Why does Command + tilde freeze slick edit on Mac OS X?
« on: July 07, 2010, 10:35:45 pm »
I'm running Mac OS X 10.6.4, and SlickEdit 15.0.0.6 for Mac, running in X11.

For all other programs that I know of, typing Command + ` (tilde) will switch between child windows inside that program.

When I do that inside slick edit, thinking I can switch between open files easily, the entire SlickEdit application freezes. I can't even click the X to close the SlickEdit window. I have to close X11 and then restart. This is really annoying when I have unsaved work and I forget I'm in a program that can't handle this simple sub-window switching task.

This bug was present in SlickEdit 14. I just upgraded to SlickEdit 15 and was hoping this bug would go away, but sadly, it hasn't.

Does anyone else know anything about this? Is there a work around? I'd be happy if I could just prevent SlickEdit from freezing, or if I knew of some way to recover from that freeze without loosing any work.

Hopeful for a solution,

Jon

This is not a SlickEdit bug, but a bug in X11.  It's fixed in the latest build of xquartz.  Also, a work-around is to minimize all X11 windows (from the Window menu), and then restore them.  That will unfreeze the frozen windows.
