Sending a message during synchronization makes it appear out of order #1113
I can send a message to my contact using Signal-Desktop while message history is still being downloaded. If I do that, the message I send is immediately displayed in the conversation just below messages that were downloaded (synchronized) before I sent it. Messages that are downloaded later appear below the message I send and therefore my message is lost between them and is displayed out of order.
Steps to reproduce
Operating System: Windows 7
Signal version: 0.33.0
Link to debug log
I didn't get that one, but can reproduce and get if needed.
I had the same problem, I thought I may have sent a debug log, but I guess I didn't, or it was a different thread. Anyway, the loading screen doesn't work very well? I opened Signal because I thought with Chrome updating, the app would update as well, but there was no loading screen (meanwhile toasts kept popping up - even though I've already had the conversation on the phone a few days ago, so it's all read). I went to extensions and clicked to update them all, and Signal updated itself to 0.42.4.
I had disabled the toasts 'cause they were annoying so I don't know if the update fixed it. I bet not, but this is not the thread about that. So anyway, the loading screen appeared for maybe two seconds, and then it went back to the regular - list of contacts and empty field on the right. I can see though that the sync was definitely far from successful. It showed 43 (or so) new messages from one contact, the latest being from Friday. I have had more conversations, including other contacts, using the Android app since the last one I see downloaded (and ofc the "new" ones were already read).
I'm turning toasts back on to see if at least that started working better now, but obviously won't see the result until I turn it off completely.
And just in case you wanna see:
Hey there, @6lancmange. I took a look at your log, and it appears that nothing much has happened since you upgraded to
Welcome to the new version! Sadly, when the previous version pulled all those messages from its queue, it ran into a lot of errors, mostly "Too many message keys for chain" which shouldn't happen any more in
Just experienced this but on the android app.
Had sent a few messages with signal-desktop before.
Signal Android: 4.18.3
