Vanishing Text

Mag. Dr. Karl Kashofer
Dear All !

I use Evolution 3.28.2-1  on Debian Buster under Wayland and have a
problem with text highlighting.

When i write an email and double-click text in the editor window the
text vanishes after the third click. I.e. double-click highlights the
text and if i then click again the text vanishes. It seems to be a bug
and not a feature as even ctrl-z does not bring the text back.

Can anyone try to reproduce that ? Any idea what to do ?

thanks,
KK

        Hi,
it sounds like this bug:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=794723
It references also a webkit bug.
        Bye,
        Milan

Hi !

I am not entirely sure which package that is, however here is
everything i can apt search with "webkit"

gir1.2-webkit2-4.0/testing,now 2.20.3-1
amd64  [Installiert,automatisch]
libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37/testing,now 2.20.3-1
amd64  [Installiert,automatisch]
libwebkitgtk-1.0-0/testing,now 2.4.11-4
amd64  [Installiert,automatisch]

This is an up-to-date current debian testing buster installation.
Is that helping ?
Cheers,
KK

I've got the same problem. It looks as if it were a problem of my theme. I'm using Telinkrin-2.5 - which started to produce this behaviour after the ubuntu system upgrade to bionic..
Switching to default Adwaita brings me back to selected text highlighted in blue.

So you might want to try another theme?

I had similar problems with Claws mail, which was one of the reasons
 for moving over to Evolution.
I did find that when it happened that clicking on EDIT , then UNDO
returned the missing text.

Undo does not work for me.

PS: is there a code of conduct about top/bottom posting for this list ?
