Move elements in object browser often does not work

I just noticed that from time to time I cannot move objects inside the object browser up or down the list.

 

The insert marker does not appear. With objects then it seems to work.

Can you attach the file with a screen shot showing what object you are trying to move and where you are trying to move it to?

 

Thanks,

Any

Here is a screencast:

You will see only solid objects seem to move - mesh objects not at all.

Hi Claas,

 

I can see the issue on the model you sent earlier – you’ve found a legitimate problem here, many thanks for raising it! I’ll log this with the development team and we’ll get this looked at.

 

Much appreciated,

Jake

+1 on this issue, I come across it enough to be frustrated by it.

Hi Anthony,

 

Just to double-check - the issue we found on Claas's model is specific to mesh bodies. Is this where you were experiencing the problem as well? If not, let us know, just in case there's potentially something else to follow up here.

 

Thanks!

Jake

Hi Jake,

 

My use case example would be...

 

A solid body inside a component that is then mirrored.

 

Create a mirror of the component so you have two instances inside the mirror subbody folder.

 

Try to move the two bodies down into the root bodies folder in the component, as the mirror sub folder seems like overhead in my general workflow, and I always delete them.

 

Quite often, though not the dominant experience, you can highlight and drag the bodies, but the move hints within the browser tree dont appear, and nothing happens on mouse drag release.
