Cura 3.4b - File Names Reverting Before Saving

Recommended Posts

I've been consistently getting issues with the filename reverting back to its previous state (unnamed, whatever the first model loaded was, etc). I'll enter the name but when it saves (unlisted on the SAVING" dialog) it will do so (and report it in the "saved as" notice, if you happen to read it.

 

Sometimes I know I've hit the button without hitting enter first. I suspect it happens when you hit enter but then hit save too soon (within a second?).

 

There is one caveat - I'm running two instances of CURA at one time - I have two different printers and the settings get confused going back and forth.

 

That may be the root cause of the issue, but I never had it until 3.4b, and I feel it is related to the input checker.

Guess what guys?! I woke up this morning to find my 15 hour print of the wrong thing is coming along great!

 

Does anyone want to buy it, cause I sure don't need another. That's why I carefully chose a filename before hitting save.

 

How can this not be acknowledged by the team? It's not a Coding Challenge to make sure the file name in the file name blank is used when saving something, how about a little "We're very busy, but we admit that's a trivial problem, and we'll work on it someday"?

The sure-fire method I have is clicking in the blank, changing the name, hitting return. Clicking in another blank, but not a pulldown (so it doesn't reslice), pick out of it, then hit save.

 

I've printed 15 things I didn't mean to, and ruined a few tests because my "testprintV4" saves as "testprintV3".

 

I have no idea how you interact with the name blank, but when you leave it, it would be good to do some housekeeping.

Could you help test a fix for me?

 

You have to edit resources/qml/SaveButton.qml:

https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/blob/3.4/resources/qml/SaveButton.qml#L259

Around line 259, add the command forceActiveFocus(), like so:

            onClicked:
            {
                forceActiveFocus()
                UM.OutputDeviceManager.requestWriteToDevice(UM.OutputDev[...]
            }

Note that I have shortened the line that starts with UM.OutputDeviceManager, because the forum would mangle the formatting otherwise. Please leave that line as is.

 

If that works for you, I will submit a PR so it gets included in the next version.

 

Update: See https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/pull/4057/files

 I have tested it, but it doesn't work.

 

Discovered a way to successfully change filename: instead of clicking where filename is to be writen, when I click on the pencil icon then change filename, it works, to the trick is around the "pencil icon". Just click on pencil name  at least once, then I change filename and save and it works, no need to click on pencil icon anymore, just once.

Hmm, strange. It did fix the issue for me. So there may be an additional issue.

 

Could you describe what you do exactly to make it *not* work? The following steps resulted in the wrong filename for me before the patch, but in the correct filename after the fix.

 

* Load a model

* Click on the jobname and edit it

* Do not press Enter when done, do not click any other text entry field when done

* Press Save to File

Hi again. I've checked what you wrote and ... it works. I don't know why it didn't work before, maybe I made a mistake on "savebutton" file.

thanks !!!

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
