activate-find-symbol resetting settings
« on: December 20, 2019, 06:29:33 pm »
I'm not sure what is triggering it, but I use Find Symbol quite a bit and have noticed that the Look in: area keeps resetting back to <Use Context Tagging> and Regular expression. I always have these set to Current Project and Perl REs...

Also, the right side is cut off a little. See attachment.

Not seeing an issue with resting the settings. The combo box is being clipped a bit and the frame looks clipped too. I can reproduce the same clipping problem in 24.0.0.8 and 23.0.2. I guess the clipping issue is very old.

Do you have the find symbol tool window docked or floating?  Is the tool-window always visible or do you create a new tool-window every time you want to use it.  At what point do the settings change and how often do they change?

The settings may be changing when you switch workspaces.  Try to keep an eye open for that.  That is intentional, since you might want to track different things in different workspaces.

I'll file a defect report and put together a hot fix for the sizing issue Clark mentioned.

The window was docked but Dennis is correct; I was not assuming that it would change between projects. It was likely a combination of that and it resetting each time I had SlickEdit crash without saving my configuration. (Which has gone away since rebuilding my SE config from scratch.) I've been off work for a couple of weeks so I'll watch for it again.

Thanks
