### Topic: VScode go to next error

#### Johan Commelin (Mar 26 2019 at 07:44):

If you hit F8 in VScode, it takes you to the next error or warning. However, it also generates some popup with the error message, and I have no idea how to close it. This popup is covering my code, so I can't actually fix the code :sad:
Does anyone know how to close the bugger?

#### Bryan Gin-ge Chen (Mar 26 2019 at 12:48):

This is what I see when I hit F8 (on macOS): Screenshot-2019-03-26-08.46.57.png

I can close the popup either by clicking the X or hitting escape. What do you see?

#### Johan Commelin (Mar 26 2019 at 12:52):

I don't have those buttons in the upper right hand corner

#### Johan Commelin (Mar 26 2019 at 12:53):

Maybe it is the vim-plugin that is interferring?

#### Bryan Gin-ge Chen (Mar 26 2019 at 12:53):

I have the vim plugin active as well.

#### Johan Commelin (Mar 26 2019 at 12:54):

Hmmm... then I don't know.

#### Bryan Gin-ge Chen (Mar 26 2019 at 13:05):

I briefly got the popup to show up without the upper left buttons by opening the "Problems" window below but I can't reproduce it. Even then, hitting escape removed it.

#### Johan Commelin (Mar 26 2019 at 13:06):

Thanks for trying to help!

#### Johan Commelin (Mar 26 2019 at 13:07):

I'll just scroll to errors manually for now.

#### Johannes Hölzl (Mar 26 2019 at 13:33):

there were some changes in the problems view in recent VS code. @Johan Commelin which version do you have? The newest one is 1.32.3.

#### Kevin Buzzard (Mar 26 2019 at 13:36):

I just hit f8 a few times on linux and I can't see the x: I think it might be hidden by that window which I never remember how to turn off which has a version of my entire file in 1 point font so all I can see is the colours

#### Kevin Buzzard (Mar 26 2019 at 13:38):

esc still works for me though. I have 1.32.3

#### Kevin Buzzard (Mar 26 2019 at 13:40):

I get the x sometimes and sometimes not

#### Johan Commelin (Mar 26 2019 at 13:40):

I have 1.28.2. Maybe that's the problem.
