MultiDataViewer - where did vertical scrollbar go?
« on: June 23, 2014, 14:34:52 »
I'm viewing a (not too long) ASCII text file with MultiDataViewer and there is no vertical scrollbar to move in the document. Is this an option I turned off accidentally?

No it is shown automatically if needed.

Do mouse wheel work even if there is no scrollbar ?

I noticed this behavior only on certain files :o
I'm not able to scroll vertically with mouse either, only horizontally...

I have attached such a file. It is a text file with UNIX style line breaks (LF).

I figured out that the mouse wheel problem was caused by a tool I use: http://ehiti.de/katmouse/ I disabled it now and I'm able to scroll vertically now with the mouse wheel. One mystery resolved... I'll disable Katmouse for MultiDataViewer, although it is a very useful tool to scroll unfocused windows with the wheel. Some apps are incompatible, one is Google Chrome. Looks like MultiDataViewer is another one  :(

Regarding the scrollbar. I resized the window, made it smaller and vertical scrollbar did appear. However, the size seems to be wrong: I dragged it down and I'm still at about 50% of the file (see screenshot1).

Then I increased the window a little bit, and the vertical scrollbar disappeared again (see screenshot2).

Arrow keys work in all cases.

This is a Win7 x64 machine, with DPI set to 125% - not sure if this matters. Did not cause such issues so far, though.

If you want just wheel scrol in unfocused windows, AlwaysMouseWheel works ok in MultiDataViewer and Chrome.

The MultiDataViewer issue I posted is fixed with the latest build (v4.4 1725).

Thanks Mathias.
