Setting for size vs resolution priority pasting between documents

Recommended Posts

Today I learned that pasting elements between Designer documents with different resolution results on different object size. This is a normal behavior on bitmap software, like Photo or Photoshop, because they work with pure pixels and must adapt to the number of pixels the pasted image has upon the resolution, but is a complete hassle on vector apps like Designer, where the key is that you usually design on physical objet size, independently of resolution. This is specially hard when you are working with exact measures, like packaging or any technical illustration.

 

I suggest three possible solutions

 

A: Document or application setting to allow users to select their preference on copy pasting.

B: Let the app auto select the pasting behavior based on the measure unit for the documents. (Preference to resolution if pixels unit, or preference to real size if a measure unit is selected)

C: Special paste command for "paste preserving size"

 

Hope I'm not the only one finding this important on his workflow.

 

cheers!

Interestingly I learned the same thing today :)

At first I was a little confused but easily found a solution by resizing the objects.

 

I support all three of your suggestions. Thanks for bringing this up.
