Two identical frames, but the left-and-right constraint works only with one. What's wrong?

Hi everyone,

I ran into this strange behavior. In my design, I’ve copy/paste frames. In the source frame, a child frame has left-and-right constraint. When I tried to modify the same child frame’s constraint in the copied frame, the option appears disabled. A bug?

The way I by-pass this currently is:

  1. select the children and frame (creates new frame)
  2. for the newly created frame, set the constraint to “left-and-right”
  3. select the parent frame and ungroup
