Yahoo! imagery background layer: manually set alignment is temporarily lost on browser window resize

Keywords: yahoo_imagery, yahoo, resize, alignment Cc:


When editing in Potlatch, the background layer appears to manually set alignments temporarily when the browser window is resized (even when the editor tab is not currently selected when the resize happens). The background layer appears offset by an amount which seems to correspond with the magnitude and direction of the resize; I have too little information to say whether it also corresponds to the resize's gravity; certainly it happens for top-right expansions and bottom-left expansions.

Click-dragging potlatch's edit area restores the alignment to what it was before, so clearly this is just a temporary glitch. However, the user might be tempted to shift-space-drag the background "back into alignment", resulting in them losing the manual alignment they set up. Which would be an annoyance.

Observed at:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a manual bg alignment with Shift+Space and drag
  1. Resize browser window. On redraw, alignment appears offset.


  • Pan the map to restore the manually-set alignment. Previously-set alignment is back.

"appears to manually set alignments temporarily" in the 1st paragraph should read "appears to lose manually set alignments temporarily".
