Vertical position of theme image not selectable any more with Tiger 2.2.5

Hello,
recently there was an update to Tiger 2.2.3. There I noticed that the vertical position of the theme image is selectable any more in 8 of 11 albums. After removal of ~/.jalbum/skins/Tiger and thus switch back to Tiger 2.0.3 everything was fine again in all albums.
Today I updated to Tiger 2.2.5 and the problem is still there. I've attached two screenshots to show the problem.
There is no error message in the system console.

My environment:
jAlbum 16.1.2
Linux bond 4.17.14-1-default #1 SMP PREEMPT
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_181-b13)

Thank you for any hints and your support.

I don't know the cause or the cure, but the last version in which the theme image crop focus worked correctly appears to be Tiger 2.2.0.

I think I've found the cause, and the cure.

In Tiger 2.2.5, open the skin directory - Tools, Open directories, Skin directory - and edit the skin.properties file in a text editor. Delete the third line:
themeImageSizeName=folderImageSize
Note that there is a similar line towards the bottom of that file, differing only in capitalization - leave that second occurrence alone.

Thank you for your fast response jGromit.

I deleted that first occurence but unfortunately it did not work in my case. Following your hint I did a diff of skin.properties 2.0.3 with 2.2.5. After I deleted
editableThemeImageSize=true
it works fine for me now as a workaround.

I hope Laza reads this post and implements a final solution. Thank you Laza.

Yes, I'm getting strangely inconsistent results. The edit you've made does appear to work, but it disables one of the new features of Tiger. Laza will have to deal with this one.

You might want to check that again. I'm seeing the error both on Win10 and macOS 10.13.6. If I start a new Tiger project and add a few images, the theme image doesn't show a cropping mask, as it should.

Checked again, created a new project using Tiger and added a few pictures. I can drag pictures to the theme image and am able to slide it's vertical position.

As I said; no problem :-)

I'm using Java 'buit-in' to jAlbum, might that be a clue?

No difference - on both platforms, I'm using jAlbum 16.1.5 as distributed (with a core update), with bundled Java. I never get a theme image crop mask. I have to go back to Tiger 2.2.0, and then it magically reappears.

ETA: BTW, this gets very confused if you start the project while another skin is selected, one that properly shows the theme image crop mask, then switch to Tiger. In that case, the mask remains in place, and is still effective. This is a case in which very controlled testing is required to reproduce the problem.

I updated Tiger using the .zip file, maybe there is a difference between the .zip and .jaskin file.

The only difference between Tiger.jaskin and Tiger.zip is the file extension. They are actually the same file, bit for bit. Your OS has been told to open a .jaskin from within jAlbum, rather than extracting the files, but that's the only distinction.

Uhhh, that appears there because the skin properties editor has added it... I haven't used it for a long time - because it screwed up some of my settings -, but now I gave it another try. Didn't spot this little bug. I will fix this later today.

I can't make it work - none of the capitalization options work for me, only the right-click -> Set crop focus (on OSX).

I think this is a jAlbum core bug.

If I start with Gromit, that has a separate theme image, but not an editable theme image size, everything works. These are the relevant settings in skin.properties:
themeImageSizeName=themeImageSize
separateThemeImage=true
editableThemeImageSize=false
But if I change editableThemeImageSize to true, the regular cropping mask disappears. So, it's that new option that seems to be going wrong.

To test this, you really need to shut down jAlbum completely, edit the skin.properties file, launch jAlbum again, etc. You can't leave things running while you do the edits. Even reloading the skin isn't good enough.

jGromit and Laza, thank you very much for analyzing.

I tested steps jGromit mentioned above.
With
editableThemeImageSize=false
each of my 11 albums is correct.
With
editableThemeImageSize=true
8 of my 11 albums are not correct, 3 are correct.
