Livecode windows disappearing

Post by KimD » Fri Jul 10, 2015 11:25 am

Windows 7 and Livecode 7.0.6

I'm experiencing a problem whereby some of my Livecode windows disappear. I've had this happen with the Livecode Tools window, and with the Livecode 7.0.6 Main window. The windows disappear from the desktop area. They remain visible as one of the Livecode icons on the taskbar, but clicking on them in the task bar does not cause them to reappear. When this is happening, the other Livecode windows stay visible / usable on the desktop. This is happening approx once every 30 minutes of using Livecode. The only solution that I have found so far is to shut down and restart Livecode. Then everything is OK again,,, for a while.

Thanks in advance

// One of those days yesterday where everything that could go wrong... I have re-installed Livecode this morning, but same issues persist

It is probable that the stack is offscreen at some loc such as -55555,-55555

If you know the name of the "missing" stack you can use the message box to type

set the loc of stack "themissingstackname" to the screenloc

That should bring it back onscreen for you to drag to the correct position.

The problem hasn't re-occurred since I read your suggestion. Isn't that always the way.

If it does re-occur, I will try what you suggest.

Regards
