Cropped images within multiple groups misplaced when pasted

Recommended Posts

I discovered a problem today with misplaced cropped images when pasted. It took me a while to work out what was happening and I'm not sure I could reproduce it reliably.

I had prepared a small group which had some text blocks and images one of which was cropped. I was copying this group and pasting it to make multiples (they are labels I'm going to cut up after printing). I got fed up with pasting them singly so selected several groups at once to paste in bulk. I then realised the cropped image within the pasted groups were not only badly misplaced but had lost the cropping. This only happened with the multi group select, copy and paste - images in the single copy of the group were ok.

It happened twice on two different documents (different labels) so do think it's a bug.

Hi Chris,

It's not that easy to reproduce. I've attached a file which has a table and a group in each of the top two rows. Then:

I clicked on the lower group in the page to select it and then shift+click to select the top one, i.e. selected the two groups.

I then did CMD-C CMD-V which pasted over the top

I then dragged the two new groups down the page - AND TO THE RIGHT (this seems to trigger the bug)

The images within the groups and the original groups then move all over the place. I've attached a screenshot.

It feels like it's related to cropped images (which this one is) as I've done this with lots of other images with no ill effects.

Hi JC_ngandI

You are right it is not easy to reproduce as I have not been able to get it yet but looking at the layers this will most likely have something to do with the 2 symbols within the group. I shall keep trying to replicate this though
