Confirmed here too. Alt-clicking to select loops only working on edges in rB02a7e57d9c07 x64 / Win10.

db (phocomelus) added a comment to T63473: Eevee does not display shadow correctly .

Hope I'm not encroaching, but I had a look at it too. Changing Render Settings > Shadows > Method from ESM to VSM seems to solve it for me. Presumably a limitation of the ESM algorithm? Seems like an unrelated issue to the one originally reported?

Your Light has its Clip Start set to 1 meter, so the start of the shadow is casting from around half way down the box. If you reduce the Clip Start to something lower, it'll fix it. Or move the top of the box down, away from the light. Or move the light up.

db (phocomelus) added a comment to T63379: Incorrect curves transform on parented curve objects & instancing visibility problem.

This sounds similar to what I was seeing in T61389 - but in my case it was an Array modifier used inside a collection instead of parenting. Perhaps it's the same root cause though?

Forgive cross-posting on this one, but the other task is unassigned so I don't know if it'll get seen.

db (phocomelus) added a comment to T59802: Preferences window opening behind main window when in fullscreen mode.

I downloaded the 2.8 source and edited the GHOST_WindowWin32.cpp file and made a patch that removes the WS_POPUP flag references and changed the getState() function logic that determines what state the Blender window is currently in (I think?). Instead of checking for WS_POPUP, it now checks if the window has both WS_DLGFRAME and WS_MAXIMIZE, as WS_DLGFRAME doesn't seem to be present when in fullscreen, according to WinExplorer. I don't know if that's a safe way of doing things as I have no experience in this area and this is the first time I've ever done this.

So I've done some poking around and testing with an old freeware app called WinExplorer, which lets you inspect and alter various window state/style properties. Here's what I've found:

@LazyDodo (LazyDodo) apologies, wasn't my intention. Just seemed that whatever is causing the flicker and the other windows/message boxes being hidden were both related to the same issue, as the fullscreen behaviour seems different compared to 2.79. I see a very similar flicker other applications/games that use a fullscreen context instead of a borderless window.

@LazyDodo (LazyDodo) are you able to confirm the issue when opening the preferences window too? E.g. the window appears behind/invisible, but is actually there and clickable? It seems to be about 80% of the time, if done repeatedly.

db (phocomelus) added a comment to T62557: object display as wire , invisible when overlay is turned off .

I thought this was intentional? It works well if you're using a boolean workflow and want to see your mesh, or drawn a reference outline or an outlined custom bone handle or something...

I've been seeing this for a while too. It shows the verts on the mesh, but the selection acts like you're selecting edges, like the selection mode and the selection type are out of sync.

Same issue here, since the earliest builds, screen flickers black when opening Preferences (appears in front momentarily and then disappears until alt-tab), switching Shading modes or doing things like adding Materials. No issue with 2.79b or earlier. GTX 1080/Win 10.

Forgive the necro post, but I wanted to check something before creating a new bug report about it, as all searches seem to lead to this report...
