Pop-out window bug

Good Afternoon TOAD Team,

 Again somehow I missed this new capability, I think was released with MDI/SDI windows; I've switched back to MDI, since on any window I can right click the left corner of the window bar and pop out a window as an SDI window (you can reverse the process with a link in the upper left corner of the popped out window, too).  This bug has a simple work around, but happens in 13.0 through today's latest beta, 13.3.0.32.    I start any connection with the schema browser and my default "Object list" choice is Favorites, not the TOAD default of Tables.   When I pop-in or pop-out a window when Favorites is selected, the window is blank:

 The work-around, is pick Tables, and then pick Favorites, the content is then restored.

Hi Larry,

Can you give me some steps to make the Schema Browser come up 'blank' and on Favorites like that? I tried but can't make it happen.

This is what I tried:

  1. Make schema browser auto-open when connection is made
  2. Set default object type on schema browser to Favorites.
  3. Make a connection in Toad. Schema Browser opens to favorites (but it isn't blank)
  4. Pop-out the Schema Browser. (for me, it popped out OK, not blank)
  5. Popped it back in. (still looks good here)

Thanks.

Good Afternoon John,

Any time I pop-in or pop-out a schema browser window when Favorites is the choice, it is blank. For the screen shot I changed to Tables and correctly
popped-out, then chose Favorites and Popped-in, took screen shot.

Sorry, I made you path long in my explanation of why I discovered this bug.

Hm, so looks like my steps should do it.
I also tried:

  • setting text size to 125% (in windows settings)
  • using 64 bit beta
  • using "direct" connect method on login window
  • setting SB to a schema other than my login schema

Anything else that I might be missing?

Also, I am curious - if you just un-maximize and and then re-maximize the schema browser, does that solve it? I have seen in the past sometimes controls don't paint correctly and just resizing them makes them repaint.

Good Morning John,

Pretty through for one image; I also keep my TOAD settings on OneDrive, so all (two sets, production and development accounts) my workstations
are in sync without backup and recovery of TOAD settings. My TOAD beta support bundle is attached, too.
