I have run across something a few times recently while doing things on the Glowforge where I will have an SVG with multiple parts (all designed in one color so they will all be a “cut” function), but when I go to drag them somewhere else, it only grabs one of the parts.
Ok, so I know this is a thing so you can arrange things for material savings.
The most recent instance of this was just now when I was arranging some of the Honeycomb Hold Down Clips to cut, and it kept dragging the outline of the object, but not the little vertical slit. I was ignoring the engraving on it. And this is not my design…but I have had it happen to one of my designs.
I was copying and pasting a few of these all over the place within the GFUI…and sometimes, the entire object would drag and sometimes, it would take one of the pieces and not the other.
It is incredibly frustrating!
I know the trick of clicking and dragging around the entire object. From there, I should be able to drag everything highlighted to a different location. Click and drag…highlight it all…go to click and the items are still separate.
What is the deal?! What am I doing wrong? Am I not holding my mouth the right way?
