[FIXED] FontCreator lost focus

Post by Toxman » Wed Dec 07, 2016 11:02 am

Hi, when is displayed some window (e.g. Glyph Properties, Palette, User Notes) and press button Open an installed font... or File - Open Installed Font... or [Ctrl]+, instead of opening and focusing window Open Installed Fonts, the main window FontCreator 10.1 (2252) lost focus and go backward (this is hidden from another previous opened window i.e. Firefox). This error affect not always but 95%.

Pressing FontCreator icon on task bar repeatedly (never one time!), then FontCreator is at last displayed. [Alt]+[Tab] and select FontCreator these window display always.

Tested on Windows 8.1 (64 bit, Czech). Dependency of these error is possible more complex.

We only noticed this with the Test TTF/OTF dialog (F5). We fixed that, so I wonder if that dialog works fine on your computer?

I cannot confirm this at all using FontCreator 10.1 build 2252 (the latest build).

This behavior is evidently not always and more more complex.
Sometimes these "error" occurs repeatedly and repeatedly, sometimes when press [Ctrl]+ disappear window Glyph Properties (if opened) and sometimes not any problem.

I will try to specify more precisely.

After longer testing, the problem up has not appeared. :? But maybe it si related with "?error?" or strange behavior bellow:

If more programs on OS running (filled tray or second and next... tray page available) and FontCreator icon is not last (run before or draged), when click on Open Installed Font, then FontCreator go to last position on tray (on last tray page).

With the recent update we applied the same solution as done with the font test dialog.

This shuffle problem was tested on FontCreator 10.1.0 (2257) and persist even after reinstall (uninstall, restart PC, new install).
This shuffling will not hapen always, but around 9 from 10 tests (and Test Font window is OK - not shuffling tray icon). :?

I'll keep an eye on it, but I don't consider this a major problem.

OK. (Only this is unusual behavior and I do not know of another common program that would do it.) :)
In any case, thanks! :)
