This topic outlines a known issue that users may encounter. Bluescape is aware of this issue and is actively working on a resolution. This issue is estimated to be fixed in the next release, Feb. 11, 2022.
Actions performed to recreate:
Created a canvas and added a few objects to the canvas
Press the shift key and group select one or more objects inside the canvas
What’s expected to happen:
Only the grouped elements are selected, not the canvas.
Canvas automatically gets selected with the selected objects inside the canvas.
I have two or more elements selected inside the canvas, and when I move them, only the selected elements move with the canvas. The other elements remain static and don’t move with the canvas even though they are contained inside the canvas.
What worked best for me was to resize the canvas to be smaller and to the side of my content so no content was wrapped in a canvas. I did my group select actions that I needed to and then just grabbed the canvas node to resize back over all of my content. Very quick.
