#4071 Designer & main program stops working after moving the column in a table


After changing the order of the columns in a table, I go to the designer tab and notice that most of the lines which indicated the relationship between two tables are missing. When trying to move a table, it couldn't be released at the dropped location and moving around with the mouse. Click on the structure tab or any other tab won't help and it seems that the main program is also (dead)locked.

    I was forget to mention that when this happens, you can't do any thing, even logout/login. I have to drop all the links between the tables, drop all the data and table and recreate them using import function. The priority may be raise to a higher level due to this, unless there is another way to work around. Thanks.

    Cannot reproduce your problem with phpMyAdmin 4.0.6 and the employees sample database. I used the "Move columns" dialog to move the dept_emp.dept_no column, then got back to Designer and had none of the problems you describe. I am running under Iceweasel (Firefox).

    Please attach a small export of your tables' structure so we can try with your environment, and tell us which browser and PHP version you're using.

    Hi Marc,

    Thanks for looking into the problem. However, it was happened with 4.0.5 version in IE v10, I'm sure.
    Since then, I moved on with newer version and currently using 4.0.9. I've check this problem in 4.0.8 and 4.0.9 and can't reproduced it as well. Please close this one.

    Thanks, Henry.
