[Mx5] Use app store widget in Snippet

I've create a snippet and included an app store widget inside of the snippet. Then I get the following error message: "Widget must be placed inside the context of an entity, for example in a data view." I'm curious if it is possible to use app store widgets in snippets. The default Mx widgets (textarea, textbox) seem to work fine and we configure an entity for the snippet, so a context could be available. So my question is, is it possible to use app store widgets in snippets or is this a bug?

Hi Kilian,

You are right that the Modeler should allow add-in widgets that need an entity context on snippets that define an entity. This is a bug in the 5.0.0-beta8 release, which will be solved in the next release.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
