AD: Magnetic tool works not correctly


Recommended Posts

Hi,

as you can see designing on isometric grid produces always "hard edges":

This is because the magnetic tool doesn't put the objects really on the grid, especially on the x-axis:

No matter how you move the selected object - it's mostly not on an integer pixel X position. This leads to all those edges where the background is shown etc.

Here are my settings for the grid and the magnetic tool (the project file is also attached):

Actually it is geometry. Absolutely nothing you can do about it.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
