    Default Cut & Paste Issue

    Hi Everybody,

    I'm having a puzzling issue with Web Designer 18. This is happening with any graphic I try to use. Let me explain:

    1. I can choose any graphic from any of the pages listed in the "Page and Layer Gallery". I will choose a simple Blue Circle and then pick EDIT > COPY.
    2. Select any other page in the "Page and Layer Gallery" and then pick EDIT > PASTE

    What will copy to the new page is just a pale outline of the circle I chose, with a dotted red outline, No Blue fill color, No detail. If I export a jpg copy of the copied blue circle, I will see the following image:
    Name:  exported.jpg
Views: 132
Size:  14.1 KB
    This is an image of the background used on the page Pasteboard.

    How did I manage to get myself into this pickle, and how do I restore the Copy and Paste process to behave normally?

    Many Thanks,

    Paul

    Are you pasting onto the Mouse Off layer? This sounds as though you might be pasting onto the Guides layer.

    It's because we all have made this mistake at least a dozen times.
