Description David-john Burrowes 2004-03-17 20:20:49 UTC
This is merely an aesthetic issue.

When I drag an item around in one of the
explorers, I am shown a fairly thick black line to
indicate the drop location when I'm between other
nodes. In contrast, I'm shown a light blue
highlight when over a node.  I think it might be
nicer if the black line were the same selection
color as the highlight.

This really came to my attention when I was
dragging something that wasn't allowed to be
dropped in a particular location (e.g. drag
anything in the Runtime window, or in some places
in the project system). In these cases, the blank
line is more prominent (to my eye) than the "can't
drop it here" indicator on the pointer.
