Disappearing Addresses, Colon, and OP codes on the debugger code display #462
With the click of a mouse button, the addresses disappear.
For the life of me I could not figure out why sometimes my disassembly view in the debugger would change. And it took me awhile to figure out how to get some of them back to normal ("disasm OPCODE 1", "disasm COLON 1"). But when the addresses disappeared, I thought the only way to get them back was to restart AppleWin.
Today I discovered the undocumented(?) feature. See the attached images. The "hot spot" is on the left of the screen.
To someone unfamiliar with this feature, it is EXTREMELY difficult to understand why all of a sudden your display has changed. I usually have multiple windows open at the same time, and I sometimes misclick the mouse button where I should not. Perhaps I'm trying to resize another applications window by dragging it's edge, and I misclick by a few pixels and hit the "hot spot" instead. BAM!! there go my opcodes.
I also imagine more than once I tried to "copy" some text from the "hot spot" of the window, and once again, BAM! there goes my display.
Now that I know about it, I think it is a GREAT feature!!!
But to the unsuspecting user it is BAD! BAD! BAD!
