Sequencer Preview : area_join() doesn't join well
Confirmed, LowPublicKNOWN ISSUE

Blender Version
Broken: version: 2.80 (sub 74), branch: master, commit date: 2019-06-05 09:46, hash: rBcd1ac4d908a8
Worked: (optional)

Short description of error
I join two Sequencer preview areas with a script and both stay, but one is like broken. If I resize the view, it goes back as expected : the residual broken view disappears.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Open the provided blend file
  • There are two Sequencer preview views
  • Run the script in the text editor
  • The display of one view changes a bit and you cannot resize it.
  • Resize the main view, the residual view disappears.
  • NB: You can run the script again to split views and re-run it to join them again. The bug remains the same.

Looks like some weird refresh issue. Thanks for the report.

Richard Antalik (ISS) changed the subtype of this task from "Report" to "Known Issue".

Tested with modified script:

import bpy

sqPreviewAreas = [x for x in bpy.context.screen.areas if x.type == 'SEQUENCE_EDITOR' and x.spaces[0].view_type == 'PREVIEW']
if len(sqPreviewAreas) == 1:
    bpy.ops.screen.area_split({'area': sqPreviewAreas[0]}, direction="VERTICAL")
    bpy.ops.screen.area_join(cursor=(sqPreviewAreas[1].x, sqPreviewAreas[1].y))

Will this apply to UI in general or only sequencer?
