When I click on a draggable object the liveSnap function triggers (and object jumps for no reason as a result).

How can I prevent it from triggering on click?


For example in this codepen when I click object it should NOT change it's color, it should change it only when I start dragging.

I found a workaround by checking "this.isDragging" flag. But it feels like a bug for me, you can close this topic if you think otherwise. Thanks!

I'm not quite sure why that'd be considered a "bug" for liveSnap (where any interaction would implement snapping), but based on that codepen wouldn't it be much more straightforward to just use an onDragStart? That only gets fired when you actually start dragging, so a click won't trigger it.

This is just to prove that liveSnap triggers on click, the actual issue is that, for example, if you have a grid or a guideline and click on object to select it - it snaps to the grid or a guideline when it should stay. liveSnap is a part of dragging motion, it should not be triggered on click

I would have to agree with @Payman. That's also what it says in the docs.

allows you to define rules that get applied WHILE the element is being dragged
