Info crosshairs left behind

Recommended Posts

  1. View/Studio/Info
  2. Drag from Sample from Location to position cross-hairs on image
  3. Close Info panel
  4. The little red cross-hairs remains on the image.

Shouldn't the cross-hairs disappear with the panel?

Yes, but I'd still classify this as a defect.

The purpose of the cross-hairs disappears when you dismiss the info panel. The cross-hairs should go with it. If reintroducing the panel retains the selection of crosshairs, then the crosshairs on the image should reappear then.

Adjustments don't disappear if you close the adjustment panel
Layers don't disappear if you close the layers panel
Styles don't disappear if you close the styles panel
Your History does not disappear if you close the history panel
Assets do not disappear from your document if you close the Assets panel
etc
etc
etc
etc

IMO When you toggle a studio panel on and off you are only affecting the visibility of that panel in your workspace you are not affecting anything that you have used that panel for when it was opened.


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

That looks like an ad absurdum argument. When there is value in things remaining, then of course they should remain. But in the case of the info panel, there is no value in the crosshairs remaining when the info panel is dismissed. To get rid of it, the user has to re-initiate the panel and change the selection. In this case, it simply makes sense to hide the crosshairs when the panel is dismissed.

Ye, itsesm more logical to have them disappear, or disappear as an option if you quit info panel.

Hum… The crosshairs disappear when I click on the "cursor" (from cursor) just above them. It seems to be the default setting when opening a document.
