Category:Custom fields
Target version:Candidate for next major release
Resolution: Affected version:4.2.1


The position of each custom field enumeration is integrated as hidden
field in the corresponding index.html.erb file.

When iterating over all enumerations for a certain field, the iteration
is done with an index information of the array, what contains all enumerations.

This index information again is used as the value for the position.

This is wrong, since the (array) index starts counting from zero whereas the position
numbers start counting from 1.

This is fixed now by increasing the position by 1 as stated below.
