    Leif,

     

    1. So, to confirm, you'd like the list of Placeholders to be draggable, and when you rearrange them, you want the Z Order to modify automatically? So for example, if you drag Z order Placeholder 0 to the top of the list when there are 10 placeholders, it now takes on the Z order of 9?

    2. Great idea!

    3. Any chance you could include an image of screenshot of what you're thinking here?

    for that Z-ordering thing... I asked for this at least a year ago...

    1. Correct. The placeholder on top should have the highest z order. This way it would be easy to change the z order without having to do it manually. I've had users that have hidden a placeholder behind a larger one and don't have a clue why they can't see it (and they know even less about z order values). This way they could just drag the placeholder up one step at a time until they can see it. Maybe an option to manually set the z order should still be there.

    3. In the screenshot I have added three checkboxes. Default they are all active, but if I deactivate the one on top I can see the content in the one below. As it is now I have to drag the widget I want to see the content of to the top and then back again. This would make it easier to build presentations. It shouldn't affect what's showing on the display. BTW, A visibility checkbox like the placeholders have would also be useful for widgets.

    Ah,

    I see what you mean Leif. There is a Visibility option in each Placeholder, however, it does not hide it in the Editor. It sounds like that is what you want in this case.

    I'll bring this to the attention of the design team now!

    Correct Robb,

    I want this in edit mode only to make it easier to see the content in a placeholder with a lot of widgets in it.
