Drag and drop has always been just within a single Navigator window -- not between Navigator windows, and not to/from open stacks. That changes (a bit) today! You can now select any set of controls in a Navigator window and drag them out of that window and onto any open stack. Detailed documentation will come tomorrow, but there are notes below.
I'm very much looking for feedback on the visual and physical method of dragging. I put some effort into making it as intuitive as possible, so let me know what works for you and what doesn't. More is coming... You can get Navigator here <https://www.dropbox.com/s/bcqxxriwzzjcm45/navigator_5.zip?dl=0>. This update also fixes the issue of Navigator's behavior stacks polluting the project browser and Navigator. I'm sure glad I wrote the export/restore code -- I've done it about a dozen times now. regards, Geoff Notes: When you drag out from a Navigator window, the drag image will represent all the controls being dragged: their size and position relative to each other (their rects). This can be any selection of controls from a Navigator window, so controls from different cards, different stacks, it doesn't matter. Available stacks to drop on will be highlighted. Drag over a stack, and the focus narrows to that stack, showing the top-level groups in that stack. Drag over a group, and that group will be highlighted, and on and on. You can drop on a stack, or into any group on that stack, just by dragging into it. All the controls will be positioned in their same relative position, wherever you dropped them. Holding the control key stops the entry/exit from groups and stacks, so if you want to add something to a group, but place it outside the group's current boundaries, just drag over the group to highlight it, then hold the control key and drag to wherever you want to place the controls. This also means you can place controls outside a stack's window by highlighting the stack, then holding the control key while you drag back outside the stack. All controls are copied at present, even controls from the same card you're dragging to. Dragging a card onto a stack copies the whole card (from another stack, or duplicating it within a given stack). Dragging a stack onto another stack makes it a substack of that stack. Dragging it onto itself makes it a mainstack. _______________________________________________ use-livecode mailing list email@example.com Please visit this url to subscribe, unsubscribe and manage your subscription preferences: http://lists.runrev.com/mailman/listinfo/use-livecode
