Edit Template Dialog rendering problem?

Background: Running Vista Ultimate with Aero enabled, VS 2005 with all latest sp (including Vista support), ReSharper 2.5 #337.

IDE is running elevated; launched from a command prompt running as admin.

I try to add a new Live User Template by doing the following:

On the main menu, choose ReSharper | Options | Templates | Live Templates.

Select the target category (User Templates), and click (Create Template). Edit Template dialog opens.

It is completely empty except for a single unlabeled text box (the Abbreviation field) with the input validation error icon in the top right of the text box.. If I enter text and hit enter, the dialog just exits. The template name shows up in the list but does nothing.

If I drag the mouse cursor around the empty Edit Template dialog window, controls in the dialog randomly render under the cursor (for example the OK button will appear in the bottom right, the Move Up button will show up, the check boxes will render, etc.) BUT ONLY if I drag the cursor over them. The window starts out completely empty (no text of any kind) with just the top left text box and validation icon.

If I hit 'TAB' after typing the abbreviation the rest of the dialog fields appear.

Dunno if anyone else has seen this but it is frustrating.

Hello,

It is completely empty except for a single unlabeled text box
(the Abbreviation field) with the input validation error icon in the
top right of the text box..


We know about the painting problem and are looking forward to fixing it in
the 3.0 version.

By the way, this is just about painting, and nothing of the dialog functionality
is actually damaged — so you can still use it without any trouble after you
force the dialog to paint for the first time. This could be done by dragging
some other window over it, or dragging the dialog itself off the screen and
then back into view. Not convenient, still not a big trouble either.
