Using certain tools unhighlights layers which cause beep when panning.

    There is "selected" and there is "active".  Those are my names, Capture One may have some other official term for them.  Selected means you can do something to the layer itself, e.g. delete the layer.  Active means adjustments with the brush icon will occur to that layer.  A selected layer is orange.  An active layer is highlighted with a whiteish (greyish) bar.   A layer that is neither active nor selected  is white text on the normal dark background.

    Of course Capture One has to confuse the issue by keeping the background layer orange when it is otherwise active.  Sometimes.   Other times it is highlighted with the whitish bar, too.  Perhaps an active layer is also sometimes orange.   If so I haven't noticed.

    In general when it is not orange something else is selected.  This usually bites you when playing with points on a curve.  It can be very hard to deselect a point once it is selected.  Hitting the escape key will do nothing more than beep at you.

    Hey Marco,

    Thanks for the reply. I understand the "selected" and "active" differences. So that annoying beep you mentioned when hitting escape, is my problem. If I'm zoomed in on a layer, and the layer is "active or greyish" and I hold space to pan, I get that same beep. If I'm zoomed in and I click on the layer to highlight it in orange (or hit TAB though that doesn't re-highlight the layer) and then hit space to pan, no beep. If that makes sense. 

    So basically if grey and space to pan, beep. If orange and space to pan, normal, no beep.

    Thanks again!

    Most every time that happens to me it's because I accidentally set a point on the curve.

    I did have an issue with beeping while panning using the space bar while zoomed in once -- but the panning still worked.  It was an annoyance, but didn't stop me from working.   That was with some previous version of the software.  If my memory is correct a quit and restart resolved the issue.

    Yeah, panning still works. It just acts as though it's detecting a stuck key (in the PC world anyway). I just find it highly annoying. Sadly, I've gone as far as reinstalling C1 at this point and it hasn't stopped. (admittedly over the top of the previous version, I could try removing it completely and installing it again, I would just hate to go through that and possibly losing any custom settings I've done.)

    I checked my records... I actually reported that as a bug to Capture One.  I titled the report "Space bar pan keyclick issue".

    Thanks.

    I guess I'll do the same. Thanks for help :)
