EPiServer CMS 8 - the suggested types seem to ignore block type restrictions


When using the [AllowedTypes (typeof(SomeBlock)] on a content area property. The "Suggested types" category when creating a new block seem to ignore restrictions set here entirely, it suggest (and allow me to) create whatever block types are currently "suggested" regardless if they are allowed or not.

The "regular" list of blocks correctly follow the rules I setup. Also when drag'n dropping existing block, only the allowed types can be dragged to the content area.

Anyone experienced anything similar?

Hi, there is a bug reported for the issue: and it should be included in the next CMS.UI release.
