Expression Editor Never Appears

As of the latest update, when I attempt to add a parameter and click on the Expression editor, the editor itself never appears. The application acts like it popped up somewhere tho. When I click into the EasyMorph interface, the computer will ding like I am attempting to click outside what would be the Expression editor. If I hit the escape key, I am returned back to normal operation.

I have resized EasyMorph and moved it off to the side to make sure it wasn’t appearing behind the program itself. I have tried minimizing everything else and seeing if it appeared on one of my other monitors. I WindowsKey+D to minimize everything and then clicked on EasyMorph again to see if it would then appear and it doesn’t.

EasyMorph version: (9a6684, 'Release')
Path to morph.exe is C:\Users\FAKEUSERNAME\AppData\Local\EasyMorph\
Operating system: Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 10.0.18363
.NET Framework 4.6 or later (4.0.30319.42000)
Latest installed .NET Framework: 4.8 or later (release 528040)
Total physical memory: 31.76 GB
Screen resolution: 6912 x 2808

Try deleting the application config file located here:

C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\EasyMorph\EasyMorph.config.xml

EasyMorph will recreate the config file automatically. Although, some application settings will be lost and will need to be re-configured again.

It might be a good idea to create a copy of the file before deletion, just in case.

That worked, thanks.

Yes it also happens sometimes to us. In order not to lose everything from the config file, it seems you can only remove these 4 lines (or reajust them), of course editor would have to confirm :slight_smile:

< ExpressionDialogLeft>…</ ExpressionDialogLeft>
< ExpressionDialogTop>…</ ExpressionDialogTop>
< ExpressionDialogWidth>…</ ExpressionDialogWidth>
< ExpressionDialogHeight>…</ ExpressionDialogHeight>

(I put spaces after < because it seems forum takes XML into account which could be a security issue ?)

Yes, that would work too and is an even better solution.

I tried deleting the text and it didn’t fix the issue. had to delete the file to get the Expression Editor to pop up.
I have multiple screens if that helps.

I see it’s a common issue. In version 4.7 we will add a button in the Application Preferences dialog to reset window positions.

Very very good news because here in Natixis we have the exact same issue with multiple screen of different size.
