What type of file are you editing?

Does it happen with a clean config?

vs -sc <temp-config-dir>

And it is blank with a new config as well, always need to click mouse once in there to see anything.

I'm using a C++ file.

joecar: If you left click once in the "Defs" window, does the content come up?

Right-click, navigate to the Filters menu, and select "Show all tags".

Verify that the document was recognized as C++ (maybe you think it is, but it is really an extensionless header file).  Quickest way is to look at the Document > Select Mode (...) menu.

Is is really blank, or does it indicate that the file is too large?  (one line message at the top of the Defs tool window).  You can double-click on that message to force the Defs tool window to update.

Already had Show All Tags checkmarked.

Already selected, Document->Select Mode (C/C++).

Looks blank to me; there is no message; happens on all files, including smallest .c file which is 914 lines of C source code.

Doing this, the Defs tool window shows my functions ok.

Please post your user.cfg.xml file. I'm guessing something in there is causing a problem.

When I created a clean config and then replaced the user.cfg.xml with yours, the Defs tool window still updates for me.

Try exiting SlickEdit and deleting your 22.0.0/vslick.sta file. Then start SlickEdit. SlickEdit will create a new vslick.sta when it starts.
