As the title says, NamedPositions are not saving, lost hours of work last night . Just ran a test file to confirm this morning, same outcome, save a file with NamedPositions, close Rhino, re-open file, nada, zilch, no NamedPositions saved ??
After some more quick testing, the problem seems to be with 6.25. If I use 6.24 it saves the NamedPositions. Not tried with V7WIP, no time at the moment
Can you please provide us with a smallish file and instructions to follow to repeat the problem?
If I can repeat it here, I can get a defect report to the developers and get it on the pile to be fixed.
Hi John, ok just tested this again, same result, this file had 2 NamedPositions when I saved it. I closed the file, re-opened and they have disappeared
np test 2.3dm (2.8 MB)
I need the file prior to the problem, WITH the named views, so I can try opening and saving it to see them missing.
I need to duplicate the problem.
I created two named positions in your file, saved/closed the file, and reopened it.
The NPs were there.
Are you saving the files on your local SSD/HD?
yes saving to desktop on MBP, here’s another test, same result, loses Named Positions, try it a couple of times, close Rhino 6.25 completely, then open application again, and select recent file from splash window, Named Positions disappear, nada, zilch, gone !
np test 3.3dm (2.7 MB)
Sorry to be a pest, but I’m missing some crucial step.
If I open your new file and close it, nothing was changed so there’s nothing to Save. The file just closes.
To get it to Save, I need to add a bit of geometry, then close, and I’m asked if I want to save. I click Save and reopen the file, the named Positions are still there.
Are you using Export and making a new copy in a new location or something else?
I’m running a slightly newer in-house 6.26 build. I’m not aware of any new changes.
No exporting or importing, just a new file, add some simple geometry , add a NamedPosition, then jumble the geometry around a bit, add another NamedPosition , save, close Rhino, then open again
I think the critical step in reproducing this is closing and restarting Rhino. I tried to reproduce it several times by just saving, closing, and re-opening a file and couldn’t reproduce this bug. But the first time I saved, quit Rhino, re-started Rhino, and opened the file - all Named Positions were gone.
yep, close the programme, then re-open file, all NP gone
I can reproduce it.
This is strange.
If I open the file that I was experimenting with above in Rhino V6 (6.26.20133.11312, 2020-05-12) it looks like it has no Named Positions.
But if I open the same file in the V7-WIP (7.0.20133.12126, 2020-05-12)
the Named Positions are still there. Apparently they are just not being seen when the file is opened in V6.
yeh, just opened same file in V7 WIP and the NamedPositions are there, strange but true
I just rolled back to 6.24 and the problem exists there too.
This doesn’t seem to be a regression.
Still a bug, but not a new bug.
I tested this in Catalina 10.15.4
RH-58609 Named Position: Closing a file with NamePositions, then Quitting and restarting Mac Rhino deletes the saved named positions in the file
should be fixed in the latest Rhino 6 for Mac Service Release (6.27). Thanks again for reporting this!
