I seem to have a somewhat strange issue when trying to re-chain my party after having unchained one char.
Whenever I try to connect the char "from the top" (that is, as the first char in the left list of portraits), I get an message about the party being too far away. Even when they stand right next to him.
When I insert him at any other place it works fine.
Rearranging his position afterwards makes no trouble either, it's just when I want to connect him from above the list of portraits.
