Description Jiri Kopsa 2006-09-04 17:53:14 UTC
See URL.

The visual feedback when an artefact is being dropped as a child or to an
incompatible target should be improved. The explanation or error message could
be moved from top of the editor (editor assistant) closer to the drop target.
Also a visual aid that an element will be added as a child could be expressed.
Also this pattern could be reused accross all the editors (to be evaluated).
Comment 1 Girish Balachandran 2006-09-13 21:58:51 UTC
All the bulb messages and error messages that used to appear on top of the
namespace in the DV will now appear near the dropping location itself. Fixed on 9/13
Comment 2 Jiri Kopsa 2006-09-19 10:53:58 UTC
There is still something to be fixed: If an element comes from a different file
and user tries to modify it, the message appears in the editor assitant, not on
the spot.
