TOPIC: Annoying problem whilst outlining something

Annoying problem whilst outlining something 8 months 1 week ago #6101

This has happened a few times before and is the most disastrous thing to happen.
I have imported a picture in to digitise parts of the picture.
Some of the parts have an outline on them, so I click off onto the page to apply the outline and it also selects the picture and starts outlining/auto tracing the picture.
This normally crashes the PC and I have to start all over again.
How can I avoid this sort of nightmare?

Thanks
SC

Change the Selection Tool settings, so that you do not have the option to "Use Filled Region to Select" checked, you then have to select objects by clicking on the edge of the object, not in the middle of the object.

Options > Signlab Setup > Selection Tool Settings (Signlab 9.1).
Options > Signlab Setup > General preferences > Selection Tool Settings (Signlab 10.0).

Why does this keep turning itself off and on?

That I cannot say, there is no shortcut to turn this on/off.
