Description James Antill 2010-04-26 20:31:16 UTC
Description of problem:
 If I click on an email and press spacebar, it doesn't scroll the preview pane anymore.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Installed Packages
evolution.x86_64                 2.30.0-3.fc13                  @updates-testing

Thanks for a bug report. I cannot reproduce it, somehow, with just released evolution-2.30.1, the spacebar is scrolling the message regardless where I am (the message list, or the message itself in the preview pane below the message list, or even in the message window) and whether I have or haven't checked Edit->Preferences->Mail Preferences->Enable Magic Spacebar.

Could you try with 2.30.1, please? (Note there will be a release of 2.30.1-2 due to missing icons, but that should be unrelated to this bug.)

Comment 2 James Antill 2010-04-27 14:09:36 UTC
 Nope still doesn't work here:

Installed Packages
evolution.x86_64                     2.30.1-1.fc13          @updates-testing
evolution-data-server.x86_64         2.30.1-1.fc13          @updates-testing
evolution-help.noarch                2.30.1-1.fc13          @updates-testing
evolution-perl.x86_64                2.30.1-1.fc13          @updates-testing

...also tried vertical view, but that did the same thing (nothing).
 I checked and Enable Magic Spacebar is still enabled.

 I ran xev and hit spacebar:

KeyPress event, serial 30, synthetic NO, window 0x5e00001,
    root 0x107, subw 0x0, time 207970931, (1316,491), root:(1326,570),
    state 0x0, keycode 65 (keysym 0x20, space), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (20) " "
    XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (20) " "
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyRelease event, serial 33, synthetic NO, window 0x5e00001,
    root 0x107, subw 0x0, time 207971003, (1316,491), root:(1326,570),
    state 0x0, keycode 65 (keysym 0x20, space), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (20) " "
    XFilterEvent returns: False

Comment 3 Milan Crha 2010-04-28 12:24:31 UTC
which part of evolution is selected when you hit the space bar?

Say when you select a message preview panel, (thus pressing arrows up and down will scroll the message content) will the space bar do anything?

Do you have View->Caret Mode on or off? I have it off. I vaguely recall some bug reports that the magic space bar doesn't work with the caret mode, so maybe it's the issue?

 I have it on, and yeh that was it. Magic space bar is more important than caret mode, so I toggled that and it worked again ... thanks.

 I'll leave this open, as they both worked in F-12 ... but feel free to close to an upstream BZ or whatever as I'm happy ;).

Comment 5 Milan Crha 2010-04-28 17:06:38 UTC
Thanks for the update. There is really an upstream bug [1], thus I'm moving this one there.
