App Crash: renaming source file

by pinguwin » Thu Oct 28, 2010 3:52 am

load file
click on image to highlight
embed all data (click on)
rename file in explorer or regular file window
export flash file
(tour gives a popup saying source file can't be found)

And the app crashes.

Now there seems to be different ways that you can do this, sometimes it seems I can just rename the file and click on the image again and it will crash. However, the steps above are the most reliable way to get it to crash. I am short of time tonight to do a full exploration but this crash is consistent and it's not just a warning, the app dies.

Lest you think this scenario is unlikely, it's been happening to me tonight a number of times and I finally nailed down what is happening. Sometimes I would generate the image, rename the source image, then get something to eat or whatever, I would get distracted. When I'd come back to the computer, I'd see the image and say, "Oh, I have to generate this one." forgetting that I'd renamed it and it would crash on me. So it's not a one-in-a-million-never-gonna-happen-again-thing.

Using version

Was continuing to use Tour and found this bug is more likely to occur than I originally thought. I gen the flash file, move the original image and flash file into my "completed" directory, and then I click on the image in the tour canvas to delete it and it crashes. Just clicking on it is causing it to crash.

Why do you wish to rename a file while it is open in APT using another program?

Why are you still using V1.0.9 of APT?
