Reading Window Won't Restore

Postby Cowhead » Sun 07 Nov, 2004 6:25 pm

I found an odd behavior in the Reading window. Assuming this isn't some machine-specific glitch, here's one way to trigger it:

1) Start OT.
2) Open the Reading Window.
3) Minimize that window.
4) While the window is still minimized, close the program.
5) Restart OT and open the reading window.
6) At this point, I cannot restore the window to its resizeable form. It's either minimized or maximized, but nothing in between.

Good news: This problem goes away after restarting Windows. After a reboot, a restored window looks maximized at first, but it is resizeable.

A simpler fix

Postby Cowhead » Sun 07 Nov, 2004 6:43 pm

Okay, I found I can usually fix the problem without resorting to a reboot.

1) Start OT and open the reading window.
2) Click the red Close button on the reading window.
3) Close OT.
4) Restart OT and open the reading window. It *looks* maximized, but I can usually resize it at this point.

Since this situation is probably not all that likely to come up in the first place, and since it can be fixed rather easily, I'l call this an irritation rather than a serious problem. It was sure puzzling when I first tripped over it, though.

Weird Behaviour of Window

Postby Programmer » Sun 07 Nov, 2004 11:33 pm

I am hearing you.

The even better news is that I get exactly the same behaviour you are describing on my own machine, running Windows XP. I haven't got a scooby what is causing it, but will give it all my attention before making a final release.

Cheers, Brad!

Fixed

OK, this is fixed in version 5.3.0.4 of the beta. It was because of the code which automatically positions and resizes the reading notes window where it was last left, which conflicted with the new minimize button on the window.
