Re-attaching does not work in some cases

Postposted Marcel » February 18th, 2015, 1:52 pm

Hello Vlad,

I'm not sure if you know that the following issue still exists because a very similar issue has already been fixed by you. So I think it is better to inform you about it because it has cost me much time already:

How to reproduce:

1. Make a note with an Excel-attachment.
2. Open this Excel-attachment by double-klicking on it.
3. Make some changes in Excel and press save.
4. Make some further changes in Excel and press save again.
5. Close Excel.

--> All changes that are made in Excel are not written back to AMNO.

The trap here:
Making small changes in an attachments does work without problems as long as you don't save the table while editing on it. So it seems that you can rely on the re-attaching.
But as soon as you make a big amount of changes and save the table while working on it from time to time (to be sure nothing will be lost) you will loose EVERYTHING that you have changed since opening the table.

I don't know if it is even possible to solve this issue but I think you should know about it.

Marcel.

Indeed, it looks like there is a problem with saving changes back in AMN which can appear under certain coditions. It's not related to attachment size, but to the fact that after first saving of changes the app will prompt for saving changes back to AMN, and, when this prompt is displayed (you cannot see it from Excel), all further changes are not tracked. We've just fixed it upon your report. Please try build #792 below:

Hello Vlad,

thank you for reproducing and trying to fix the problem.

I have tried your new build #792 but unfortunately the problem still exists.

I have tested it on Windows 7.

Ok, then try build 793 - http://downloads.vladonai.com/Install_AllMyNotes_3_11_Beta_b793.exe
It looks like various versions of Excel save data in various manner.

Hello Vlad,

I have tested re-attaching in AMNO #793 with Excel 2013, Word 2013 and LibreOffice.

Everything works now! Thank you for fixing this. You are great :-)

Marcel.
