Bug - Detaching Symbol Loses Adjustment Layer Setting

Recommended Posts

I've come across what appears to be a bug in Affinity Designer 1.7.2 on Mac OS X (10.11.6)

I've created a multi-layered symbol which includes an Exposure Adjustment Layer set to 1

I have another layer that uses a number of symbols including the one with the Exposure Adjustment Layer.

If I then clone that layer which uses the symbols and detatch all the symbols.

Then the Exposure Adjustment Layer in the now detached instance of the symbol reverts to a setting of 0.

I've stripped down and simplified a bug test scene to reproduce the bug. These steps should reproduce it.

* Load scene BugTest_1B

* Open the Presentation Artboard Layer so you can see the sublayers

* Open the Set 00A Group so you can see the sublayers

* Select layer Letterhead Front Symbol inside the group SET 00A

* Detach the Symbol

Here the image in the Presentation Artboard gets darker, because the Exposure Adjustment Layer in the now detached version of the symbol reverts to 0.

Hi @Scazzino,

I downloaded your file and followed your instructions. I can confirm that the exposure adjestment layer reverts to 0 once the symbol is detached. It perhaps would be better to post all of this in the bug reports forum over here. This is where developers and moderators look for bug reports. Maybe a moderator can move this post?

Cheers,
d.

Thanks for confirming the bug!

I had searched for Bug Reports on the forum before posting, but I didn't find an area to post bug reports so I posted here.

Sorry about that.

Can admin move the thread to the proper forum?
