Author Topic: "No more differences" dialog displayed in background when comparing files  (Read 1622 times)

When I compare two file revisions and continually select "Next difference" eventually a pop-up dialog will be displayed showing "No more differences". Unfortunately immediate after the dialog is displayed, the File comparison window will be redisplayed on top of the dialog obscuring it (from the animations it actually looks like it's drawing a new comparison window). Then:
1) Moving the new comparison window to the side I cannot select OK on the dialog until I close the new comparison window.
2) Leaving the dialog alone (ie open in the background) I can still interact with the new comparison window. If I then select "next diff" again, yet another popup dialog is displayed but this renders as you'd expect - on top of the comparison window without the apparent reopening of the comparison window, and can be closed as you'd expect.
So there is a weird intermediate state with the first pop-up dialog that does not give a very good experience

This is using SlickEdit Pro 2014 (v19.0.2.5 64-bit) on Windows 7 Pro

Is this from the backup history dialog?

Please save the attached file locally, then load it (Macro>Load Modules).  This should fix the problem.  Please let me know if it does not.

Thanks

Hm.  I fixed something exactly like this.  Would you be willing to try the v20 beta to see if you still have the problem?
