ID:	47983 Canvas Draw 5 will not allow me to select all the layers at once.
    This drawing has 12 layers, and was created with Canvas 9. With Canvas Draw, I can select one layer at a time, but not all at the same time.

    I am not quite sure what you mean. You can select anything in any visible layer or select all in all visible layers by clicking on the "Select Across Layers" box in the menu bar. Picture is attached.

      Tim,
      The only command I see is shown in this screen shot.
      Show all layers is not selectable.

        On my copy of Canvas 4, I have to click the bar on the right edge of the Tool Bar to show the Layers check box.

            Sorry, I have a big screen on my computer and that check box is always visible because I keep my Canvas window large. You can also get to "select across visible layers" in Preferences > Functionality Options. It might be more logical to expect it under Preferences > Selection, but that has never been so in the many, many years and versions of Canvas I have used.

              My iMac display is 27 inch, but I like leave room to drop things on the desktop. I use about 24" for Canvas.
