Bug reports / Report paper sizes in use : NOT WORKING
« Last post by nightslayer23 on October 04, 2017, 04:15:05 AM »
Usually I trust this tool to a T but now it seems I maybe can't...

I tried a bunch of 41 pdfs and got a dramatically under par assessment of how many pages there is.

I have attached the example as both "split by pdf sizes" and the combined file. Same results!

Bug reports / Re: Scripts manager crashes with stack overflow when new/edit selected
« Last post by RTT on October 04, 2017, 02:10:30 AM »
Re-arranged the position of the screens (from side to side to top/bottom).  Hit "apply". 

Bingo!  There's the editor.  On the second screen.
Great!
Don't the Windows key+arrow_left/arrow_right work to move windows across screens oriented top/bottom? Never tested.

At the moment I'm blaming my display driver. later this week (or early next) I'll see if I can reproduce the problem.
Let me know if I need to fix something.

Observation: if I fire up the editor from the manager, I have only one RTT app on the task bar.  If I do it via CTRL-click, then I end up with two instances.
Two buttons in the taskbar, but only one scripts editor window, or two windows also?

I'm leaning towards your suggestion that the display is popping up somewhere off screen.
Bingo!

Rebooted. No joy.
Borrowed a screen from my client, fired up in "duplicate mode".  No Joy.
Changed to Extended Desktop.  No Joy.

You can reset/set the position by deleting/editing the values under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PDFShellTools\MyScripts registry key, but you probably don't have permission to run the regedit tool on your system? But you can use the linked above WinSpy++ tool to manually set the window position.

But if indeed the problem is the window being off-screen, it's strange the Windows Key+arrow-up, arrow-left or arrow-right shortcuts are not working!

Instead of opening the scripts editor from the manager, try ...
Interesting - I get a RTT icon on the taskbar and task manager shows a task (as does ALT-TAB ) called PDF-ShellTools- My Scripts but I can't switch to it.

I can close it from the task bar, in which case I get a "save changes?" message if I've ALT-TAB'd to the not-there window.

Instead of opening the scripts editor from the manager, try open it directly to see if anything changes. To do this, hold down the CTRL key, while clicking a script menu item from the shell context PDF-ShellTools>My Scripts sub menu. This will open the clicked script directly in the editor, from where you can edit, run or create new ones (if the editor indeed shows up this way).

Try inspecting the windows with this WinSpy++ tool, to check, and eventually edit, the state and position of the window with "Scripts editor" as caption, under the Manager.exe process.

Nothing suspicious from the mini dump. The main thread is just running OnIdle tasks, waiting for input, and there isn't evidence of any unhandled exception.

I suspect you have the scripts editor window placed off-screen. If that's the case, after clicking the manager script edit button, hold down the Windows key and press the up-arrow, to maximize, or the right or left-arrow a few times to bring the window to the active screen.
No joy.  I agree with your analysis, it's like it's waiting for input.  And stopping from "edit" gets a "can't, program is waiting for input" message from Task Manager.   

Still getting "stack overflow" if I click "new" and stop with TaskManager, though.

I wonder if I've got a display driver problem which is causing this behaviour? 

I'll play with a few things later this week (got some promises to keep before then) and report back.

Thanks again.
