Search Dialog Moves Beyond Visible Area
« on: August 24, 2011, 06:39:50 PM »
After some deliberation on my side I have decided to post this into the feature request/suggestion section because it does not constitute a bug for me, more on what is this in a moment.
So we all know that the search dialog moves as you click "Find Next" if it happens to overlap the text it is looking for, a very cool feature, thank you, but at times it moves itself beyond the visible portion of the screen (because the searched text is at the bottom of the editor), now here is the thing: the search button becomes sunken below the "waist line", hence to reach out to it I need to pull the search dialog up using its title bar, then finally click the "find next" button, or "find all" or whatever, not a big deal, but looking for text all last night this made me very tired pulling the search dialog up every other second or so.
I guess it will not take too much time to improve the search dialog positioning by taking into consideration the visible portion of the screen when moved.

Hi Arthur,

I think this is a bug, which was probably introduced recently, when I have updated the logic for better support of second monitor...
I will check this. Will be available as in 1.49 update some when as in 1.50 alpha.

thanks!

BR, Alex.

Hi Arthur,

I have tried to reproduce it, but without success. On my side all was working as designed...
The dialog has taken into account bottom screen border (also task bar position) and was always visible, and moving above found text, but not below if there was not enough space...

Maybe you can provide a screenshot explaining the problem or just give me a step by step instruction how I can get to the point with a problem.

Thanks a lot in advance.

BR, Alex
