Aborting new instance of Symbol with Escape

Recommended Posts

  1. Draw something (anything).
  2. Create a Symbol from it.
  3. Drag a new instance of the Symbol from the Symbol Panel but before releasing the mouse button…
  4. Hit Escape key to abort the operation.
  5. The mouse pointer changes, but the Symbol is still being dragged around.
  6. On release the Symbol is placed.
  7. Now try to drag another instance from the Symbol Panel.
  8. The Symbol is not dragged, though the mouse pointer does change.
  9. On release, no symbol is placed.
  10. Now close the document, and start again from #1
  11. You will find that the incorrect behaviour persists. Affinity must be closed and rerun before Symbol dragging returns.




Sorry GIF is a bit abrupt, but hope you can see what is happening!
