[Cannot Reproduce] Text selection does not work with right- or left-aligned text on a path (Affinity Designer)

Recommended Posts

When adding text on a path (in my case, an ellipse), I can select the text on the path only if it's alignment is centered. If I left-align (or right-align) the text, I can no longer select text in any way:

  1. Select all text by double tapping
  2. Select parts of the text by dragging over the text.

I don't think a video is needed to demonstrate this, as the bug can be reproduced in ~30 seconds: new document, add ellipse, add text to ellipse, left align the text, attempt to select part of the text.

That is very strange, I can't reproduce it anymore, either. Maybe it was "fixed" by relaunching the app or something. I'm pretty sure I'm not imagining things because I tried to select some text for quite a while yesterday, but didn't succeed. 

If I find a way to reproduce the problem reliably, I'll report back.
