Space Oddity

Post by dunbarx » Thu Jan 16, 2020 3:52 pm

Attached is a small stack.

If one sets the "resizable" in the inspector (coming from the state where resizable is not set), and then adjusts the slider, a series of spurious images appears in the successive renderings of the field. If one clears the "resizable" in the inspector, the field adjusts its height normally.

Doing the same thing by clicking the "reSize" button, does not show this difference. All resizing seems normal.

1- What is going on with these renderings?
2- Why does the button act differently than the inspector?
3- Am I again the only one?

Hi Craig,

just teseted, resizable or not, works as advertized, no "ghosting" or whatever.
Mac OS 10.14.6 and LC 9.5.1 on a Mac Mini late 2014.

Thanks for testing. Attached is what I see.

You may have noticed the double header, a condition that popped up on my machine a few months ago. This goes away when resizable is set, and reappears when cleared. Obviously both are peculiar to my machine.

Does the issue recur when the tab is removed? (And why does macOS insist on putting a tab in place when there are no other tabs?)

I had reported this tab thing a while ago. It is completely dependent on the state of the "resizable" property. Except for the slight bit of vertical real estate it uses, there are no issues. But it comes and goes all day as the property changes.
