Objects moving when selecting them


Recommended Posts

Hi, this is the issue, i align my stuff, place the objects wherever i want and so far so good, but, sometimes when i select an object it moves slightly to any direction, and i have to undo that transform since i didn't ask for that, it happens randomly and in all the documents i've worked so far.

Having looked into this, the reason this occurs is because Designer thinks you are about to start a drag (which then runs the snapping code). This is because the time between the mouse going down and back up is greater than 250ms. We use this value to determine whether you are beginning a drag (along with an alternate check on the distance moved).

I second that. Objects should only move when you start moving them, it's unacceptable. I believe Affinity should check if the mouse coordinates have stayed the same after those 250 ms. But it's great software! Thanks for making the beta public.

Isn't that what Mark said the software already does?

When using a stylus or a mouse, it's very difficult to keep the cursor at exactly the same screen coordinates while tapping or clicking. I mostly use either a trackball or a touchpad, both of which allow me to click without moving the cursor, so I haven't encountered this problem in AD.

I can reproduce this, even with the mouse's pointer standing still for more than 250ms.

Actually I moved the pointer to an object then clicked with my laptop's touchpad button (to avoid unintentional pointer moving while clicking on external mouse's button) and still, the bug got reproduced.

I LOVE programming and vector drawing. :)
