whelp. i really blew it. i should have just said that i knew about this bug and was working hard on it already and left it at that.
i apologize for upsetting folks. i didn’t mean for this to be negative at all.
to me this type of bug is fun kind. this stuff is what i do to relax on sunday afternoons. i’m not being metaphorical. it’s funny that i’m a nerd that likes solve UI bugs for fun, but it’s not a joke.
@apfelpuree - i know things don’t work the way they should. and i know that you’d really just like things to go back the way they were. i feel the same way. i’ll do my best to fix it.
my challenge posts above were meant to share some of the “fun” of solving this (temporarily) impossible puzzle: turning on the preview, without breaking a bunch of other important things – most of which are not easily lopped off like the feature i described, or half of a Gordian Knot.
so i’ll just go back to my job and let you get on with yours.
that said, this is a tough one. i’ve been working on it for over a week already, and i suspect i’m not half way done yet. if this feature is crucial to your workflow it may be wise to work in stacks 3 this month – or maybe in unpacked partials, while i puzzle this one out.
p.s.: if someone reads this and they too are weird and enjoy puzzles and have an idea worth sharing – just shoot me a private message – we can geek out about it together.
