Since you already have code in place to use your homegrown selection handles, can you adjust things so that the line doesn't actually have to be "selected" to make changes? My guess is that the small button you implemented can be dragged, and then you do your magic and adjust le

I have an app that I'm migrating from LC 6.6.5 to 8.1.9. In it, a user creates documents that may consist of lines, boxes, text areas and images that they insert. There's been a big change between 6.6.5 and 8.1.9 in the selection handles on objects. In 6.6.5, the selection handles on lines were

The software should allow you to select the handle of the foreground object if only one is selected, and if multiple objects are selected, the nearest neighbor to your click point. If anchors are so close as to conflict, you should be able to zoom in. I think this is a non-issue. Bob S > On

Just a general agreement here, I also have some issues with the new design for selections. The circular handles look strange to me but it's an adjustment I can deal with. The dotted outline bothers me more because it is harder to see the edges of the object, though I suspect it was implemented
