[GNC-dev] Currencies in Price Database UI gone weird in 3.4

GnuCash - Dev mailing list
I tried to get new exchange rates today for the first time since
updating to 3.4.   Tools / Price Database / Currencies was largely
unpopulated.  I looked in the file and the prices are there.  I reverted
to 3.3 and all looks well again.

Would someone else that uses one or two currencies other than their home
currency have a look if things are looking odd for them too?

Effect seems the same with both XML and sqlite backends.

Stock prices seem OK, it is just the currencies that have gone wrong.

I thought I'd ask here first as I can't see it mentioned on the bug list
and it seems to obvious a thing for everyone to have missed so possibly
something at my end though I can't think what.

I see the same thing.  I hadn’t noticed since I rarely open the price editor dialog and prices are still there and transactions find them when relevant.  If there’s not a bug report for this, you should file one.

I also noticed that it seems to be impossible to edit a transaction when the price editor is open.  It is permanently in front of the register window and seems to steal all keyboard events.

Thanks, Mike.

I mentioned your second point there too so you might want to take a look.

Indeed, all of the dialogs seem to have gone partly modal. I noticed that for the reconciliation dialog last week; I couldn’t switch to the register to edit a transaction with an error, and just now I found I couldn’t switch away from the security editor, either.

A change between 3.3 and 3.4 ? How odd...

Is that in a certain OS or all?

Wm sees it in Windows and I see it in MacOS. MacOS got Gtk updated for 3.4, Windows didn’t, so it’s not that.

I fiddled with this a bit today and found that the problem seems to be that switching windows doesn't quite work if you click inside the window. Mouse focus moves to the window but keyboard focus doesn't. Clicking in the window's title bar (where the close/hide/full-screen stoplight is) gets the keyboard focus to switch too.

I don't see anything like that on Windows.

John Ralls

I think the modal stuff is separate.  The original report about 3.4,
confirmed by MikeA, stands.

That is puzzling me too.

there doesn't seem to be anything obvious in
http://gnucash.org/news.phtml
that might have caused this.

Is it possible changes have been made that are not reported?

I am seeing the same problem with gnucash 3.4 on Ubuntu 18.04 x64 using
sqlite.

My home currency is AUD but I have USD, GBP and EUR transactions. All but
the USD price database entries have disappeared. Going back to earlier
versions of my file: Oct 2018 has USD entries (to AUD) and AUD entries (to
GBP); July 2018 has USD, AUD and EUR (to AUD).
