Outline Problem

Hi!

When I want to make a change in the Outline Properties (F12) of a grouped draw in X5 and previous versions they only applies the changes on the outlined drawings without modifying the objects with no outline, but now in X6 in the same case it applies the changes and properties to ALL the objects in the group, even the NO outlined objects. Does anyone knows about this?

Thanks people.

  • it seems designed. But is it more logical? Before versions seems wrong.

    It's relative for me. In some drawings I use outlined and non-outlined parts, so, when I try to change any outline property Corel apply the change to every part of the drawing.

    Corel Dev Team maybe add this to options. My solution is styles for similar works. Styles and child styles are very useful.

    Yeah! That's true. There are many options to avoid this XD. Thanks my friend.

    Please give additional details about your process and result, because when in X5 I create two objects -- one with and one without an outline -- then group those two objects, any change I make to the outline properties of the group is applied to both objects in the group, not only to the one object that had an outline before the objects were grouped. This result is quite different from the outcome you report.

    For what it's worth, it does not seem unreasonable to me that Draw would apply outline changes made to a group of objects to all the objects within the group. I understand the case for the other approach as well, but grouping objects together would seem to indicate commonality between those objects.... Different users and user implementation of Draw tools will result in different preferences for how those tools perform. Perhaps you can suggest a new addition to the options menu.

    Interesting. In my versions or X3 and X4 all grouped object are treated the same. Outline changes are applied to all in the group.

    It appears that the stacking order in the group is of importance.
    Probably the topmost object in the group is dominant.

    If I have a group of outlined objects and then one object on top which doesn't have any outline, and I try to change outline color, All objects lose their outline. If any other object is on top, it works as expected.

    Try doing exactly the same thing but put another object, with other outline attributes, on top in the group.
