ME: Okay, I’ve got that box selected. Now I’ll just grab the resize control and adjust it.
ADOBE INDESIGN: Hey! I noticed there’s another object a quarter-inch away from the one you had selected! And I’m absolutely sure that’s the one you really wanted to select and resize! So let me just select that one for you instead with no warning, and hey wow! Look at the completely different object resize itself all over the place! No, no! Don’t thank me!
If anyone ever introduces themself to me by saying, “Yeah, I’m an Adobe software developer responsible for object selection,” I’m going to prison for a long time.
