Summary0006127: Pick Shader via MMB not working.
DescriptionI am fairly sure I logged a tracker for this in the past and that we closed it because I couldnt reliable reproduce the issue. Well with 3.4.0 its now dosent work at all.

Steps To Reproduce1. it used to be that you could just middle mouse click on any patch/brush and you would get taken to appropriate shader in the texture inspector.
2. that then start not working (from memory with 2.9 and above) and you had to select the patch/brush and then press MMB.
3. now even selecting a patch, brush or surface of a brush dosent work when you press MMB.

I am getting tired of having to do this (nuking my prefs) to fix issues with DR, but after nuking my DR configs folder (C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\DarkRadiant). I think @Greebo, you said some time ago I dont have to nuke the whole folder?

MMB is now working again, I can MMB click on any patch or brush surface to 'pick' a shader/texture and it takes me to said texture.

Annoyingly the mouse setting haven't changed (I never change them), I only change keyboard shortcuts.

I don't think you need to clear your preferences folder all the time, it sounds like you're doing that far too often. If a problem is really caused by the settings I'd like to see them.

Generally, to check if the settings are the problem, just move them out of the way (don't delete them). If the problem doesn't go away, just move them back. If the problem indeed goes away, moving them back should also make the problem come back - in which case I'd like to have those settings to repro the issue.

Ok so by them I assume you mean each individual .xml files..?

And on the subject of said files, the user.xml dosent appear to have the same neat row based formating that the other .xml files have (see attached)

XML formatting is irrelevant to DR, the exporter doesn't do it unless it's specifically told to do so.

Yes, I mean the whole set of files in the 3.4 folder. If they are really the cause of any problem, then I'd be interested in the whole set.

Ok so after a few days MMB to pick a shader of a brush is working flawlessly. The only issue I am seeing is when trying to MMB of a patch, sometimes it wont work once DR has been open for a while.

Dont know if this is going to help you diagnose the issue but -

Had DR open for a few hours and started to see the old MMB not selecting shaders behavour again. But when I select the face of a brush, then selected "main menu>edit>copy shader" and then went back to just using MMB to 'pick a shader' it started working as exspected again.

Wellingtoncrab noted that my issue maybe the same as 0006151, investigating.

Regarding 0006151,I followed Forst_slsmanders steps but dont understand what is supposed to happen.

With the media tab or another tab selected I can still copy & paste as exspected and MMB click on any face and get taken to the matching shader in media inspector.

Like a lot of the bugs I am finding, I think this only happens to me after DR has been open for a long time.

Despite the fix implmented in 0006151, this is happening in 3.8.0
