Text is scrolling out of view
« on: January 23, 2009, 10:55:32 pm »
I don't know if this is a bug, not implemented yet  or i didn't find the setting.

Issue:
often it happens that the whole text is scrolled up that far it is not visible any more,
that is i see the last line only,... thinking "where is the text?"

I think this happens if i close HE while cursor is on the last line?
I find no right explanation yet, because i see this behaviour while doing just other things.... and don't enjoy to search for why this happens.

Related i think is this issue:
If i paste many of text, the cursor is on the end,
and that is often far down and far to the right side.
I find this irritating, though it's by design?
Is there an option like "Paste don't move cursor" .... to paste behind of cursor ... to let the current view at it is?

Hello Stefan,

1)

hat is i see the last line only,...
Is by design. Adopted to see logs, then they are growing to see always end. In case when you are at  the end of document HE tries to store this information, and it overwrite top line saved. But, that you see only last line, I agree not user friendly - I would this that.

. :) I think this is standard. After paste cursor is always after pasted text. Have not seen other bahavior... Or maybe I have not understand correctly?

Version 610:
    * Fixed. Problem with last line scrolled to top of the editor window, after reopening of the file saved with cursor position in End-Of-File.


Pardon, i see no change in this issue.
If i close HippoEDIT i may see still a few of the last lines. OK.
But if i open HE i see (often) an blank page. NotOK
I have right now not investigated when this happens and when not.


-- I think the last line should at least be in the middle of the window.
-- Furthermore i think this could be an optional option, not to bother user they don't need such feature?

I think i will do this whit an script later:

RememberCursorPos = x,y
call Edit.Paste
SetCursorPos = x,y

So i can paste a lot of text (behind cursor) but can continue work on my current place.

Hello Stefan,

can you please find a reproducable example of this and send me? Because by works fine.
And last line is at the bottom of the screen (to give you possibility to see more).
To make this optional, maybe. If would not forget would bilt a flag, but probably if it wors fine this is not necessary?

About the position of the cursor on paste, I can store with copied text cursor position : begining or end of selection if copied form hippoedit. In this case I can place cursor depending of it. At begining or end of pasted text. Would this be better?
