Leave newly created objects selected for further editing

  • Under Consideration
Frequently, when adding a Shape, Arrow or similar object, I want to modify a property – or fine-tune its position by nudging it with the cursor keys.  Most of my objects use thin lines, so it's a little fiddley to reselect the object every time after creating it.

I appreciate that some people may prefer to continue to operate in the current manner, so what I'd request/suggest is an application preference setting which would allow the user to select one mode or the other.  I would toggle that setting in an instant!

Good suggestion. If others are interested in this, I'd encourage them to "Me Too" or reply.

Agreed. And I can't seem to de-select with the Esc key. Also, moving and resizing object is buggy. It want to either create new objects or it moves the current object completely when I'm trying to resize and adjust the shape with the handles.
