Description joh_walt 2009-08-01 19:36:36 UTC
I've a frame. Opening the frame options dialog, type tab the area relative to
which it's positioned is whole page. Changing this into page text area doesn't
recalculate the number but repositions the frame upon closing the dialog.
The interesting thing happens when moving the frame afterwards. It doesn't stick
where dragged to but to another position which seems to be the one relative to
the page borders again. That's quite annoying.

I made a very small video demonstrating this. You can download it at the above URL.

The problem, that the frame jumps to wrong position when moving is already
tracked as issue 93536. 
The "missing recalculation" will not be implemented. When the reference area is
changed the program assumes that the position change is intended; otherwise the
user ha to change the position value in the dialog by himself.
