This bug causes objects to become invisible or be re-positioned wrongly in layout view (only affects editor view). The issue is affected by the zoom level inside the layout view, by zooming in some elements will toggle visibility. I 've encountered the bug in two different projects, however I cannot reproduce in an empty project. Our assumption was that the bug is caused by adding 9-patches and by having a large amount of other objects in the project. This issue interrupts my creation process and I have to rely on dirty work-arounds to make it work (like using fixed scale sprites of the 9-patches so that it doesn't trigger, or remove the 9-patches until the layout is ready to be played).
Attach a Capx
Description of Capx
Contains one layout in which the issue happens. Open the project and zoom in; you will start to lose objects. You can also copy the little box in the middle using ctrl, and that will re-position both in the bottom right (the graphic only, the bounding-boxes will stay where they were). Z-order window shows how many objects actually exist in layout, works as a reference.
Steps to Reproduce Bug
- Open project
- Check number of objects in z-order window, then check what is shown in layout view.
- Press Ctrl + scroll wheel to zoom in.
Some sprites will disappear from view. Others may be repositioned wrongly (only the graphic).
Sprites to remain visible and have their position not to be affected by this issue.
Editor only, no browsers are affected.
