Potential Bug Closing Editor

Post by rjbill »

I just clicked the [X] in the upper right corner,
and the editor is still open, but the main part of
the window is all white.
All of the tabs disappeared.
There were no files that needed to be saved.

The menu seems to work, but I'm afraid to do anything.
So I did a File Exit, and it quit.

I started the Editor up again and it seems fine now.
I clicked the [X] and it quit normally.

Attached is a screen shot.

This was in version 16.20 Actual 64-bit.

Next time please send me the <AppData>\Roaming\RJ TextEd\Data\DebugOutput.txt file as well.

That file doesn't exist right now. When is it created?

You should find a "DebugOptions.txt file in your program folder. Modify it and save.

E.g.

; DebugOutput
; 0 = No output
; 1 = Output to log file <AppData>\RJ TextEd\Data\DebugOutput.txt
; 2 = DebugOutputString. Use e.g. DebugView to display the output
DebugOutput=1

; LogFileAppend
; 0 = No append. Allways create a new log file at startup.
; 1 = Append. Append new debug data to old ones. NOTE! The file may become very large!
LogFileAppend=0

I edited that file, and it wouldn't let me save it, and asked me
if I wanted to open the Editor in "Administrator Mode",
or something like that, so I did, and the Editor restarted,
but all my open files disappeared, which I hoped would come back
when I quit and restarted the Editor, so I opened the file again
and edited it and saved, and quit the Editor,
and started it up again normally, and
all of my open files went away permanently,
WHICH IS EXTREMELY ANNOYING.

Now I've lost all my file and work context.

I can kind of get it back opening recently edited files.

Fixed the reopen file issue.

I think I've said it before, but sessions are very useful. You can have any number of working environments (sessions) and each session can contain as many files as you want.

I use sessions a lot myself...

Right, but before the current version editor would re-open unsaved files with their content and state untouched, hence there wouldn't be any need for a session (can it handle unsaved files? I don't think so). Yesterday I had the same experience as rjbill, I restarted the editor in admin mode and two my unsaved files were gone (luckily, I made no important edits).

It works with both unsaved and delay opened files, in the next version...
