Horizontal frames can't be dragged anymore

• Jul 18, 2010 - 08:38
S4 - Minor

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create new score
2. Append vertical frame
3. Insert horizontal frame
4. De-select an select horizontal frame to get simple selection
5. Grab horizontal frame and move mouse

Expected behavior: Frame should move horizontally as the mouse is moved.

Actual behavior: Frame does not move.

MuseScore version: r3292 trunk
Operating System: Ubuntu 10.04


Okay, you can move the horizontal frame by first selecting the frame and next selecting and dragging another element (I tested it with a rest) by holding "ctrl".

As I have seen, the method HBox::isMovable() has been removed, what makes ScoreView::testElementDragTransition(QMouseEvent* ev) think an HBox is not movable. So I guess, you have something in mind, that is not yet finished.

Title Horizontal frames can't be dragged anymore (0.9.7) Horizontal frames can't be dragged anymore

Think this may still be valid?

Using MuseScore 2.0 Nightly Build (5511) - Mac 10.7.3.

Okay, I just checked out and compiled the current trunk (revision 5514) and it's not working: Even more, this version is quite unstable. I had to start it several times, before I was able to get as far as step 5. When creating an inner horizontal frame, MuseScore automatically created a second one, outside the vertical frame. Neither of the frames I was able to move.

Status (old) needs info active

Thanks :).

I know little about it, but something doesn't seem right here:

I follow steps 1-3, but if I double-click, or 'Edit Element' on the rectangle, it disappears.

Could you tell us what the expected behaviour is, and if anything else is wrong generally?

Using MuseScore 2.0 Nightly Build (5515) - Mac 10.7.3.

The expected behaviour is the one in Version 1.2: Dragged frames should move according to the mouse movement (see "Steps to reproduce").

I can't reproduce the disappearing beheaviour described in comment #7 (Ubuntu 11.10).

The unstable behaviour, mentioned in comment #6 seems to be bound to the usage of a remote desktop session (via x2go). If this concerns other users, a seperate bug report should be created, as this might be a regression in version 2.0. (For me it's working with version 1.2.) Me, I'm not too interested into this bug report, as I don't normally use MuseScore in a remote session.
