PDF Editor 7.0.323.0: Document tabs

Sat Dec 02, 2017 1:25 pm

Hi,
there are some (minor) issues with the document tabs in PDF Editor 7.0.323.0:
  • The shrink document tabs setting (Preferences>General>Tabs and Windows>Shrink document tabs) is only applied on importing the preferences. Even a restart of the editor (I'm using the portable version) does not apply this setting.
  • If shrink document tabs is unset (and enabled via preferences import), the scroll speed using the mouse wheel or the arrow buttons is much slower than in v6. This makes scrolling through the list a bit tedious. I'd like to suggest to add an "accelerator" key (like shift) to increase the scroll speed significantly if the slower speed is intentional.
Apart from that I like the new release so far, especially the shortcut bar in the title.

Hello christian kuhlmann,

Thanks for the kind words!

You reported this as your first issue "he shrink document tabs setting is only applied on importing the preferences."
Does this mean that this checkbox is not checked for you, and you can't make it stay checked?
I had no problems with changing it's state and saving it between Editor sessions.
As you are using the portable Editor - are there sufficient write privileges for the folder where it is? As the Editor has to make changes to a file in that folder to store any new settings.

As for the issue with the scroll speed - I will pass this to my colleagues in the dev team to investigate.

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan,
what I tried to describe was that despite the checkbox being set or cleared (and being remembered between editor sessions), it has no effect on the tab bar for me. The tab width just isn't changed until I export and re-import my settings. When doing so, the correct tab width (as specified by the setting at the time of the export) is applied to the UI. Changing the setting afterwards shows the same behavior: It's only applied to the UI on re-import.
I'm not sure whether this is unique to the portable install (it's a bit too early for me to replace my installed version). The editor was executed from a folder where my logged in user has full permissions.

Kind regards,
Christian

Hi Christian,

it appears to be working for me in the 7.0.323.1 pre-release I am looking at. Having said that, it is not a 'Portable' version.

There are quite a few fixes in this next release, many of them UI related. My suggestion is to wait for the release tomorrow when all the versions will be available and test again in both the portable and installed versions.

regards
