I have a problem with the freehand selection tool (lasso tool). When I have selected a certain area and release the mouse button, my cursor suddenly has the "hand" shape, instead of the "cross" shape. So I cannot proceed in adding (by pressing CTR) more areas to my selection. When I restart Affinity and press the freehand selection tool, the "cross" cursor is back. But after a few minutes the problem starts again. What I also found was that when, after releasing the mousebutton and losing the possibility of adding a selection (because the handtool popped up), I went back to the tool bar and pressed the selection button that contains five tools, one of which is the freehand selection tool. Subsequently I chose the rectangular marquee tool and all of a sudden the "hand" cursor was back. And I was able to add to my selection. When I tried to go back to the freehand selection tool, the "hand" popped up again and I couldn't add anything anymore. I hope I made a shamefull mistake. Otherwise this is a crucial bug. Could you please help me?
On Affinity Photo 1.6.6 on MacOS: If a switch is made from "polygonal" to "freehand" WHILE polygonal is active and an INITIAL control point has already been made, the tool will switch to freehand well off the canvas, and then if "click-to-clear-selection" is done ON canvass, no further freehand selection can be made. Clicking back to polygonal allows for polygonal selection, but clicking back to freehand, no selection can be made.
I frequently close the loop in the free hand selection prior to when I intend to. This is frustrating because I have to start the whole thing again. I've been advised that I can use the history tool to go back previous steps. The problem is that the history tool (on my version) doesn't seem to acknowledge any slection points of the freehand selection. It only acknowledges when I started using the free hand selection tool, rendering it useless for me as I it means I just have to go back to the start. Are there any settings that enable history to record each point of the freehand selection tool?
