"Turn Hiding On" glitch (Matthias?)

Post by Quarkhorse » 01 Feb 2017, 09:34

Hello Matthias and all,

When I've got a document open, and the measurement palettes "hiding" automatically based on the position of my cursor, I seem to turn it off and on when I've made a measurements value change, and hit the "enter" or "return" keys to effectuate the change.

It's start to drive me a little batty.

Any advice regarding fixes?

Thanks!
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

am I understand you correctly that you auto-hide palettes (and you want them to be auto-hidden) and after you entered a value they do not auto-hide anymore? If not, can you please elaborate on the issue?

Thanks
Matthias

Hello Matthias,

Yes, I prefer to hide my Measurements palette so that I can have the tallest possible window when typesetting pages.

When I enter a new figure in a field in the Measurements palette, and enact that change by hitting Enter or Return, is not only makes the change, but it also resizes the height of my window, and seems to turn toggle hiding on or off.

With many thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I just tried it, works correctly for me.

Can you try deleting preferences please?

Thanks
Matthias

Thanks, Matthias.

I delted prefs and the problem occurs again, anytime (with hiding turned on) I make a change to a value in the Measurements palette, and actuate it by exiting the box via the "return" or "enter key."
