Marker Drift
Submitted by Kineas on Thursday, 6 January, 2011 - 13:58
Hi,

in the new (4.3.2) version of Jedit the markers no longer stick to their line "anchor". When you place a marker and save the file, the position is saved into the .marks file. If you press ENTER above the marked line it scrolls down, after a save the bookmark positions are updated in the .marks file.

But after restarting jedit the .marks file is no longer maintained, and the markers slowly drift away. Is this a known issue?

regards,
Kineas

I don't think that this has been reported before. But I can't reproduce this behavior (jedit 4.3.2). Maybe it depends on the buffer content and edit mode. Did You try different buffers?

If You could provide detailed steps to reproduce the issue, please report it to the SourceForge Bug Tracker ( http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?atid=100588&group_id=588&func=browse ).

I downloaded the source of the latest stable release.

To reproduce: place some markers in a file. Close the file, then reload. Scroll the lines together with their markers by pressing Enter. Then save the file. (Btw I'm using Windows)

On buffer save there is no MarkersSaveRequest. The Buffer.updateMarkersFile() method on the line 1495 incorrectly returns that markers have not been changed, when in fact they have. I uncommented the following return statement and it works fine.

I don't even see in the code that normal text-editing functions (Enter, Backspace, Delete) could set the MARKERS_CHANGED flag.

Hope this helps.

Sorry, but it doesn't help anyone because unfortunately this forum is a dummy.

Almost only Bugs reported at the SourceForge Trackers ( http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=588 ) are considered by the developers.
