Intermittent Editor Mouse Wheel Bug
« on: October 25, 2006, 08:38:07 pm »
Here's a bug I've been noticing for sometime, but it's intermittent.

Very occasionally, a scroll of the mouse wheel results in font size change of the editor, rather than a page scroll. Usually the font reduces to a miniscule and unreadable size.

When this happens, I can only recover by restarting code blocks.

Any one seen this?

where you pressing ctrl at the same time ?? because when ctrl is pressed then the font enlarges/redus dependent on the direction of your scrolling on the wheel .

This happens to me occasionally but it's the mousewheel which snaps into position a few seconds after I have used it and I happen to press Ctrl at the same time...
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

You must be using a version that is several months old then, since the zoom size is saved when you restart the IDE 8)

But seriously: if it happens again, just hold down Ctrl and move the mouse wheel in the other direction, or use Ctrl-Numpad+, both should do it.

Ahhh! So it's a feature -- not a bug.
