Somewhat Strange Artboard Issue

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

here’s something to reproduce for you:

  • Create a document, add an artboard of document size, add a shape to the artboard
  • Select the Artboard Tool, resize the artboard
  • Don’t deselect the artboard, but switch to the Move Tool
  • Resize the artboard with the Move Tool
  • Your shape will be resized together with the artboard!
  • Hmm. I don’t think I have seen this before

Now try this:

  • Use Undo, deselect the artboard, select it with the Move Tool by clicking the artboard label
  • Resize it with the Move Tool
  • Now the shape will not be resized with the artboard!
  • (Oops, I trimmed my video too aggressively at the end, but:) this is what I would expect

Am I just confused, or is that a bug?

Alex :)

There is an option (tick box), in the tool's context menu: Lock Children. It will either transfer artboard transforms or not to the contents of the artboard.

Thank you, I am very well aware of that tick box, but I didn’t pay attention, and I think you found the root of the issue. :)

The button is behaving in an erratic way! O.o

  • Select the Artboard Tool, resize an artboard
  • Don’t deselect the artboard, but switch to the Move Tool
  • Lock Children does not get immediately engaged!
  • Why? Is that intended? 
  • Deselect the artboard, reselect it with the Move Tool
  • Lock Children is engaged!

Please review this behaviour. It is pretty unexpected. At least to me.

Thank you, Alex
