How to define hierarchies through dragging elements?


Very new to subform (joined today), and I’m still getting a hang of the CAD-style ux. Not sure if this is a bug, a feature request, or what, but from a UX perspective, I don’t understand why I cannot drag this button into the “button container” as a child. Any advice would be appreciated.

Update: I realize now that in order to do this i have to go to “Insert > Component > button” when i have my parent element selected. I think i should be able to manage hierarchies manually without having to do this.

also, once I perform this action, i see nothing. why??


Hey Daniel— It’s kind of hard to tell what’s going on here from just these screenshots.

Could you provide me a sample Subform file (you can DM me a link if you like), or possibly do a short screencast that shows your problem? That’ll make it easier to get to the bottom of this.
