Lasso selection not working with duplicated shapes (iPad)

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this bug is logged already…I saw a similar post for Designer 2.0 for desktop, however, I’m only having this issue in the 2.1 beta for iPad (1730).

If I duplicate a shape, Designer does not correctly lasso select nodes, instead the selection is offset, or it won’t select anything at all (marquee works fine). If I separate then merge the curves, I can select the nodes accurately again. However, this option is not available for solid shapes. I’ve attached a screen recording below.

Note that it's not duplicated shapes, it's moved shapes. Draw a path with two nodes, move it, and then try to option+drag select the nodes. You need to drag around where the nodes originally were.

Or scaled, rotated, etc.

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