Pretty much what the title says.

Both the hotkey and notification area menu work the first time you start Qonsole. But once you hide it, nothing happens if you try to show the console again (either through the hotkey or menu action).

Is there an error log that gets dumped anywhere? Let me know if there's anything I can help with.

I'm on Windows 8 64-bit, running console with cygwin

    Hmm, I haven't added any debugging log/tools... Ill work on that...
    But, do you get any error messages?
    Post your "Qonsole_settings.ini" here. Also, try deleting your settings file and restart Qonsole.

    Regards

    I did as you suggested, and I re-applied my settings one at a time.

    Things seem to be working great now, here's my new .ini file:

    [Settings]
    CMD_Path=C:\cygwin64\bin\bash.exe
    HideOnInActive=0
    ShowCentered=1
    ShowDebugMenu=0
    CmdPaste=1
    AutoWinActivate=0
    ReduceMemory=0
    RunOnStartUp=0
    Console_Mode=Cmd
    TransparencyPercent=20
    OpenHotkey=F1
    CMD_Width=2560
    CMD_Height=1000
    CMD_StartUpArgs=--login -i
    [Animation]
    Speed=10
    Delay=20
    dx=25
    GuiBGDarken_Increment=6
    GuiBGDarken_Max=0
    GuiBGDarken_Color=0x1A1A1A

    Ah and there it is... Speed=0 under the [Animation] section is probably what did it.

    /derp

    Sorry, user error here. Maybe disallow speed values <1? I think my logic at the time was that 0 speed would disable the animation... sorry!

    Derp is right... Looks like I forgot to set a minimum of '0'.
    I could also add an option to disable the animation. But, for the moment, you can just set it to a large number like 100, until I release an update this afternoon.
    Thanks for your insight. It is truly appreciated.

    Will be fixed in v1.2.3 :P
