Auto-Select off

InVision auto selects the layer or item when clicking on it, much like Photoshop's auto-select function. Is there a way to turn this off, to work only in the selected layer without having to lock all the other layers, and using CTRL + Click to select the next item in the Artboard. Again very similar function to Photoshop.

Hi Xero,

Thanks so much for taking the time to reach out here in Community and for opening a ticket with our Support team! It looks like one of our Support agents has created a new feature request for you:

  • The ability to move a layer covered by another layer by selecting the layer from the layers list and moving it without moving the layer on top of it.

If there's anything else we can help out with, please don't hesitate to follow up!

Have a wonderful day,
