Jquery sortable stange mouse offset

I'm working with the jQuery sortable plugin( 2 connected lists) and have a strange bug. When you drag the picture the mouse is above the dragged item

Html for one of the lists

<ul class="flickr_key_ul ui-sortable">
<li><img style="display: inline;" src="http://farm3.static.flickr.com/1039/548804108_a8816f42f5_s.jpg" alt="Up the Ginnel" title="Up the Ginnel" class="flickr_image"></li>

sortable configuration:

horizontal: {
helper: "clone", // Instead of dragging the real image a copy will be dragged
connectWith: ["#flickr_sidebar ul"], // To be able to drag and drop an image to another image gallery they need to be connected
cursor: 'pointer', //change the cursor when dragging
appendTo: 'body', //When dropped the images need to be appended to the image gallery where they are dropped
containment: rootel, //Make sure the user can't drag the images outside the widget
revert: true, // if the user releases the image ouside the dropbox it'll return to it's original position
zIndex: 9999

Anyone know how to get the mouse in the middle or something ? (cursorAt doesn't work)


i had the same problem with mouse pointer offset when changed left alignment from {float:left} to {display:inline}. the solution is:

cursorAt: { top: 0, left: 0 } 

this works for both sortable and draggable:

$( "#someid" ).draggable({cursorAt: { top: 0, left: 0 },...})
$( "#someid" ).sortable({cursorAt: { top: 0, left: 0 },...})
