Rapid screen flashing after upgrading to greater than jdk1.8_131


After upgrading the Java runtime above build 131, when editing a segment, the application window switches between active and inactive states very quickly, which prevents editing operations.

Good to have you help us on this. Your proposal to disable the cog and use the right-click menu sounds good. However, I don't seem to be able to make the menu appear by right-clicking so I just want to be sure that we don't disable it completely for Windows users. For me, the cog icon always appears immediately that the text edit field becomes active (i.e. after double-clicking). Perhaps you enabled right-click in your local version?

After reading your message, I found the right click menu was working on my Mac, but not my Windows machine. I have since enabled it for Windows in the code.

Would you like me to disable the cog? Or find a solution to keep the cog working?

If you want me to disable the cog, do you want me to only disable it just on Windows, or on all operating systems?

My decision is influenced by timing and cost.

Disabling the cog and enabling the right-click on Windows will give me something to go back to users with in the short term which is good given a fair amount of feedback right now.

Would you have any estimate of how much more time you’d need to invest in order to keep the cog whilst fixing the flashing?

I would love to have a right click build for Monday.

If the Mac doesn’t suffer from flashing then you can leave the cog and right-click menu as is.

Resolving this issue, as it was fixed in PR #22.

Cog is disabled on Windows; the functionality has been added to the right-click context menu.

Verified by several linguists.
