Smooth scrolling setings do not stick
« on: May 03, 2022, 10:29:52 pm »
Running SlickEdit Pro 2021 (v26.0.1.0 64-bit Qt5)

When I set Options/Appearance/Scroll style/Smooth horizontal scroll (and vertical) to "ON", the setting remains for up to a day or so, but reverts to off.  I can't seem to correlate the un-set, but I inevitably notice it.  I tried not touching the options after I set them to ON; the settings still changed without my intervention.

I'll try to find an associated action, but for now they just revert from ON to OFF infrequently, but randomly.

Have you seen any Slick-C stacks?  There are some things that change this and change it back.

No stack popups.  No other problems editing, navigating, etc.  I just notice at one point arrow-cursoring up or down causes the "non-smooth jump," and the settings are set to OFF when I reopen the tools dialog.

The problem persists in v26.0.2.1 64-bit Qt5, Build Date: April 15, 2022, and is happening with greater frequency.
Are you saying you cannot reproduce this?

To narrow things down slightly, do you do a lot of drag and drop?  That's the one place in the code where we have to save and restore the scroll style in a less straightforward manner.

Also, when the scroll style settings are reverted, precisely what settings are they left in?

No, don't do much drag+drop.  Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V kind of guy.
Here is what I have set now.  I'll send a capture if it changes.

Dennis, I'll be glad to run an instrumented version of SE that monitors the config.  You can add an event button/command that I could invoke when I notice the change.  Let me know.

And there it is.  I did not go near the Tools/Options dialog before seeing this.

During a session this week, I did highlight text and drag it to another location.  After this, the smooth scrolling settings convert to "off" after EACH page up/down.  Normally (with no dragging) it takes many minutes for the problem to manifest.

I've put some debug code in where this gets set, so if it changes I'll see.
