When moving a block in the Navigator the dragged block is not always aligned with cursor/drag preview


When dragging a block to move it in the Navigator, the dragged block does not always keep up with the movement of the cursor/drag preview box. The expected behaviour is that it will “stick” to the cursor more. This seems to happen when the cursor initially moves quickly upwards causing the block to be shifted inside/outside of a containing block. When this happens, the delta remains at this extended distance and does not snap back to the cursor for the duration of the drag.

Screenshots, screen recording, code snippet

Environment info

  • WordPress version: 6.4.2
  • Cwicly Plugin version:

I noticed the same behaviour. If I recall it correctly only in later Cwicly versions / 5

Hi Community
we have a strange layer movement some times…but more often then ever…if we grab one layer and move it…the previewed move layer is too far away from the grabbed element…this is sometimes even much further then in the image…this way we can not really work with the layers…its very difficult and result in errors…we use Firefox latest…and also tested Chrome latest with the same problem. Does anyone know what this might be? we work on a iMac 27 i7 64GB Ram SSD 3.8Ghz…
thanx so much

Relatively minor issue in the grand scheme of things, but moving items around in the Navigator isn’t quite 100% bulletproof yet. See my screengrab below:


When containers are collapsed, it’s really difficult to move items in between. I have to get a bit creative.

Hey @owynter.

This issue has already been confirmed here.

Thanks. Was just running and gunning when I made this.

No worries, same here sometimes :raised_hand:

Fixed by the Navigator enhancements in Cwicly 1.4.1:

So much cleaner and simpler when dragging with the new drag insertion indicator.

Thank you @Louis and the Cwicly team!
