I'm frustrated with a new feature in Flash Builder that collapses packages that contain only other packages but no files. I've set my Package Presentation setting to "hierarchical", but the packages are still collapsed where there are no files in them. This is highly problematic for me when I want to move classes to a new package.
consider this use case -
I want to move class A to package x.y where package x contains no classes and only sub packages.
as the result
but instead I end up with
Is there a work around for this? Am I missing something?
See this thread for other users experiencing this issue.
One solution for an improved user experience would be to expand collapsed packages during a drag action. This would preserve the package collapse enhancement without resulting in the above described issues with moving files to new packages. Thanks.
sorry to clarify - I said I wanted to move class A to package x.y - but I meant - I want to move Class A to package x where package x contains a subpackage of y but no files.
How are you moving the file? Whether your drag/drop the file or select it > right click > Move... you should see a Move dialog pop up that provides you with the fully expanded tree view. There, you can select package x. Are you not seeing that dialog?
