Projects window issues
« on: September 21, 2017, 05:16:15 pm »
The project window does not change colors with the edit windows.

Also I added a file to a project and it was placed out of order. This may be due to it being in a subfolder of the main folder of source files.

It is supposed to. Try a clean config. If that works, then I'll need to reproduce it because we have never seen that problem before.

Using the command line vs.exe -sc  and have the same result.

Do you need any further info?

I think you and I are having a disconnect somewhere. I just have to figure out where. In the meantime somebody else will address the file order problem.

Regarding the file inserted out of order issue:  How was the file added?  Did you File > New and add to project or was this an existing file and added to the project through Project Properties Add File/Add Tree or right-clicking on the project tree using the Add File/Add Tree?   And if you close the workspace and re-open or close and restart SlickEdit is the file correctly sorted in the tree?  Trying to figure out how it got it that way.

I have a standing project, then I added a new file.

Upon restart, the sort order was still incorrect.

The added file is in a subfolder.

Re: Color
When you change to the Dark theme (via Tools>Options>Appearance>General>Application theme), and hit OK (or Apply) the background/foreground colors will change for everything (toolbars, menus, tool windows, etc.) EXCEPT the editor window(s) (where you edit your source code). The change will be very obvious.

It sounds like you are saying that, after selecting "Dark" for the Application theme, hitting OK/Apply does nothing. I wonder if the option is somehow not "sticking". After you select "Dark" and hit OK, bring up the Options windows again. Does the Application theme still say "Dark" or has it reverted to "System"?

Re: Project Sorting:  Thanks for the extra details, that was key to reproducing the issue.  It's not a new bug with this version, but I'll file a defect and try to get it sorting correctly.

That changed the system to a dark setting. I was not understanding the difference between theme and color. I would also expect all windows to match "color" as opposed to "Theme" that would affect the change on the system colors.

I think it's a little clunky.

Thank you for helping me resolve the issue.

Thanks for finding the issue with sorting, Lee.
