Currently Filters are broken if left active
Entering code in the IDE whilst a filter is active corrupts the current method. Undo does not recover the corruption and you don’t know it’s gone wrong unless you leave the method and return
Moving controls whilst a filter is active causes the control you are moving to lose focus so you can’t press the arrow keys multiple times to set positioning.
The only work around so far it to clear the filter(pressing the cross icon in the filter area) once you have selected whatever you were filtering for.
Xojo 2017r1.1 and Xojo2017r1 have this problem.
Already fixed for R2

A data/code corruption bug should warrant a speedy dot release in my opinion.
Here’s another one.
Adding a menu item whilst a filter is active causes an IDE crash.
The worst thing about the corruption is that undo does not work.
I’m having a total senior moment. But how does this bug work? For what do you filter if you can’t see the method?
Emile: I read the Feedback case. I don’t understand it.
The Filder area is below the blue cube at the leftmost part of the IDE window (Insert).
There is a magnifying glass icon in it and a grey Filter string.
There is alwo a MOOV file in the Feedback report (but I do not check it).
@Emile: Thanks! The lovely obfuscated interface of Feedback doesn’t show the number of attachments. Will have a look at the movie.
As an oldster, I only see what I want (but I do not choose it ).
This happened to me also when I was in my thirties: read line 1 of the doc / NEVER READ LINE #2, in case important information can be there
These are already fixed for R2
And while I hate seeing bugs like this its not feasible to patch just these issues in another point release
There are 2 work arounds
- use the filter to locate the item & open it in a new tab then do your work there
- use the filter, select the item, clear the filter & do your work
