Objects moves

Every time that I opening my project I have some objects the moved to same place and change their size and I need to fix it every time(there a lot of other objects that didn’t move,it’s always the same object that makes me problems…any ideas or someone that have the same issue?

First off make sure you are designing in the active window and not the AOD design window. You’d be surprised how often that happens.

There are often slight changes in positions especially in the preview window but sometimes in the design window. I’d need more information about the type of object and such.

the object are move in both in the active mode and in AOD,i have small index that get big and pictures that moving to other position(black ring picture).
if i open the project and don’t makes any change and transfer the watch face to the watch ,the position remain the in the correct position although in the galaxy studio screen they are in the worng position,but if i made any change and sync to the watch the object are messing around again

i think the problem is when the project opening…
its just not loading all the object in their correct although attributes or somthing

I can only speculate.

If you restart your computer, (don’t just turn off and on but restart to clear any cache) does that make any difference? If you just let the computer go to sleep or if it is a laptop it may keep something in a cache.

Fonts on the device can make a difference in layout.

There is always a small difference in positions when you install on the watch because GWS is not WYSIWYG but it is closer now than it was in early releases.

If this is really bad you will need to create the most simple watch design that duplicates it and open a bug report. We can then look at it better.

If I only close the galaxy studio and open it again it’s already change the order of the objects… maybe it because I use external monitor with laptop…but the sizes of the object its changing also so I don’t know…weird problem, I will try maybe to unplug the monitor to see if there is any change…

The only thing I can think of is you are setting the objects on a timeline or something and that resets them.

The settings in the preview window do not affect the design window don’t confuse the time/Steps

no timeline just a not moving object.
thank you anyway.

weird, Do you have a high res monitor? There is a special setting for that it is the only thing I can think of now.

I use laptop with separate monitor and have not issues but neither is high res. Are you running Windows?

Ron

yes running windows and hd resolution 1920x1080…
and i also tried without the monitor it’s didn’t made any change

I can get some funky results with rotating hands and such when the pivots are not correct. I am kind of stumped what this is. Either I don’t understand or it is a corrupted file.

Sorry, I wish I had a solution. I hate unsolved puzzles.

I tried to open new project and its still happening so about the corrupted file I don’t think it’s the issue here, I will try maybe in other pc,maybe the problem is my pc and not in the galaxy studio…

If you can narrow it down to one object that causes this submit a support request and ask that I be copied. I am really curious as to why this is happening.

Ron

I sent request to support and send them samples and screen shots.
The object that moves are picture of circle that always change his size and his position by some pixels and circle of 12 index’s that just move and change his size much bigger size from the original…

The wired thing that I have 2 other 12 index’s in the same size and they just remain the same and not changing like should be,and every time I open the app I just delete the bug index and copy from the others

I don’t like to use an index as a decorative image. Indexes have special properties and are redrawn every time you load them into GWS. Try just creating an image instead, or create a new index each time and not copy the old one.

Thats execalty the problem the indexes redrwan every time but always the same indexes 2 other just remain the same,it’s just problem with galaxy studio app…and annoying one…
I hope they will fix this issue.
So if I will upload a watch face the indexs will remain the same or they redrwan what do you think?

Indexes are a special image (basically they a template not an image). Indexes are re-drawn every time you open a project and you are copying the re-drawn index and not the original template and that is the problem.

Once they are drawn and compiled into a .tpk those are static images so if they appear correct on the watch when you test them on the watch they will always appear that way on every watch. So you would be safe to upload the .tpk binary file.

But you will still have the issue if you update your watch face. You should do it correctly and create a separate instance for each and every index and not copy one and reuse it.

Ok thanks for this info.
I just wrote down the all object and the all there sizes and position and I check them every time that I open the project and fix them,it’s a little annoying but its a solution I think.

It is a solution but a very bad one. Just create a new index for each position, You have the information so you will only need to do it one time and not every single time you open the project.

Also group related indexes so if you move one you move the other at the same time.
