I have been seeing similar problems with previous versions with a simple file save. Try closing PE and re-opening and then doing the export. That seems to work for the file save problem.

Thanks for the suggestion... I rebooted the computer and tried it again.
Still no go.

Tonight, I tried to export other indicators... some work, some don't.

Then it dawn on me... it is the file name that is at fault !!!

I was exporting an indicator with the _v2.5 suffix added to the end of the file name.

PE does not like the dot.

I removed the dot and everything works fine.

Glad you figured it out. earlier I was checking out the issue with scaling that you posted. Thats a weird one. If you manually set the scale to .5 or 1 instead of .25 it works just fine. When you set it to .25 it does all sorts of weird things.
Thats one for them to figure out.

Hi TJ,

There is a bug in MC that doesn't allow exporting studies containing a dot in their name. This bug will be fixed in future versions.

Best regards.
