RSSOwl occasionally stickies the wrong article when I manually mark it.
When it gets into this state, I can't seem to get it to sticky the correct
(selected) article at all, it will just keep stickying/unstickying the same
article regardless of which one is selected, until I exit and restart.
This has happened to me 2-3 times over the last week, I'm not sure yet what
steps can be taken to reproduce it, but I figured I'd post this now as 2.1 is
nearing release. I'll try to figure out how to reproduce it and post again
here if I find any pattern.
I guess this is not related to a GR synced feed, you get this issue
immediately? Maybe send over the error log (export from Help).
Yes, it's on a regular feed. If I have an article selected and click Sticky,
or use the keyboard shortcut for the same, a different article (in a
completely different feed) actually gets toggled.
I've e-mailed you the error log. I hope it helps. Thanks!
The log is not showing anything related. Try run Tools > Clean Up, maybe that
I have run the Cleanup optimizations a few times and it still occurs, although
I haven't deleted any articles.
It's happening fairly frequently, in a few days I might be able to figure out
steps to reproduce it (unless it's just something that happens after a certain
amount of runtime).
Ok let me know.
I haven't yet figured out how to cause it to start occurring, but here's an
additional observation. (This is on Mac OS X btw.)
If I use the menu (News/Mark/Sticky) it marks the correct article. If I use
the button in the article header, it also works correctly. It seems to only be
an issue when using the keyboard shortcut. And, it (so far) only seems to
occur with the Sticky marking, not with Read/Unread. I haven't tried with
Delete or Labels yet.
It also seems to be getting "stuck" on a particular article in the Mark Sticky
function. In other words, I can browse around several feeds, folders, etc. and
if I use the Mark Sticky shortcut it's always the same (wrong) article that
Btw I mentioned before that it seemed to also occur when using the Sticky
button. Either I was incorrect, or it's inconsistent, or I was hallucinating.
For now I think it's safe to ignore that since I can't reproduce it. I'll test
again though once RSSOwl gets into this state and if I can ever reproduce it
again, I'll mention it here. At the moment I can only reproduce it with the
This narrows it down. I assume you are using the Classic layout? The key
binding looks into the current active feeds tab and obtains the selection of
news from there and then executes it.
Yes, Classic layout.
Still can't force it to occur. However, some additional notes:
So if for example I have 5 articles, and #2 is selected: shortcut for Sticky
will mark article #4 as Sticky/Unsticky. Then if I select article # 5, and use
News/Mark/Sticky, article #5 will (correctly) be toggled. Then if I select
article #1, and use the keyboard Sticky again, article #5 will again get
toggled (this time inappropriately).
