Hi team, 

Letting you know when I open documents that were created in Designer (iPad Pro), my documents are all heavily pixelated in Photo. I can work with the documents in Photo as usual otherwise. I make changes and save it in Photo. When the documents are opened in Designer again (iPad), they appear perfectly sharp with the changes as well. 

Attached is an example.792DC7CD-7FB2-4A93-9A59-0FCDA03FA744.thumb.png.04c65e63fe8b6658f0e5435eaf2a88f3.png

 

At this zoom level, the banner should be perfectly sharp to the naked eye, even up close. The 50% bubble May show the pixelation most clearly. Compare the banner to Photo’s toolbar icons. Tried 2 other Designer documents in Photo, and the same thing happens.

I believe that Designer defaults to showing a vector view of projects (and allows you to see a pixel view), but Photo always displays in pixel mode. At least, that's what I've seen on the desktop versions.

Perhaps that's what you're seeing, too? If the iPad version of Designer supports the View Mode function, you might try pixel mode, or split mode, and see if that shows the same effect you get in Photo.

Hi Walt,

Good points. In Designer (iPad Pro), the main and split view modes work normally, including pixel split mode. Before v1.7, Photo had no pixelation when opening a Designer vector mode document. Designer documents used to appear in Photo, as they do in Designer. The pixelation in Photo has only happened in v1.7. 

Looking into more settings after work, to see if Photo has a bug since v1.7, or no longer supports vector mode by default.

The same pixelation occurs in 1.7.1 beta, so might be a setting change or simply not fixed yet.
