I am still having a host of issues with the message log. Currently running build 111.7
Message log, when in external window does seem to clear better with CTRL-M, but still not always. Further, when it DOES clear, its only in Raw Text mode. In the Interactive View, when in external window, CTRL-M does not work. The method of using the Game menu and selecting Clear Message log only works about 50% of the time.
Also, a problem that has gotten worse, is that many times with the Message Log in a separate window, I cannot keep other, drop down menus open. I click on them, and then then drop down menu disappears. On my second screen, I can see that the Message Log keeps becoming the active window every time this happens. Makes it extremely difficult to open other menus, and I invariably have to close the Message Log, which defeats the purpose of having it open all the time in an external window.
It really seems like there are many bugs associated with the Message Log in separate window mode. For me it has been causing me to fall back to CMANO, which I do not want to do. I want to play and embrace CMO, but this message log window issue is really causing problems for me.
It should be noted that I have tested this problem in scenario saves, fresh scenario starts, different scenarios. It is persistent across all examples.
EDIT: Further testing has revealed that the Message Log in a separate window, keeps becoming the active window. Every time I click on the main game window, either on the map or the window bar, the Message Log immediately becomes the active window again. In short, I cannot keep it from being the active window, and that it makes it near impossible to play the game.
EDIT 2: And even further testing has revealed that IF there is some text in the Message Log (when in a separate window) then the problem DOES NOT exist. It seems to only be there when the Message Log has been cleared of information. Then the problem IS there.
