Data input in OM 6.12

Hi,

It seems that something has changed with data input boxes.

In previous versions, I could have a layout with line breaks :

(
n (a)
r (b b)
)

And also copy/paste/modify to achieve this for example :

(
n (a)
r (b b)
r (b c)
)

In OM 6.12, all boxes are displayed on a single line :

(n (a) r (b b))

And when copy/pasting and putting the cursor in position to insert, it replaces everything instead of inserting :

r (b b)

Is it possible to have the previous versions behaviour in 6.12 ?

Hi, indeed that’s annoying. That must be slightly older than 6.12 (maybe 6.11).

I remember a change in the simple value box, whose objective was to make for hitting “enter” having the same effect when you first create the box (i.e., validate its contents and close) and when you edit it later.
I guess this can be fixed by using a different key combination, for instance alt+enter does a new line, and enter validates and exits text-editing mode.
I’ll look into it.

The copy/paste thing is a bug, I guess I can fix it easily.
I’ll let you know about all this. Stay tuned.

Hi Jean, actually, “enter” and “return” have the same effect. Maybe “return” could be assigned to new line so that “enter” is left for its current purpose ? In any case, any key combination would be fine with me as long as entering new lines is possible.

I’m happy that the copy/paste seems easy to fix and that you’ll have a look on both issues. I’m using them regularly to edit and clarify inputs in my patches. I hope it can be fixed.

I’ll stay tuned. Thanks in advance Jean !

You can try with the last update I’ve uploaded yesterday.
I think this works pretty much ok now.

Hi again Jean,
Just in case you didn’t noticed : the “enter” key is assigned to new line and the “return” key validates the content and closes the box.
I feel like it was supposed to be the contrary, “return” for new line and “enter” for validation/closing.
But I maybe wrong, please let me know.
