PageEdit 1.40

Hello,

I'm having a problem getting the PageEdit cursor to appear. After repeated re-initializations, I can get a usable cursor. Has anybody else had this problem or is there a work-around? Thanks...

@pete6055 - which OS (Linux, MacOS or Windows) and which version?

OK for me on Windows 10 version 2004.

Hmm no cursor or cursor is there but invisible? What happens if you click on some text in a file loaded into PageEdit and start typing? What has keyboard focus? Anything?

Skinny cursor - but we know about that.

Hi Kevin,

The session is totally unusable until I get a cursor. I can't do anything but close it. The problem doesn't happen every time but often enough to notice. It also doesn't matter if Sigil is closed or in the background, or if called from the start menu or open-page-with. Strange...

Can you try telling your AntiVirus/Defender software to leave PageEdit and its pieces alone?
If Sigil 1.4.3 runs and works, the problem can not be Qt related at all as PageEdit uses the exact same Qt version as Sigil and does not use the Python parts at all.

There is no sound technical reason PageEdit can not run if Sigil can run so I think the issues must be system/AV related?

Sure, Kevin, I'll give it a try and let you know if the problem reoccurs. Remember, it's intermittent, so I might not get back to you for a while.

Right now i have no AV errors or alerts so I don't know if your diagnosis is accurate. I'm leaning to a copy issue myself. We'll figure it out eventually - no hurry.
