=What did I do?=
=What did I expect to happen?=
When scrolling down the rows of content in the backoffice, the "Choose type of content" dialog should appear centrally on the screen, as a modal dialog.
=What actually happened?=
Having added a few content rows with a variety of content, the dialog is no longer visible when clicking "Add content".
Attached animated gif demonstrates the issue.
Having quickly checked in Chome DevTools, the dialog's
.umb-overlay-center class has it position absolutely, meaning (for me at least) it's positioned relative to the grid editor rather than statically within the view. When I disable
position: absolute, it falls back to
position: fixed which makes more sense - although it's not centered to the grid editor, it is at least is visible when scrolled further down the view. See attached images 2 and 3.
I may have missed something as part of the upgrade to do with caching the backoffice frontend code. But it's all working with the updated UI so I'm guessing not?
Edit: Updated title Edit 2: Updated description with an anecdotal check of the dialog's CSS positioning and screenshots
Hmmm, that's very annoying!
I think it might have been caused by this fix: https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/commit/422be31c4e90bca382eb01588b6291e3c72d2be5
Can you try to update to the attached grid.html in
~\Umbraco\Views\propertyeditors\grid\grid.html - then you will need to change the version in ClientDependency.config to bust the browser cache.
Let me know if that fixes it!
Yep that fixes the issue. Reverting the change to grid.html from commit https://github.com/umbraco/Umbraco-CMS/commit/422be31c4e90bca382eb01588b6291e3c72d2be5 resolves it.
Thanks for the quick check, we'll get it reverted for the next version, apparently this fix did more harm then good unfortunately.
No worries, thanks for the quick initial response and a spot-on RCA.
Hi @sebastiaan I've seen this on a few project today as well, http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-10689
I've tested this out on a 7.6 project, and is seems to be an issue there as well. This might not be a new issue?
Hi @email@example.com, it looks like @sebastiaan added fixes on this for minor versions 7.7.x and 7.6.x so you'd be right. I've marked http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/U4-10689 as a duplicate - hope that's okay.
@firstname.lastname@example.org Ah! I didn't see that one. Yes, this will be a problem for both 7.6.12 and 7.7.5 at the moment, they both contain this changed grid.html file.
I was just about to report this issue too since I now in v7.6.12 don't see the content selector / grid editor selector - only when page has none or very little scroll.
@sebastiaan what about cloud, is there a hot fix soon? or should we just wait to the new release 7.7.6 is done? right now is a major block for creating content
Hi, I'm not familiar with Umbraco Cloud but we came up with a quick fix over at: https://our.umbraco.org/forum/using-umbraco-and-getting-started/89214-grid-editor-add-content-window-display-issue
Might help out in the short term.
