I have a fairly large group of checkboxes that I want to display in 2 columns, sorted alphabetically from top to bottom.
The checkboxes are in a mandatory block.
I didn't want to change the layout for each checkbox and drag them across manually. So I wrapped the first and second half of checkboxes in blocks, gave those a width of 6 and then put them side by side.
But now I cannot get past the mandatory error? Keeps telling me the [block name] is required even when I check all of them?
I was able to reproduce this by having an outer mandatory block wrapping two inner non-mandatory blocks, with each inner block wrapping the checkbox columns.
If I changed the two inner non-mandatory blocks to mandatory blocks, it worked, but enforced the mandatory rule for each column independently. i.e. each mandatory block column needed to have one checkbox checked.
To make it function correctly, I set all checkboxes to width 6, positioned them where I wanted in columns, and wrapped them in a single mandatory block.
I'll check with the Maestro team to see if this behavior is as expected.
I know I can manually drag them across, but it would be really nice if there was an easier way to do this because occasionally forms may have a large number of checkboxes in a mandatory group. So setting all of them to width 6 is time consuming and you then also have to figure out their new order if you want them alphabetically sorted from top to bottom in each column (as opposed to zig-zag sorting).
