Left Paren "(" not visible on Macbook after 10.8.2 update
Submitted by FatDog on Thursday, 14 March, 2013 - 16:07
My work supplied Macbook was having some issues so they upgraded the OS to 10.8.2. Not the latest but a good working version of the previous version.

I was stuck in a WarRoom and had to use Jedit on the Mac and discovered something funny. The left parenthensies are all invisible:

my %gPUB_HASH = (); - This is what it looks like in TextWrangler
my %gPUB_HASH = ); - This is what it looks like in Jedit


The open paren character "(" is invisible all throughout the .pl script. I have changed the color scheme, the background and even tried reloading with several different encoding schemes but no luck.

If I cut and paste the text into a email or TextWrangler the character shows up. It is just invisible

As I type the closing ")" character the cursor does flash to where the "(" should be so Jedit knows it is there.

Help! This is really annoying and does not happen on my various Window installs.

Maybe You should try another font type and / or other font display options in "Global Options -> Text Area".

SUCCESS!

I was using Courier font to make sure indentation and things looked OK like it would appear under Unix. When I switched to a different font - the parens showed back up.

Thank you!
