SlickEdit® / Re: Color picker alpha control bugs
« Last post by Clark on May 29, 2024, 10:01:32 PM »
When you say "1) cannot be edited with keyboard" what exactly do you mean. Do you mean you can't edit the alpha value? This is a limitation for now. Would be nice for this to be editable and to even support hex values.

With "2) slider creating huge decimal values", are you talking about the "Alpha:" slider floating point numbers (comically large).

3) Bug. Good catch

4) Unfortunately this is not hot fixable. Bug is in C++ code.

Good catch on the two colons.

Good enhancement suggestions.

SlickEdit® / Color picker alpha control bugs
« Last post by Brandon on May 29, 2024, 08:22:05 PM »
In the color picker and testing with an HTML file, the Alpha value:
1) cannot be edited with keyboard
2) slider is creating huge decimal values
3) the alpha value is inserted incorrectly as #AARRGGBB when it should be #RRGGBBAA
4) it is rendering as an incorrect color in the editor because of #3
Also,
1) there are two colons :: after the White label
2) it would be nice if this UI could be interacted with in hex
3) it would be nice to show the value that is going to be inserted under the Output field (formatted based on the Output selection format) before hitting OK

Thanks for the detailed reply.  For chrome, Tab Manager Plus is similar to Panorama and there's also a dropdown button to the left of all the tabs that lists all tabs for all chrome windows.  AdBlockPlus works for me on YouTube.  I'm wondering if what you see as a Chrome tab crashing is just google temporarily unloading the tab to reduce memory use - since Chrome is a memory hog - you can turn it off in settings, performance, memory saver - if that's what it is.  For privacy, I don't mind websites or google tracking me but I wish there was a way to automatically accept cookies instead of being asked all the time.

This is a limitation. Turn off View>New Line Chars.
The New Line Char is implemented as a physical character-like insert. When you move the cursor after it and type a character the Previous New Line Char is deleted making it look like it was inserted earlier in the text. In other words, the New Line Char is not implemented as an overlay on top of virtual space (softwrap display is done this way).

It's in your SlickEdit configuration directory. Go to Help>About SlickEdit to get your configuration directory location.

Well, so much for Finder being able to find files.  Anyway, here it is...

(I don't know about Chrome.  I stay away from that bad boy.)

Why do you stay away from Chrome?

  • Tabs.  In my job as a software developer, it's common for me to have 50 to 100 tabs open at one time.  This can be difficult to deal with, even when putting tabs into groups.  On Firefox, I use Panorama Tab Groups which has a special screen that shows me all of the groups with each tab in the group showing a thumbnail.
  • YouTube videos.  Chrome doesn't allow me to view YouTube videos while using an ad blocker.  All I get is an error message when I try to watch one.  Firefox, on the other hand, has better ad blocking so that YouTube allows me to watch videos with an ad blocker.
  • Stability.  Chrome has a tendency to crash a lot on me.  Usually it's one or more tabs that crash but occasionally the entire program goes away.  I don't have that problem with Firefox.
  • Privacy.  My daughter says that Chrome has privacy issues.  I don't know about that one.  But I know better than to argue with her on this so I'll just take her word for it.  She uses Firefox as well, and she was the one who got me to switch over because of the YouTube issue.
The list above is for my Windows computers at home.  I just got a new job where they issued me a MacBook so I figured I'd stick with Firefox.
