Side panel i.e. notebook panel blank on Android

Hi Takuya
I just updated to the latest version on Android. Yesterday it was working fine. Today when I opened the app, the notebook tree (entire panel) was blank (black). Only the top panel (with settings cog) and bottom panel (sync time) was visible. I could click on it, and it would go to specific notebook, but I could not see what I was doing…

Hi Rael,

Thanks for the report. That sounds weird.
So, the entire notebook tree is invisible while you can select a notebook? :thinking:
Could you share a screenshot?
What if changing notebook names from another client?

I did try to rename notebook on another client (desktop), and that did result in tree re-displaying, and so the problem has gone away. I’ll let you know if it returns… :slight_smile:

That’s interesting. It looks hard to reproduce though, maybe it is a bug in React Native.
It might be related to this issue:

But I don’t know if I can solve it at the moment.

Just to report, the problem does recur since I restarted my phone and restarted the app. If I log out, then log back in to the app, that also forces a refresh to the tree.

I do have some nested notebooks. I assume you’ve tested that scenario.

Yeah, I’ve tested that scenario but I’ve never reproduced the issue so far.
Looks like it happens randomly because the app does not cache the notebook tree locally at rest.
I couldn’t even find any related diagnostics reports on Bugsnag.
So, it might be happening in the native layer such as react-native-reanimated.

What device model are you using and what is the Android version?
Can you please reinstall the app after logging out?
Does the long-hold action on the note list work as expected?
