Reminder popup: Selection marker not pointing to selected item sometimes

Post by Pastafarian » Thu Jan 30, 2020 8:16 am

Hi,

I have noticed that sometimes the selection indicator (the arrow) in the reminder summary popup window does not point to the actually selected item. Here are the steps that lead to the issue:
  1. The popup is open. Some items are listed.
  2. Some other reminder fires and places its reminder on the list.
  3. Internally, the new item is selected, but the indicator does not change.
  4. Any operation (snooze, dismiss) will now affect the new item instead of the marked one, which is unexpected.
Please see the following screenshots for illustration:

That behaviour is somewhat confusing and made me dismiss the wrong reminder a lot of times, that's why I finally decided to report it here. I'd really appreciate a fix. Thank you.

Best regards,
Alex

I wasn't able to duplicate the problem. However, I made some changes that might fix it. These changes are in version 2020.03. To update, click the "Help -> Check for Updates" menu command.

If you still see in the problem in version 2020.03, you can work around the problem by configuring reminders to appear in separate windows. Click the "Options -> Reminders" menu command and uncheck the box labeled "Combine popup reminders into a single window".

Hi Dan,

I did a quick test with the new version and the issue seems to be gone now. Thanks for fixing.
