Drag objects from 'Quick Add'


#1

Despite using the software for weeks, I keep finding myself trying to do this, so it must be a good idea :slight_smile:

When typing in the Quick Add box, a great list of objects appear below, with the intention that the user clicks on one, and then moves their cursor to the left of the screen to click/drag the object into place.

What I would prefer to do is simply click/drag (move) the object from the drop-down list onto the canvas. Is this possible to code?

Thanks

You are not the only one, my friend.

We will talk about this at the next support meeting and see if there is something we can do about it. :slight_smile:

Good to know.

Perhaps at the very least, the new object could be added to the top-right of screen closer to where the mouse cursor is.

I agree with the top-right of screen positioning rather than top-left, for the same reason โ€“ youโ€™re looking in one place on the screen and then your eyes have to go hunt for the place where the component has appeared.

On large monitors in particular, this adds a tiny bit of effort.
