[APh] Changes to Embedded Documents are not reflected immediately

Recommended Posts

Steps to reproduce on Windows 10 16299.248 and Affinity Photo

  1. Create a new main document
  2. Create a new secondary document, save it somewhere
  3. Drop the just created secondary document into the main document to embed it
  4. Duplicate the embedded document in any way you prefer (Ctrl + J, Alt + dragging)
  5. Double click the last duplicated embedded document, change something
  6. Back in the main document only the document you double clicked changed
  7. To force the change on others duplicates you need to zoom in and out a bit

Hi LCamachoDesign


This may be dependent on your system. The second instance lags behind the on im editing but it does update without me having to cause a re-draw on the screen. I'll see if i can replicate this on other systems

This used to work instantaneously in 1.5. A client of mine says it works instantaneously in 1.6.3.

It might be my system, but it might also be something in 1.6.4, I'll see if I have time to replicate it on my Surface Pro (second computer, I'm having this issue on my desktop PC).
