Screen Bottom Issues

Postby AlanStewart » Sun Mar 30, 2008 6:49 am

And no, these aren't the same bottoms as being featured in that bit of spam that seems to have gotten past your filters.

I've found that if I've got my Zeus window at full height and I cursor down to the end of the file, and the cursor is past the bottom of the screen then I can paste lines of text, or even just hit enter a buncha times and it all disappears off the bottom of the screen. A quick ^PgUp/^PgDn brings it all back into view, but maybe Zeus should scroll that stuff up. Is it perhaps not recognizing that something is *past* the bottom of the screen?

And just now I found that in a file that's not a full screen high, if I try to Alt-LeftMouseClick to select the last few lines of code and release the mouse when it's past the end of the file, then everything is deselected except for the first line.

I hope you can replicate these. If not then I'll try to supply screen-caps.

Hi Alan,
I've found that if I've got my Zeus window at full height and I cursor down to the end of the file, and the cursor is past the bottom of the screen then I can paste lines of text, or even just hit enter a buncha times and it all disappears off the bottom of the screen.

Every now and again I too have also seen this bug :(

I think there is a design fault in the way Zeus detects the end of file mark, where by under certain conditions it just doesn’t know the cursor is off the screen :(

I hope you can replicate these. If not then I'll try to supply screen-caps.

From what I can tell this bug can be very hard to replicate. It will depend on the number of lines in the file, the current line position, the current scroller position, the size of the font used to display the text and the size of the document window. Under a certain combination of these inputs the end of file mark goes a bit astray.

On the few occasions I have seen the bug I have not always been able to replicate it at will :(

And just now I found that in a file that's not a full screen high, if I try to Alt-LeftMouseClick to select the last few lines of code and release the mouse when it's past the end of the file, then everything is deselected except for the first line.

By design, Zeus will not let you select text past the end of file mark ;)

Cheers Jussi
