Insert a dynamic panel as a line item

the following screenshot shows the principle layout of my prototype:

Each column is a vertical oriented dynamic panel and each line element is a horizontal oriented dynamic panel. The line elements are save as a user defined widget.


Now when I drag a new line element into a column and this new element should be inserted between two existing line elements this is not possible because the new element is inserted into an existing line element. Is it possible to lock the line element for inserting other elements? If yes, what shall I do? If no, I suggest to enable to build user defined elements.

As a workaround you can make your vertical oriented dynamic panel wider and insert your 'lines' from the right side. I agree there is an usability problem with widgets that are containers (cells, dynamic panels, data grids) when you drag something over them and you don't want to insert the dragged element into the container but we are already working on it.

Good idea, I changed my dynamic panels for the columns so that the space belongs to this panels and now I am able to insert the line elements! Thank you!
