Support » Plugin: WordPress Slider Block Gutenslider » Editorview – unable to mark text content because of dragging

  • Resolved Dennis Heiden



    great update so far. Just having a problem with editing text content within single slides.

    Create Slider, create 2 slides.
    Add a paragraph or other text block and write some placeholder text.
    Try to mark / select / highlight the text by holding (PC) left mouse button.
    Move the mouse.

    You will see that the slider is moving, caused by a touch / drag event or something like that. This is inconvenient if you have sliders with some text and need to replace that text. Only way to do that is by holding the back key like it’s 1984 or try to glitch until the text is highlighted.

    Remove the dragging option or at least prevent dragging while the mouse is over slide content blocks. IMO those slider arrows should work for slider navigation within the editor view without the drag feature.

    @dennisheiden thank you for the feedback and yes you are right with that text selection issue.

    We ourselves use the swiping in the editor a lot to change slides. We can however disable swiping on certain DOM elements, e.g. paragraphs \ headings, what elso do you think would be important?

    We will investigate on our options and keep you updated here.

    @dennisheiden should be fixed in 5.1.0, can you confirm?

    @dennisheiden does it work for you with the latest version?

    Yes! It’s fixed! <3

    I think most important was paragraphs and headings, because those could be nested children for most of the other blocks which allow child blocks.
