Moving Groups Bug

Nope I was simply using the menu option.

I really feel sorry for the devs here. They just need to understand that I have a penchant for stumbling over any kind of bug. I was installing a copier yesterday, and found 2 bugs where turning on an OCR option appeared to change the filetype from PDF to TIFF, and then disabling the OCR option. Turns out the settings stick but the web interface is buggy and is not showing me what the settings actually are. Also the Check Connection button for SMB shares always reports a connection failure, but the scan to file works anyway. <sigh> It's not easy being me.

Were you using the Project Browser? I thought I'd try it because the app browser doesn't offer drag-relayering, but the same thing happened to me when I dragged a control upwards. It popped into the group above it in the list.

Nope it's false. Just checked.

Sounds to me like 'relayerGroupedControls' may have been set to true? Otherwise I can't imagine it would be swallowed whole by the next lower-layer group.

Not sure if this is a bug actually. I recently selected a data grid and moved it back one level, and it disappeared! Select Grouped was off. I discovered my errant datagrid had been added to the group one level back, and because the boundaries of that group did not encompass the data grid, and the size and position were locked, it "appeared to disappear".

Is this what is supposed to happen?? If so, then BOOOO!!! It's my humble opinion that nothing should be added to a group unless I explicitly tell it to be. Moving an object backwards and forwards should only happen within the group the object is in, or else outside of any group.

What think ye?
