File dialog issue (WB1.3 ver 34.20)

I'm having an issue with file dialogs in WB1.3 (34.20). I have a file dialog showing a list of files that is (currently) one file more than can be displayed in the box. The scrollbar is at the top of the scrollbox, but the file that is not listed is the FIRST file... you have to scroll "up" to see it. Does anyone know why this is happening? is there a fix? Maybe it was a problem in 34.20 but fixed in 34.34?

First of all, which file dialog library are you using? ASL didn't come with Workbench versions prior to 2.

That I couldn't tell you, perhaps it was something I compiled into the app (circa 1989)? Would a screen cap help?

Edit: Manx compiler (maybe that had a file dialog library?), screen cap: https://imgur.com/a/RJwThRX

I don't recognise the one in the picture. Maybe you just need to switch file requesters. Req.library is 1.3 compatible for certain. ARP.library is not one of the better ones though. Reqtools.library is the best but probably requires Kickstart 2 or newer.

Thanks a ton for the feedback! Looks like I'll have to live with it, I was just curious. My workaround will be to name my 2 new files something that isn't first in an alpha/numeric sort, so others will see them easier.
