#825 closed bug (duplicate)

Layers can't be quickly rearranged without upsetting the order

Reported by: gburns Owned by: nobody
Priority: major: does not work as expected Milestone:
Component: Project Loading / Saving Version: Trunk
Keywords: layer, layer set, order Cc: msieczka
Must Fix for Release: Yes Platform: All
Platform Version: Awaiting user input: no


When you use a Layer Set and try to rearrange the layers within the set (ie in alphabetical order), under certain conditions the layers are rearranged in an unexpected way. This only occurs when you move the layer too fast. eg. if you have a list of layers:





and you move A upwards fairly slowly to the top, the new list will be in order. However, if you move it too fast, the other layers get out of order. This effect may not occur in a short list.

The problem occurs because when you move a layer, it swaps around, in real time, with every other layer it comes across. If you move too fast, this swapping doesn’t happen correctly, and layers get swapped which shouldn’t. Other software that I have used doesn’t do the rearranging until you let go of the mouse.

Also, it is not a good idea when a layer is being moved, to have sets open up as they are passed. If you try to move a layer past a set with 100 items, the 100 items suddenly appear before you, and you have to pass all those layers as well. I suggest that when layers are moved, they pass sets without opening them.

This is a major problem in trying to maintain layers in order. You might spend 10 minutes putting 100 items in order in several different sets, but if you move one layer too fast, the whole lot get out of order.
