RARE Bug in UI when using Server/Client

Post by SerarchFanatic69 » Sat Aug 22, 2020 9:11 am

Hello,

I have found a bug in the file selection menu while using everything on the CLIENT side.

When i select rows, then scroll down, the selected upper rows get deselected.

When i do the same thing on the SERVER side, this doesn't happen. I can scroll up and down and the selected lines don't get deselected as i scroll past them.

The ETP Server sends results per page /screen at a time to the ETP Client over the network.
That way Everything is able to display results fast and doesn't have to "download" the entire server database, which could be multiple gigabytes.

Side effect is that selection is not possible, as you already noticed.

Workararound is to further specify your search query to limit the number of results.
Menu:Search > Advanced Search... can help you with that.
Or use Menu:Help > Search Syntax for even more detailed information.
