I am now using 184.108.40.206 (Build MAIN-13.30) and this is still an issue. It seems to occur more frequently in the connections pane than in worksheets, but I'm not totally sure it is fixed in worksheets as it is intermittent and not readily reproducible, as I don't know what triggers it.
I have the exact same issue in Windows 7 with 220.127.116.11 (Build MAIN-13.80), and I have seen it happen with a colleague as well. It is a real pain!
Can you describe this in a bit more detail?
The scrolling getting stuck doesn't actually happen while you are scrolling, but just randomly kicks in?
And as a sanity check, can you get version 18.104.22.168 and confirm it's not already fixed there?
Still happens for me under 22.214.171.124 on OS X
Sorry for the slow reply, notifications aren't getting sent to me via email, not sure why since I have signed up for them for this thread.
Anyhow - to answer your question, this weird scrolling behavior only occurs when I'm attempting to scroll. I will be trying to scroll a worksheet to view another part of it, and the scrolling will sort of get stuck bouncing up and down by a few lines. I am on 126.96.36.199, build MAIN-14.48. I recently upgraded to OSX 10.9.2, and the issue is still present. I don't think I've seen this issue recently in the connections pane, but that might be simply because I haven't been using SQL Developer as much lately. It is happening right now in a SQL worksheet though.
I don't know how to reproduce, but it is definitely not limited to the example in my original post where I was dragging a table from the connections pane into the worksheet. I was just editing a worksheet manually and found that randomly this happened.
What does java -version show in your terminal?
Also, we now have 4.0.2 to try.
I will upgrade when I have a chance and see if that helps.
Here is Java version info:
$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_09"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_09-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.5-b02, mixed mode)
it very well could be your jdk then
update 9 is VERY old - we saw lots of 'weird ui things' with earlier java 7s
and for v4.0.2 we're saying you need at least update 51 - or 50-something...
Thanks Jeff. I upgraded to SQL Developer 4.0.2, and the latest JDK. I'll let you know if I see the issue again.
Just to let you know I am seeing this issue also, Mac OS X 10.9.2, java -version = 1.7.0_55, SQL Developer = 188.8.131.52.
So far I have only ever experienced this in 'Connections' pane. Unfortunately I haven't yet spotted a way to trigger this reliably for debugging purposes. In terms of setup I have two Desktops setup (one for email/general web, the other for 'work', e.g. SQL Developer). I tend to flick between the windows and other applications fairly frequently but cannot say if this contributes or not.
Just a quick bump and also to attach a video I took with my phone, which can be viewed here. You can see from the video that when I scroll to the bottom or top of the connections pane and stop scrolling it recentres in the same position. Hopefully that is some assistance in diagnosing the problem.
This other thing I noticed is that if Adobe Acrobat Reader is open (Version/Build: 11.0.07.79) the Adobe reader window drops by a few pixels. In the screen grab below the top half is before SQL Developer is open and the lower half is as SQL Developer is loading (it's not in the shot but the SQL Developer splash screen is showing at the time. Not sure if this is related or helps at all but thought I'd mention it as it is consistent.
