Positioning stuff on a panel always moves it off the panel

I start my layouts with a dynamic panel so that I can force it centered on the canvas. After a recent upgrade, everytime I try to position something like an image map on the panel by dragging with the mouse, it moves the object off the panel onto the canvas. Is there some way to lock editing so that I am always working on the pane?? This never use to happen.

ok - the app is pretty much unusable now. I can't even draw something in place on a panel. It always defaults it to the canvas. I sure hope there's something i'm doing wrong.

Hi Scott,


In order to place new content into panels, you need to "unlock" them first with a double click or from the context menu (right click) -> Edit Content.


We changed the behavior of dynamic panels. In the past, we had many clients with your issue but just the other way around: their content always ended up in a panel.
