Steps causing the bug to occur

  1. make a linear gradient layer
  2. add receive mouse drags on layer
  3. observe started drag port
  4. always reports 0,0

Have you found a workaround?

Prevents me from creating a scaled control value based on the mouse drags


The Started Drag port fires an event with the layer’s center point — the layer’s center point, not the position where the mouse was clicked.

Can you explain further what you want when “creating a scaled control value based on the mouse drags”?

Ah! Maybe it just me zoning out a bit. I was trying to get the values from a X/Y position within a layer. Thought I had done it with that node before, but maybe I misremembered :)

We’ll label this “not a bug” then.
