Not seen this particular CHS behaviour before - looks like an odd episodic non-fatal bug or something.
I was editing several separate clips today, when I kicked myself for making a mistake: I had just pasted a text string, replacing the existing text, into the beginning of a clip's Title
field in the Menu
pane, and then started typing some more text after that, and then noticed that, instead of typing the new text after the end
of the string I had just pasted, I was actually typing it in immediately before the beginning
of that string.
The cursor was a blue colour (normally is black).
After correcting the situation, I thought "How did I make that silly mistake?"
So I repeated what I had just done:
- COPY some text from within a clip.
- Mouse select the text in that same clip's Title field that I wanted to replace.
- at which point, I noticed that the cursor - which should have been black and at the end of the string just pasted
- was in fact now blue and positioned immediately before the first character of the string I had just pasted.
I repeated this with three other clips, and it was consistently repeatable for each.
However, after re-sorting and working with CHS (was busy saving clips) for about half an hour (without any intervening restart), it was no longer repeatable, and the colour of the cursor was restored to its usual black (not blue). I had not noticed the point at which it changed.EDIT 2017-03-19 0008hrs:
As an afterthought, I wondered whether this might have something to do with the cursor in CHS being different
(thicker) when editing inside the Title
field in the Memo
pane, whereas it is a thin line when editing inside the clip text.
