Bug: Right click\delete

Postby pecosbill » Wed Aug 20, 2008 5:18 am

I have 8.17 Eval. Ran into what I consider a very ugly bug. If you have a list of filters and for example, row 35 is highlighted in blue then right click on row 26 and select delete, it kills row 35 -- not the row you clicked on. I've lost good filters thanks to that and due to the very limited undo, wasn't able to pull them back so I had to recreate them.

FYI, I'm evaluating this for our sales staff to extract data from Amdocs' lousy reports and stick into Excel. This bug would confuse the hell out of them. I'm not even sure this product is sufficiently simple for them as they will be creating the fll's, but it has an attractive price due to the run time version availability. The Run Time info page appears to clarify that anything will run so that's good. I would like to see more info about variables and how to reference them in subfilters within the help file. Seems like there's lots of untapped power there which isn't clearly spelled out or I missed it. (No, I don't want to have to go external to a M$ tool). Also. the tutorial was waaay too basic for me. I've done a fair amount of (frustrating) egrep and found I like sed somewhat (haven't touched awk). If there was a info for my level in the tutorial then it needed to be broken out by skill level.

I've been using TextPipe for several years and this bug still sometimes catches me unawares.

I should have reported it ages ago, but somehow this action escaped my attention.

Why you think that this is a bug?
The order is obvious, first select filter then delete them...
Right mouse click is linked to the selected item.
