|Summary||0008100: Two-Way Arrow for line-handle movement is broken|
|Description||Mousing over the handle of a vertical or horizontal line gives three different mouse icon possibilities:|
1) Angle arrow: action is to change angle or length of line
2) 4-way arrow: action is to move location of line
3) 2-way arrow: action is to change length of line without changing either angle or location
1) The 2-way arrow icon is very difficult to 'find.' Often I need to view at %400 percent just to get it to appear.
2) The 2-way arrow always functions as if it were 4-way arrow, changing the location, rather than the length of the line.
|Steps To Reproduce||Draw a line. |
Mouse over the line handle until the 2-way arrow appears. (May need to view at %400 to get it.)
Click on the line handle with the 2-way-arrow icon and attempt to drag to increase/decrease line length without changing angle or line location. Line will change location, not length.
|Additional Information||I can only get the 2-way arrow to appear at all if the line is dead-horizontal or dead-vertical.|
I notice that the two-way arrow is unreliable for manipulating many objects, such as text frames, image frames, bezier curve frames, etc. The 2-way arrow often refuses to appear, and then when it does, about a third of the time it unselects entirely when you click on it, and a third of the time it switches to a 4-way arrow, sometimes changing icon and sometimes just changing function.
Also, the behavior can be moderated by clicking and then waiting a moment before attempting to actually move the point. So far as I have noticed, the straight line is the only object for which the 2-way arrow is completely unusable.
I can't get the mouse to change states to 2-way arrow.

"I can only get the 2-way arrow to appear at all if the line is dead-horizontal or dead-vertical." <= I can't reproduce this
||@PeterBenedek can you confirm ?|
Tested Qt 5.7; r21500
No arrow (0008100.gif). It is a closed hand, but if the line width = 10mm (or more), everything changes (0008100_2.gif).
This very confused.
