Selection/Move Disorder

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm running Affinity Publisher on Windows 10, have a fair sized document with 16 artboards (created in AD & then switched to APub since I needed artboards for the current project). My problem is this- I pasted an image into the document cropped it & then rasterized it. And I have no control over the image anymore. There's a blue line around the image but no blue dots and I can not get the thing to move. I thought I could get around it and get it to move in the Transform panel, but it didn't let me then either. The other weird thing was that I could no longer hit 'delete' on the keyboard to delete it. It took either a right click- delete or using the little trashcan at the bottom of the layers panel. And it's not confined to one image only, I tried it on various images... It just started its strange behavior yesterday... the file really isn't that large that it would just be frying the computer's poor brain... are the artboards causing the issue?....

Any ideas, tricks, or tips, anyone? Am I missing an obvious clue to the puzzle? Please just ask if you need more info... I would really like to get this resolved, but I understand that you all are probably running hectic schedules trying to work from home..

Thanks so much!

Well, good news, the issue resolved itself. At least for right now! I found out this morning that it only did it for pixel layers, not for images. And, the usual selection box you see with the blue dots around the edges was at any given random spot on the document and if I right-click - group, I could move, position, & resize it like usual. It almost seemed to be in pieces because if I moved the selection box that wasn't on the pixel layer but at any given spot on the document, it produced duplicates of the pixel layer, only in a very transparent state. And then if I 'sat' on delete for awhile the image got lighter and lighter until it finally disappeared.ย  Did I hear you say weird? Well, I agree!๐Ÿ˜

But now, I just randomly decided to try it again to make sure it hasn't gotten over it by itself. AND. IT. worked like usual!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Œย  But, then i got my co-worker to try it out on his computer. Same document. And it still won't cooperate for him?....๐Ÿค”

Hello @Gabe,

Thanks for your reply!ย  No, I'm not using a graphics tablet, but am using a 2-in-1 Dell XPS and was using my mouse at the time and not my pen.

The issue seems to have resolved itself. ??
