Hello, I use affinity for schematics and I like the intuitive grid snapping. Here's the question: I often need to come back to stretch a complicated schematic to add new elements. See the screenshot #1 for a small example of what I mean by stretching. I was hoping to find a way that I can drag a box to select objects (including the text and the groups) AND a subset of nodes on the paths that make up the connections and then drag everything at once. However, I am finding I need a lot of clicks. For example, in screenshot #2 you can see that if I select a bunch of objects with the move tool (with CMD since the whole drawing is in a group), then switch to the node tool and try to drag select all the nodes, I am only capturing about half of them (and not capturing the text at all). I have to manually select the missing ones, and have to move the text separately. Also, I am finding that sometimes I cannot drag select a group of nodes consistently in other contexts. For example, in screenshot #3 you can see that the nodes are not changing to solid blue even though the paths are selected and I've boxed the nodes with the selection rectangle. I have to select them one at a time. Is there something I am doing wrong? Also, is there a better way to achieve the stretch? I can alter how I construct the objects and layers if that makes things easier. I have seen some suggestions to convert all shapes to curves, but would prefer not to do this, especially not the text, since it may need editing later. Thanks in advance. Schematic.afdesign
