2018.2.1 Launcher issue!!

Postby silence00 » Thu Aug 29, 2019 11:58 am

FG version: 2018.2.1 ( ... flightgear)
OS: Ubuntu 16.04

Add-ons launcher tab got a new look. I tried to reorder my Custom scenery folders. So I hover the mouse over the right side of the list, then button appears. I thought I need to press and hold left mouse button on it and move mouse up or down. But instead of one line changing its position on the list my whole screen is being scrolled up or down. How do I change folders order? I know I can delete records one by one and add them in my desired order but I don't think it is the way it should be done.Appvalley TutuApp Tweakbox

You just have to click the up and down arrows, not try to drag them. I do agree the shape of the button doesn't make it intuitive.

Actually, that sounds like a bug I've always seen in the launcher but never really thought about till now - the scroll seems to be reset whenever you click on the up / down arrows as I get moved back to the top of the add-ons pavr? Also, on my old hardware I never managed to get it to work, it was only on my new laptop that I either figured it out, or it started to work and I never found out why...
