Description triton 2010-08-22 13:16:51 UTC
Sometimes connectors are not selectable for editing or re-connection after 
creation and first connection at both ends. In order to make them behave 
correctly, one of the objects to which they are connected, have to be moved.

A sample file.

The example documents does not contain any connectors.

Please add a detailed reproducible step by step description. Thanks.

I noticed the problem while preparing several drawings, starting from the first 
sample file.
Folowing the creation of a new connector, with the sequence:
  1. connector tool selection
  2. click at the first glue point
  3. drag the other end to another glue point
  4. click outside the connector
in some instances [not in all], the connector is either:
  A. not selectable by mouse cliking with the cursor on top of conector, in any 
point of the connector. 
  B. not selectable by mouse clicking with the cursor on top of connector, in 
almost any point excepting towards the first connected end.

To make the connector selectable again, on all the lenght, I had to move [left-
right, for example] one of the objects conected by it.

The behaviour it is not consistent [sometimes new connectors behave as 
expected], and it occurs only during the current session.

After file saving, closing, reopening, all connectors seem to be selectable on 
all their lenght. A second sample file, with only one connector, which exposed 
the behavior after creation, will follow.

Given the inconsistent behaviour, maybe is that it has something to do with the 
shape of the connectors, and with the way the fact that the mouse cursor hover 
over the connector is detected.

Second sample, with one "bad" connector.

I was able to reproduce this but not on a reliable and predictable way. It just
happens from time to time. Reassigning. Anything you can do about it with this

Reset assigne to the default "".
