Affinity Designer constraints-group-clipping bug

Recommended Posts

Hi daniele_orlando, welcome to the Affinity Forums :)
Are you able to attach the file used in the screenshot please? What have you done between the two screenshots that has caused it to get displaced?

Hi dear Sean. Thanks for your reply.


Attached there is the file of the example.

⌘ + ⇧ + g:  ungroups a Constraints Group making items visible

⌘ + g:  should create a Group, instead it creates a Constrains Group displacing and clipping the items.


The issue is due to the Rectangle Shape. Removing it the text is grouped as a regular Group.

Hi daniele_orlando,

The software is correctly putting them in Constraints groups, because the text objects have modified constraints options - compare the Constraints Panel with a piece of text to one of the rectangle objects. Observe the white lines in the middle of the box are not highlighted. Turning these back on, will allow you to group the object without it being turned into a Constraints Group.

With that said however, the objects shouldn't be moving to where they are, so I will get it passed on to development.
