Reveal 1 showing (partially) blank tree

Recently Reveal has started showing blank leaves in the outline view (see attached screen shot).

In this case, it was a UITableView over which had been presented a search results table view. If you scroll the tree down, the visible table view tree is sometimes visible, sometimes not.

However, this is not the only case in which I've encountered this problem. Often I get inconsistent behavior, with leaves sometimes blank and sometimes shown.

The behavior is not limited to iOS 11.

    Hi Phil,

    Sadly, this is a known issue with Reveal 1.6.3 under High Sierra It is fixed in more recent releases (anything after High Sierra's public release should be fine).

    I don't quite understand. I'm on MacOS 10.13.2. What do I have to do to fix this?

    Thanks, Tony!

    Hi Phil, we no longer support Reveal 1.6.3 - you can purchase an update to the current supported release of Reveal, or downgrade to macOS 10.12.x.

    There's info on the update to Reveal from when we released the first version using the new licensing scheme:

    I'm happy to answer any questions you have.

    I love Reveal but an annual license of $60 - $90 feels like a lot. I would be more inclined to upgrade if you continued bugfix support for older versions.

    Hi Phil, fair enough. We're a fairly small team - I hope you can understand that supporting older releases across multiple major OS updates from Apple would take time away from bug fixes and support for new iOS versions.

    Yes, I know it's a balancing act. And I did just upgrade to Reveal 2 :)
