Cropped symbols are incorrectly positioned


Hi there.

I noticed one of my files always reverted some positioning. I then played around and noticed, that if you crop a symbol its position is not restored correctly after a reload. (OS X Yosemite, Mockups 3.1.7)

So what I do:

  • I insert a symbol at coordinates 100, 100 (x,y)
  • I select the symbol and crop it, I cut off the top 100px, so the new coordinates of the cropped symbol are 100,200
  • Then I move the symbol up to the old coordinates 100,100.
  • I close the file
  • I reopen it.
  • The symbol then us at coordinates 100,200 instead of 100,100.

If you make a group around the symbold and crop that instead it works fine.


Hey Roland,

I’m sorry you are running into this issue.

The bad news is that it’s a bug. The good news is that we are actively working on resolving it. I don’t have an ETA, unfortunately, but stay tuned to When we get the fix implemented, we will definitely notate it there.

Thanks for taking the time to write up a detailed post about it, Roland. We will get the fix shipped as fast as we can!
