From Twitter:

Input field bundles used to work in 1.0.2 in the popup field editor, too, but don't anymore in 1.1.

Ok, 50% of that issue was me removing the "mainWindow" state from the field editor and the other 50% goes to whoever assumed the mainWindow would always be the keyWindow.

Hopefully that won't cause any side effects again…

@dmoagx dmoagx added this to the 1.1.1 milestone Oct 30, 2015

@dmoagx this is a pretty serious bug. The ability to deserialize large PHP arrays/objects is now impossible inside the stable released versions of the app (which is what I use the app for 90% of the time).

I just tried the nightly build and I can confirm the above commits have sort of fixed this issue. It will work if you use the main or context menu to manually select the bundle, however the key bindings still do not work after the pop-up sheet shows up.

This is the main menu for the bundle. Notice there is no key binding, which may be part of the issue?

This is the context menu inside the pop-up sheet (right click), which shows the key binding, but doesn't work:

Also, is it possible that this issue (once fully fixed) be released before the 1.1.1 milestone or in place of it?


I'm also receiving the following crash on some larger PHP arrays. I've redacted the full contents of the array, but it appears that it's attempting to assign a system variable (to be used on the shell script)? Possible it's not fully escaping the value properly?

How many characters did it have?



dmoagx commented Nov 27, 2015

OK, the length shouldn't be a problem, but your string most likely contains special characters.
Can you check for NUL and possibly others?


Yes, I see a lot of NUL characters. The DB is managed by the Drupal CMS, so not much control over that. Is there a way to filter those out before sending it through?

dmoagx commented Nov 28, 2015

Let's continue the discussion on the exception in #2342.

The issue with the keyboard shortcut most likely has something to with the fact that "Shift+cmd+D" is already assigned to "Go to Database…".


Ok... so I just tried re-assigning my bundle to something like Cmd+D, but apparently it thinks that's what "Go to Database..." is actually assigned to instead:

dmoagx commented Nov 29, 2015

Huh, that's interesting.

I just looked at the code and it looks like OS X interprets:

  • cmd+D => cmd+shift+D
  • cmd+shift+d => cmd+shift+D
  • cmd+d => cmd+D

(the different combinations are only accessible via code) while our version of ShortcutRecorder assumes d and D are the same thing.
Well, another reason for #2300


Hm, odd indeed. I suppose this issue could get closed then (as the above commits actually fixed the problem). I'm still a bit confused as to which shortcut "Go to Database..." should be using though.

If it's any consolation, the bundle I use has always been assigned to cmd+shift+D. I really don't remember what "Go to Database..." was before (as I rarely used that), but I would imagine it should only be cmd+d, yes?

dmoagx commented Nov 29, 2015

The database selection always has been cmd+shift+D, but there was no main menu item for this before, which is probably why you are only seeing it now.

You can try this workaround:
Go to System Prefs > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts and remap Go to Database… to some other key (note that the … is a single ellipsis character and not three dots).
Then in Sequel Pro assign cmd+D to your Bundle.
Afterwards remove the App shortcut from System Prefs again.

That should work fine. The bug only affects assigning keyboard shortcuts.
