Summary0002038: Version "blob" in header displays in strange places
DescriptionWhen the Inform IDE is started, in the center top is a round-corner rectangle giving the current build of the IDE (6M62).

When the window is resized vertically (e.g. by moving the lower edge), this rectangle moves such that it maintains a fixed distance to the lower edge, meaning that it may appear over the main body of the window. Depending on the tab and the horizontal position of the central divider, it may be partially obscured.

It's a cosmetic issue, but a very annoying one.

This sounds like [^] , which was fixed in a IDE update. (Still called version 6M62, but dated 2016.) Do you have the latest version from the web site?

That is exactly my issue. Sorry for the duplicate.

That being said, I downloaded my copy of 6M62 from the website this morning (Nov 6, 2017).

The website page [^] identifies 6M62 as follows:

Inform release 6M62

I meant the version in the app info. The current web page download is dated Oct 8 2016.

Anyway, I can't reproduce this on 10.12.6 or 10.13.1. Bug 1808 was about 10.12, so this is at least slightly different. I don't have a 10.9 machine available to test on, however.

I tried installing the identical same .dmg file that I downloaded this morning, on another system, running 10.12.6. On that system, the UI works as expected when I resize the window.

To make sure I compared apples to apples, on both systems I opened the same sample application, Onyx, to rule out any possibility of my project being part of the problem.

So yes, the conclusion does seem to be that this is specific to older versions of OS X.

I was going to ask you what you meant by "the version in the app info", until I noticed that most all the files in the Contents of the .dmg file are indeed dated Oct 8, 2016, 9:57 AM.
