[quote=“sk1.publicc, post:12, topic:194356”]I’ve been setting up a lot of new control panels on some iPads recently and have been absolutely plagued by this issue. Sometimes I’ve lost an entire hour of configuration work.
I save the new panel, navigate into it and back to other panels… everything appears to be fine. But if I then force close the app (via iOS) and then start it again - the panel update is completely gone.
The most frustrating thing is that I cannot predict when it will happen. Sometimes the changes are retained without issue. I just can’t see a pattern to it.
To limit the impact of it happening, I’ve found that if I keep my changes to small chunks of work, save the config regularly (from the layout editor), navigate to a different control panel and then force close the app there… most of the time that chunk of work is retained. Maybe it’s an unnecessary ritual given I don’t know what the actual cause is, but it gets me through. I’m running v2.9 of the app.[/quote]
How old were the setups on those iPads? Have you been using HomeWave for a long time (several versions) on the devices?
I may have tracked this down to a bug having to do with older configuration files. What you could try is:
- Save your current configuration to a file on your iPad (Settings->Files->Save Configuration)
- Clear the current config (Settings->Files->Clear all settings)
- Reload the configuration you saved earlier.
This will hopefully get rid of the legacy stuff in the config file, so that the problem no longer occurs.
Edit: if you use one device for creating screens that you use on aother device, do this on both devices.
