issue #4716 [MacOS][view panel] Arrows of data properties overlap with scroll bar

Post by dxp.dev »

OS: macOS 10.16

Version: 0.20.25288 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: master
Hash: bbb557aab6129efd9486d6df19f06c2976fdb7e5

Hello,

There is a UI problem in MacOS:

Use-case : The properties of the data can be edited (such as length with up and down arrows, pocket type with a drop down menu by clicking on the down arrow, etc.).

Problem: The scroll bar overlaps those arrows, and when clicking on them, the scroll bar has priority and instead of modifying the properties, it just make the data window scroll.

See attached video : https://mon-partage.fr/f/X8GfurTh/

Proposed solution: The editing arrows shouldn't overlap with the scroll bar.

EDIT : Added bug tracker info : issue #4716

I cannot confirm. After scrolling I have to wait for a second or half, then the scrollbar disappears and a I can access the up and down arrows without interference with the scrollbar.

Can you please try with the normal theme?
If that doesn't work, please try with a plain vanilla config file.

With the "no-stylesheet" theme, I get the same behavior as you : Scroll bar disappears and I can clic on the arrows without problem.

So it is a stylesheet problem.

I have the same problematic behavior with all the proposed stylesheets (Behave Dark, all the Dark-*, Darker-*, Light-* and proDark.

Is there a way to trick the stylesheets so that the scroll bar has the same behavior as the no-stylesheet one ?

Did you try a plain vanilla config where only the style sheet is changed?

Yes, I completely deleted FC and the config files few days ago, and reinstalled it, then changed the stylesheet and that behavior was already there.

Can a non-Mac user please check this?

On Windows as soon as the user squashes the Property panel to cause the scroll bar to appear the up/down arrows and combo box drop down arrow all shift to the left so they don't overlap (as would be expected), tested with Behave Dark stylesheet using:

I just tested this on

OS: macOS 10.15
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.20.25450 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: master
Hash: ed8e63270827afddd2f3e59cea2384af66e0f0d5
Python version: 3.9.1
Qt version: 5.15.2
Coin version: 4.0.0
OCC version: 7.5.0
Locale: English/United States (en_US)

I cannot reproduce the issue -- my guess is that this is/was a Qt bug that has been resolved since 5.12. @dxp.dev, are you using a daily build, or are you self-compiling? If self-compiling, can you update your Qt installation and try it again?
