Can't select any objects

Giving Cura "Full Disk Access" did not solve the problem for me.   I find it interesting that it seems to have worked for at least 2 people.

    For me neither, but my workaround is to open a dialog box from a plugin, after you close the dialog, you can select the object again.

    I think the problem is not constant. I can work for hours without any problems but on other days, I have to do my workaround every second or third action I do on the object.

    That's interesting... you're "open a plugin dialog box" work around does not work for me.  The only plugin I have is Auto Orientate. Maybe you have a plugin that does something different?

    I use the Custom Printjob Naming plugin and it works well.

     

    It was not my idea to go this way, it was found out my someone else here. So thanks for this work around.

    The "Custom Printjob Naming" plugin does do the trick.  I can't select an object, I open the "Custom Printjob Naming" plugin dialog box, click "Cancel", and then I can select objects.  Maybe that info will help the developers?

    This is an incredibly frustrating issue. Full Disk Access did not resolve it for me, and the dialog workaround also does not do the trick. The only thing that works is quitting Cura and opening it again.

     

    Big Sur 11.0.1 (20B29)

     

    I hope this is fixed asap.

    FYI in my case the permissions didn't work. Per the other topic I could get it to work by opening the modify gcode popup and then close it.

     

    I wish I had never upgraded to big sur my VBox is down too now 😞

    You just made my day!!!  I was going crazy having to save and reopen each time I add a second object. Thanks

    Hi - 

    I followed this and almost thought I managed to get it working but my excitement was short lived.  I have two issues, as they are intermitted I can only assume they are bugs;

     

    1.) After adding support blockers (either to block support, generate support and custom define settings for certain area) preview is not available from time to time.  The only 'consistency' I could find in this glitch was that this occurred whenever custom supports are added in the PREPARE MODE before slicing and preview.  

     

    My workaround:

    • Open model
    • Slice model
    • PREVIEW model
    • While in PREVIEW mode, add support.
    • Now when slicing again, changes are visible and PREVIEW works.

    2.) After adding the first custom support, the new object is 'clickable' and can be moved using the Mouse/Trackpad. After adding a SECOND support blocker, the objects can only be selected in the object list.  The major concern here is that yu can no longer move the object with the mouse/trackpad.  You can manually enter co-ordinates. This is kind of besides the point as no changed settings seems to have an affect (from the second model onwards) which is clearly visible when slicing and preview.

     

    My workaround (Sadly the only thing I could find to work):

    • As per above
    • Add support blocker (for what ever purpose) 
    • Change settings as required
    • Slice.
    • Save File.
    • Quit Cura
    • Relaunch Cura and open using "import models"
    • Add second support blocker and repeat process.
    • .... Live, Die, Repeat..... 😕 

    Hope someone else has a better solution (or can tell me I am utterly stupid and doing something very obvious very wrong) to these bugs... quite annoying to be honest.

     

    Kind Regards,

    Friedl. (Cura 4.8.0 on OSx)

    Thanks this fixed it for me as well.  I just upgraded to Big Sur and not being able to point and drag models around was a real drag!

    Maybe those people used Cura 4.9.0? We upgraded a number of things so big sur would be supported better.

    Also; as a developer, knowing that it doesn't occur with everyone is actually a helpful bit of information.

    I'm having the same problem with 4.9 and 4.9.1 on Catalina.  Fortunately 4.8 behaves normally, so I'm glad I always save older versions of software when upgrading - otherwise I'd have to use one of those other slicers.

     

    It seems like it's not registering mouse clicks correctly: I can't select a model, and when I choose one from the object list, clicking the big, colorful move arrow unselects it.  Also, scrolling and moving the print bed behaves very strangely: it pivots on seemingly random spots in space, sometimes clicking on one of the arrows to move a model causes the entire bed to jump almost out of view to the upper right.  On top of that the build plate shows a lot of artifacts, especially when I rotate it - I'll attach a screen shot and a short screen recording in a zip file.

     

    None of the fixes listed in this thread have helped: selecting a plugin, slicing, granting full disk access.  An earlier post mentioned that the python version could be a problem.  /usr/bin/python is 2.7.6 but my default is /opt/local/bin/python, version 3.9.4, from MacPorts.

     

    I'm a professional techie so if there's anything I can do to help, please don't hesitate to reach out.  I'll be glad to play debugger.  (I do it at work, so why not at home, right?)

     

    Thanks!

     

    -Jason

    That's definately not part of the solution. We bundle cura with a specific version of python and that is the one it uses.

    Could you also report this on our github? It's a lot easier for us to keep track like that.

    As a @jasons mentioned, the problem is in bad registered mouse pointer. In my case, this is caused by multiple monitors attached to the my macbook (or by reattaching monitors?). Application must be opened on "right" display (don't known on what depends it), then it should work properly.

    Thanks for this! I've been having this issue on Mojave. Since I could click on all UI elements other than the actual model and model transforms menu, I never suspected the mouse inputs. Moved the Cura application winddow to my default monitor and everything immediately started working.

    I have never had this issue with 4.9, but now I use Arachne beta, and I got this really annoying bug, need to exit and restart Acura after only few minutes.
     

    - Full Disk Access" did not solve the problem.

    - The "Custom Printjob Naming" plugin doesn’t do the trick ( in fact has worked one times  )

    - I don’t have external monitors

    I am not 100% sure but the problem with the mouse pointer, was fixed in one of the latest Cura versions, but I guess the fix was not merged yet into the Arachne branch. 

     

    Always keep in mind that the Arachne is BETA and even if it is working well for most people it is still an early beta version. I am sure all the fixes in the official Cura branch will be merged to Arachne before the release or in one of the next beta versions.

    Exactly, issue #8745 closed

    "the issue is resolved by the upgrade of Qt to 5.15"

    Hope for the next beta released 😀
