    Unhappy Bug? Selector tool becomes page-size change tool

    Hi,

    In Xara Designer Pro 7, when I have selector tool active and want to drag over a number of elements to select them the selector tool will change the size of the canvas (page). Is that not a bug? I used this way of selecting elements often, and it is not good for me with this new behaviour.

    Is it a bug or is it a new setting which I then need to change?
    Cheers,

    Sten

    are you starting to drag too close to the edge of the page and activating the 'resize page by dragging' feature?

    Hi,
    I have recorded a screencast which you can see here: http://screencast.com/t/5sNTeqtrDY
    The times where I stop on various places on the canvas I click the left mouse to select nothing...
    I cannot even start selecting using a "drag select" as XDP7 goes into a page-size-change mode.
    Cheers,

    That sure is an odd problem Netsi. I can't even imagine how that can happen because as far as I know there is no 'page resize' mode until your mouse hovers over the bottom or right edges. Your mouse cursor clearly shows that you are right. Have you recently bought a new mouse and installed some new drivers for it? I've never seen this happen before, so I'm only guessing.
    Maybe you can remove the application and reinstall it? Or have you already tried this?

    I have removed the installed version and reinstalled it. Now I don't have that problem, so it was some kind of bad installation...
    Cheers,
