No longer able to select objects across multiple layers in the artboard area

Recommended Posts

I used to be able to select multiple objects across multiple layers with a simple shift + select. But recently (lest week or 2) this has not been possible. No object is selectable by a simple click on it on the artboard unless I am currently in that layer, I have to select the object or layer in the layer palette before selection is possible.

 

I can select multiple objects across multiple layers via the layers palette, but this slow and cumbersome on complex layers.

 

I feel like this might be an option that I have accidentally turned on but I can't see anything in the menus, or in the preferences, that might help me undo it.

Hi Stocky,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Check if you have the Edit All Layers button on the bottom left of the Layers panel enabled/pressed.

Thanks, this is exactly it!!!

 

Glad it was a stupid error on my part and not an actual issue with the software.

 

Cheers for the help!
