Hi Arthur,

thanks for a bug report. Reproduced and fixed with 1.45.700, published today. History coming soon.

Best regards,
Alex.

Thank you!

Well, one note though, the form occupies nearly the whole monitor and seems like going beyond its boundaries, I am pretty sure I do not see some commands, I suggest, thus to make it the same size as the Shortcuts Hint card.
If you remove many "not so popular" commands especially those starting with Ext... like ExtColumnPageUp the card would naturally shrink to approx. the shortcuts card form size.

Hm. Yes, I can think about your suggestion, but this is also partial solution...

Surprisingly this does not happen when no files are opened.

Yes :), because crash was during updating of the InsertDateTime command, which is only relevant when you have any document open.
All disabled (no active in current context) commands are filtered. This is why list with closed documents much smaller.

Also to Arthur, I have removed all Ext commands from the list.

Best regards,
Alex.

Hi,

as of beta 703 I do still see the Ext commands, moreover Alex, the dialog forms for both the Shortcut Hints and Commands Hint share the same caption "Active Commands" (confusing, suggest to name them exactly what they are), and my final whine is that if I click on the form caption itself (that being the Active Commands text) it brings Shortcut Hints if say I am on the Commands Hint form (I hope I am clear enough here ;)) From Shortcuts Hint it activates auto-completion which probably is by design, but a little known feature perhaps.

Hi Arthur,

yes, you are right, I have done changes for Ext in another branch, and forgot to integrate them. Would be added next beta.
With titles... Generally it is same dialog, but with different filters. That is why names are equal. But I can change them.
With click on title. It is a bug, it just executes top-left item. Would be fixed.

Thanks for a bug report.

Best regards,
Alex.
