to know "what and where" to be able to perform a workaround and educate our employees about that immediately.

 

Even Adobe got it :)))

Yes, your company needs a bug tracking system. But it does not need to be public for your team members and other employees to do their jobs.

Yes, that's certainly public. But is it really Adobe's bug tracker, that their teams use as their primary source of information? I doubt it. I suspect it has only the bug reports found by the customers, just as this one at Serif has. And except for being a bit more organized than the Affinity forums, that Adobe forum (from a quick look) seems quite similar to this one.

But perhaps I misunderstood you. if all you were asking for was more organization of the publicly reported bugs, so they were easier for us (the public) to find, that seems feasible. What does not seem feasible, to me, for a commercial product, is a public bug database containing all the information about all the bugs known to the company.

Interesting list of projects on there.

 

We do have a bug tracker, it's just not public. 

When a customer reports a bug on the forum, the dev, QA or support team read it, try to reproduce it (and coordinate with the customer if they can't), and then log it internally.

A lot of the bug reports we have contain references to code, or other IP that we don't want to share.

I agree with artfabrique 100%. This is absolutely unacceptable and frankly, quite embarrassing, along with all the other embarrassing issues with AD currently. Like typing in absolute radius value of corner bevels for a 4"x2" rounded corner label with 1/8" radius (.125"). These values are not accurate in the slightest and when sent to printer even though typed in ".125 for my corner radius (because that's what the label template calls for) the corners NEVER line up, which renders AD a completely useless tool for printing labels, or just the printing pipeline in general! Good heavens AD, stop championing yourself as an AI replacement or even a bonafide serious designer tool for anyone really working in the industry!
