SlickEdit® / Re: Cannot adjust erratic Window Left Margin
« Last post by Siggy Schwarz on May 18, 2018, 12:05:01 am »
Until my PC was upgraded recently I have mostly used VS version 7. So I cannot say whether this is new. On this new machine I decided to finally switch over to this new version.

No, it does not happen with every search. I only had the feeling that it might be related to searches until I had one case where it noticed the issue directly after hitting 'y' on the 'search wrap/continue' dialog (it still is a little bit a fuzzy observation).

Yes, the Window Left Margin set to 0.0 did not help either.

Strangely, when I tried re-creating this issue just now, using a .h file, the .c file that showed the gray strip, now no longer has the gray strip!

Under tools/options/editing/bookmarks I have all switches set to OFF.

When I installed V18 on the old PC, I let it import/migrate the config from V7. Could that be the problem?
Going back to an empty config and re-applying everything would be a bit tedious.
But then, my colleague, who has I think V19, also has the problem, but he has line numbers on all the time and hence does not notice this. (Checking with my colleague's V19, not all of his editor windows have the extra space after the line numbers).

Looks like you stumbled onto a sizing bug.  What do you have your dialog font set to (Tools > Options > Appearance > Fonts > Dialog).  You might want to reduce the point size it if you have changed it to something very large, temporarily so that you can explore all those options, at least.

If you have not changed the dialog font within SlickEdit yourself, then this might be due to a Windows font scaling issue.  What settings are you using for?

1) Windows > Settings > System > Display > Scaling
2) Windows > Settings > System > Display > Advanced Display Options > Set a Custom Scaling Factor
3) Windows > Settings > System > Display > Advanced Display Options > Change text size > (did you change any of these?)

I experimented with numerous combinations of these settings and was not able to reproduce the resizing issue you are having.

With V22, if I execute the "one window" command in the Window menu, I get left with one tab only, like you.  I'm not sure that's supposed to be happening because I still have several buffers open.  Do you use the "Files" toolbar at all  - are all your open buffers listed on the buffers tab?  If so, try selecting several of them and hit return  - you might see a bunch of file tabs appear in the main window.

How long had you been using slickedit for before this problem turned up?

oh, ok.  I found a slight logic error; aka bug.  I didn't really test it properly, sorry.  Here's another version.  This time I've added some debug code - if it still doesn't work you could uncomment #define DEBUG  -   it results in some output to the slick debug window when a save is done.  If a buffer is closed you should see "xupdate cbquit2".  If a buffer is saved you should see "xupdate cbsave". If the current cursor line or column changes you should see "xupdate timer save" 3 seconds after the cursor stops moving.  Actually if a buffer is closed you see all three messages but too many is better than too few, maybe.

Is it completely random  - does it not happen with every search?
In tools -> options -> editing -> bookmarks, you could try turning off "navigating search results pushes bookmark".
If there's a bookmark anywhere in the file I think you get the wider gutter for the whole file  - so just because there's no bitmap immediately visible doesn't automatically mean the gutter should be narrow.

Is this a new problem or has V18 always had this problem for you?  If it's a new problem, try running slick on a new empty config folder
vs.exe +new -sc c:\some-empty-folder
and maybe export / import your settings.
Another thing you could try is deleting/renaming vrestore.slk - with slick closed  - and back up vrestore.slk first.
Have you tried 0.0 for the gutter width?

Just had this again. It happened when my search (using ctrl-F to find the next occurrence) hit the end of the file and the continuation dialog popped up and I hit 'y' to continue from the top. Then the gray strip on the left hand side appeared. There is no bitmap or whatever in it, it is completely gray.
SlickEdit® / Tabs Dissapearing
« Last post by indy042 on May 16, 2018, 10:22:10 pm »
Good afternoon,
I am suddenly having an issue that is driving me nuts. I used to be able to open as many tabs in SE that I needed. I do a lot with text files etc and having multiple tabs to move around in is essential. Lately, the tabs are just disappearing. They are there then poof. I suddenly can only have one tab open and any others disappear. I have tried tile adjustment under the Window header and that worked for a time, but now it is just greyed out. Is there some setting that needs to get cleared out occasionally or so?
any help is greatly appreciated!
--Edit... I found the File Tabs tool bar which helps some. In the attached file, the move manufacturer map.sql is the tab and if I had a second window open (maps.sql) it would show as a second tab.

I wanted to resurrect this as I stumbled across something that might be related. Apparently there's an issue with the default version of IBus on Ubuntu 14.04 which could cause input problems.

I don't know if this is the underlying cause of the problems I'm seeing, but I've upgraded the ibus on my machine today and hopefully the issue goes away. Figured I would post in case someone else is unlucky enough to see this issue.
SlickEdit® / Perl regex problem
« Last post by jporkkahtc on May 16, 2018, 06:59:14 pm »
I found regex pat1 doesn't match case 2, but does match case 1.
pat2 matches case2 but not case3. shows it should match both.
Python re also matches.

Code: [Select]
pat1: "([0-9]*?)(18)"
pat2" "([0-9]{3,4})(18)"
case1: "4918 116"
case2: "514918 116"
case3: "51918 116"

Thanks, joy. The files in the list of buffers I close before killing vs still come back in the list.
