Known Bugs

These are bugs that I'm aware of but haven't been able to fix.

Occasionally the screen doesn't get repainted

This should be fixed, but if this happens you can use Bitmap->Refresh to refresh the screen. If you let me know the exact sequence of events that caused this, I'll see if I can fix it.

Mnemonic will select RGB/CMYK/HSB/Grey tab, but won't give the tab the focus

You will have to use the TAB key or mouse to change the focus.

KDE: when a dialog box is on shade setting the close button doesn't work

This is a known Java bug. See: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6449451

If you are using KDE, don't click on the close button for any dialog box that has the shade setting on otherwise the dialog box won't go away until you quit or killed the application.

KDE: Sometimes a dialog box will open shaded or full screen

I think this is a Java bug. See http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=135146

Top

Sometimes the dialog boxes won't accept keyboard input (including mnemonics) even though they have the focus

Switching the focus to another application and then back again fixes it. I can't consistently reproduce this problem.

Top

Sometimes text will shift location slightly when finishing a new area

This is caused when the text field used in constructing a text area is located slightly off the actual position of the text area. I think this is because the text field uses integer dimensions whereas the text area is painted using floating point dimensions. This problem is therefore most likely due to rounding errors.

Top

The printer margins are incorrect when using Java version 1.6.0

I think this may be related to http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6726691. It doesn't occur with Java version 1.5.0.
