Bookmarks not working right

Post by rdwray »

Bookmark 3 was set to Proverbs 11 and I set it to Proverbs 13 and then switched to bookmark 2 which was Isaiah 6. I then closed TW and reopened it and bookmark 3 had changed back to Proverbs 11. I had noticed that it did not seem that I was getting the right location in the past, but I put an effort to try it this time.

I just tried it a second time and the bookmark held. Did it a third time after setting bookmark 3 to 14 and it defaulted back to 13. It is definitely inconsistent.

I have tried to check this issue and it works ok for me. So I checked to see if new bookmarks were saved at shutdown. The values are in the config.ini in the [Bookmarks] section

perhaps you file has been damaged and has two sections of the same name?

When you close and reopen theWord, do give it time to write the file.

I noticed this in the changelog 1505

- saving config.ini is now crash-resistant; if something goes wrong during saving, the old config.ini is restored.



I wonder if you are getting a silent crash, and the old config is being loaded.

If I close TW while still viewing the verse and reopen it, everything is fine, it just happens when I switch bookmarks before closing TW.

Problem is that it is erratic and will not be an easy fix - I can live with it, just wanted to let you know.

Now I am requesting a fix. I have two bookmarks 2 and 3. If I open TW and it is on 2 and I switch it to 3 and close TW, when I open it again it is on 2 and vise versa. I also had an issue where I had to restore config.ini when it did not show my configuration but acted as it was a new install.

Thank you for the feedback. I am sure it will help identify what has gone wrong.

One more thing. I reloaded 1530 after testing some of the others and found out that when I clicked on a bookmark and then clicked on the scripture, everything worked fine so it looks like the focus is not getting moved from the bookmark to the window.
