Trouble selecting notes / image adornments
Jul 26th, 2016, 11:56am
 
Hi! I've upgraded to latest version and I am having the following issues on a  TBX file with 10-20 text notes and 5 dragged images (placed as adornments):

clicking on empty space not always deselects currently selected note;
- clicking image adornments not always selects them
- difficult to drag / move image adornments.

With a blank file, no problem. But after drag-dropping several images, and using zoom in/out with the trackpad, the problem seems to arise, and the TBX file becomes difficult to manage.

Has anyone else experienced this? This my TBX is not mission critical so I can share it for testing: https://www.dropbox.com/s/66pz9brp3kkgrgz/adornment-selection-problem.tbx?dl=0

(try selecting the image that shows a landscape topography emphasized with a red line)

All the best,
Bruno

I can confirm your observation in v6.6.2 / OS 10.11.6 / MBAir 2015 with 8MB RAM. Nothing obvious wrong - I'd drop a line to support, as it's not something resolvable here.

I do note though, that given the file only has a new notes and adornments and is 9+MB in size I do suspect some of those images might be quite large. This isn't an image edited/illustration toll. I'd try with smaller, lower res JPG/PNG and see if that helps.

Thanks for confirming. Reported to support as well.
Yes, I was a bit careless with image size. I'd really wished that TB dealt better with images in maps not storing them in the TBX file, and handling their display / zoom in / out / pan without trouble.

Perhaps in v7! (crossing my fingers).

It turns out that, through bad luck, a bunch of hidden links pass through the adornment in question, and that confuses Tinderbox.



We'll have a fix backstage shortly.

That should be it. I remember adding / removing / changing links a lot ... thanks for the quick answer.

The fix is now available backstage, and will likely be available generally soon.
