Selecting an Artboard automatically selects full-area background object

Recommended Posts

1) create artboard

2) create background object (same size as the artboard, e.g. a background)

3) create some other objects, place them on the artboard

4) create second artboard

5) select "artboard" tool from the toolbar

6 click on first artboard and observe layers

--> The Artboard tool selects the artboard as well as the background object

I think this is what I’m running into when I have an artboard set up with different objects layered on it, including the full-area background. When I try to duplicate the full artboard - even when tapping on it in the layers panel (I’m using it on an iPad Pro 12.9 gen 5) - and then I touch and hold/drag the artboard, it only selects the full-area background. Version 1 never had this issue. Did you ever figure it out? It drives me nuts.
