Show/Hide Ruler Problems

I’m posting this to make sure you’re aware of a problem with the “Show Ruler” menu item:

Note that the ruler is visible, yet “Show Ruler” appears on the menu. Selecting it will hide the ruler. It can also happen that the Hide Ruler option appears when the ruler is not present.

I’ve also seen that menu option be inappropriately grayed out.

I don’t have time right now to investigate this further.


Split window with one ruler on and the other off, but looking at the menu without the appropriate split having active focus?

If yes, that’s not an error. If no, well…



Pretty sure that wasn’t it. This can also happen:

That is, “Show Ruler” is both grayed out and inappropriate. That can happen even if it isn’t the same doc in both windows.

Looks to me like your cursor is actually in the Header bar, not the text, though.



Good catch. Yes, I think that explains the second instance, and it might be something similar that explains the first.
