I get the same problem when I click on tasks to enlarge them (open full-length rows above the main one). If I click them back, they get minimized, all packed side-by-side in the bottom row, and everything stops "stroboscoping".

Sometimes, I click the thumbnails at the right to hide the one that is getting on my nerves with its flashing!

I hope it can help.

I had the same issue (in spite of the name for it, i would have said appearing/disappearing or maybe flicking), and the solution you provided worked. The DWORD entries that were 0 were the "minimized" entries. Thanks!

Thanks muchly - that did it.

MM has had the really annoying status bar for as long as I can remember. The one that made the difference was changing Bar6Minimised from 0 to 1.

I got the same trouble, and it was solved by amending the registry, I hope i can find out what casused it. thanks

I've just started getting this again and this time I know which process is causing it. I was rescanning my library when 'Generating thumbnail for ...mov" came up and stayed up for a while, so for no particular reason I clicked on it. Of course the bar maximised and now I get lots of flicker as it appears every time an image is found. This is probably a different process than was affecting some of the other people here (e.g. Dreadlau, leveling track volume), but the problem is the same - a maximised status bar that you can't stop without editing the registry. So I still think a "Minimize all status bars" context menu option would be a useful addition

I'm also getting this (or was) - thanks for the solution NoHitter. I don't know what caused it, but since we're in the wishlist section, I guess a 'minimise all' option would solve it without people having to play in the registry.

did you try the steps I already mentioned to fix this? Did it work? Do you know how to reproduce this even after making the fix?

Oh.
And if you tag files.
(In this example I changed the Date field for a selection of tracks.)

You get a 2 line status bar!
What the hell?

True. I thought it was on all systems like this. Apparently something happened to my version on day that caused it :/ I have a clean install on a new XP machine and there are no problems there.

I guess, but it would not help to report the issue without any inkling as to how to cause the problem.

Close MM, and change all REG_DWORD entries to 1. Then re-open MM and see if it makes any difference.

Thank you for noticing my problem and assisting me here. I am lucky to know how to export from the registry. Here is the output of the registry folder you mentioned.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Code: Select all

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MediaMonkey\StatusBars]
"Bar6Minimized"=dword:00000000
"Bar4Minimized"=dword:00000001
"Bar0Minimized"=dword:00000000
"Bar2Minimized"=dword:00000001
"Bar3Minimized"=dword:00000001
"Bar9Minimized"=dword:00000000
"Bar10Minimized"=dword:00000001
"Bar24Minimized"=dword:00000001
"Bar21Minimized"=dword:00000001
"Bar19Minimized"=dword:00000001
"Bar20Minimized"=dword:00000000
"Bar13Minimized"=dword:00000001
"Bar5Minimized"=dword:00000001

Yes. I can't reproduce that. Tell me, if you go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MediaMonkey\StatusBars in the registry, what appears? A screenshot would work if you'd rather not type it all out.
