Connecting lines over swimlanes immediately disappear

This has just started happening - created a swimlane diagram and added a bunch of objects all interconnected just fine. Returned to it later and suddenly any time I tried to drag in a connecting line between two objects it immediately disappears. Only happens over the swimlanes. Swimlane diagram isn’t locked, cell resize auto or manual doesn’t make a difference. It still works to create a separate connecting line from scratch or duplication and drag it into place but obviously this is very slow. Any suggestions?

Edit: Tested in both Chrome and Edge, and with a cloned swimlane diagram, a new one created from a template or as an object from the Diagramming menu, it happens in all cases.

Hello Mark

I am having the same issue. Do you have any idea when this will be resolved?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Oliver, as you’ll see above it’s a known bug and they’re working on it, beyond that I know as much as you do :) I don’t know if they’ll close my bug (linked above) when they resolve it but it might be worth watching that.

Okay, apparently it’s known and they’re working on it:

 

Hey Mark, 

Thank you for the report!

I'm afraid that currently, there's a bug on our end that causes this behavior. The good news is that the team is already aware of the issue and is currently working on a fix for it. We're bringing our sincere apologies for all the inconvenience it causes! 

We'll definitely keep you updated on the progress. Please, bear with us! 

Warm regards,

It seems to be any table, whether created by a template or not. Have opened a bug here:

https://help.miro.com/hc/en-us/requests/495843

Created a brand new board, added a swimlane diagram and it still happens.

Yes, same things happening now for me even tho I am making from the template of swimlanes with connection lines...

Sounds like it might be a bug then, @Bruno Filipe Ferreira Soares and @MarkHewitt.

One of you might want to open a support request with Miro to investigate this further: Submit a request – Miro Support & Help Center

I can confirm the exact same behavior started happening to me today with one swimlane diagram that I’ve been building.

 

One workaround I found so far was to drag the arrow from one of the boxes inside of the diagram to an empty space outside of the diagram. this will cause the arrow to not disappear. Then drag the arrow to the desired place inside your diagram and it will remain there. This workaround is allowing me to proceed with my work but it is rather annoying.

@MarkHewitt -

Is this happening in just one board? Can you try creating a new test board with a bare bones swimlane diagram with three activity boxes and see if the behavior is reproducible there?

Tested in both Chrome and Edge, same problem.

It’s happening with a cloned swimlane diagram or a new one created from template.
