WHAT IS THE BUG
The Home and Back button for the Library doesn’t work when the window is unmaximized.
I don’t know if that’s the right term. I’m referring to when it’s in normal mode when newly opened in Windows. Also called restore if the window is in maximized view.
HOW TO REPRODUCE IT
Open Anytype and keep the window unmaximized.
Open Objects/Relations Library.
Try clicking the Home or the Back arrow
THE EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
The Home and Back buttons won’t work unless the window is maximized. If you click it repeatedly, it will only maximize the window, but then the buttons will work again.
Windows 10 — 0.29.1
I remember experiencing this on other pages, but when I was testing it for the bug report, I find that it’s now restricted to the Library.
@Kerstie could you check whether this issue is resolved as soon as you make the window larger (but not maximized!)?
Maximized: no issues
Unmaximized but large window: Library is shown as modal so no home button and no issue
Unmaximized but small window: Library is shown as Object (so not as modal), and now the home button is visible, but non-clickable
This looks exactly like this issue:
When the Library (containing Relations and Types) is opened in the modal view, on a small-screen device, or a small window (less than ~1100px in width), the navigation features (i.e. Home, Back, Forward) become unresponsive.
To escape this menu, the user must press [ESC] to close it, or navigate via keyboard shortcuts ([CTRL + H] for home, etc.)
Open a [somewhat] small Anytype window (less than ~1100px in width)
Open the Library via the dashboard / home page
Attempt to cl…
Ah, yes, it looks similar. It happens when the window is small, like in that third photo. As soon as I maximize and it turns into that modal, the issue is resolved. It also worked when I tried the larger window.
