Problem with selecting objects near texts


Recommended Posts

Something like this happens all the time:

Attached example:
I click on the yellow rectangle to select it
but the text is being selected instead
(does not matter if it's artistic text or text frame)
event though I am clicking outside of its bounding box

Sometimes it is impossible to select objects that are close to text because always the text object is being selected instead...

You are going to need to upload an example Designer document, so we can see what could be causing the issue

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.

Maybe they are in different groups ? Can you show your layers panel?


Try selecting both then shift-select text to select rectangle.

This is still a known issue logged with our developers it should hopefully be fixed soon. I'll update this thread once I get any more info.

What is disturbing is that this error has been going on since November 2022 and only applies to version 2.

Version 1 worked fine.
It is impossible to work normally with this error.

I was hoping this would be fixed in the latest Beta version.

Seems to work fine on iPad versions.

Hi Guys ! This issue is still here and it is really not easy to work with that! Could please consider that bloc text can be selected ONLY when cliking on the bloc text and not on the line height of the text ? This would be really great !

The issue "Layer order affects object selection" (REF: AFP-5621) has been fixed by the developers in internal build "2.2.0.1900".
This fix should soon be available as a customer beta and is planned for inclusion in the next customer release.
Customer beta builds are announced here and you can participate by following these instructions.
If you still experience this problem once you are using that build version (or later) please reply to this thread including @Serif Info Bot to notify us.
