Ghost windows with multiple code blocks instances
« on: November 13, 2019, 11:00:06 am »
I am using Debian 9.9, Xfce 4.12.

I usually run 2 instances of code blocks and had no problem on Ubuntu, i recently moved to Debian.
Now code blocks is generally unusable, after a short time when i am in one project, I will be typing away and suddenly the view in code blocks switches to show the code in a different file.

a file in the other code blocks instance!

now i cant actually edit this file, what is showing is not what code blocks thinks is there, its like code blocks is drawing the other file in its view but the back end model is still the original file.

at this stage I cant do anything, switching back results in code blocks switching to the other project again after a few seconds.

has this been seen, any ideas? what can i do here to help you?

Cheers

Nope, you're the first reporting such problems.
Can you record a video with this effect?
