Old topic about table fields

Post by dunbarx » Thu Aug 01, 2019 9:45 pm

This still is a problem in 9.0,4.(bug 20494) Discussion at;
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=31452&p=170731&hili ... ly#p170731

I have not upgraded to 9.5, but suspect it still is a problem there as well. Though the workaround noted in the discussion seems to, er, work, this is the single most egregious bug I know of in LC. Reading over the many features that 9.5 is sporting, I think 9.x should sport this one first.

Might be good to check. If it got as far as a pull request, it would highly unusual not to be in the latest build.

This bug still exists in the latest 9.5 . The workaround still works, but it would be nice to see this very old bug squashed.

If it gets as far as a pull request the other users in this user-to-user support forum can do little more, and the engine team doesn't generally search the forums for supplemental details on an existing report.

I just added your question to the report itself so the team can see it and respond.
