Affinty Publisher - on click image inside a frame instead of the frame itself


Recommended Posts

Works for me here on Mac OS 11.7 Which tool are you using? I use the Move tool (the arrow) and have no problem with it, If I double click I get the image, if I Command + Click I get the image. This with clicking on the canvas, not the Layers panel.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 12.7.4 
Affinity Designer 2.4.1 | Affinity Photo 2.4.1 | Affinity Publisher 2.4.1 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

I did not use or try doubleclick as I did not on the former version. I don't want to get the image but its image frame. So, yes with a click I get the image but not with any click its frame. I only get the frame by clicking it in the layers panel. And also yes, of course I use the move tool.

I tried again as well with wacom and the mouse in OS 10.15. and a single click does not choose the frame but always the image which is maybe a bug. Because one has to be able to simply move the frame and mostly not the image inside that frame first.

With the Move Tool selected, and a layer selected, is 'Allow selection to consider items inside a group' enabled in the Context Toolbar? If so, disable it and that should allow you to select the Picture Frame.

Note: The 'Allow selection to consider items inside a group' may be in a different location than in my screenshot, depending on what type of layer you have selected.

This is what I call a solution, thanks - as I did not change it (except I did it accidentially) it was setup like this by default? I was not aware of this button and of its function at all. What's the purpose of it?

Thanks for that great hint towards this tiny little button and the solution to my issue (before I emberass myself and report a bug).

Kind Regards,

Uwe

I can't remember what the default is. I thought it was disabled by default, but not positive.

It's just an option that may appeal to users, depending on how they like to work or what they're working on. It's faster to single-click to select a nested object rather than having to double click, sometimes multiple times, to drill down into a folder to select an object.
