[4.7.1] UMG Dynamic Resizing Problem

Hi there.
I hadn’t opened my project since 4.7 Preview 3 and found that UMG elements that dynamically resize create a bunch of various artifacts, as if neighboring widgets are being properly adjusted, but a copy of the former version is also there. Maybe it’s a painting/redraw issue.
Attached are three images showing an example. The test was a simple ComboBoxString with four items of increasing length and a text box butted up against it, both inside a horizontal box.
Here are the Alignment settings:

ComboBoxString – Size=Auto, Horiz. Alignment=Horizontal Align Fill, Vert. Alignment=Vertical Align Center
TextBlock – Size=Auto, Horiz. Alignment=Horizontal Align Fill, Vert. Alignment=Vertical Align Fill

The hierarchy for the UI is:


      • -’—Vertical Box
          • -’— Horizontal Box
                • -’— ComboBoxString
                • -’— Text Block
