Hidden Line Triangles Disappear
When multiple sections of code are set to hide, I expand one set and the other sections triangles are gone!
There is still a jump in line numbers and the code still exists (somewhere!).
I need to exit notepad to get them back. I just updated to v7.5.4 (x64)
For an image and more info check out this stackoverflow post:
yes, this is an issue when you have overlapping hidden lines but you do not have to exit npp,
just select the endpoint and startpoint of the hidden lines and press alt+h or context menu hide lines then they will reappear.
hidden lines are NOT overlapping.
for example I just tested this:
select lines 4-8 and hide,
select 10-15 and hide,
now the triangles for 10-15 are gone!
Try it yourself and let me know if you get the same result.
Also, selecting the start and end lines + ‘alt+h’ simply hides two more lines.
maybe I didn’t express myself correctly by overlapping I meant the triangles
as you see in line 9 there are two traingles - this causes the issue,
at least the one I know.
When reopening it it shows like this
Place the curor on start of line 16, press shift and arrow key up und you should see a
selection like in the picture.
Press alt+h and you get a new hidden triangle set, click on it and all hidden lines are visible again.
But I see - there seems to be an additional glitch - maybe I try to investigate.
Nevertheless, the npp exit seems not necessary to me.
I need help understanding how to get the triangles back without exiting the app.
I seems anytime a hidden section is made visible again, all other hidden section triangles are gone.
Thank You Claudia for your attention on this topic!! :)
Jacob, one thing about hidden lines is that you cannot hide already hidden lines again,
means when you have e.g. lines 4-8 hidden and now you hide lines 3-10, that,
after you show line 3-10 lines 4-8 are visible too.
That in mind means, that if you have hidden lines without the triangle just create another one
slightly overlapping (now really overlapping lines :-) ) the original one, which should result
in a new pair of triangles which then could be expanded to show the “lost” hidden lines as well.
Works for me.
If this doesn’t work for you, try brute force method, select all, hide all lines, expand it.
Of course results in no hidden lines anymore - but I guess better than restart npp.
oopss - seems to be that it has been already reported as an issue some time ago.
From first look it is rather an npp issue than a scintilla one.
Try to get enough information to prove that it is and will update github issue accordingly.
