MC-PT naming bug

Postby darob » 09 May 2018

So if you lose your mind and save an MC.NET workspace with the same name as a PT portfolio, the next time you open the portfolio it'll have no strategies or instruments.

Hello darob,

MultiCharts and Portfolio Trader workspaces have different file formats and extensions. The files are isolated - having the same file name will have no effect on the file contents. The file from one application cannot be used in the other one. Please make sure you are saving your progress before closing the workspace file.

Hi Henry, I'll follow this up with tech support. Something's corrupting somewhere--the PT workspace opened as I described and using file>Open Workspace in MC the workspace being opened has the PT extension although it is in fact the MC workspace.

The solution is don't select any auto-complete proposals when doing Save Workspace As...

Hello, darob!

We managed to reproduce this on our end with the detailed instruction you provided. Indeed inadvertence when saving a workspace might lead to losing the workspace. Thanks for pointing this out. We’ll improve this behavior in the upcoming versions, but till then please take care to save workspaces in appropriate file formats.
