Error description

  • Problem
    Ordering of copied objects is unexpected.
    
    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 (text1,
    text2, etc)
    
    using drag and drop
    
    - drag and drop all objects (via selection) from module B to
    object 1 in A
    - select copy ? below from the pop up menu
    - the new objects are placed as the children of obj 1 and there
    order has been preserved
    
    This appears to be the 'correct' behaviour.
    
    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 display set'
    - for the 'new position' option, choose 'new object below'
    
    - the new objects are placed as the first children of obj 1 but
    their ordering has been reversed
