💡Feature Idea: Keep selection when spacebar+dragging canvas

edited February 2022 in Feature Ideas

When I select many things, and then press the spacebar to move the canvas, the selection gets unselected.

I want to select many things, use the spacebar to move the canvas, and then keep the selection so I can continue to move the selection after moving the canvas.

For reference, this is how Figma works.

  • Hello guys, thanks for the app! Awesome!!

    My suggestion is to allow users to set which shortcut should be available. For exemple, I use Adobe's Softwares, and to navigate on the artboards there I press and hold spacebar + click + drag, it is already automatically in my mind. However, on Mural, when I do the same action it deselect the objects I had selected. It is also true that I can navigate with this action, but not without deselect the objects.

    Hej, I think there was a similar request in general that selections should remain when moving around. I support that request!
