Designer 1.7.0 - Stroke bug on shape snapped on isometric grid

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Want to report a little issue I got.

If I am freely create a shape with the Pen tool, when it's closed I can manipulate the stroke Align to center, inside or outside.

When I am activating an isometric grid with full snap ON (Force pixel align, whole pixel and snapping ... all checked), and create my diamond shape based on grid intersects, when the shape its closed, I cannot change the stroke alignment, it always remains in Center mode, whatever I try.

Note: It works as intended when creating the same way but with Automatic grid.

Hi Artmendel and welcome to the forum.

Your diamond isn't actually a closed shape.

  • Drag the start node and you will find it moves away leaving a gap.
  • Drag it back over the end node (with the node tool) and the shape should close.

Only closed shapes support stroke inside or outside, strokes on open shapes are always centered.

Oh I see, so the shape is snapped but not close on the isometric grid then, making this to happens.

So we have to be aware of this to manually check and close em if needed.

I'm not sure why your shape didn't close, just that this was the source of the issue :)

Yeah, and thanks for that Aammppaa, ;)

So the bug is more on the auto-closing shapes when snapped builded on isometric grid.

Hope that will help to fix it in a way or another.

I am not sure that there is a bug here.

How did you close your shape?

I have tried every method I know, and so long as I am reasonable careful the shape always closes correctly.

It is very specific to the Creation with the isometric grid ON and snapping turned ON.

When creating a shape this way, when i am clicking on the last point, the shape not closing, just fake joining points.

I have tried all other way and they works as intended but this one fail anytime for me.

If I am creating in this conditions BUT not snap my points on the grid during the creation process, I can close it normally.

Hi Artmendel,

I've just tried this myself and I'm unable to reproduce it. I presume you also have 'Snap To Grid' enabled in your snapping options? See attached video - when the shape is closed you see the stroke change to Inner Aligned.

EDIT: Could you try without Force Pixel Alignment and Whole Pixel Snapping enabled and see if that makes it work?

Hey Sean,

Thanks for your reply.

The problem seems to be fixed in 1.7.1, I can now use the Isometric grid with snap on as intended and the shape is perfectly closing at the end, YAY ! :D
