Minimise, Restore/Maximise and Close

Post by DrTeeth » Sat Apr 07, 2018 12:23 am

Hi,

If those three buttons, the minimise one has less than half its area that will highlight the button so a click will minimise.

If one draws a line through the minus sign, then another about 0.5-1 mm below that one, you will find that only the area under that second line "works". The other two buttons have an acceptable area of activity.

Cheers

Hello DrTeeth

Thank you for your post. I am not seeing this behavior here - the minimize button seems to be fully accessible. Please go to Help> About and let us know what version and build you are running. Please also specify the version of windows you are using.

Thank you!

Hi Patrick,

If you would like a video of the behaviour, please let me know and I will do one for you.

Using Windows 8.1 Pro x64. PDF-XChange Editor version 7.0 Build 324.3.

It's very late here now, or early depending on one's view, it's 03:03 hrs.

Cheers

Hi Dr. Teeth,

A video would be greatly appreciated here - I can't reproduce this either.

Thanks :)

Hi Will,

Hope you are well. If the video does not make the issue evident, I will do another one.

Cheers

DrTeeth

9/4/18 - UPDATE
The demarcation between the working and non-working parts is the minimise button is NOT a horizontal line as I have erroneously stated in the past. It is a diagonal line running from bottom left to top right. So I can now produce a video of moving the cursor in the minimise button without the dark-grey colour (indicating that the button will accept a click) appearing at all.

Toodle-pip chaps,

Hello DrTeeth,
I have to say that I am unable to reproduce it on my end as well, I have two questions for you.
Does this happen in any other applications, Have you investigated this in MS Paint for example?
Have you checked for updates within windows?
I am asking this because I am almost entirely certain that it is an issue with your installation of windows. Please let us know if you find anything!

If you believe that the editor is causing this, then please try performing a full reinstallation and see if the issue persists:

Follow the below instructions to perform this task.
1. This method has some additional steps beyond uninstalling, please follow them closely. Be sure to restart the computer at every point detailed, this is crucial to clearing your system of our files.
2. Open the Start menu and type Control Panel.
3. Navigate to Programs > Programs and Features.
4. Uninstall everything that is published by Tracker Software Products.
5. Once this is complete, please restart your computer.
6. Once restarted please go to regedit.exe, built into every windows computer. Find it by typing "regedit" in the search bar of your start menu.
7. Please delete the following registry entries. Only the "Tracker Software" folder and all its sub-folders. **Be extremely careful as a mistake could render your computer useless**
- HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tracker Software
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software
8. You can now close Regedit.
9. Open your file browser and navigate to C:\Program Files.
10. Ensure there is no folder named Tracker Software. If there is, delete it.
11. Restart your computer.
12. Install the software.
Download and run the correct installer for your version of the software from our Downloads page: https://www.tracker-software.com/product/downloads
13. When asked by the installer, please choose the PRO version, then, copy/paste your serial key into the field provided. Be sure to use CTRL+V to paste the key.
14. Complete the installation and restart your PC.

Hi Daniel,

Could you please tell me how to backup my settings for Editor before I start? I will not restore any settings until I have tested the fresh install as I realise that is where any error could reside.

No other program is affected by this. I did have an issue in the past with a utility causing this problem in only one other program. I fixed that and applied the same fix to Editor, but it did not make any difference in this case.

Cheers

Saving your settings is as simple as clicking File > Export settings, and then holding on to them.

As for testing the latest build, if you do not wish to uninstall yet, you could also download a portable version here: https://www.tracker-software.com/produc ... nge-editor

Hi, Vasyl just noticed something, It appears you have a program that applies an overlay to the window!

Can you identify what the program is, and temporarily disable it? you should find that it is working correctly, and this Is not a bug with our program

Hi Daniel,

That overlay is what I mentioned above. I did remove it from Editor and it did not change anything so I moved it back. Sorry for missing the export settings function. So few programs have them.

I'll get on the case tomorrow.

Cheers

Thanks for that DrT,
But do also try completely disabling the overlay program, just temporarily, I still feel like it is the cause of all this.

Hi Daniel,

You got it. It was that program.

I did not disable the program for Editor correctly before. I have done it now and the minimise button is working okay.

Many thanks
