Can't move or transform objects.

Recommended Posts

Hello! I love all the Affinity Products (including Designer), only that sometimes, when I work with objects (especially when I move them or copy/paste them) I can't move/transform them anymore. They just get "locked", I see the bounding box when I click on them, and the only way to move them is with the arrow buttons. Depending on my work flow, it happens from a few times a day to once every few minutes.

The only thing that solves the problem is closing and reopening the program, but imagine opening and closing the program even once a few minutes. It gets very frustrating!

Hope this problem will be solved soon.

Hi @ellycolor Welcome to the forums. I'm sorry to hear you are having some issues.

Would you be able to make a video of the steps you have to take to result in your item no longer transforming please? It would be a big help in showing me how to recreate the issue.

Thank you @SPaceBar for your response! Sure, I managed to do a screen recording, using some random shapes that I added in different groups.

I noticed the bug shows up especially when I work with object groups and object subgroups, and when I work with multiple artboards (especially when I copy/paste objects between artboards or between different files).

You can see the actual bug (as I'm trying to move the objects) at the time of 1:17 .

Hi @ellycolor Thanks for adding the video. Are you by any chance using and tablet? This looks like an issue what can happen when switching between a tablet and a mouse.

@SPaceBar I found the solution for this problem now, thanks to your idea: when I can't move or transform any object with my mouse, I just move it with my tablet a little and it "defreezes" the objects.

Thank you for your suggestion!
