Hi Friends, Someone recently has posted in a forum, asking why the first array created by Tiled Clones dialog is deleted, when the 2nd array is created (using the same parent object). http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=33037
Because this is what I previously understood the Remove button is supposed to do, I thought it must be a bug. However searching LP has not turned up any existing bug report (not unless its title contains technical language that I don't understand, or that doesn't really describe the issue).
I'm on Windows, but other operating systems are represented in the forum topic.
I tested going back to version 0.47.3, and the same behavior is seen there. So since it seems to be long standing, and not reported, I have to think it's either intended behavior, or at least not a bug.
Oh interesting! It seems the first array is deleted /whenever/ a 2nd array is created with the same parent (not just when the 2nd array immediately follows the first)! Because I did this (with all default settings):
1 - Object A: 2 x 2 array 2 - Move all the clones away from the array area (to easily notice that they are deleted when the 2nd array is created, and not just covered up by the 2nd array). 3 - Object B: 3 x 3 array 4 - Object A: 4 x 4 array -- This removes all the clones from the 2 x 2 array of object A; leaves the 3 x 3 array of object B alone, and creates the new 4 x 4 array of object A.
If there's a reason for this, could someone explain, in a not too technical way?
Thank you very much, brynn
