Redraw problem using file search (Alt-F7)

Post by apsen »

Just downloaded latest stable version [3.0.5555 x64] after upgrading to new system (been using an old version for a long time) and noticed that sometimes the file search using Alt-F7 stops redrawing the progress of the search... For example I could start search that should finish in a few seconds and coming back after a few minutes all I see is three dots at the bottom but after pressing an arrow key it will redraw with the final results.

This is on latest Windows 10 while I used to be on Windows 7... Does not seem like such an obvious bug would be in stable release so are there any console settings that could be causing this?

First of all, please check the latest available Far build. It's likely no less stable.

One of us hadn't had their morning coffee yet... What is more recent than 3.0.5555?

Do you mean you want me to re-download the same version?

The download page contains last nightly build. That is what he meant. Sometimes it may have some bugs fixed that still exist in the "stable" version.

apsen, does it reproduce if you start Far without plug-ins? (See Far command-line reference in Help.)

I'll try tomorrow... But it is not 100% reproducible - sometimes it is fine for a while, sometimes is just once in a while, and sometimes is is multiple searches in a row and this is all in the same instance of FAR... I kind of got into a habit of pressing left and right arrows if it seams like there's no redraw as that seems to force the redraw...

Same here, it's a known issue.

Any hope of it being fixed? Or is it known what is the latest version that does not exhibit this behavior?

And just in case: this problem is still present in the absence of the plugins.
