file search / pack dialog does not show.
« on: May 12, 2019, 12:33:35 »
Hi,
Sometimes when i hit pack or file search, i don't get the dialog. This happens often if the other panel has no explorer in focus but for instance the file search window or configuration window. Setting focus back to the explorer window in the other pane makes the dialog come up again.
It doesn't always exactly happen like this. Sometimes it comes up anyway, sometimes i need to create an explorer window in the other pane.

That becuse the pack and filesearch is requeste to be open on is a panel that is not a filesystem panel. the action you do is an action on that panel.

Mathias,

It's something else, look at the pic, the cursor is on the two dots .. in the top in the left panel. If i now do Edit New File, nothing happens.
After i restart Mc and do the same, i get the dialog.

I suspect it has to do with Sleep / S3, could that be?
I seldom reboot this pc, just wake it up in the morning. I even made an Ahk keycombo to restart Mc quickly.
