Avoiding disrupting the Feature Manager Tree....

Question asked by Daniel Cane on Jan 2, 2017

Sometimes when I drag surfacing features up the feature tree, I get this message:


Prior to letting go of the mouse click to drag it, I have the blue arrow



Which I’ve always taken to mean ‘OK to move’

Not the black hazard sign which I’ve taken to mean ‘NOT ok to move’



The two options in the dialogue don't offer me what I want, which is to be able to decide to not move the feature after all if it's going to cause trouble. What you might use 'Cancel' or Ctrl+Z for in other circumstances.

The consequence moving it to the wrong place this can often be this awful cascade of broken and disrupted relations that messes-up the model.


So my question is please: is there a way to not move them higher than is safe to do so, OR a way to undo the damage it causes and prevent the chain-reaction of messed-up relations.


Many thanks!!!
