UPDATED: I’ve now been able to reproduce the bug described in item (2) using 2.5.0 b7 as well.
I’ve been working with carousels quite a bit, and have noticed some strange things happening in 2.5.0 b5.
Carousel deleting when deleting things nearby
I often don’t use the caption within the carousel, but do put some text, typically a small paragraph, just below the carousel. I’ve noticed that sometimes when I go to delete that text, the carousel itself also deletes. It seems to happen more when the text is very close to the bottom of the carousel. Sometimes I’m able to recover, but at other times I can’t find a way around it and have to rebuild the carousel.
Asset images appearing in bloc backgrounds randomly when pressing cmd-s
I’ve now reproduced this error, for at least one case demonstrated in the animated .gif, where I first italicize some text and then click outside the paragraph bric. Then when I press the cmd key (as the first step of doing a save, cmd-s) an image I’d recently placed into a carousel appears in the background of the bloc, even though the asset manager is not even open. I then go to the edit menu to undo, and it disappears. In the .gif, I repeat by clicking outside the bric again and pressing cmd again, and a different image appears.
After posting this, I noticed the same thiing happening fairly regularly whenever I finish an edit in a paragraph bric, and click below it, followed by a save (my usual practice, cmd-s). Also, I noticed that the image was not just from the carousel, but even some of the stock photos supplied in the asset manager.
When adding many images to a carousel (say 10) I need to go to each slide and then scroll through the image gallery to find the needed image. As I do this any image I mouse over will (at least briefly) appear in the carousel (or sometimes nearby regions) because of the way Blocs works – I find this very distracting, and wish there was an option to have Blocs only place an image when you make a definite decision, like clicking, double clicking, (or right clicking?). I know there’s some cool factor to not having to drag things with the mouse all the time, but there can also be an unintended annoyance factor as well, so it would be nice if there were a preference for this behavior. On the other hand, I’m also getting used to it.
