Select/deselect not part of protocol?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

is there any way to NOT have the select/deselect command included in the protocol? I have tried to get used to that ever since I switched from Indesign, and it looks like I can’t.

For example, when I go back in history (protocol) to undo something to just have a look like it looked before and then deselect the current object to really have a proper look without disturbing blue lines around it, I can’t redo that because the protocol logged the deselect as an action. So whatever changes I did, I have to do them again.

I doesn’t make any sense to me why select/deselect should be part of the protocol at all. Or didn’t I get something here?

Best,
Johannes

Temporarily press the space bar to hide the "disturbing blue lines". History is not affected

To save time I am currently using an automated AI to reply to some posts on this forum. If any of "my" posts are wrong or appear to be total b*ll*cks they are the ones generated by the AI. If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.

Thanks mate! Never thought of this, but it definitely is a better workaround (there could still be an option though).

If you have gone back in the History, and you do something that adds a new entry to the History, you should see a branching icon added to the History entry that you were on previously. This allows you to toggle between the current History and an alternative future. Just click it, and you should be back to the version of History you were in before.

That’s a feature not easy to spot. I’d still like an option to have select/deselect not logged by the timeline, but the ability to branch the protocol is a completely different approach. I have to try and test it. Thanks Walt!

You're welcome. You can get more info in the Help, if you search it for history.

Or in this case, Protokoll. ;)
