[Aff. Designer] Tip / warning: always check for forgotten or accidental pixel selections


Recommended Posts

This is just a small tip/warning but it took me a while to figure out what was going on.

Since Designer has the Pixel persona one has to be aware that there is the second type of selection - the pixel selection. The first type is obviously the object selection (selection box).

If you are working with both types of selections (switching to Pixel persona and back) at one point you may forget to clear the pixel selection (deselect) or you may create the pixel selection accidentaly. And that might cause problems/confusion later on.

This happened to me:

While in Draw persona I selected a pixel object and noticed that the selection (bounding) box is completely off the object and has a different size:

I thought that it had to be some kind of a bug. It took me a while to figure out that it is in fact a forgotten (or accidental) pixel selection. So ultimately Ctrl + d solved this issue.

So if something is off with your object selection box or you get any sort of weird behavior alway try Ctrl + d.

Maybe this is too obvious but you never know... Anyway I just wanted to share this.
