|0016860: Can select several elements in document structure view, but cannot move several elements to other group
|In Scribus it is possible to group objects.
It is also possible to group groups of objects.
In the document structure view it is possible to:
- move (via drag&drop) individual objects between individual groups, or ungroup them by moving them up to the highest layer
- select multiple items at once (irrespective of their groupings)
From all this there arises the expectation that it should also possible to move the selected items equally to how it is possible to be done with a single element. When trying this, one of two things may happen. Either:
- when attempting this, nothing happens and all elements become deselected.
- when attempting this, it seems like the elements were moved, but in reality they are not. For example, immediately after that saving the document, closing scribus and re-opening back again will show that the elements are still where they were.
Not really a major thing, but since we're working with groups a lot, it does get annoying when we want to move many items between groups.
