Crazy Man Dan Posted February 27, 2007 Share Posted February 27, 2007 Alrighty, these two I'm pretty sure are in fact bugs. :wink: Firstly: Usually, while drawing a selection, you are free to drag over the canvas under the floating windows. However, if you have used the real-time selection panning mode (Right and Left mouse buttons depressed together, yes it's possible I just made that name up...) while drawing that selection, PDN give focus to the floating window instead of allowing you to draw behind it. To repro: 1) Open PDN. 2) Make sure there is at least one window open (it doesn't matter which one). 3) Switch to the Rectangle Select tool. 4) Left-click and drag to start creating a selection (keep left mouse button pressed). Drag the cursor across the floating window to see normal operation. 5) With the left mouse button still held, press and hold the right mouse button to enter real-time selection pan mode. 6) Release the right mouse button to reenter selection drawing mode. 7) Once again, drag the cursor across a floating window. PDN now gives focus to the floating window instead of letting you drag behind it. For someone like me, who has the Layers window taking up the entire right side of the interface, that can make dragging right a hassle. The second bug is directly related to the first: To see what I mean: 1) Follow the steps up there to get into "bug" mode. Keep the left mouse button pressed after step 7 up there. 2) While hovered over a floating window, release the left mouse button as if to commit the selection. 3) Pull your cursor off the window. The selection is still in drawing mode though no mouse buttons are pressed. Now, left-click and drag. The selection moves about as if the right mouse button were still pressed. To commit the selection, the right mouse button must be clicked first and held while the left mouse button is clicked. It's convoluted and confusing, I know. If necessary, I could use Cam-Studio to record a short video of a demonstration.
