Wrong selection in file list when using Shift key

#1 Post by H.Seldon » 21.10.2020, 01:22

I am running version 831 portable on Windows 10 x64.
When selecting files using Shift key, the selection is randomly incorrect.
If I select the first file, then Shift-Select the last file, not all files are seleected.
If I select one file, then Shift-Select another file, even the very next one, sometimes all files are selected.
I am using NC-mode with 'Extended selection'. However, the problem still exists if I don't use NC-mode.
This problem does not exist in version 828.

I see the problem only if the "Hover time for select item" is defined.
Try to deactivate the option and check then.

Thanks for responding.
It doesn't seem to make any difference whether I have hover delay enabled or not.
Shift-select still does not select items properly in version 831. Version 828 works perfectly.

The issue does seem to be related to 'Hover time for select' setting.
I was confused by the setting. I thought it only applied to 'Hot track only'
I see now that had that been true, it would have been grayed out with 'Hot track only' disabled.

In version 828, I have Hover delay set for 200 ms.
I also enable 'Open file/folder with single click'.
In this way I can hover over an item to select, then move down the list and Shift-hover over last item to select all in between.
This works flawlessly in version 828.
In version 831, with same settings, not all items get selected properly.
If I set hover delay to 0, and disable single click activations, selection does works properly as Karol suggested above.

I think I can confirm this issue. I've experienced it many times, but as H.Seldon mentions, it is very difficult to isolate a 100% reproducible scenario in which is always occurs (which is why I hadn't reported it yet).

I do not use the NC mode, but do experience it.

It seems to rear its ugly head when you have multiple items selected in a pane, and then select different multiple items in that same pane, typically with shift.

I'm guessing it's not random, but so far I have not been able to determine the exact pattern in which it occurs.

I've learned to look very closely at which is actually selected, versus what I know I tried to select.
