[BUG] client window fails to redraw

[BUG] client window fails to redraw

Postby qwerty1 on Fri Jun 04, 2010 12:57 am

This may have been brought up in other issues, but I wanted to add my own symptoms.

Frequently, when I return to Sublime after using some other app, the client window (i.e, not the menu bar or title bar) fails to redraw. The only way to rectify this is to close the app and relaunch.

* happens on XP SP2 and 7
* menus still drop down (although I don't know if they do anything)
* Sublime still prompts you to save docs on exit
* I always run Sublime maximized
* un-maximising (restoring) the window doesn't help

This is generally fixed by running in OpenGL mode (See http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/faq#graphics)

Alternatively, when it does happen, you can use "File/Exit and Preserve Session" and open Sublime Text again to start off where you were (i.e., all unsaved changes will still be there)

thanks, opengl seems to have done the trick for me.

I've added the "renderer opengl" line to my general preferences, but this still happens to me on occasion. Not that big a deal, but it happens.
