Resizing and unable to deselect elements

Last updated 2020-10-07 10:04:39 +0100

If you are having trouble when resizing elements or when trying to deselect items in the timeline or on the canvas, you may be experiencing the effects of a bug. 


The things you may notice that would indicate you are being affected by this bug are:

  • Mouse pointer gets stuck to the resize handles and the element continues to be resized after the mouse button has been released.
  • When clicking on a blank part of the canvas to deselect elements, they remain selected in the timeline and cannot be deselected.
  • Unable to move elements on the canvas.


There is a known bug on the Mac version of VideoScribe where functionality can be lost after using Ctrl+click.


Ctrl+click is used to bring up the right-click menu and you should avoid using this command if you are experiencing loss of functionality. If you close VideoScribe and open it again and avoid using Ctrl+click, this issue should no longer occur.
You can
set your Apple mouse or trackpad to right click to avoid issues related to using the ctrl key.
