Delphi 11 first look issues

Recommended Posts

(Windows 10 - I am admin on PC)

1. install did not work on one PC (this had 10.4-and was-is my'new version test PC'.

(I could install it on another PC no issue)

2. IDE modification -settings do not get save between IDE sessions.

-- Fonts

--customizing toolbars

 

Once Delphi is started again -back to initial installation settings.

Try changing more settings. At some point they will be persisted. Another option is to import 10.4.2 settings or change problematic options directly in registry, before you start IDE

More feedback.

 

1. When I have a win application project open- and switch from win32 to win64 -- and I need to add a new library path to the

Win64 environment- The Library .. Selected Platform DOES NOT FOLLOW - the initial Selected Platform is STILL win32....

 

2. Exes generated by Delphi11 are 'slightly smaller' than those for the equivalent app generated in 10.4.2

 

The look and feel for Delphi 11 is nice but it seems to me the concentration was on eye candy and new code candy, not on basic IDE usability in regards to 10.x IDE (font, toolbar persistence, library path selection matching project)?

With shortcut "Delphi 11 (DPI Unaware)", using:

 

...bds.exe" "/highdpi:unaware" "-pDelphi"

 

it is possible to customize toolbars, unbelive, eh?!.

Is Help working for anyone else? It's not for me. Sometimes I get the 10.4.2 help, other times nothing (when pressing F1).

I had not tried the F1 - but yet it does not open a specific version 11 help - it refers to 10.x

 

Doc Wiki link goes to Delphi 11 Alexandria page.

F1 seems to work for me without issue so far.

My experience too. But putting the cursor on a new property (e.g. AutoDropDownWidth in TComboBox) still fails since it loads 10.4.2. I can go to the DocWiki, but that takes a bit to find what you're looking for. But there's not that much new in 11 so I guess it's not too big of a deal.

The correct help file can be downloaded from here: https://docs.embarcadero.com/products/rad_studio/index.php

 

Place the chm as topics.chm in the appropriate folder under $(BDS)\help\doc

I dowloaded: Offline CHM Help (Updated: 24th of September 2021)
Offline Libraries CHM Help (Updated: 11th of October 2021)

unzipped and put in the location (C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\22.0\Help\Doc)

Pressing F1 still brings up Sydney and it didn't replace "Topics.chm" etc.

If I double click it it still has:
