I have an issue where, after a few hours of inactivity and completely randomly (does not always happen), a blank grey screen covers the entire PHPStorm window, including the menus, status bar, etc. However, the editor still works behind this veneer! I can type things, open menus, etc. but blindly. Some of the popup hints work, but not others. Moreover, if multiple project windows are open, only some of them might have this problem.
I have seen similar reports, but apparently on those you could still see the main bar, and resizing the window helped. For me it unfortunately does not. Restarting the IDE helps, but the whole point is that this happens at precisely the most sensitive times, when a restart is painful. Speaking of which, it also happens in Rider, WebStorm and maybe IntelliJ (haven't had it open for long lately). I am on Windows 10.
Using the Dracula theme – it might be the culprit according to some reports, but just wanted to hear some feedback from the team. I cannot reliably reproduce this, because it happens after a while, but it occurs on a daily basis.
