Find and replace under windows problem under V18

Postby ray on Sun May 30, 2021 5:18 pm

Hi

Under Dyalog APL/W-64 Version 18.0.39659
Some APL symbols (such as the "comment" ⍝) in the "Find / Replace" popup box are shown as a rectangle and not recognised in searches.

While under Dyalog APL/W-64 Version 17.0.33755 (and earlier versions),
the "Find / Replace" popup box displays (and recognises) these APL symbols correctly.

Is there a setting I need to set or is this a bug that has been introduced in V18?

Thanks
Ray

Hi Ray

Which version of Windows are you using ? And which of the checkboxes in the Find/Replace dialog are selected ?

Andy,

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium, service pack 1.

I have checkboxes "Wrap Search" and "Move Dialog if Hiding Match" selected in both Dialog 17 and 18

Thanks

Yep, thought so !

018851: On Windows 7, some APL characters do not display properly in the editor's quick search field and Workspace Explorer treeview

which is fixed in 18.0.40234.

We are intending to release 18.0 issue 4 for everyone on all platforms in the not too distant future, and that will contain this fix.
