Re: HyperSnap 8 - Random behavior with SELECT
I'm not sure what exactly you mean by SELECT, but please be aware that HyperSnap works in two editing modes: object (shape editing) mode, where every line, shape, text etc. you draw on your image are separate objects, which you can click to select and then move freely around the whole image space, also delete, change colors, edit... And the draw directly on image mode, where anything you draw or type changes immediately the underlying image. You cannot move such drawn shapes or text, select them independently etc. The toggle between the two modes is the small button in the "Drawing tools" section at bottom-left corner.
The default is shape editing mode which makes it easy to pick and move around the shapes, objects, texts you have added. However if you save the image to a standard image file (e.g. BMP, PNG, JPEG...) the shapes are immediately burned into the underlying image for the saved file. If you re-open such file for more editing, you can no longer pick up these shapes independently, they are just part of the image. If you want to preserve the independent shapes for future editing, save your work in "HyperSnap Drawing" format, *.dhs. Only HyperSnap can open such files, so if you need to share your work with others who don't use HyperSnap, or insert it on web pages or whatever, you still need to save as PNG (recommended) or JPEG, but as long as you expect to work on this image again, preserve the .dhs file too.
