Suggestion for Interface

Unread post by alanmcd » Sat Aug 24, 2019 10:18 am

When working with slides, the slide list seems to re-position disturbingly.
Especially when deleting a slide, it (the next active slide) always goes to the bottom rather than the list close up from the bottom leaving the previous slide where it is and the cursor occupying the next slide in sequence.
Also when pasting text object from one slide to another the slide jumps to put the currently selected slide at the bottom. It's very hard to keep recognising that it hasn't jumped somewhere completely different.
Can this be made so the slide list only collapses from the bottom up and leave the previous slide in the same position?

Hi Alan,

We confirm the problem and will fix it with the next update.
However, you can already download the 1.1 beta, which fixes it.
