FS#262 - MiniMenu: 1) "Notes line" cannot be deleted. 2) Note line being space-character only causes crash!
Steps to reproduce the bug(s): 1) In MiniMenu select an arbitrary app. 2) Press SPACE to bring up the contextual menu. 3) Select "Edit notes line 1". 4) Insert your string and confirm. 5) Now at a later time you may decide to remove your note line again. Therefore you select the same app again in MiniMenu, then repeat steps 2-3, but this time: a) Erase all characters so that you get an empty string and then confirm. RESULT: Your change is simply ignored! There should be a possibility within MiniMenu to remove/reset note lines, the simplest being to simply accept an empty string as an input, that's what an average user will try if s/he does not find a dedicated "Delete note line" command. b) As a workaround I tried something and detected yet another bug! As I could not create an empty string, I simply created a note line only containing 1 SPACE character (=the string " ") and confirmed. This got accepted. If MiniMenu is in detailed view mode (press the A-button or TAB in order to bring it up, if it is not already there) and you slide over an app whose note line is " ", MiniMenu crashes! Maybe the bug is connected with the writing to / the parsing from the .OVR (override) files which MiniMenu creates for the affected files, as the separating value in OVR files seems to be TAB, and SPACE is also WHITESPACE, therefore some parsers probably skip/misinterpret this, and MiniMenu then catches an unexpected situation! WORKAROUND: If you ran into the problem, that you cannot get rid of the note lines anymore, simply start a file browser of your choice, navigate to the location of the affected .PND file and find its sister .OVR (override) file and delete it or edit it accordingly!
