I have a weird problem,

50% of my line disappears while typing... did have someone the same problem?

i am really crazy now, it is not funny to

written some lines again and again...

i have NIS2004 ( =norton) uninstalled, i have read the logbook from windows,

nothing found!

i have also experienced this problem.

i think it may

be a focus issue, i personaly quite like the unix console method (mIRC stole it as well) where you select text and it copys

to clipboard on mouse release

this means the cursor could then be refocused on the text input field again at the same

time.

additional to this i have on occasion had a message typed and for some reason whenever i hit enter it just

beeps at me and wont send.

it often involves changing window focus several times to resolve.

Well, honestly , I have no clue at all why this is

happening.

Are you just typing normally, and perhaps, are you hitting a certain letter when it happens? I will need to

get some very detailed instances when/why this is happening.
Also, <b>Email</b> the errors.txt file that is

located in your IceChat5\Logs folder to support, and I can see if there is any tell tale signs.

But what I mostly

need to know is when it happens. If I can not duplicate the error myself, it will almost be impossible for me to fix

it.

And what part of the text gets deleted, the beginning, end, middle, random parts?

Thanks

well.... for example

i type this: "hello again this must be

funn"
(and then i see a flash as if i had entered but i dont and now i read "e funn" in the inputbox, all other words are

gone, i do nothing specially. and "e funn" stays in the inputbox)

snerf.... really i dont know why it happened, i

thought it was norton realtime check. but i have norton uninstalled and it happened again. it happened sometimes every

minutes. sometimes it is 5 minutes. i also have read logbook of windows xp: NOTHING happened at that time.

i just

take a look for the error.txt in icechat5\log and i dont found that file? the log is full of information about all chat

where i have visit and and but no error.txt ?

For the next Beta of 5.20, the inputbox has been totally

re-designed. It will now be a resizable, multiline edit box. So far, none of the problems that were plagueing the old

version, have happened to the new version. It will need more testing tho, to make sure.
