Accidentally dragged widget out of group; Top/Left set to (0,0); NOT undo-able

Dave shared this problem 4 years ago

While trying to change the order of an widget within its group by dragging (because Edit > Order > menu items are all disabled — an unreported bug/undocumented misfeature), I accidentally dragged it outside the group in the outline. The widget's Top/Left values were reset to 0,0.

Undo put the item back into the group, but did not restore its location.

This is very possibly related to: How to copy and paste an item within the same container without wasting all of my time [/b], as the behavior (and the steps required to fix it) are practically identical.

Hi Dave,

I haven't been able to reproduce this.

Does this group have anyhing special (it's inside another group, dynamic panel...)?

Do you have an example where this happens always?

Trying to reproduce this I've detected misbehaviours but not this one.




I don't remember exactly what component(s) I was moving when this happened three days ago. At this point, I can't reproduce it again, either. I wish I'd taken a screen shot ... at least I'd know where in my prototype it happened.

Feel free to close this one or set it aside. If it happens again, I'll report it more carefully.
