Article refresh removes article text in Unread Articles pane

Post by lclark0751 »

I just upgraded to version 3.1.6 :526419c:

I was reading an article in the Unread Articles pane when Vienna decided it was time to check for new articles (every 15 minutes). When it did that the text of the article I was reading disappeared, leaving a blank pane. Selecting the next article in the Unread Articles list displays that article's text in the reader pane, but re-selecting the original article still leaves a blank pane. A one-minute video screen-capture showing what is happening is in my dropbox:

Looks like I need to change Vienna's preferences to manually check for new articles. While I was waiting for the screen-capture file to sync to my dropbox, Vienna did another refresh of my RSS feeds and the text of the article I was reading disappeared. This is obviously a repeatable bug.

I could not reproduce this. Reminds me of the issue labelled 601 on Github.

Does restarting the app bring back the article ?

I can reproduce this, sort of.

Selected folder: “all unread” smart folder.
View/Layout: Vertical
An article is selected.
Vienna refreshes.
* The selected article is send to the bottom of the list, the content pane is empty.
* in the article list the meta data (not the title) lists null null (instead of date/author)

However, if one then goes to the folder that actually contains the feed for the article, the article is there in full.

It is intermittent on my side. If Vienna is in the foreground and I’m actually reading the article, the content does not disappear.[**] If Vienna is in the background (hidden or not), then I’ve seen it happen a few times since the latest 3.1.6 beta build.
10.11.6 El Capitan.

[**] Note: in that case the scroll position inside the article jumps back to the top. E.g, I’m reading a long article, scrolling down (say, I’m halfway down), Vienna refreshes, the scroll position jumps back to top. Only seems to happen when in a smart folder, AFAICT.

This is totally repeatable for me, even in 3.1.7. Just press cmd-R to "Refresh all subscriptions" while viewing an article in the "Unread Articles" list. Poof! The selected article text disappears.

OS X Yosemite 10.10.5.

This appears to be fixed with Vienna 3.1.8. Thank you!
