[Glade-users] UI issue

I have three issues to report with the user interface to glade-3:

1. I was using a vbox with 10 items for a complex layout. I discovered
that I needed one more item in the vbox, but I needed it at the "top"
of the vbox, not the bottom. There was no way to get the new entry in
the vbox to show up at the top, or anywhere else, really. It insisted
upon showing up at the bottom.

For this case you should be able to right click on the *immediate*
children of the box, and use menu options "insert after" or "insert before",
some situations used to make this impossible (i.e. all box children have
children), this is no longer the case because now I am showing all
possible context menu actions also from the inspector (so you can
use the inspector also to insert before/after immediate box children).

2. Suppose I have a vbox with ten entries in it. I go to the tree view,
select all ten items in the vbox, cut them, the paste them back into the
vbox. The widgets are now all in reverse order instead of the order I cut
them. If I do it again, the order reverses back to the original ordering.

Really, that sounds actually quite nice if you ask me, maybe even
we could reverse a list and get it in order, just for the record, multiply
selected widgets dont have a predetermined placement in a target
container, I am surprised there would be any consistant ordering at all.

3. If I fill 3 contiguous regions out of 5 entries in a vbox with stuff.
I can't cut out the three things and place them back into the vbox at a
different start location.

yeah same as point above, pasting widgets into a container only
gets a list of its available placeholders and pastes them, on the
other hand, you should be able to use SHIFT (or the toolbarbutton
for drag/resize widgets), and safely drag your box children from
one position to another.
