New image has entirely too many handles

Recommended Posts

Me after inserting an image: "Huh, I wonder why they chose a thick solid blue as the border when you're editing the wrap outline."

Me after zooming in: "Oh. Oh no."

Interestingly, this does not happen to me with every image, but it does happen reliably with specific image files. I've attached not only screen shots of what this looks like in situ, but also the original file that gave me trouble. Maybe there's something weird about it?

Thanks!

I'm guessing it is a curve the image uses for clipping, which the originating app has exported as short line segments. If you find the object in the Layers panel, you may be able to delete the clip there.

I can find the image in the layers panel, but right-clicking on it or using the cog icon doesn't give me anything about clipping, and there don't seem to be any relevant menu items with "clip" in them.

Generally in Affinity curves clip objects that are nested inside them (that is, below and indented) in the Layers panel. It's such a ubiquitous thing that it doesn't get a menu item.

Hmm. Sorry, I still can't find what you're talking about. I expanded the image in the Layers panel, and I see a "Group" item that has an "Image" inside it, but nothing else. It doesn't matter which of those items I have selected when I click "Edit Wrap Outline", I still get a thousand handles.

Nothing with the words curve, clip, or object.

What happens if you ungroup the group? ears.gif

I can't reproduce the problem with the image in your message, but because the forum is showing it inline I suspect what I downloaded isn't the same as what you uploaded. If you could upload the Publisher document I could have a look at that.

@Dave Harris I downloaded the image from the original post, and had the exact same result, thousands of nodes in the wrap frame.

Also, the wrap frame did not show up as a layer in the layers panel.

I just get the image without the enclosing group. There are still a bajillion handles when I edit its wrap outline.

@MEB seems to be correct - re-exporting the PNG with transparency turned off is a workaround for this bug.
