Title: Cursor Readout Preview Disappears
Post by: STEVE333 on 2019 March 13 09:35:47
Occasionally when working with PI the Cursor Readout Preview will somehow get turned off. It's a bit of a pain to have to navigate several button pushes to turn it back on. I use the preview often to read the RGB values.

Any ideas how to prevent this from happening?

I'm working on a HP laptop running Windows 10 with an i7 processor.

It happens when Dynamic Operation Mode was turned on.

Thanks GJL for the response.

I'm not sure what the Dynamic Operation Mode is, or, how it gets turned on/off. However, while researching about it I found out about the Edit Toolbar which displays a Readout Options icon where I can easily turn the preview back on. So, problem solved.

Thanks for the help.

You're welcome Geert. It's always nice to find an easy fix to these little "annoyances".

Steve, I thought you just wanted to know the causes. Of course you can turn the window on again via Edit/Readout Options.
Dynamic Operation Mode is an icon in the toolbar at the top, with a black arrow pointing up to the left, which is replaced by the icon of a dynamic tool (e.g. DynamicBackgroundExtraction, DBE) as long as this tool is active.
I made the experience that the window of the ReadoutPreview disappeared after such a tool and must be recreated again. Could be a bug.
