B6: Linux: diff dropdown appears/disappears
« on: October 01, 2014, 11:43:16 am »
When entering the path it drops down and disappears.  It offers no ability to select a matching path.  Typically the path will drop down and allow for selecting the current closest match.

Running: Ubuntu 12.04 x64

Are you seeing no drop down when you type a path, or that it isn't matching the path in the Path 2 text box?

I've attached a video which I think better shows the problem.  The dropdown shows quickly then goes away.  I have noticed that the "Find and Replace" "Look In:" dropdown works as expected while you type.

Interesting.  I see it, but I can't reproduce it so far.  Do you have focus follows mouse or any other interesting options set?

No, just default Ubuntu settings--not a fan of focus follows mouse.

Does it consistently behave this way or does something get it into this rut and restarting the editor pulls it out?

What happens if you move the mouse pointer out of the way of the combo box?

I made sure the mouse was out of the way and it made no difference.  Also, it always happens, it is not a progressive problem.

Can you send me your config?  Can you send me a "map" of what your directories are like?  I don't need your files, just directory and file names.

Do you want my exported settings?

Also, the problem occurs with any files/directories.  You could simply try: /opt/slickedit

Sorry for the slow reply, I'm tracking through some old things here.  Yes, could you export your settings and post them?

Just to be clear, do you want an export of all settings?

I guess so.  I don't have any idea what setting might be causing the problem.

Hm.  I still can't reproduce it.  Let me see if I can dig into the completion stuff and send you something with some debug.
