PDFView not displaying properly/immediately

  • Dear List,

    In recent builds of my LaTeX editor app, the PDFView just displays white blank pages on first load. After scrolling a little or zooming in or out the PDF is properly displayed. I even get cases where only half of the page is rendered until I scroll about some more. Did something change in PDFKit, or has anyone else seen this behaviour? I'm fairly certain that nothing has changed recently in that part of the code base.

    Best wishes,

    Martin

    It's a bug in PDFKit. You should be all-right if you tell the PDFView to redraw itself on the next iteration of the runloop after the load.

    It started with 10.7.4.
