DipTrace 4.2.0.1 - cursor disappears

#1 Post by Tomg » 20 Nov 2021, 09:58

Discovered a minor DipTrace 4.2.0.1 (64-bit) bug in the Pattern and Component editors. Pressing almost any key on the keyboard causes the cursor to disappear. Moving the mouse brings it back.

Unchecked option and restarted. Problem still exists.

Verified, again
Windows 11 Pro
OS BUILD 22000.348
Mouse Logitech MX Master 3 with current Logitech Flow software installed (Logitech Options 9.40.86).
Note: The "Hide pointer while typing" was checked, I un-checked it then ran pattern editor with the same results, pointer disappears when any key pressed.

We double-checked and confirmed behavior. Older versions work in the same way. We will investigate the issue but in by opinion it is not big problem.

The only application I've found that doesn't hide the cursor has been GIMP, regardless of the mouse settings it always displays the cursor. TurboCad, Paint and other drawing applications hide the cursor with the setting unchecked.

DipTrace's Schematic and PCB Layout editors don't hide the cursor, either; but the Pattern and Component editors do. This represents some sort of programming inconsistency between modules. Not a big deal, just an oddity.

We have already done fixes in source codes for consistency, thanks again for the report.
