Selecting Objects on Artboards

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I opened a multi-page PDF in Designer. It created an artboard for every page. I tried to drag across a selection of elements on one of the artboards, starting from an empty area outside the artboard. (I was trying to select all the parts of a vector logo that had been broken up into separate elements on import so I could re-group them.)

This is something I do all the time in the shipping version, but the behavior is different in the current beta. If I start to drag from outside the artboard, I can only select the entire artboard, not individual objects within it. Today was the first I had noticed it. I don't know if it's a feature change or a bug, but I most definitely prefer the previous behavior. I looked for a preference. The closest thing I could find was this:


...which I also prefer (old Freehand-style selection behavior), but it doesn't help with this issue. Am I missing something?

It's broken in the current Beta - I've built a and I'm just testing it right now to make sure it's all working as expected before uploading it... Expect a new notification about it on the forums either later today or tomorrow morning :)

Sorry about that :(
