I just discovered Synfig a few days ago. I was hoping to use it in place of Adobe Flash for a class I will be teaching. Unfortunately, I can’t get past the very first tutorial and here is why: I am unable to make multiple selections and move several object together. In fact, I can’t move anything except one circle at a time. I can’t move a rectangle either. I can’t seem to rotate a circle or a rectangle. I tried to follow through on the suggested “note” in regards to the problem with the circle tool – I went to “file / Input Devices” to disable devices, but there were none there to disable anyway. This is a windows 7, 32 bit machine. What could be the problem? I am already ready to give up and find another alternative to Adobe Flash.
