Odd Palette Behavior

Nathan Hale
In latest from PPA, I'm experiencing odd palette behavior. It doesn't
seem to be "docking" correctly. The palette works okay when undocked
(other than not resizing properly when sub-palettes are closed),
however when I try to dock the palette, it covers the score and/or
menus (see attached screenshots) Any ideas for a workaround?

It looks like the palettes are not "docked". Can you still move them around?
Sometimes its a bit tricky to hit the right docking point by slowly moving the
palette across the left window edge.

Re: Odd Palette Behavior

Thanks for the reply, Werner. Actually I can't move the palette...It
acts as if docked, but sometimes it appears in the middle of my score!
I can "undock" it by pressing the button, and then it is movable,
which is my current workaround. Nevertheless, when I try to dock it
again, it ends up covering the menus or the current score.

Re: Odd Palette Behavior

Toby Smithe-2
I can't reproduce the problem here on an up-to-date Ubuntu 8.10
installation, so below are some generic questions to help us pinpoint
the bug.

What revision package are you using? And, seeing as I've forgotten,
what distribution release? Does this happen in other Qt programs?

The settings of the main windows (including the palette) are saved in the
file $HOME/.config/MusE/MuseScore.ini or MuseScore.conf (older mscore
versions). I would suggest to remove this file and start over with default
setting.

Thanks for the suggestion. I removed the files, but the problem
persists. Furthermore, I did an "apt-get purge mscore mscore-common"
and reinstalled, also with no luck.

I am using mscore version 0.9.5b1598+dfsg-0ubuntu~intrepid1 from the
PPA, on an up to date Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid.
I've not seen anything like this in other QT programs (I don't use
very many, though).
