Erratic behaviour with detached menus

Andre Oliveira shared this problem 5 years ago

Detached menus do not work as they should. When I select certain buttons they are automatically "deselected" when I click somewhere else. See this example:


I select the "Rectangle" widget, and when I try to hide it, it not only deselects my selection when I click on the canvas, but it also "locks" my left mouse button.

This happens whenever the menu is detached. The "Add event" button needs to be pressed twice to work.

Please let me know if my explanation is clear enough to recreate this bug.

I am working on a Macbook Pro 15" Retina, with an external display.

Hi Andre,

is it possible to share a short video of what it happens?

does it happen with any project?

Best regards.


On sec 13 I click on the canvas. But the mouse works as if I had clicked and holded. And the clicked button ("hide" in this case, is then deselected!)

Please be aware that this only happens when the menu is detached, when the menu is either on the left or right sides of the canvas this does not happens (namely going to "View" > "Reset workspace").

Hope this helps.



Hi Andre,

thanks for the quick answer and the video.

I have tested it and it's a bug that only happens in Mavericks. We will try to fix for the next update.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
