I had significant problems with the Capstone exercise. Specifically with the SAE 8 Solution Build. I was not able to consistently get past US-104. I tried deleting the Virtual Box VM and starting over hoping that this would fix any glitches but the problem persisted. There were two problems: sometimes converting to use the full section editor did not remove the template and I could not create additional dynamic layouts. Other times the software treated the fields in the dynamic layout as a unitary thing. It would not allow me to select individual fields and move them between dynamic layouts. The dynamic layouts indicate that you can drag elements onto them yet when I tried to drag data elements from the object browser to the dynamic layouts it would not allow it. Has anybody had similar problems. I wasted a lot of time on this and am rather frustrated.
What did you mean when you say converting to full section editor did not remove the template? The design template is basically implemented using layouts. So when you convert to a full section editor, it should show you the corresponding layouts used by the design template. You can then edit the layouts manually.
Not too sure what you mean by "treated the fields in the dynamic layout as a unitary thing". The way you drag a field depends on where are are doing it. If you are dragging fields in a full section editor, you need to first select the field, so a blue border appears around it. Then click on the field and hold the mouse button, then drag it to the desired position. If you are using the Design Template, you click on the 6-dots beside the field, and drag it to the corresponding section (e.g. A or B).
