Note field wrongly positioned's Avatar

29 Aug, 2017 01:46 PM


I noticed that sometimes the yellow note field is positioned over the timing-line.
At first I didn't know how to get rid of it, but in the end I discovered that it happens when there is an empty line at the end of the note.
See images.
Is this a bug or something that only happens on my computer?

Kind regards,

    I changed the images to jpg and added a 3th with a character on that empty line, showing, the positioning is ok again.

    Hi Erwin,

    Thank you very much for reporting this bug!

    I thought I had fixed this in a previous minor update… Are you running the latest version, v1.5.9?

    Kind regards,

    Great, thanks Erwin!

    I am not able to reproduce this issue. But I now made some changes to the code that most probably fixes this bug.
    This will be available soon with the next update.
    After that, please let me know if you ever experience this again.

    Ok thanks.
    An other small issue that I noticed is the disappearing of the icon in the Apple Dock when the application window is closed. I'm not sure in which circumstances it happens, but when it happens it looks like in the screen shot. The app-icon is gone, but the space and the dot is still there and the bubble is showing when hovering over the empty space... as you can see in the screen shot.
    I'm using macOS Sierra 10.12.6, if that would be of any importance.
    The app seems to behave as expected for the rest.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Erwin,

    Thanks for reporting this!

    When the app’s main window is closed, the app icon and the space in the dock should disappear completely. It does on my Mac running the same OS version. Maybe you can keep watching this behavior and find out under what circumstances it happens. That would be great.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Niko

    Seems like your last update solved the positioning problem of the note blocks.
    The other problem (icon in dock) didn't show up anymore. Perhaps it happened because of a crash that happened a while ago.
    I'll keep you informed if it happens again.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Niko

    I'm afraid the problem seems not to be solved completely...
    The vertical size (height and y position) of the yellow text-block is wrongly calculated when you have lines that wrap around.
    See both screenshots, illustrating what happens in both cases.

    Kind regards.
