[Con] During building design, selecting new material deselects drawing tool

Summary: When going to design a building, I had both the draw tool and the first material selected in the floor tab. When I changed the material to the middle one, the draw tool still appeared to be selected in the window, but in fact wasn’t. I clicked either the draw tool or the material type again (hard to tell in the video and I don’t recall), and that fixed it.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Start to design a building;
  2. Select a material type. This should have the effect of selecting the draw tool. Note how you could draw the floorplan in the world now;
  3. Change your mind and select another material type. This should have no apparent effect on the draw tool in the window. Note how you can no longer draw the floorplan in the world now.

Oops, that’s right, forgot to change that. Sorry. Should be fixed now. Thank you.

I’ll add that I’ve noticed this too. It can be really fiddly when you are swapping between drawing and erasing modes and selecting different materials.

this has been around for quite some time, in my stream thread you can see all that’s been going wrong for quite some time, this is one of them :wink:
So don’t worry, they have noticed it and it’ll be fixed in time, for now just doubleclick it to make sure you haev it selected
