Linked image cannot be moved by fill once it's scaled down to certain point.
An image file, size ~100cmx140cm, was imported into ai. Once it's scaled down to around 10mmx14mm, it can't be selected by its fill( even I zoomed really up close), I'll have to move it around by selecting it's bounding box. When I scale it up a little bit like 1mm, it fixes the problem. This is super annoying. Please fix it.
( I'm using the latest version to date.)
there is a zoom level on screen beyond which an object can become too small for all of widgets to be meaningfully operated on by the mouse cursor.
Please zoom in a little so that the mouse cursor can fit in between the bounding bog and be able to select a fill area. this should solve the issue.
If it does not Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.
Thanks for the reply. Although the zoom level wasn't the problem I am facing. I am well familiar with Illustrator and have been using it professionally for over 2 years, and I think it's safe to say that this is some kind of bug.
However, I will take your advice and go to the support page. Thanks anyway.
