Highlight ToolWindow Bug
« on: October 18, 2021, 06:40:45 pm »
If you have a bunch of words already highlighted in the Highlight tool window and then toggle the 'Draw box around text' field, all the highlights disappear and do not reappear until you add or remove a new word to highlight.

Additionally, I've found that occasionally if you add a word using highlight_toggle_word the coloring (when using style 'Reverse colors') is sometimes backwards (ie not reversed).  I can figure out what triggers this, and to make matters more interesting, it doesn't do it for all occurrences, but when it happens it's always wrong for the word under the cursor.

First problem.  Reproduced.  Good catch.  Will have a hot fix for this in the future.

Second problem.  I am aware of this, it looks like a bug in our marker drawing code, but, as you have seen, very hard to reliably reproduce and narrow down.  Will keep working on it, hopefully for 26.0.1.
