Summary0002377: Attempting to drag handles activates higher z-order objects.
DescriptionIf I have two objects: ObjA in underneath ObjB. If I activate ObjA and one of it's resize handles is on top of ObjB, when I attempt to grab the handle by clicking on it, ObjB becomes active instead.

I suspect this is a simple bug to fix. When the mouse is over a resize handle and the user does a mouse down, the view should not perform the code to look for and activate objects.
TagsNo tags attached.

This has bugged me for ages too.

It works, but you have to hold down control. What's worse is that the cursor changes to indicate that it'll use the handle even when it doesn't.

As for "simple bug to fix"... look at ScribusView::mouse...Event(...) then tell me that :S

Kool. I've added the key combination to the wiki, and yes I've seen scribusview.cpp ;-) I've had a bit of a play with that code, but being a Java programmer and having no C++ experience, I'm weary of leaping into such a core block without knowing exactly what it does and how. ;-)
