Purple/Magenta outlines after deselecting objects? Read this

Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

If you are seeing purple/magenta outlines left after deselecting objects then you're not seeing a bug, but a feature called Snapping Candidates.

By default Affinity will let you snap to the last 6 previously selected objects. These are called 'Snapping Candidates' - to help you better identify which these last 6 objects are is an option called 'Show snapping candidates'. When this is enabled you will get a purple/magenta outline on those objects - this is likely what you are seeing. Simply disable this to remove the outline.

Please see the Snapping help topic for more information on the snapping features:
