Dragging from the Library/Symbols


When I drag something from the symbols library and drop it on the canvas, I have to click somewhere else, then click on the newly added symbol before I get control of it. If I attempt to control it immediately after dropping it on the canvas, I end up controlling the symbols library.

In other words; after dropping a symbol and I try to move it left or right, the symbols library moves left or right instead.

I think I see what you are saying here, Michael. You are trying to nudge the symbol with the arrow keys, but the focus is still in the symbol library. Does that sound right?

I see it here too. Let me check with the devs to see what we can do about it!

Thank you, as always, my friend :slight_smile:


That’s it exactly.
