Page-absolute positioning doesn't apply to contained controls.

I've created a layer that represents a modal dialog. On that layer I've added a tab control with 3 tabs, and each tab has various controls.

The layer is shown when an icon is clicked on the main screen, and is positioned using the page absolute positioning.

If the layer is not EXACTLY placed on the screen in design-time where it will be placed at runtime, then flipping to another tab causes the contained controls to be displayed in their design-time positions.

To summarize, the page-absolute positioning transformation is not being applied to contained controls.

Hi there,

I have fixed this and pushed a new release (the same version number, so you'll have to simply head to the website to install again).

Thanks for letting me know about it!

Thanks for the quick response, but I seem to have lost the ability to see and create layers with this update. Should I roll back to the previous version?

Hey, check out the right-bottom corner of the UI, the layers have moved now there, near the Pages tab. Sorry about the confusion!

Ok, thanks! I didn't notice the new tab down there.
