Designer Bug - Impossible to move element in canvas within Symbol


#1

Its impossible to move element within a symbol inside designer.

How to reproduce

  1. Create Section called NON-SYMBOL-SECTION)
    • Create Container
      • Create Div Bloick
        • Create Header 1
        • Create Text Block
  2. Copy Original Section and paste it below Section.
  3. Rename new section (SYMBOL-SECTION)
  4. Convert (SYMBOL-SECTION) into a Symbol
  5. Attempt to move Text Block above Header Block in canvas on both sections.

Current workaround:
Use navigator pane and manualy move elements.
