Spread Errors in 10.0.3.3

Postby MysticEast » Mon 26 Sep, 2016 11:15 am

Hi Richard,
hope you've had enough of a break to be able to work on a few bugs in the latest version?

I've been working on a few new Decks and a Spread to go with them. in doing that I noticed the following two bugs.

1) A fairly long explanation of what to do with the Spread (placed in the "Spread Notes") doesn't Scroll. It "Flickers", showing that there is someething more there, but won't display it all.

2) Having done a Spread and now changing from that Deck to another, the new Deck does not "size" appropriately with the Spread (which it USED to do), instead it opens up with it's "Deck Specified size".
This really annoys, when trying to compare the interpretation of different decks for that Reading.

I know that I mentioned the sizing issue with regard to the Spread Wizard. The fact that it used to shunt cards about if a different deck was selected in the Spread Wizard. You seem to have fixed that issue, but this one has popped up instead. I think it was really useful and desirable behaviour for the "Spread Sizing" to rule the roost and take precedence over the "Deck Specified Size". Please change that back!

I know that I had at that same time expressed a preference for "Centered Sizing" (if that were possible), rather than the "Top Left Corner Sizing", which I believe is how it happens currently. But I had no wish for this!

Regards
MysticEast

(I have noticed some other minor bugs, and I will post them as soon as I'm certain of what's going on...)

Hi Mystic,

I have fixed both of these things but not compiled them into a new version yet. The reason is that I am working on a few other tweaks and they are not fully tested yet. I will post back on here when the new version becomes available.

Cheers

Sounds like a good idea!
As I said above I've seen a number of other bugs, which I'm attempting to see if they are consistent.

One I can mention here. I've noticed a lot of files being sent by Orphalese to the Recycle Bin. It's always a jpg file. They always have the name of a Deck I've just been using. I know that it's orphalese sending these, since the file doesn't exist in the Deck! I didn't put it there! The Recycle bin gives the origin of the files as Orphalese's Temporary folder.

It doesn't really matter, but perhaps it doesn't look very professional??

OK, that is interesting. When I was working on version 10 I noticed somewhere where the program was deleting a file when it should have sent it to the recycle bin. I went a bit overboard and went through the program searching for other instances of this and no doubt changed the code to use the recycle bin on some occasions where it would do no harm to delete (i.e. with temporary files). I will see if I can find where it is happening and fix it back.
