So I found an interesting bug the hard way – after printing some vinyl at the wrong size (56” instead of 18”).

I had a logo in a file sized to the correct size (18” long). There was a bunch of other stuff in the file I didn’t need, so I copied it. I hit “New from Clipboard” thinking it would have the same scale. Instead it created a file 56” wide, which I didn’t notice until the vinyl arrived back 4½ feet long. I assume that’s not expected behaviour.

No, since if you set the same DPI than the original file, you'll have the same object, the same relative size (in inches, millimeters, etc.).

The real size of your object is its number of pixels. It's important it's the same when you paste it. PPI (Affinity use DPI) is only relative to the document.

When Affinity apps paste the object depending of the DPI, it means it's creating an object at 100% of its size in this document.

Hi K.K.T,

Thanks for letting us know. Unfortunately the DPI is not getting placed on the clipboard along with the contents, so when the new document is created it is defaulting to 96 DPI hence the 56" long, instead of what was probably 300 DPI!

Really sorry about that! I'll get it passed on to development to see if they can get that improved!
