    Hi

    I use split screen while developing so i don’t have to switch tabs as often.

    The problem is that the wrong text gets selected when trying to highlight from an inactive tab. I would expect the text to highlight from where i clicked and dragged and not from the last position of the cursor to current position of cursor.

    Steps:
    – open 2 files and drag the tab so that it splits the screen into 2 files.
    – in file 2 place the cursor at the bottom of the files
    – single click back in tab one to get focus
    – now in tab2 try highlight some code near the top and notice how the selection is now from the bottom of the screen to the mouse cursor

    Similarly:
    – place the cursor at the top of tabs 2 and scroll to the bottom of the page
    – click in tab 1
    – click back in tab 2 and the screen goes back to the cursor
    – I would expect the screen to stay where it is?

    Are these 2 points intentional as i don’t really see the use case of going back to the cursor after leaving the file?

    Cheers
    Dale

    Also another thing in the same category with split screen:
    – change a file
    – change another file
    – click save all
    Goes back to first file when it should stay on current file

    Has there been any update on this? It’s super annoying!

    There’s even another bug where when swtiching between tabs:

    – Scroll to the bottom of the page and place the cursor at the bottom
    – Use the scroll bar to go to the top
    – change tabs
    – go back to that tab and watch the screen go from the top to the bottom

    It should stay at the top where i left it?

    Dale,

    I believe the latest issue is the same as the second issue you reported in your first post? Regardless, all the scrolling / selection issues have the same root cause, and I fully agree that the way the cursor jumps around is highly annoying.

    We’re going to do our best to fix this in a release we have due next week, apologies for the annoyance.

    Fantastic!

    Once this is fixed it will be very nice and smooth to use and definately the best editor going!

    Cheers

    Dale,

    We loaded up a prerelease of our CodeMix 3 release slated for this coming week (likely later in the week) – it should already have the cursor fixes working well in it. We’re still doing final regression, but if you don’t mind, you are welcome to pick it up and give us any additional feedback!

    To use the preview release, follow these steps:

    1. Add the following line to Eclipse/configuration/config.ini
    com.genuitec.code.manifest.url=http\://www.genuitec.com/updates/codemix/prerelease/codemix.json
    2. Restart Eclipse
    3. An update will be detected as shown bottom left — when the update is applied, click the Restart icon to reload Eclipse with the prerelease version of CodeMix

    Please let us know if it works for you!

    Dale,

    We hadn’t realized you were using the standalone Angular IDE installation, as opposed to Angular IDE plugins installed into Eclipse, and these instructions unfortunately do not allow the standalone installation to update.

    If there’s another way to update pre-release, I’ll update this thread; we are on track to the full release in a couple of days, so hopefully not much of a wait either way!

    Would you recommend the plugin over the IDE then? Thinking of switching if that will be updated quicker / easier.

    Dale,

    We had a few unexpected but important last-minute issues crop up that have delayed the release to tomorrow (Thursday) – sorry for not mentioning the delay here.

    We’re in the final stages of testing now, so if you’re fine waiting for a little over a day, you can stick with Angular IDE. If we find that it’s going to be further delayed for whatever reason, I’ll be sure to drop a note here.
