Dragging and dropping files between different file groups in the legend works sometimes and doesn't work other times. I can put 2 or 3 files into the one group, but no more.

I've worked out why drap and drops seem inconsistent - they only happen if the source layer has the same underlying data structure as the destination. This includes having the same number of fields, the same field names, etc. While I can see the reasoning for this, I'm often just wanting to use drap and drops to make layers all the same colour. Hence this ticket isn't a bug, and I'll turn it into an enhancement for a later version.

Perhaps we need a way to copy 'basic symbology' to other layer files to compliment the current drag and drop which requires very similar layers before it allows a drop.

#2 Updated by Tim Sutton almost 17 years ago

Changed to minor under the following scheme:
  • blocker - bugs that should block the release. Since we are going to release pretty much 'come what may' I would like no bugs
  • allocated to this category without consultation with me and / or PSC
  • critical - bugs that cause the application to crash or corrupt data
  • major - application features that do not function at all
  • minor - features that function but imerfectly e.g. labels placing incorrectly
    trivial - gui useability issues or small issues with the documentation, install notes etc.

Hi all,

regarding the description of this ticket my opinion is that this problem is fixed.

But the title does not make a lot of sense to me, as does not the first comment.

If we stay with the description I would close this ticket.

Leave feedback.

I close this as the the original problem seems to be resolved and for lack of feedback. Reopen if necessary.
