A number of people have had an issue dragging objects in the PREVIEW screen


I have made a tutorial that covers how to calibrate the PREVIEW screen so drag and drop work correctly.

I have also started posting xLights 4.0 tutorials on the releases page.

in The summer I will delete the 100 or so video tutorials i have made for xLights 3.0.
I will first have to re-record tutorials for all the subject areas: importing from LOR,HLS,Vixen,LSP,
Papagayo, Descriptions of each effect .etc.


With over 100 videos, i think you should go to the releases page to find the current videos you really need.


thanks

Excellent! Great tutorial. I was getting quite frustrated last night and turned my computer off, planning to have another go at it with fresh eyes tonight. This tutorial will make a huge difference when I go back to it. Thanks a heap Sean.

Dan and I worked on this and it SHOULD be fixed for next build and not matter what size value you have set. The only thing to be aware of is we talked about autoscaling the window contents to fit the size you enter. This stretches the background image maintaining proportions but the downside is your element placement might get messed up. I know some people have spent a lot of time perfectly placing things so I'm expecting to hear some backlash. I was able to move my stuff back in about 5 minutes but I didn't mind because with the new capability I was able to define my Preview area larger than I had it before.
