Bug: Text Layer and 'Place' image

Recommended Posts

Publisher released version and Beta

(1) Create a new document
(2) create text layer and insert text
(3) Keep 'Frame Text' tool live and 'Place' image
(4) the image is automatically placed as a child of the text layer ie the normal 'Place' symbol does not become active
(5) now try and move the image child layer or the image itself in the main view - I find it's not possible, although you can delete it or step back with undo

The issue seems to be that if the text layer is selected AND you have the 'Frame Text' tool active' then when you go to the 'Place' command all types of documents are selectable. If you deselect the layer (click anywhere in the main window) or change to the 'Move' tool, keeping the text layer active, then the options in the 'Place command are limited to .txt (which seems to include docx and rtf files), which makes sense.

However, in a workflow easy to create a text frame and then move straight to the 'Place' command, forgetting to deselect the text layer and keeping 'Frame Text' tool active. Regardless, you should of course be able to move the child layer to anywhere in the stack layer.
