Columns widening and not changable

Postby Justus » Tue Sep 28, 2010 4:32 pm

PM 5.75 has an issue with the columns widening on their own, especially the first two columns. And I can't shrink them except by blowing away the registry entries for PM. Then all the formatting comes back to normal and the columns are skinny again.

In testing opening and closing PM causes the values in the LBFS_?Browse:1 registry key to be incremented. For example, the initial value and the value after opening and closing PM twice:

Before:
LBFS_?Browse:1=7L(1)I@s1@#1#12L(1)|I@s1@#3#102L(1)|M~Description~@s128@#5#105L(1)|M~Document~@s255@#7#70L(1)|M~Name~@s128@#8#48L(1)|M~Category~@s40@#6#151L(1)|M~Notes~...

After:
LBFS_?Browse:1=9L(1)I@s1@#1#14L(1)|I@s1@#3#104L(1)|M~Description~@s128@#5#107L(1)|M~Document~@s255@#7#72L(1)|M~Name~@s128@#8#50L(1)|M~Category~@s40@#6#153L(1)|M~Notes~...

Also, when moving or sizing columns by dragging them, I have to move the cursor off the column bar after dropping the column in it's new position. Just dropping it does not cause it to repaint.

The issue with the columns widening when the default font is used has been fixed for 5.76.5768.

The 5.76 B5768 build is better, but now is shrinking the first column. So

5L(1)I@s1@#1#9L(1)|I@s1@#3#99L(1)|M~Description~...

becomes

3L(1)I@s1@#1#3L(1)|I@s1@#3#99L(1)|M~Description~...

after two opening/closing. It does not appear to decrease the first # below 3.

Are you using a custom font?

(You can set which font Passwords Max uses)

Yes, Courier New, so I can tell the difference between l (ell), I (eye), | (vert bar), etc.

Vince,

This problem has returned in 5.78 build 5784. Every time I open PM, the columns are wider.

Also, 5.78 has re-introduced the bug when dragging the columns headers around to re-arrange the order of the columns does not move the contents, so the headers no longer match the contents of the columns.

Wiping out the HLCU\...\Passwords Max\Settings\Runtime hierarchy fixes the column widths, but they just start getting bigger again. It also fixed the column drag issue. When I restarted PM, dragging columns worked.

Help!

Thank you - Justus
