Since upgrading to 7.3 from 7.2 it is now harder to move fragments on a content page

    Details

      Description

      It seems like there is a regression in UX when upgrading from 7.2 to 7.3 in that the fragment toppers on a content page are now harder to drag around the page. It's both harder to actually action the drag event and since the user has to now click to get the topper, it becomes much less easy to discover how to move a fragment to begin with.

      See comparison GIF's.

      Steps 7.2
      1) Fire up 7.2 add a content page, some containers, fragments and widgets
      2) Hover over a fragment to discover how to move it
      3) Click and hold the drag handle can move it
      4) Click and hold the title for example "Documents and Media" or "Video"
      5) Note the drag is actionable on the title which is good.

      Steps 7.3
      1) Repeat same test
      2) Click on a fragment to discover how to move it (worse UX)
      3) Click and hold the drag handle can move it (Same UX)
      4) Click and hold the title for example "Documents and Media" or "Video"
      5) Note the drag can't happen on the title (worse UX)

       

      Expected:
      UX from 7.2 to be restored, in that to make the fragment easier to use for a content editor it should have the topper appear on hover and the topper title should action its ability to be dragged to a different location.

      Actual:
      Worse UX and product is harder to use.
