Developer View Shifting!

Postby Lazzah » Tue Dec 11, 2018 1:26 pm

Hi all,

I don't know what I have done, but my developer has started to scroll over whenever I open a folder. Is there any way to stop this? See attached screenshots (couldn't attach video)

I know this is a minor thing but it is driving me nuts, it only started happening in the last couple of days.

Many :Thanks: in anticipation!

I'm not familiar with the settings of the ADRIFT generator as the Linux generator is a little out of date.

That said, I might be able to help: It seems that the "Folders" window has become either 'stuck' or 'unstuck' such that when the generator redraws the screen, the open tiles get drawn under the "Folders" window. See if unsticking the window helps. If not, there may be another option hidden under the "View" menu tab that could help. In particular, look for options with keys that you may have pressed accidentally.

Is this still a problem Lazzah? Have you tried closing the folder window and then in the view tab clicking on folder icon again, it might reset the problem. I don't think i've had this problem before. If that doesn't work try right clicking the folder window at the top most part of it and make sure dockable is checked. If it is, then maybe try unchecking it and then checking it. Note I'm just making a suggestion that may or may not work,

Hi Daza,

Funny you should mention this as I have literally just noticed that the phenomenon has stopped! When I open a folder the developer "jumps" a bit but it doesn't scroll to the left like it has been doing. I haven't got a clue why this has happened or what I have done to start/stop this happening. Hopefully it won't happen again, fingers crossed!
