Why can't I move an image that I copied into another image once I "set" it?

This was available in v12.  Why did you take it away?

I can have an image open in the editor and either copy another that is in the editor or from an outside source and paste it in that document.
What is not working? Can you provide some steps so we can narrow down what is failing for you?

Thanks.  See my comment to Rick Stone.
I often work on a document & then save it off as a "snag" file to later edit it further.  I want the objects & text to be editable until the document is complete.

When you say "set" it, do you mean you flattened it? If so then you have merged all the objects on the canvas into one. If you use undo to the point where the flattening occurred, you can then move the object.

If that is not what you mean, please could you elaborate?

Set means I have it sized & placed where I want.

Hi there

If you click Edit > Editor Preferences > Advanced, perhaps you have the option for automatically flattening enabled and you need to clear the option to toggle it off?



Cheers... Rick :)

That was it.  Thanks Rick.  I don't know why they messed with this setting & others in this new release..
