Selecting in hidden view mode remains a problem. It comes and goes. It never works if in print display, that’s a known bug, but often doesn’t work with print display off. I’ve verified that, but so far I ihaven’t been able to duplicate if for gif. One of these days.
I have been testing it now with print display on and off and it is working fine for me. Please, send us information once you are able to reproduce it to find a solution.
Right after selection hadn’t worked and I invoked the gif recorder, I was to create this gif, which shows at least a substantial lag, and that the dashed selection rectangle doesn’t display.
Please, could you send us your file? I’ll try to reproduce it in my PC.
I have emailed it to firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s rare that a file is small enough that I can simply send it without zipping an uploading and linking (usually not time for that in my hectic workday) but this time it’s a 22MB file.
