Tool windows don't work (Linux)

(1/3) > >>

Tool windows don't allow keyboard or mouse interaction.  They can't be typed in nor any selections with the mouse.  If the main SE window is moved, the tool window moves along with it, but it can't be moved on its own.  All other windows work fine.

The Find and Replace dialog box doesn't respond either.

Does this also happen if you start the editor with a default configuration?

Is the options dialog active?  This should not affect tool windows, but when you have the options dialog open to the Toolbar Customization page, the toolbars are switched to a special state for adding and moving toolbar icons.  Go to Tools > Options... and hit Close on the options dialog.

I assume that starting the editor for the first time after installing starts with a default configuration.  If so, yes, it happens.

The Options dialog is unaffected, and I can move the window and change the options with no problem.  Toolbars work fine, as well as being able to move icons into and out of toolbars and setting up custom icons.  However, if a tool window is open (such as Find and Replace) while the Options window is open to the Toolbar Customization page, the tool window is still not responding, even after I hit Close.

I don't know if you noticed in the SlickEdit information, but I'm running SE on WSL2.

To start the editor with a default configuration, from the shell:

--- Code: ---{slickedit_install_dir}/vs +new -sc /tmp/defcon1

--- End code ---
That tells SlickEdit to start a new instance and create a new configuration directory under /tmp.

I did not notice that you were using it on WSL.  That may be relevant.  You could also download the Qt5 version and see if that works better under WSL.
