When typing causes horizontal scrolling. I type this (imagine there was no scrolling yet):

I add a fifth parameter (scrolling as I type):


(Of course, the digits being red is another bug...)

Which IDE and version of VA are you using?
Are you using Window Blinds, or some other method to skin your windows? Window Blinds can cause problems for VA, and we recommend excluding the IDE from being skinned.

I am not seeing any problems here. Also I am not seeing any form of syntax highlighting in the Change Signature edit dialog.

"Apply coloring to" -> "Listboxes" enables it in there for me.
No WindowBlinds (custom uxtheme-based theme, but it looks the same in Luna).

That's interesting, this is an OS specific bug. I can reproduce this very easily on winXP, but only on winXP:

case=9659

For now turning off:

VA Options -> Advanced -> Fonts and Colors -> Apply Colouring to -> Listboxes

fixes both the colouring and the corruption. Not ideal, but it is something.

Well, using the arrows to navigate seems to fix it nicely too. I just wish I could type a bit more accurately...

I noticed that arrows fix it as well, but as soon as I start typing again it breaks.

The other obvious work around is to resize the dialog, to make it really wide, to try and avoid scrolling text. That should work for a lot of cases.
