Blocks with repeaters don't collapse

Perch 3 has collapsing Blocks, but they do not collapse if there is a Repeater inside the Block. Eg template:

<!--*IMAGE WITH CAPTION*-->
        <perch:block type="image_plus_caption" label="Image with Caption">
            <div class="row">
                <perch:repeater id="image_with_cap" label="Item">
                    <div class="col-md-4 inline-item feature-box text-center">
                        <p><img class="img-responsive" src="<perch:content type="image" id="image" label="Image" width="720" height="480" crop="true" order="2" />" alt="<perch:content type="text" id="alt" label="Image Description" order="3" />" /></p>
                        <perch:content id="text" type="textarea" label="Text" html="true" editor="redactor" imagewidth="750" imageheight="500" size="xs" />
                    </div>
                </perch:repeater>
            </div>
        </perch:block>

Collapsing happens to the nearest divider. I know some people don't like that, but it's the way it works currently.

Thanks, but I don't understand what is meant by 'nearest divider'.

Just to confirm, this is the issue I am experiencing:

Perch 3 Block not collapsing with Repeaters

The repeater itself should collapse. Have you tried that?

Simon Clay

Yes, I have. I see now what you mean by a divider. Thanks Drew.

Just to pipe up, I posted on the forum about this, find it really unintuitive for clients!
