Grouping with Constraints Issue

Recommended Posts

windows 10 pro --- Affinity Designer version

This is happening in my current web design project but this is the simplest method i found to reproduce it. 

doing either of the below steps mutates or moves the objects.

1 - Grouping objects that have constraints and are nested in a parent which has been transformed.

2 - changing constraints on items in a constraints group which is nested in a parent.

Method 1

screen capture of issue

  1. make new layer
  2. place object (rectangle)
  3. deselect the constraints
  4. lock the constraints to top left and right only.
  5. resize the layer
  6. place two more object in that layer
  7. deselect inner resizing constrains
  8. constrain top and left only
  9. group the later two objects
  10. note that the objects are re-positioned on the document or hidden completely 

Method 2

Screen capture of the issue

  1. make new object
  2. create two more objects nested in first
  3. group the latter two
  4. change the groups constraints to top left and right only. (just selecting one side works too)
  5. select the two nested objects directly and change the constraints
  6. note that the objects are re-positioned and mutated.
