Pre-release v2.10 is now available (Updated 3 April)

Let me guess - you're using file system sync?

I sync with OneDrive.

Ah, ok. It's just that there were reports that the filesystem sync blocks the UI. This must be something else then.

Judging by the screens in the issue, the 'New design for "New note" and "New todo" buttons' seem to have been added into a new line under the search bar.
Vertical space is precious to me, so this is worse than before; is there an option to keep them in the same line?

Unfortunately there is still an issue with the search field losing focus.

I use the shortcut or the mouse to get focus on the search field. I want to enter test, but type the letters rather slowly. After the second letter, Joplin returns result(s) and the focus is no longer in the search field.
Typing the search term slowly is used to reproduce this phenomenon consistently, but when exactly it happens (at which letter) is rather random.

I can't seem to reproduce this bug (2.10.9 dev Linux).


To be sure, did this bug appear after the redesign of the new buttons?

I just tried on my Linux dev VM. You are correct, this seems only be happening on macOS.

Although I noticed a difference in behavior between 2.9 and 2.10. In 2.9 the field is expanded as soon as the focus is in the search field. In 2.10 the field only expands when you start typing. But this is probably another issue, or even wanted. I liked the behavior in 2.9 better.

Back to the other issue: I am not entirely sure how to debug this. I am really bad when it comes to GUI and css and all that frontend stuff. But at least we were able to narrow it down to macOS. I don't have Windows, so I can't test it there.

Either way, this is extremly annoying and I will try to update nodejs and try a few other things. Let's see if that helps.

However, I have seen this in 2.9 as well, although it doesn't happen that often, which is why I never noticed it and just jugged it up to me brushing over the touchpad by accident. But I guess that was not it. :wink:

P.S.: Heading to bed, so I won't be replying right away...

I can replicate on my machine so I'll see if I can fix it. How about the filter button that disappears after typing? Is it a new behaviour? Because indeed it would be better if it disappears as soon as the field gets focus

It's fixed here now, but it wasn't a regression:

Thanks, Laurent. I can confirm this fixed the issue.

It's just weird that I haven't noticed this behavior as prominently in earier releases of Joplin. I'm also fairly certain that I didn't see it in 2.8 at all, but I might be wrong.

Once again, thanks for the fix. Now I only have to get rid of those buttons in my CSS. :wink:

Yes I'm not sure why the bug shows up now, since it was in rather old code. Or maybe it was always there and we didn't really pay attention since it was subtle and not so easy to replicate


  • Fixed: Fix issue where search bar can randomly lose focus while searching (bd42914)
  • Fixed: Fixed height when controls are on a single row (#7912) (#7907 by @julien)

I just noticed something else. I can't recall the specs, but the About window shows all installed plugins.

But IMO it should only show all enabled plugins. Furthermore are they in a random order?

Yes that's true, @julien-me it should indeed only show the enabled plugins and they should be sorted in alphabetical order

I created issue #7920 and pull request #7923 to fix it.
