Drag- & dropping fields in the field list dialog off by one

D&D'ing a field in its list dialog ("Fields…") does not position the field at the line indicated but instead one above, or all the way to n-1 if trying to reposition a field to the first position. I guess it's a bug from not counting from 0?

(BTW, the fake upvotes in the questionable decks reported back in April have only gotten more.)

    I've passed the report on to the PR author, thanks. The upvotes issue is still on the todo list - I just don't have the time to deal with it at the moment I'm afraid.

    I can't reproduce this on both 2.1.26 and the latest master on linux. Can I ask you try try doing this without addons (press shift when you launch Anki) and see if there is still a problem?

    BlueGreen: it looks like there are two problems:

    • the top is also treated as the viewport, so dragging to the top puts it on the bottom
    • the line indicating the drop location doesn't reflect the actual location - if you hover close to the middle of two elements the line is drawn between them, but moving the cursor further up the upper element before releasing doesn't seem to update the line to reflect the fact that it'll be placed above the upper element

    Actually it doesn't even seem that complicated - it just doesn't match the line for me

    Thanks for the detail Damien. I figured out what the issue was: Looks like at the time I wrote the code, I didn't realize that moving a field from above and from from below should be treated differently. So moving it downwards worked, but moving it up didn't.

    Submitted a PR with the fix. Sorry about that.
