letter bar isn't working in some cases

Post by Keldi »

Windows 10 Pro 20H2 build 19042.906
EssentialPIM Pro Portable 9.8


Steps:
1. Create a new database.
2. Create passwords with titles A, B, C...
3. Click on B on the letter bar - password A is selected. Click any other letter - still the first password is selected.
4. Sort by the password column and click on any letter on the letter bar - password B is always selected.
5. Sort by the title column. After the second column sorting the letter bar starts working as intended.
(an animated GIF attached)

Seems like the issue goes away after some column sorting (but it needs to be done for each password group for letter bar to work in the group).

This is by design. The letter bar works for a column that has active sorting.

In my case, the letter bar is empty. An empty bar ... no letters visible.
Reading this post I thought, may be it's because I use dark mode?
I will test ... but so far I only have an empty bar

Please click on the down arrow at the bottom of the bar and check if any of the alphabets are enabled. Thanks!
