Description Rainer Bielefeld 2005-08-11 11:57:10 UTC
I checked with 2.0 (1.9.m122) German version WIN 98SE: [680m122(Build8941)] and
also 1.1.4 (German) WIN XP: [645m52 (Build 8824)], both with same result: 
"Insert Field" always to layer "Layout", even if other layer is selected.

Steps to reproduce:
1. open new drawing
2. change to layer "Controls" (or any other except "Layout")
4. Menu: "Insert - Field - Date"
   (Same behaviour with other fields as page number, ...)
5. After you inserted, change to layer "LAyout"
6. "Modify Layer", check "protected"
7. move Mousepointer to inserted field
8. click and press key "delete"
   expected: Field text should be marked and can be deleted, because layer
             "controls" is not locked
   actual: Field text can not be marked, because it ist protected by locked
           layer "Layout", and so a it can not be deleted before layer 
           "Layout" is unlocked

This behaviour differs from other "inserts", which always are for actual
selected layer.

Reproducible. Reassigned.

This is the specified behaviour. The layer "Layout" is for controls, therefore
new controls are always inserted on that layer. This was introduced while
designing the application to allow the user to quickly hide all controls or to
disable printing for controls.

Ok, setting to works for me.

Comment 6 wolframgarten 2005-08-11 13:03:42 UTC
Reopening. It is ok that the fields get inserted on the same layer. But it
should be the controls layer, not the layout layer ;-) What else do we have it for?

Reset assigne to the default "".
