Yes, it appears that if the cantselect of an object is set to true, Rev
won't honor an object creation tool's mouseclick. But it does still
process mouseclicks. In fact, here's a quick and dirty way to get
around this problem. In the jpeg image handler put this script:
if the optionkey is down then
set the cantselect of me to false
set the cantselect of me to true
Cantselect is useful if you have lots of other objects on top of your
jpeg that you want to select by dragging a marque. So when you're
creating a new object, first option-click the jpeg and the object
creation tools will work. Then when you're done, click it again so that
you can select multiple objects by dragging the mouse.
