My first experience with the "new" editor, and I have 2 minor annoyances;
- adding an item with the video widget puts the item at the bottom of the playlist, seems we can no longer choose a particular position in the list.
- when moving the item to the preferred position in the playlist with drag & drop, the item is copied, not moved, so there are 2 instances of the same item in the playlist. 

Or am I 'holding it wrong'

Hi there,

That is indeed correct about the Widget Placement issue, it will be added to the bottom of the Playlist, and you can drag it to where you need it to be.

However regarding the duplicate item in the Placeholder, I cannot recreate that same behaviour, as you can see here.


Are you using Google Chrome?

Yes I use Chrome, and it works properly today, just one of those things I guess, thank you!

I have reproduced the problem, happens on a Mac (OSX 10.9.5) but not on Windows (8.1) both using auto updating Chrome, but unfortunately it doesn't happen everytime.
This morning, after adding a video item to a playlist, saving & publishing, when I went back into the Video gadget settings to turn off "show video controls" (which IMO should be the default) and then hit save in the Settings pop up, a duplicate video item appeared at the bottom of the playlist. Tested a bit and when any changes were made in the widget settings I got a duplicate item.  This afternoon I logged in to RiseVision and tested it and got no duplicate items.

Interesting! I'm on 10.12, (Sierra), and I have not had this issue, and I don't recall seeing it when I was on that version previously. 

Any chance you could create a quick video that shows the issue and email that to support@risevision.com? I'd like to show that to the team and see if we can determine if we have an issue.

Thanks!

I wish placeholders had drag&drop option or at least changed their place according to their 'Z-order' value. It gets really messed up just after few revisions with 10+ placeholders.

Darius,

You can drag and drop Placeholders in the new Editor, or am I missing something?

Darius,

Just to confirm, you are doing this at https://apps.risevision.com, right?

This quick video shows me dragging and dropping Placeholders: https://goo.gl/dfvuRx, let me know if you are having trouble doing the same.

Thanks!

Robb, by saying 'drag&drop placeholders' I had in mind moving them in the side panel where the list of placeholders is. It would be nice to have them arrange by their Z-order in there to have real representation of their place in the grand scheme of things ) It would be absolutely outstanding to be able to drag&drop placeholders the similar way placeholder's items can be and have their Z-ordering changed at the same time. I hope it is not to much to ask )

Not important, but FYI I never move placeholders the way that dude in the video did.

Thanks for that clarification Darius, I see what you mean now. Right now that isn't available, but as always, we will update everyone if it becomes available.

Also, that dude in the video is soooo cool!

O.P. here, problem reliably reproduced on both Mac (OSX 10.9.5) and Windows (8.1). How do I attach a video to a post?
When in an Edit Playlist Item window, opening the Widget settings, editing settings or not, then clicking Save to close the Widget settings window, then clicking Apply to close the Edit Playlist Item window, adds a duplicate item to the Playlist.

Upload it some place (dropbox, youtube etc.) and give us a link.

Aha! Wonderful! I was able to reproduce it following the steps in your video! Thanks so much!

I'll get a defect logged for this now.
