Does anyone know why I cannot resize text graphically in some views and able to in others? I have checked all the text default settings and there seems to be no difference between ones that I can resize and others that I cannot. In the case of the text annotations that cannot be resized, no pet pallets open when clicking on corner points. I am at a loss to explain why this is happening and wonder if anyone else is experiencing this. AC23.

Hello,

Is it a teamwork project ?
All your layers are unlock ?
Is not your text into a module ?
Did you desactivate the groups before editing your text ?
Is it possible that you text is locked (Edition/Lock/Unlock) ?
Do you have exactly the same mistake after having closed and opened your project ?

I believe it is a known bug that was trapped & reported under Beta. I haven't had a problem with it until today. I've no idea what causes it. Make sure you report it to your dealer so it's not forgotten.

Thanks for your replies! I have discovered what is causing the issue:
When the text background (or Opaque toggle) is off, the text box can only be moved using the centre grip and no pet palette appears. WIth text background activated it is all back to normal.

I don't think I encountered this in AC22

It will depend on your set up. I am a one man band, so I can make my own choices and manage the consequences. I had accumulated rubbish from various apps over time and a number of files had 32 bit support issues which Apple chopped off in this release, so I made the decision to stop Apple nagging me to upgrade and started with a completely clean install of Catalina. I haven't had any recurring issues and very few crashes, certainly no more than previous releases.

If you do decide to do a clean install remember to make at least one backup of all your data, ideally one being a bootable clone, and don't forget to upload your license to the GS pool first whatever upgrade path you take.

I am not having any issues in 23, but I am on Windows not Mac.
With the quick selection (magnet) turned off, I can select the text (must be on a corner node or the center node), then I can click on any node and the pet palette will appear.

Or I can just hold the space bar (to toggle quick selection on), select the text anywhere and while still holding the space bar can click anywhere on the text to activate the pet palette.

For me 23 is exactly the same as any previous version.
