I realise I should report these issues in a separate thread … previously reported in one of the pinned threads.
I’ve used the WIP’s very reliably for at least a year, however since the implementation of the feature where we no lomger save, there are two problems.
Bug: Open the file to say view or print or export to another format,
usually with a client or the manufacturer. I exit and am forced the ‘revert’ the file, even
though I never wanted to save it in the first place. every time the
file will be corrupted saying invalid object in the file. luckily I keep
backup copies of my files.
Workflow: If I open a file and start making changes, I can no longer
choose save as because the file is already saved. If I then choose
’duplicate’, I end up with both a copy and my original that reflect my
changes, so my original is lost. This is a bit brutal (a bit like travelling through guandong in the rain today) because if you forget (which is extremely easy), there is no way back.
I would prefer the file does not save until I give it the go ahead.
- Bug: So today I was moving parts around, duplicating parts, aligning things etc. and not wanting to save the file, purely working in Rhino on a macbook with the mold maker. I tried to Undo everything to avoid the corruption problem, however when exiting I was still asked to Revert. I would assume that if all changes are undone, there’s nothing to revert.
The corruption is very reliable and reproducable so should be simple to determine if it’s a real bug or some quirk of my system. It may be amplified as I generally travel with my mac but use a desktop PC at my studio and home with Windows for various programs including Rhino. Invariably rhino for mac is for small tweaks and for facilitating discussions in my case.
