When I right-click on a style to edit it, the editing box opens and I see the style code momentarily. It then disappears (blank box) and I can find no way to make it reappear (resizing window, trying to select in the box, etc.)

I am running Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.2 (had this problem under previous release) and Logos 6.8.0.49 (also had this problem under previous release). Logs attached.

Logos, please have a look. I shopped this around the Forum and came up with nothing. Thanks!

I've tried every variation that I could think of, and I can't reproduce this. Sad

Would you mind recording a screencast and linking it here? Jing is a free screencast tool if you don't have one.

You have to keep your eye on the place where the style editing box will appear, but in the video you can see the text flash there and then disappear.

I have tried it in a variety of layouts, ranging from my typical full exegetical mess to just a blank layout with only the Copy Bible Verses tool open. I've tried floating that panel, and doing it with Logos maximized (my usual running mode) or not. For me, it never works. Puzzling.

The odd thing is that I've tried those same combinations and it's refusing to show this error. I'm still looking into it, and one way or another I'll pass it along to a developer. Smile

I can reproduce the issue and will look at getting it fixed. Until we are able to track down the cause of the issue, if you change your text size to 100%, it should work correctly.

Interesting! I'll give that a try once Logos is done re-installing. I decided to nuke it and reinstall to see if perhaps it was a problem with the frameworks, etc. Glad you were able to reproduce it and find a workaround! Thanks!

After re-install, it still breaks, but the workaround works, and I got done what I needed to. Thanks much!

Sorry for the late notice (the case for this issue got lost in the holiday shuffle) but Martin's fix for this issue was included in 6.8 SR-1. You should be able to return to your preferred text size for the panel without blanking out the Edit Style window.

And it works! Thanks much. What a bizarre little bug... thanks to Martin for squashing it!
