Summary: Dragging tabs does not work
QA Contact: extras-qa(a)fedoraproject.org
CC: akurtako(a)redhat.com, andjrobins(a)gmail.com,
Description of problem:
If I grab the "Outline" tab on the far right of the window and try to drag it
into another view in the window, the mouse cursor turns to the standard X
Window System "X" cursor and does not allow me to drop that tab into another
Sometimes the rectangular outline and the correct mouse cursor appears and
allows you to drop the tab, but most of the time it does not. You just see the
X cursor instead. I have run this inside Wine with the Windows version of Java
and Eclipse. It works correctly in Wine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
All components (Eclipse 4.2.2, Java 1.8.0) are the default versions that are
provided with Fedora 22, updated to the latest available with dnf.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Eclipse
2. Grab a tab with the mouse
3. Try to drop it into another view
You get an X mouse cursor and you can't drop it wherever you want to. Some,
very sparse locations allow you to drop it, but they aren't necessarily where
you want to drop it. The rectangular outline that shows where the tab will be
attached when it is dropped is not drawn at all or is not drawn consistently.
The tab can be dropped into any view/location in the Window. The rectangular
outline is drawn to show where the tab will be attached when you drop it.
This may require a video of the incorrect behavior on Fedora vs the correct
behavior in Windows.
CentOS 7 and Debian 8 are showing the same broken behavior that Fedora is so it
is something common to all of these: Eclipse, Java, SWT, Gnome, etc. I'm
reporting it here because Fedora is my best hope to get it fixed :-) Thanks.
