Aligned Objects Draw With Gaps

Recommended Posts

If I make any two straight-edged object and align their straight sides, Designer still shows (and outputs) a small gap between them.

I have a series of triangles with rectangles beneath them, making white pillars. Unless I overlap them, Designer outputs a faint grey line between the two objects, when I expect there to be no visible gap.

Hi @ffca,

Sorry for the delayed reply. 

This is not a bug. You don't have integer values for Position (X, Y) and Size (W, H). When you export in a raster format, those values fall in between full pixels, therefore you will have "lines". If you fix the values (Just round them up to the nearest integer value) you should be fine. 

Thanks,

Gabe.

Ah, so even when working on projects destined for print it may be a good idea to use "force pixel alignment"?

There’s no obvious reason to keep the rectangles and their respective triangles separate. If it were me, I’d overlap the shapes and Boolean add them.
