[Construct 2 r266+] Several view toggle buttons aren't working

  • Description

    The buttons to view the "Z Order Bar", "Bookmarks Bar" and "Configurations Bar" aren't working anymore. Toggling them doesn't show or hide the bars as expected.

    Also toggling any bars while the image editor is open leads to some weird results. I assume that this could be an unwanted side effect of the recent "edit button" crash fix.

    Reproduction

    1. Open Construct 2 r266 or r267 (cannot reproduce in r265)
    2. Try to toggle any of the mentioned bars
    3. Notice that the bars aren't appearing as expected
    4. [Optional] Repeat steps while the image editor is open

    Version

    Tested and could reproduce using Construct 2 r266 and r267 on Windows 7.

    I use the Steam beta branch for updates.

  • Are you sure this did not reproduce in r265? There have been no changes to the editor since then...

    Not sure, those are just the versions I tested it on. Can't really downgrade using the Steam version. There are no branch options since the recent update got pushed (by accident?).

    So r265 might have been affected as well.

  • Was not sure if I need to create new post in this subforum, so I'll just write it here (since the title says r266+). I'm on Steam version of C2, so I have r267. The thing that bothers me is that from time to time the app closes itself without any error message or warning. Last time it happened today, after I was trying to close the image editor. It closed the window with the sprite, while two other windows remained opened for a few seconds. Then the program just closed. This gets really frustrating. Hope it can be resolved and I can get back to my project without worrying of losing the progress again. Thanks in advance!

    P.S. The buttons, mentioned above do not work properly too. Can confirm.

  • Just wanted to bump that thread. Z order window is still not working properly. Even if you call it with context menu (right click) it works only from clicking the second time. Also, C2 closed again without any error. All that started to happen after r267 in Steam.

  • Same thing here. Z view button simply opens no window, and C2 keeps closing itself out of nowhere - no crash or anything. It does freeze very briefly before closing itself down. I'd love to make a new bug post but to be honest I don't have any more information other than that. It usually happens randomly.

  • I have also been closed several times, although infrequently.

    Before the crash happens something happens to me, the window of C2 becomes large, it goes out of proportion, it becomes blurred and then two things can happen:

    1 - the crash occurs and C2 closes

    2 - returns to normal and nothing happens

    I think this happens when the file is being saved automatically, the backup is done.

  • I appreciate everyone sharing their experiences but I would like to keep this bug report about the initial issue of several view toggle buttons not working right.

    If you got issues with performance or crashes, please create a separate report to keep things clean and easy to read.

    I've created a separate topic (https://www.construct.net/en/forum/construct-2/bugs-21/construct-r267-closes-itself-142998) for that matter, so it would be nice if you'd replicate your post about it there. Thanks in advance!

  • Just a heads up - if you use the bookmarks bar a lot do NOT close it. I just closed mine by accident and now I can't get it back. :(

    Edit: I forgot to mention, resetting dialogues does nothing.

  • Ashley Cannot reproduce using r268, fix confirmed by me.

    Thanks for the new themes and bug report can be closed.
