Either pressing upward so that the line containing the first match is placed at the second topmost row or advancing with the search to the next match (if any) ~fixes~ the strange behaviour of the left-arrow key.
I tried to reproduce this behaviour with small textfiles (~1-10KB) but the bug only appeared when working with the mentioned big texfile (~15MB) which can be downloaded here:
Look for allmods_2007-xx-xx.rar, which is updated daily hence i did not link directly, archive size is ~2MB.
What are your lister settings?
i just retried. It turns out that you have to have the Textcursor [F6] enabled.
Now do a search in the file for e.g. "necros" which should find "Asylum\Necros\crusader - no regret - carnage and mayhem (middle eastern style).amf". Now press the left arrowkey to get the effect. You can move the cursor to the right or down first as well. As long as you don't continue the search or travel more than ~70 lines down (with 1280x1024 resolution) and having the first match still at the topmost line the weird effect happens.
I did.you have to have the Textcursor [F6] enabled
The first hit is: "Asylum\Necros\crusader - no regret - bleep2.amf "Now do a search in the file for e.g. "necros" which should find "Asylum\Necros\crusader - no regret - carnage and mayhem (middle eastern style).amf"
Asylum\Necros\crusader - no regret - carnage and mayhem (middle eastern style).amf is the second hit.
Anyway no matter whether I go to the first his or the second, I still cannot get that arrow-left bug.
BTW the standard configuration is that a search hit is shown in line 3 not line 0 - so thats why I would like to see your Lister configuration, maybe it oly happens with for example a certain height of the window or something else.
Please just show us the [Lister] section of your wincmd.ini file - for example:
Code: Select all
[Lister] textwidth=81 binwidth=75 SearchGoBack=3 BmpStartup=1 Multimedia=1 IView=0 IViewPath=C:\Programmer\IrfanView\i_view32.exe Maximized=0 x=128 y=60 dx=769 dy=656 Wrap=1 HTMLasText=0 LinkBraces=1 RTF=1 BgSelColor=255 FgSelColor=16777215 LeftMargin=200 RightMargin=200 TopMargin=200 BottomMargin=200 TabWidth=2 Caret=1 Font4=Lucida Console,10 Font5=Arial,10 CenterBitmap=1

You are correct. It was quite late that night.petermad wrote:The first hit is: "Asylum\Necros\crusader - no regret - bleep2.amf "
Indeed i have changed it to be the first row rather than the third. Now I just tried with the default setting, it doesn't make any difference, the issue still occurs for me.petermad wrote:BTW the standard configuration is that a search hit is shown in line 3 not line 0
I permanently removed all entries containing default settings from my wincmd.ini to keep it small, readable and fast to load. Hence my Lister-section is rather small compared to yours.

Thank you petermad, and Christian of course.
