Starting preview wildly off

Vince's Avatar


30 Aug, 2017 04:17 PM

When opening a file, the preview is often (usually, in my experience) wildly off. I've attached an example: the editing side is at the bottom of the file, the Preview side is almost all white-screen with the first couple of lines of the file at the bottom. IOW, they're showing the opposite of what they should be showing (either both at the top or both at the bottom).

When starting to scroll, the Preview side will immediately correct itself.

    Hmmm. It didn't attach the screen print again. I'm going to try again…

    Side effect of the changes to stabilize typing on the editor -- if that
    is truly working better, I can get the preview to line up better when
    first opened.

    I've noticed (since I've been opening and closing the file a lot due to the formatting issues) that MMD appears to know where I left off because it puts the cursor there, but it doesn't put that on the screen.

    For example, that screen shot showed that the file opened and position the editor side to the bottom of the file. But that's not where I left off editing. And if I scroll up to where I did leave off, I see the cursor there (I haven't clicked anywhere yet.) So it seems to know where I was editing, but that's not what it puts on-screen on the editing side.

    This may be related to the preview issue, so it may be fixed as part of what you did, I just thought I would mention it in case it wasn't.

    Somewhat related, but different.

    Yes -- Composer tracks the selected range when saving files, and
    restores it when opening.

    But since you mentioned it, I went ahead and fixed it so that it scrolls
    that selection as well.
