Touchpad double click vs double tap
« on: September 11, 2021, 11:41:48 pm »
SlickEdit Pro 2021 (v26.0.0.3 64-bit Qt5)

I've been using v26 for a few days and I noticed different behaviour on my laptop's touchpad...
to select a word, I now have to double click (twice click down the touchpad);
previously I could simply double tap (quickly twice tap touchpad without making it click) to select a word.

For sanity check:
- in Notepad++ I can double tap to select a word.
- in this message/reply box I can double tap to select a word.

Is there a setting in VS26 that affects behaviour of touchpad...?

I prefer double tap to select a word.

Thanks  :)

I find that if I slow down my double tap then it seems to work...

hmmm, I didn't previously slow down my double tap....!?!

And this appears to happen only in VS (specifically in text/code window and in Search results pane).

I've noticed the same thing. But sometimes it works but most times it doesn't.

The Defs, Class, References panes work correctly (quick double tap goes to reference).

Reproduced. Seems to happen on Windows laptops without a touch screen.

Thanks for posting about this. Very annoying.

Interesting. My surface laptop works perfectly. My LG gram 17 is horrible. V25 works fine on my LG gram. In any case, we will figure this out. Still tracking it down.

It seems to me that v25 worked fine on my current laptop (the LY C740).
