FIXED: 2019.18300: Temporary files in external editor issue

Postby timgerritsen » Fri Aug 09, 2019 4:01 pm

Hi there,

In the latest version (2019.18300) on windows 10, it seems that when opening a DAT in an external editor, its only possible to save once..
After saving, the temporary file seems to be disappeared and the file needs to be reopened again to save another time.

Hope its clear what I mean, if not let me know :)

Cheers,
Tim

Could you tell us what editor you are using?

Thanks so much Tim! We saw something like this last week when testing the new 'Sync to File' toggle on the Text DAT, but thought we had fixed it and the issue was solved. Your case with Sublime checked out, and since this would be a very annoying issue for programmers to deal with, we just uploaded a hotfix in build 2019.18360.

Thanks for your patience!

It seems that using VSCode (my version is 1.36.1) in 2019.18360 still has the same problem, but there is no problem in Notepad++ (I only tested it with these two editors)

Just tried 9th August build 18360 and I had no issues saving multiple times. Can you check your temp directory (likely C:/TEMP/touchtmp) and see if the file that is loaded is still there? 18360 doesn't clean up temporary editing files till TouchDesigner close so the file should still be there.

I seem to have found the reason. It works fine with the newly created text DAT of 18360, but it would be a problem if you open the toe created by an older version and try to edit the text DAT with a specific external text editor(Copying the text DAT created by the old version will also have problems).
The solution is [right click on > change DAT type > Text] (if have already opened the external editor, may have to restart TD)
(I used to find the same problem on the some OP with new features)
