locked 2.6.0 video oddity (bug?) #IssueReport


Dave Corio
 

System: Win 10 Home - Intel i5-2400 16G RAM - All current updates
WSJT-X Version 2.6.0

RC1 works fine so far, with one minor issue. At the start of every decode period, all items between the lower menu bar (CQ Only,Log QSO....) and the status bar (Receiving, FT8...) shift to the left maybe 25 pixels (guesstimate) then shift back to their proper position. The entire process takes about one second. This happens every decode period, in every mode and every band.

Reception/decoding are not affected and QSOs proceed as normal. I've done a system restart as well as a cold start with no change. This may very well be unique to my 11-year old system, as nobody else has reported it. It's very minor, as it's just an annoyance.
I've posted a .jpg file with the affected area highlighted in red on Dropbox with the address of

I think that for checking it's useful to know which is the screen
resolution. I guess it is a problem related to it.

I have exactly the same problem with identical symptoms to those reported by Dave.

System: Dell Dimension E520, Core2 Duo 6600 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM. Running Windows 10 fully updated. Screen resolution 1920 x 1200.


Pietro Molina
 

I didn't have this problem, using 1920x1080 and the WSJT-X main window
about 900x700, 1000x700, or full screen. I5, W10 pro.
Do you see it in any size of main windows?

I'll try some different sizes with I7, W10 pro and 3 different screens.

present in FT4 and Hound modes.

In my system the behaviour seems to be independent of window size.

I don't ever remember any previous version of WSJT-X exhibiting this issue; it appears to be new to 2.6.0. Apart from that the new version seems to be working well.


Dave Corio
 

Good idea Pietro!

Monitor 1 (Main) 24" - HDMI - 1920 X 1080 (max)
WSJT-X Main
JTAlert Main & Callsigns
FLRig

Monitor 2 - 24" (wide format) - VGA - 1600 - 900 (max)
DXKeeper
WSJT-X Waterfall
DXView

I tried reducing the resolution multiple steps with no impact. Tried moving the WSJT-X main window to the secondary monitor: also no change.

Keep in mind that this is an 11-year-old Dell Optiplex 990 with the video card built in to the motherboard and sharing memory with main RAM. That said, 16G RAM and quad core 3.10 Ghz speed doesn't even breathe hard when decoding 20M full of FT8 signals, No prev ious version of WSJT-X has exhibited this behavior.

I meant to add that during the short period when when the display has momentarily shifted left, the green 'dB' bar indicator at the extreme left of the window disappears but the adjacent scale does not. At the same time the reading below the display changes to 0.

For me, this screen shift occurs in the “dark mode.” When I restart WSJT-X in the “normal mode,” the shifting stops.

That was it here. Changing from dark mode eliminated the problem.

Still not a major issue, but I hope it might be addressed somewhere down the road.

2.6.0 still performing well!

That's interesting -- same here.

I much prefer dark mode and it'd be great if this albeit very minor glitch could be fixed.

Try the ‘high contrast’ option in Windoze 10…works for me..takes some
fiddling but I like it

I tried it and I fiddled, but have to admit I didn't care for it. Tried a lot of combinations of colors but couldn't find anything that was as good as dark mode. Since the "flick" is only a very minor distraction I may go back to dark mode as for me, at least, it's easier to see.

Thanks for the suggestion Eric!

All in one’s preferences, I like it better than dark……
