There goes the next new Code Blocks-related issue.  :)
A sudden crash when I type in the parenthesis of a function-like macro in a pre-processor conditional.

I also recorded a video (It is unlisted):

I haven't looked into it, but it might be the parser-provided syntax complete (which is also quite bad per se).

Please create a ticket and post the information there.

@RadicalInquisition:
Please mention the OS version, the CB version and revision,
attach any .RPT in the CodeBlocks executable folder.
And, if possible, some code to recreate the problem.

This looks suspiciously like a problem that has already been fixed in an (almost) recent commit.

As I mentioned before, I am only willing to communicate the issues with someone in particular who is interested in taking notice.
I can message them (on Discord) the moment I encounter an issue and then I could provide whatever information is necessary in advance.
I could try to isolate the problem and provide a minimum reproducible code.

Yes, my version is likely not the most recent version built.
But the version 20.03 on Windows.
I am prone to think that the Linux build has far fewer issues (but there I would much rather use an alternative).

Looks like allot of CB devs have tried to help, but have got no where. Time to move on to other CB users who are willing to help or willing to follow the exiting processes instead of trying to help one dev who does not want to follow the vast majority of normal open source processes that have a bug tracking system that is used instead of DM.

I mean I have the option simply not to use it, but they are devs, and as devs, I assume it is far more likely that they care a bit more.
Yes, I am not willing to go through any support ticket systems.
I'll could give my time to investigate bugs in someone's programs, but that is not happening through tickets.

If you are not a troll, the thing to do is install an CB nightly build.
https://forums.codeblocks.org/index.php/board,20.0.html

But, I for one think you are a troll.

I have no idea why some people are trolls; I suggest asking a troll or thinking why you do not wish to report the information  needed to solve your issues and why you refuse to do the work of extracting an nightly build into an empty folder.

Umm, that was clearly not what I was asking, but okay.
Seems like it was indeed silly of me to expect any understanding or at least respect for my personal preference, or any effort to read for that matter.
..and I never said I wouldn't give this new nightly build a try. It just feels awfully like a one-way communication and it is honestly quite disturbing to see in a place meant to gather actual programmers. Oh well, have a nice day I guess. Not going to participate further.

I've been using Code::Blocks for a long time. It has its quirks. If these bother me (keywords autosafe, bad autocomplete and no F1 help that branches to the keyword in CPP reference, Windows orientated, no Linux nightlies, etc.), I just use KDevelop (with some, but others Quirks) or the Qt Creator (with the fewest quirks). In other words, I would never rely on a single development environment alone. Because: What if CB is not developed further (e.g. so as not to have problems with Wayland). If KDevelop falls asleep or the Qt creator has to be paid. Maybe I'm only able to do this because I don't develop huge projects. If you use more than one IDE regularly, or even maintain your projects in the mentioned IDEs in parallel, you are on the safe side. If one IDE fails, you still have the others.
