Recent Files not always showing.

Post by cking2 » Tue Nov 27, 2018 7:03 pm

Product, version and build: PrimalScript, 7.4.118.0
32 or 64 bit version of product: 32 bit
Operating system: Windows 10, 1809, 17763.134
32 or 64 bit OS: 64 bit

I just updated to 7.4.118.0 from 7.4.115.0 (and got Sapien updates 1.1.29.0) today. Strange issue. When I click the file tab, typically I see the recent opened files/recently edited files list but instead it seems that the 'New' has focus and I see only templates.

Here it gets weird--if I have a script open, I then get what I expect (the recent files) or if I close all (including the start page) I also see recent files.

So, actually...if the Start Page has focus and I click the file tab, I only see the templates. I have to either close the start page or open another script to see recent files.

About the same as I explained but to be clear, if I have another script open and click start page then I still don't see the recent files when click the files tab.

I don't see anything wrong with it. But, I understand what you're experiencing.

When starting the application with the Start Page, click at the File Tab and only the templates are displayed.
Then, with a file is open, then click on the File Tab and the "Recently Opened Files" will be shown.

Normally, recently opened files are displayed in the Start Page.

Now, I would be a great idea to see the "Recently Opened files" listed below the Templates at the same time too.

Probably some change in the UI library. I will investigate....

This should be fixed with the just released 2019 version.
