Bug testing workbench
Otherwise we will find ouselves later down the road with an intimidating amount of bug fixes to test and evaluate.
Paul and Steve have already put their shoulders to wheel and have generated and committed fixes for a fair number of bugs.
In order to assist this process I am preparing to allocate time to testing bug fixes on W10 as soon as possible after they become available in a nightly. This of course only tests on one Windows platform and I am not empowered to close bugs.
- As of 13Feb16 I now have a Macbook Pro (El Capitan) available for testing - so now can cover two platforms Windows and OS X.
To be tested
- 122 P4: Cursor no longer moves when dragging a selected point label Better but not quite good enough - cusor follows but stutters
not testable on latest Mac nightly 21Jun16
- 868 P3: Can't navigate through docked toolbars using "move through active windows" shortcuts
- 1360 P4: Confusing error messages in Analyze contrast Better but still two different messages at steps 5 and 8 - not tested yet on Mac
- 1196 P3: Focus gets trapped in modeless dialogues when using ALT+F6 or ALT+SHIFT+F6
- 1249 P3: Mac OS X: Dragging tracks does not vertically scroll the project
- 1409 P4: Contrast: Closing "Help on the Internet" returns focus to main window Commit log implies fixed - but Bugzilla doesn't show that as Gale re-opened it
- 868 P3: Can't navigate through docked toolbars using "move through active windows" shortcuts
- 122 P4: Cursor no longer moves when dragging a selected point label - This is better, but not really good enough - it just looks a little odd.
- 1201 P4: Mac OS X: Many tooltips missing Needs re-opening - no tooltips on Mac for the Toolbar drag handles
testable on Windows on 23Jun16 nightly
- 1223 P4: Click Track causes Audacity to crash when creating very many clicks - NEW FIX so RETEST needed
- 1202 P4: Mac OS X: Unwanted slider interactions with focus and Device Toolbar.
- 1409 P4: Contrast: Closing "Help on the Internet" loses focus
- 1193 P3: Timeline text too large/lower tooldock text far too small.
- 1370 P2: mw2html: Filipino pages present.
- 470 P4: Manage Curves dialog UI - buttons incorrectly enabled, resize corrupts appearance
- 1338 P2 Mac: Opening non-RTP effect while Voxengo Span is open freezes Audacity, as does opening Span options.
- 1273 P4: Metadata Editor: Closing/cancelling editor when a cell is open requires two clicks (and asserts on Linux)
- 1378 P2: Screenshot Tools images are mostly white background only.
- 1252 P3: Mac OS X: Cycling between track and tooldocks gets trapped, especially in Project Rate.
- 1416 P4: Focus issues with Timeline Quick-Play

- 320 P4: SHIFT-clicking in a different track does not select in that track
- new "Edit" in label dropdown menu
- 1169 P2: Spectrogram scale range setting only applied for linear scale - ok on Linux 02Feb16 too - and tests ok on El Capitan 16Feb16 and on W10 28Jan16
- 1277 P2: Undoing edits made in Spectrogram view with spectral content present undoes track spectrogram settings. - tests ok on Linux 20Jun16, on Mac 21Jun16 and W10 21Jun16
- 66 P4: (On Mac) About box not modeless - Looks to work ok on Mac El Capitan d6187f6 21Jun16 - tested ok on Mac 21Jun16 (and only affected Mac)
- 1353 P4: Plot Spectrum assertion error and crash in Debug builds - tested ok on Mac 21Jun16 debug DMG (and only affected Mac)
