Re: After pasting, insertion point disappears

Huh, so it does, I never noticed that.
Looking through the code I can trace it to a message being sent to the rich edit control, EM_REQUESTRESIZE. I don't know why the control hides the cursor at this point, but I suspect it's changed behaviour in the newer version of the control which Stickies 8 uses.
The Stickies code which sends that message was added (I made a note!) in December 2007, to help when pasting Chinese characters into the control. I hope that since then, the move to a newer rich edit control and to Unicode means the call isn't required any longer, as I've now removed it.
So, look for this to be fixed from the next release of Stickies.
