Good morning, 

After the latest update of Affinity Publisher, I'm no longer able to use the Edit Detached function. Despite clicking it on, and the appearance of the orange dialogue box telling me that something is detached, I'm unable to change anything. A box appears around whatever item is selected with the Xs in the frame-corners. 

Help ASAP, please!

Hi, SF!,

Also in the latest Beta (1.8.2.603) pictures continue to unexplainedly end up below a master page layer, but at least you can reach them like this:

I don't dare to ask you this: Are the levels in question possibly locked?
Master levels can be locked and unlocked at any time - even without detachment. You can recognize it by the lock symbol on the right edge of a level.

Hi Michail,

No, and certainly not by me...

Can you describe what you do in more detail? By default, when you place an image, it ends up above the selected layer (if no layer is selected, then at the top). Works well for me, it seems.

No, Michail, they aren’t locked. Behaving AS IF locked, but (& I thought I *stated* this before, apologies) dialogue boxes show that I’m in the editing detached mode.

@SF1

Can you upload a sample file or a full size screenshot showing the layers panel and an object you can't move selected


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

I will see if I can replicate it later today. Since I originally posted a couple of days ago, I’ve found that it’s not happening consistently, only intermittently, and that Publisher froze and crashed once while in the Edit Detached mode.
