Close Error

When I click on File, Close with no source files loaded, I get:

Invalid window id, menu, item combination.
2751 in tc_menu_gettext,903 in update_menu in Main Program,1368 in close_text in Main program,1737 in source_window_filename in Main program,543 in Main program

At least TB doesn't crash, though. If I close the error message, I can continue to use TB.

CLOSE

Hi Tom,

Again I am sorry but I couldn't reproduce this bug either. I started from scratch with no files loaded (apart from Untitled1 the default filename). I then tried to close it from the FILE menu and it closed successfully. It also worked when I tried the red window close button and the blackon grey close button on the toolbar. In each case I got a dialog box saying are you sure you want to exit the editor. When I disabled this dialog box under settings, then the program still closed correctly but without the dialog box.

CLOSE Error

Now whenever I start TB, I start at Untitled10 and can't OPEN any more files. If I do one CLOSE, it goes back to Untitled1 but I can only OPEN one file. If I try to OPEN a second without closing the first, TB tells me all slots are full. I'm going to try reinstalling TB.

CLOSING

Hi Tom,

The new editor (like the old one) allows you to open 10 files concurrently. If you shut down and then restart the editor those ten files will be re-opened. If you close one file then you can only open one file because you will have filled all ten slots, i.e. the other nine will still be open. However many files you have open at the time you shut down, then those same files will be re-opened when you re-start.

I uninstalled, deleted the TB directory and reinstalled. So far, so good. I can OPEN and CLOSE files properly. Let's see it it stays good!

CLOSE Error

Try OPENing a source file then CLOSE it then try one more CLOSE.

CLOSING

Hi Tom,

I tried from scratch to close 1 file and the editor correctly asked if I wanted to exit the editor - I didn't get a second chance to close anymore. I also answered NO in the exit dialog box so the editor remained active. When I tried CLOSE again, it asked if I wanted to exit as normal.

I think it is important to get this bug resolved as soon as we can reproduce it. Let me know what happens when you re-install.
