Having problems saving changes

All of a sudden I am unable to save changes to a Project. The "Save as" botton does nothing while the "Save" button and saving on exit appear to work but replace my file with on of 0 or <40kb (fortunately I've backed-up). Anyone having similar issues or any ideas? The application isn't shutting down properly either (all happening on multiple machines and even after re-intsalls).

That is very strange... was there anything strange going on with your computer ?  I'll check with the developers but we have never heard of that.... not that it helps you!  DId things get figured out ?

Seems to be related to the save location of the file. If I copy the file to a local location such as my C:/ drive or Desktop and work with it there, everything is fine. However, when I try to acess the file from the server where I'd prefer to keep it (for security, sharing, back-up etc purposes) it all goes to heck. So, for now, I can just keep moving it around and hope that I don't lose track of the correct version. Meanwhile, if you have any ideas about a fix I'd be keen to hear from you.

This is a significant issue.... we are immediately working on a soluton.  It is very strange as it has not been isolated for the cause and happens very infrequently.  We hear about it for certain when it happens.... we are doing 2 things

  • Short term: we will have the project file stored both as a .pod and also automatically as an .xml file.  This will allow in the rare occasion there is an issue to recover from the .xml file
  • Long term: we are completely rewriting ProjectLibre and the new version will solve this problem.  We don't have a release date but are looking in the Summer timeframe.  It will be a modular OSGI rewrite that will provide tremendous benefits for the community and allow for extensions/connectors

Hi Jodie,

ProjectLibre was designed as a desktop single project solution.  There is something odd when you save to a server. We are not triaging the issue as we have a new version coming out. There are some storage devices that change the .pod to .POD.   That causes an issue with the open project filter.  We are totally re-writing ProjectLibre and one of the updates will be a server/multiproject version.

Oh okay!

I'll save to my PC, although I do need my team to have read only access to the file - do you think I could save the master on my PC and then copy it to the server each day for everyone to view? Do you know how far away the new release is? thank you Jodie
