Hi NBG :)

As the object is a quick shape that has been Rotated and Sheared the nodes cannot remain exactly pixel aligned. We recommend using the Pen tool and snapping to a pixel grid to ensure the nodes remain aligned, I hope this helps!

Hi Dan!

You mean drawing a shape with the Pen tool OR fix a node of the existing quick shape?

I've drawed three shapes with the Pen tool and they snap into the grid perfectly but the X (and now W too!) are not integers:

Is this maybe a mathematically problem? So when choosing 32's grid it can't be always integers?

Thanks,

NBG

Correct. Euclidean Geometry.

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

So there is no solution for this?

I thought AFD is THE perfect tool for such isometric stuff :-(

Also the export of the attached file shows lines between the shapes - but they don't have contours while editing or something :-(

All I can suggest is to turn of pixel snap and move and just have snap to objects on for the editing.

The diagram in this post is about the 2:1 isometric grid but maybe it will help explain why pixel values aligned to an iso grid can't always be integers.
