Move Tool video tutorial by InAffinity - have things changed in version 1.9

Recommended Posts

I have been using the processes shown in a video tutorial by David Straker and one thing that is supposed to happen according to the video is different.   

The Move Tool in Affinity Photo - YouTube

Query - at about 4 mins 52 secs into the video you double-click on the rectangle and show that the selected tool is the Move Tool. However when I do that it goes straight to the Node Tool. Is that a change in Version 1.9 (or even earlier) please? ..... or am I doing something wrong?

First I confirmed what you found, double-clicking on a shape selects the Node tool. However, I then watched his video and what he does is selects the Move tool first, then double-clicks on a shape, AND points out that doing so selects the node tool. So yes the correct behavior seems to be, when double-clicking on a shape, will cause the node tool to be selected.
