  • @VectorStyler If I click on an object while other object already selected, it doesn't get selected. The object which was already selected got diselected, I need to click again to select the object. Meaning it took 2 click to select an object if there is any object already selected.

  • @Jayanta-Das Confirmed here.
    This means that if I want to select two objects for a Combine operation, only box select with click-and-drag works.

  • Same here. Selecting multiple objects with Shift is possible when Node tool is active.

    @Jayanta-Das @b77 @encart The issue has been identified. Fix will be up tomorrow.

    Re-assigned M for this - brilliant! Looking forward to numeric keyboard support for shortcurs as well in macOS, but M is perfect too. So helpful!

    Uploaded a new build (1.1.071). This should fix a few regressions.

  • Thank you @VectorStyler for the new build and all the fixes. Your hard work is much appreciated. It still amazes me to see how quickly VS improves from month to month

  • @VectorStyler Thank you for this build! it has a lot of improvements!

    After upgrading to 071 I have problem. After I close document (blank or not), some panels (Color, Stroke, Brush) are closing as well. - Recordit

    @Harry This might be related to some configuration / option.
    One thing to try is to do a settings and workspace reset, on Windows that is:

    • for settings: Edit -> Preference Files -> Restore Default
    • for workspace: View -> Workspaces -> Restore Default

    If this issue persists afterwards, I will try to replicate it.

  • @VectorStyler Restoring Defaults did not help. I think this issue might be related to Palette panel. After closing it, issue don't persist, but after changing its position - problem still exists - Recordit

    @VectorStyler said in update 1.1.070:

    Improved font detection when importing PDF files.

    I have also problems with opening PDFs - Dimensions are ok, but fonts recognition not always works. Here is Documentation section of VS website created by Opera browser:


    And I'm afraid those are one of the best results I got 😞

    @Harry Importing text from PDF still has some issues.

  • @VectorStyler said in update 1.1.070:

    Added selection commands to select parent or member objects.

    Where have selection commands been added?

    They're not showing up for me in build 70 or 71, in the Select menu or in the available Application Actions in preferences. I would like to able to add them to the Context panel or add keyboard shortcuts.

  • administrators

    @Raven These should be in the Select menu.
    If the main menu was customized, then these will not show up, so the workspace must be reset.

    Will be added into the customization list ASAP.

    Thanks, setting Workspaces >> Restore Default has worked, to show the new Parent and Member selection commands.

    I can't speak for others, but for myself, a "Select All Members" would be more usefull than "Select First Member" and "Select Last Member", especially if it selects all members of multiple selected groups.
