Error description

  • Problem
    Copying objects to another object and making them appear at
    level below the currently selected object in the target places
    the newly copied object in a different position depending on the
    means of copying: drag and drop v copy objects. drag and drop
    documents that if the target object already has children the
    copied object becomes it's first child. Using 'copy objects' the
    copied object becomes the last child.
    
    To Reproduce
    - create modules A and B
    - create a hierarchy like this in module A
    
    1. ?obj heading?
    1.1 ?obj text?
    1.2 ?obj text?
    
    - in module B have a few objects with object text only
    
    using drag and drop
    
    - drag an object from module B to object 1 in A
    - select copy ? below from the pop up menu
    - the new object is placed as the first child of 1
    
    using 'copy objects'
    
    - select an object in B
    - go to tools ? functions ? copy objects
    - select A as the target module
    - open A and ensure that object 1 is selected
    - for the 'copy' option select 'current object only'
    - the new object is placed as the last child of 1
    
    Similar behaviour will happen even if module A is not open - it
    will be copied as the last child of the object which is current
    when the module is opened.
