v16 - hidden popup window (multi screen), unable to close
« on: September 02, 2022, 07:36:09 pm »
Hi,

I'm using EA 16 64 bits to work on an MDG. When I edit the tagged values and open the ShapeScript editor, the popup window is nowhere to be seen.
This is due to the use of 2 screens. Moving EA to a different screen sorts the issue as I properly get the popup window.

With EA15, such situation can be fixed as a transparent window matching the hidden popup is visible. With EA16, there's nothing.
This issue is not limited to the ShapeScript editor, however with this windows the Esc key doesn't close it (as it does for others) so I have to kill EA process to restart.

I also had the issue when creating a diagram.

Hi Guillaume,

This is not a solution, but pressing Alt+F4 can close the window. You can avoid killing the process when you face this issue.

HTH,
