How much money can I give you to PLEASE stop selecting ancestor elements in the outline?
First of all:
But, you see, I AM shouting. This bug is costing me money. Every. Darn. Day.
With that out of the way...
I have already filed another bug about this, but I would be more than happy to double my monthly fee to move it to the top of your list.
When I modify an item nested several layers down the outline, Justinmmind insists on selecting some (unknown to me) number of layers up the tree, which in almost every circumstance, is exactly the wrong thing to do. It hinders productivity and sometimes actually damages my work.
For example, I select a (somewhat deeply nested) item, and use the cursor keys to nudge it a pixel one way or the other. On some — but not all — occasions, this random selection of ancestor items causes the focus to now be on parent or grandparent elements, so that the next press of the cursor key moves things that I did not select.
At the very least, it is annoying, in that if the deepest-nested element — or any ancestor up the tree — is part of a long list of elements, then Justinmind's insistence on selecting ancestor elements moves the desired element out of view, and makes it impossible to continue without fiddling around with the scrolling of the outline.
Thank you for letting me rant.
