When a group is set as a key object inside of the ungrouped isolation, Distribute Spacing treats some other groups as ungrouped
- Open the test file
- Isolate the group
- Select all
- Ungroup — now you have just <Objects> as the last step of isolation
- Click the leftmost group once with the Selection tool to make it the key
- Press Horizontal Distribute Space button in Align panel Ai will treat the last group as if it is ungrouped — but it is not!
Why do I do this at all? To distribute all objects inside of a group.
I can’t do this when it is grouped, so I select it first, then isolate (to avoid interaction with anything else on canvas), then ungroup this larger group — because otherwise Ai won’t allow me to distribute, because all selected children = the group selected. So I want to ungroup, distribute and then group back... but the bug forces me to undo and exit the isolation. Not cool.
