Moving items with a hidden frame

  • Idea

  • Implemented
It would be nice if items within a hidden frame would move when the frame is moved.
I don't see why this property should change depending on whether a frame is hidden or not.
Anyway, this would be slightly more tolerable if one could change a frame type after creating it (I have suggested should be an option in other feedback).

Hi daniel, if it helps you can capture an invisible frame within another frame (and all the contents) - move it and then delete the unwanted fame - job done.

We wanted to keep one frame that doesn't group - this is what our users asked for. I realize we can't make everyone happy but the workaround that John suggests above is easy and doable. I hope you think so too.

I definitely understand that it's hard to please everyone, however I would have thought the orange zebra by itself would have solved this problem. It should mean there isn't a need for a frame specifically intended to not group.
Another alternative could be for hidden frames to have the orange zebra by default but have the ability to toggle to the blue zebra which would group items within the frame.
Just my 2 cents, thanks for your replies.

I've absolutely no idea what the orange zebra is about, but I agree that all frames should include their content. I do not see the point of putting an invisible frame around something, and when wanting to change the presentation, not being able to move the whole frame with its content.

If the need is there, please create two invisble frasmes: a grouping and a non-grouping one.

I found another -not too bad- solution. When inserting a frame, make the frame the same color as your background. This is of course only possible with equally colooured backgrounds...
