#1993 Problem previewing shapes/sprites
Author: user STA20
Date created:
Type: bug
Visibility: Everybody
Assigned to:
Labels: Scrollbars
State: upgraded Help

> What steps will reproduce the problem? Open the attached file, try to preview Shape 24 or Sprite 72. > What is the expected output? What do you see instead? I expect to see the graphics, instead I see a blank preview window and possibly sliders on it. > What version of the product are you using? Is it "nightly build"? Which operating system do you have? v.18.3.6. nightly 2515 > Please provide any additional information below. If the problem is related to a SWF file, attach it here, otherwise we can't help you. This has been happening since a few versions ago. I think it happens to symbols with negative coordinates, then FFDec positions them out of bounds, instead of forcing 0,0 coordinates on the viewport I guess.

Please try nightly 2517, it should be better.

Indeed graphics are always visible now. TBH I was hoping the older functionality would be preserved too: graphic would stay at the place I moved it, useful when editing tags of a sprite in particular. What it does now is to reset to default position every time I click on another tag in the sprite. (all of this is for graphics that are too big to fit into preview window)
