    Inconsistent behaviour of images in background parts

      The attached file shows the ways in which the behaviour of the background image changes with respect to object anchors and window size. It would be desirable to have more consistent behaviour.

          Thank you for your post.

           

          I'm not sure what layouts are inconsistent, so let's look at each one individually.

           

          Top Left Anchor - All objects are fixed in position to the top and left sides.  Moving the window downwards will not expand the Body.

           

          Left Anchor - All objects are fixed in position to the left side.  Sizing the window to the right will not expand the layout.  Sizing the window downwards will adjust the layout.

           

          No Anchor - Sizing the window to the right and downward will adjust the objects.

           

          Right Anchor - All objects are fixed in position to the right side.  Sizing the window right will keep the objects anchored to the right edge as you size the window to the right.  Sizing vertically will adjust the objects.

           

          Top Anchor - The objects will keep their position in relation to the top of the window.  Moving the windows downwards will have no effect.  Sizing the window from left to right will adjust the objects.

           

          Top Right Anchor - The top two objects will keep their position in relation to the top and right edge of the window.  The bottom object has anchors set for Bottom Right, so it will move downwards as the window is sized downwards.

           

          Bottom Right Anchor - The objects will keep their relative position from the bottom and right edge as  the window is adjusted.

           

          Bottom Anchor - The objects will keep their relative distance from the bottom of the layout as the window is adjusted.  The objects will float horizontally as the window is sized right and left.

           

          Bottom Left Anchor - The objects will keep their relative distance from the bottom of the layout.  Since the left is fixed, sizing the window to the right has no effect.

           

          Perhaps you can explain the type of behavior you had expected to encounter.
