We all know the Geometry Manager (GM) is finicky but my needs have
been pretty simple so it has worked OK for me.
I have a similar layout on a number of cards in my stack but the items
on each card are different and I didn't pay enough attention as I
placed buttons and fields on each card before I enabled the GM to
either move items up or down or resize the bottom and right sides of
fields. Now that I am cleaning up the stack getting ready for release
I want to align the items better.
However, when I move a button or field without first disabling GM for
it things go crazy with items moving themselves seemingly at random.
This means that it requires a lot of trial and error if I forget to
remove GM before I move them. I don't think there is anything I can
set in Rev to make this not happen (please let me know if I am wrong)
because there isn't anything obvious to me to set.
Is there a way to remove GM from multiple objects at once? If I select
more than 1 item in the IDE the Geometry property is no longer
BTW there is a plugin from F. Rinadli called revGridDisplay available
from RevOnline that makes it easier to put items on a grid which is
going to help lining things up.
