Red Box around Images and graphics Prints out?

Recommended Posts

Hallo, Am confused, came back to an old file and printed it out.  I have no idea what on earth this red outline is that surrounds the graphics (have moved the graphic out of the way so you can see).  Searched everywhere including the Help, searched throughout the document and print settings and have no clue what on earth it is doing there.

Thankyou

Chris.

From the color, they are Snapping Candidates. If you turn off Snapping, or turn off Show Snapping Candidates in your Snapping options, do they go away?

Hallo Walt, hope things are fine with you.  I looked at the snapping manager dialogue, and there are no options for turning off or on any "Snapping canddates"  It just simply says "Candidates"  with 4 options that I don't know what they mean anyway.  When I copied the graphics into another document and then minimized the graphics, those red bounding boxes did not move, so now they are printing over my minimized graphics.  I do not know if there is a clue here, that they were copied over with the graphics.

If you turn off Show Candidates the purple lines should disappear, there is a number which will show the most recent 2 (or 6) layers/objects you had selected or created and they will be outlined in purple if you have Show Candidates On.

Hi Bruce,  I have never had these on, ever.  Here is a screen shot, running through the drop down list there is nothing selected.  Plus the bounding boxes are Red not purple.

It is difficult, in my experience, to accuratey describe that color in a way that all users agree on :)

If you turn off Snapping completely, do the colored boxes disappear?

Hi Walt, I turned off snapping, and also absolutely nothing is selected, no candidates or anything.  The Red box is still there.  It is the inner one, I have removed all margins, the out red line is the snipping tool I used.

Thanks. I'm out of ideas, unless you can share the actual Affinity file with us.

I have removed personal details and have removed all margins.  Also moved bottom left image so that you can see that nasty red box better. It is 9 Mb so not too big.

Mike and Bruce, Seriously....Did I miss that?  My immediate thoughts when I read your posts were, "Whaaaat, why did I not bother looking at the Layers pallette, how stupid,"  thankyou all of you, I really do appreciate the time you took to have a look.  I am sorry that I wasted your time on something I should have done.

You're welcome, Chris.

Besides, it's not a waste of my/our time. (And it's better than it being a bug or corrupted file.)
