Layer Merge Bug

IanJTurner 6 months ago in Android / Beta • updated by Jona (Co-Founder & Lead Developer) 6 months ago 4

When merging layers, sometimes the contents of the layers will be randomly resized and moved during the merge procedure. This will, obviously, destroy the animation, as merge is currently not undoable.

Any particular way we can reproduce the issue? There shouldn't be any resizing issues as all frame layers have the same size. Thanks for the help!

It has only happened three or four times and I haven't noticed a common cause yet.  It happens when I have line drawings of parts of a character split across four or five layers and I merge all the layers down to one. Suddenly, the head (for instance) will appear resized and moved to a different part of the canvas for a few frames of the animation.  If it happens again I'll send you the file. 

I have a feeling this behaviour may be related to copy and pasting frames between projects. I was working on a 1280 x 720 project and pasted in some frames from a 1920 x 1080 project.  It all worked fine until I tried to merge some layers, at which point some of the elements jumped to different sizes and positions.

That would make sense. I've added this to review. Thanks!!
