Sadly the duplicate script menu items bug is still there. I posted a work-around for that bug as a comment on the bug submission page pspad.nlift.com. I hope this will get fixed properly some day though.

Hi,

Thanks for the latest build.

I'd like to report 2 long-standing bugs in PSpad. It is still in the current build.

Bug #1 - Tabs are inserted at the end of a paste operation equal to the number of tabs that start the line if: Real-tabs are ON and Trim-Trailing-Spaces is ON

To replicate:

A1) Turn real-tabs ON and trim-trailing-spaces ON

A2) select a line of text such as:

>>[TAB]response.buffer=true<<

** '>>' represents the start of a line
** '<<' represents the end of a line

A3) select text, starting at the 'r' of response and at the 'b' of buffer.

A4) CTRL-C or Copy

A5) arrow down several lines.

A6) make sure auto-indent is on or hit TAB to indent at least 1 tab.

A7) CTRL-V or Paste.

A8) you get:

>>[TAB]response.b[TAB]{{{cursor is here}}}<<

if you tab in twice from the left edge and hit CTRL-V or Paste, you get:

>>[TAB][TAB]response.b[TAB][TAB]{{{cursor is here}}}<<

if you're 3-tabs in, you get

>>[TAB][TAB][TAB]response.b[TAB][TAB][TAB]{{{cursor is here}}}<<

-----------

Bug #1 - This does not happen if trim-trailing spaces if OFF.

However,

Bug #2 - Artifacts appear on screen if 'Trim-Trailing-Spaces' is OFF and 'Real Tabs' is ON

If 'Trim-Trailing-Spaces' is OFF, PSPad leaves artifacts when you delete the text on a line and if the line starts with a leading [TAB]. The artifacts look like a thin, non-blinking cursor or | (pipe) character. It looks like this

>>[TAB]|

to replicate,

B1) turn 'Trim-Trailing-Spaces' to OFF. Turn 'Real Tabs' to ON

B2) have a screen that looks like:

>>This is text on my screen
>>[TAB]
>>[TAB]this.something=1<<

B2) select/highlight 'this.something=1'

B3) hit delete.

B4) arrow up to the previous line.

the screen now looks like:

>>This is text on my screen
>>[TAB]{{{cursor is here}}}
>>[TAB]|<<

B5) No character is actually where the '|' is on the last line, but there is an artifact on the screen there.

-----------

Please let me know if you need more information to fix these issues. Thanks.

This build is incredibly unstable for me. So many crashes. This in contrast to build 2417, that worked very well for many weeks.

I have e-mailed at least one error report to support@pspad.com. Let me know how I can gather more debugging logs if you need them.

In the meantime, back to 2417 for me.

Sorry, the undo/redo bug is still here.
Still unusable as a professional code editor.

(To reproduce, turn on "Trim trailing spaces" and "Auto indent mode", type some code with indentation, Undo typing, redo typing : the code get completely fucked up).

This bug has been there from a while and it is still the reacon why I don't use PSPad anymore.

- AFAIK it's just "autotrim", not autoindent what screws history
- you can turn it off and use manual Edit > Lines manipulation > Remove redundant spaces. If invoked by a hotkey it is not as clumsy as it may seem.
- just for record, proper bugreport is pspad.nlift.com
- yes, it is annoying, but is not so critical to abandon PSPad completely. Broader awareness of this bug would probably prevent some nasty situations, though. So again, everybody beware!

Hi Jan,

Not sure what version this came in or whether it is something to do with my set up.

When I do a Ctrl J to complete a word, the cursor dissappears, and I have to click on the end of the word to get it back.

Thanks,

Neil

Hi Jan

I've discovered that this is to do with the font selected, i.e. some work, some don't

Talking of fonts, how do I get PSPad to recognise all my fonts. I have got a new machine with lots of fonts but PSPad only shows about 5

Thanks

PSPad can only use non-proportional, i.e. fixed-width fonts which are a minority, as most of the installed fonts are proportional.

PSPad should normally recognise all installed fonts of this category.

Hi Damion & vbr

Thanks for info and link.

I guess I must have had some extra fixed width fonts on my old machine !!
