It's not possible click on the object to create selection

Recommended Posts

Hi!
In Affinity 1.7 it is not possible to create a selection by clicking on the object (ctrl + click in object) and there is no other option to create a selection from the object (or group of objects).

Ctrl + Click on layer thumbnail, creates a pixel selection, only when in Pixel Persona of Designer.

Is this what you are doing?

As Aamppaa said, you have to click on the thumbnail. In Affinity there is a difference between clicking on the layer thumbnail and clicking on the rest of the layer in the Layers panel. You can also add more to selection from other layers by holding down shift as well. This works too when selecting based on luminosity with ctrl + alt + L click on a thumbnail.

Ah! Thanks for the tip! Is that in version 1.6 it was not necessary to change to persona pixel ... So ... I did not even think about switching to persona pixel (no, I do not even remember when I used this persona for the last time). It was a bug that was between the keyboard and chair then ... :-D

Hi!
Our friend Aappaa has already "solved" the issue. In Affinity 1.6 when clicking on the thumbnail in any persona you can make a selection, and in 1.7 only in the persona pixel. It would be better not to have to change persona only to do this... But... That's what we have! And solve my problem! Thank you!
