Resizing file tabs behaves badly.
« on: September 14, 2014, 02:10:49 AM »

Setup  a split view, and drag the vertical divider left and right.
The view on the right sometimes goes blank, and sometimes the contents of the window are shifted far to the right.

Its hard to describe really, so I made a movie to demonstrate
Note what happens at the 11.1 second point in the video. - The top right window is split, and the bottom right window goes blank.
At the 15.30 point, the bottom right reappears.
At 17.3 the top right window appears to return to normal.

It's been reported and is definitely on my list. Thanks!

Good to know!


I've also found a problem with moving docked windows around.
If I take the docked tool windows on the left (projects, defs, open, etc) and drag to the bottom dock position, it moves and docks there, but it resizes to take the entire height of the slick window.


Same thing happens when I drag it from being docked on the bottom and make it docked on the left.


Moving it from left to right works as expected though.

Seems to be improved, but it still repros in Beta 5.

Still repros in Beta6 -- first time I tried dragging a vertical split.

Still easily repros in RC1 ... this makes resizing tabs with the mouse pretty useless.



Setup  a split view (Window->SplitVertical), and drag the vertical divider left and right.
The view on the right sometimes goes blank, and sometimes the contents of the window are shifted far to the right.

Seems to have something to do with the left margin. What is yours set to (Tools>Options>Appearance>General)?

0.15
[size=78%]What is the range supposed to be?[/size]

What is the default supposed to be?


I tried a few thing like 0, 0.3, 1, 5.
None fixes the issue.


When I set it to 1 or 5, then this appears to affect the right edge.
Setting it to 5 makes for a very wide right margin - but not really a margin.
It makes for a wide area on the right that is white, text won't render in it but the cursor can be placed it it.
Really it just behaves like the right side of the text edit area gets overwritten with white.


Repro:
Do not use one-file-per-window.
Set left margin to 5.
Select a different buffer to display. (prev-buffer, then next-buffer)
The right side of the window is blank.

Still repros, Windows and Mac, fresh install, fresh state.


This makes resizing tiled tabs pretty hard to use.


See attached.

Wish I could reproduce this. My guess is that it has something to do with the horizontal scroll bar coming and going. Try turning off the horizontal scroll bar and see if that makes a difference (Tools>Options>General>Appearance>Horizontal Scroll bar.

I'm able to easily create a file, split it, and make the horizontal scroll bar come and go just like the video but everything looks great.

Can't repro?


I can't *not* repro it - happens virtually everytime I try to resize tabs.


[size=78%]I get this on 2 PC's and 1 mac, using a clean install on each (as well as installs over old state).[/size]


Does anyone else see this?

Can't make it go wrong on Win 7.  Is the problem identical on all three of your machines?  Do your machines have the same video card maybe?

From looking at your video it seems the unwanted space appears when the horizontal scrollbar disappears.  If you disable the hz scrollbar completely does it still go wrong?

BTW - why do your posts have strange formatting, like [size=78%] ? ? ?

I couldn't make it happen either.
I noticed on your video that the cursor doesn't change shape when you grab the divider. (<-||->). Is this a Mac thing?
