I don't remember making a "point bone" being a problem before so I'll point it out here.
While a bone is selected, and the create bone tool is active, clicking and releasing in one point over the top of a image to create a point bone will not create the bone and instead select the image.
Clicking and dragging from said point will continue to create a length of bone. But I've gotten quite use to placing point bones over the top of images that I intend to attach. Is there a new intended modifier key to remain in bone create tool mode?
