What's going on with the empty white record selector box in the lower left corner under Table Data View?

1) Initially upon opening a table (both w/ embedded data base & with JDBC connected db)

2) After resizing the window just slightly

Is this the way it's working for everyone? If so I'll submit a bug report.. ????

I reproduce on my platform (windows 7/64 & Version: Privileging the display of the first records before having finished calculating their number is a good practice (used in other software). But you still have to end up with the result :)

According to me you can indeed declare this bug. Thank you for your report.

@EasyTrieve It works fine for me on Windows 8.1 with LO installed and LO Portable I have downloaded your database Lookup2.odb so it is the same Companies Table. When I open the Table the Record Navigator is always visible.

This problem started in the v5.1.x series.

Just completed a build as of 1/12/17 code and it appears resolved there:

Just tried daily (v5.4) from 12/29 had around and the problem is still there. Don't understand why is is not apparent in my v5.3 build - just re-checked & it's OK.

I have just updated to LO5.2.7.2 on my Windows 10 PC, and am sad to report that the bug is still there as originally reported by EasyTrieve

@GowerMick I have just checked LO v5.3.2.2 and the problem no longer exists. Not sure when or how it was rectified because the bug report is still open.
