New info about ctrl+click duplicating bug

Recommended Posts

I reported this bug in 2016, and tony said the solution:

...Tony (lead dev) and he wants to change it so that objects only duplicate when you drag them a reasonable distance as opposed to them duplicating after a certain delay.

I agreed with the solution.

Now that one year has passed, Affinity Designer has updated many versions, and many bugs have been fixed. But unfortunately, this duplication keeps occuring. Here are my experiences about this problem:

Normally ctrl+click is fine and does not produce duplication. Buy when The compute runs slowly, the AD file is complicated, the ctrl+click duplication is easy to occur.

I noticed that sometimes just clicking on an object in AD caused a slight offset. So the real bug is that in some cases, the mouse will offset slightly when clicking. It's more likely to happen when the computer is slow.
