Description Rainer Bielefeld 2005-08-11 13:11:35 UTC
This is a "spin off" from issue 53212. I have some difficulites to understand the actual design, that inserts "Fields" always to layer "Layout", even if an other layer is selected. That is unexpected, and unexpected always is bad. Per comments from cl Thu Aug 11 04:43:07 -0700 2005 in issue 53212 Layer "Layout" is for "controls" (what ever "Controls" might be), but what for layer "Controls" might be? There seems to be no sense in inserting such things like "Author" into the normal workspace. These things should be in a soparate layer, where they can easily be hidden, locked or what ever the user might want. So please change design so that "insert fields" will be be to the currently selected layer, what IMHO is the expected ebhaviour.

I have already reopened the bug for the controls being inserted on the controls layer. Reassigned.
