Cannot select last visible plugin in stuffed menu.

Found this odd behavior today.

When a menu or sub menu is very full, I can't select the last shown plugin. Clicking on it does nothing. In the screenshot - I can't run Lightning.

I know I'm not a typical user - with many more plugins installed than I need. I'm currently doing some compatibility checks on all the plugins. That's why I have plenty of them installed.

This behavior is not limited to one menu. I've had it repro on different menus (Adjustments, Effects, Effect > Tools and Effect > Render) at different times. A slightly smaller monitor changes how much is visible in the menu, but the last item is still not able to be selected.

Seems to be limited to plugins, and not the built in effects. Scrolling the menu down changes which item is not selectable.

I'll check 3.5.11 when I get home tonight.

I'm using 3.5.11 and have no problems using a plugin at the bottom of a list - or using the arrow to move to others lower down.

I probably have far too many plugins installed too - mostly versions of ones I'm working on - so my menus are also over full!

 

Hope that helps.

Does NOT repro on 3.5.11.

I can't get this behaviour to repeat following a restart. Some sort of transient strangeness.

If I come across it again I'll try and remember the lead up actions.

It's back.  Straight from restart and rebooting doesn't resolve it.

 

The highlighting of the entry does work, but intermittently.  It alternates with the plugin tooltip.  A disconcerting pulsating effect :noes:

 

If I hit the entry at just the right time it will fire up the plugin.

You get it on other menu items or just the last one showing at the edge of the screen (like I do)?

The tooltip pops up under the cursor, so the cursor is no longer over the menu item, which makes the tooltip go away, which puts the cursor back on the menu item, which makes the tooltip appear under the cursor, so the cursor is no longer over the menu item, which makes the tooltip go away, which puts the cursor back on the menu item, which makes the tooltip appear under the cursor, so the cursor is no longer over the menu item, which makes the tooltip go away, which puts the cursor back on the menu item, which makes the tooltip appear under the cursor, so the cursor is no longer over the menu item, which makes the tooltip go away, which puts the cursor back on the menu item, which makes the tooltip appear under the cursor, so the cursor is no longer over the menu item, which makes the tooltip go away, which puts the cursor back on the menu item, which makes the tooltip appear under the cursor...
