Feature #964: === GUI ===
GUI: Improve drag-and-drop construction of a MultiLayer.
|Status:||Resolved||Start date:||01 Dec 2016|
|Target version:||Sprint 33|
At the Hamburg and Garching tutorials, many users have been experiencing problems while dropping Layer on top of a MultiLayer. It will be already good to increase size of areas around a MultiLayer, were such drop is allowed.
- Status changed from New to Sprint
- Priority changed from Low to Normal
- Target version set to Sprint 33
I suspect there is a deeper reason for the observed problem, namely the mixed nature of the current sample construction part of our GUI. For multilayer and layers, it is a schematic real-space representation, whereas for everything else it represents abstract hierarchical relationships. I suggest to come back to this question when we have some real-space representation of the sample.
For the time being, the proposed solution (larger drop areas) should be the only action here.
Assigned to sprint because I suppose it can be done easily and quickly.
