IDC shows copy of Activating object on Blocking side

Pierre Fagrell 2 years ago in IQANdesign updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 1 year ago 3 1 duplicate

I think I have a GUI bug in iQANdesign 6.06

The activating object "B" in this channel shows up also as a blocking object.

If I click anywhere in the blocking window it disappears but will reappear as soon as the channel is closed and reopened.

It will also disappear if the property inspector is resized or the center divider is moved.

If the channel is opened with the activating window too small the ghost duplicate will be cutoff at the same point

The duplicate channel does not exist in a text export:

Your suspicion is correct, it is a GUI bug. The object does not exist so does not affect the application. 

This shows up when the function inspector is set to minimize automatically and you navigate from a channel without a function, e.g. a DIN. If you navigate from a channel with function it shows the correct list. 

Easiest workaround is to pin the function inspector up all the time.
