Hidden Line Triangles Disappear



  • But I see - there seems to be an additional glitch - maybe I try to investigate.
    Nevertheless, the npp exit seems not necessary to me.

  • I need help understanding how to get the triangles back without exiting the app.
    I seems anytime a hidden section is made visible again, all other hidden section triangles are gone.

    Thank You Claudia for your attention on this topic!! :)

    Jacob, one thing about hidden lines is that you cannot hide already hidden lines again,
    means when you have e.g. lines 4-8 hidden and now you hide lines 3-10, that,
    after you show line 3-10 lines 4-8 are visible too.

    That in mind means, that if you have hidden lines without the triangle just create another one
    slightly overlapping (now really overlapping lines :-) ) the original one, which should result
    in a new pair of triangles which then could be expanded to show the “lost” hidden lines as well.
    Works for me.

    If this doesn’t work for you, try brute force method, select all, hide all lines, expand it.
    Of course results in no hidden lines anymore - but I guess better than restart npp.

    Cheers

    oopss - seems to be that it has been already reported as an issue some time ago.
    From first look it is rather an npp issue than a scintilla one.
    Try to get enough information to prove that it is and will update github issue accordingly.

  • I don’t understand, if this has been reported why isn’t anyone assigned to the issue? Why would end users be responsible for proving it?

    There is an “I” missing

    I try to get enough information to prove that it is and will update github issue accordingly.

    but nevertheless, I have a python script written to prove that scintilla seems to work correctly
    so, if, by any chance, you use python script as well you could use this in the meantime to make
    it work for you.
    Let me know in case you want to have.

    Cheers
    Claudia

    This could very well be my all-time favorite posting on this site.

    :-D



  • I don’t even have “triangles”, nor do I want them. I hid a line and there is no Un-Hide. Very frustrating.



  • @Bryan-Fritchie ,

    I can confirm: I just hid a line (got the triangles), then hid a second line adjacent to it (getting another triangle). When I then hit the triangle to unhide the second, both triangles disappear, but the first line is still hidden. If I go to a second tab and back, the line is visible again. (This is a similar sequence to what’s described above).

  • The hide/unhide lines feature of Notepad++ is problematic and best avoided IMO.
