Can not overwrite,

Postby bowlesj3 » 11 May 2009

I don't know if this has been fixed or not but my EL editor can not overwrite a study that is already out there when we are trying to use the "save as" function (it occurs even if MC is not running and not using the study). You have to do the extra step of deleting it then doing the "same as".

Fixing this would be helpful.
Thanks,
John.

Hi John,

Are you using the 2.1.999.999 version?
I tested Save As in MC 5 Beta 6 Version and the old file was overwritten with the new one without any issues.

Hi Marina,

Yes, still on MC 2.1.999.999. I haven't upgraded since I don't know if the aborts that occured in 3.1 beta have been fixed. That is the main reason for one of my prior suggestions that a bug numbering system be implemented. I guess it is too late now for that bug. Still holding to the strategy of making one upgrade to the last free one available when I get the time.

Thanks,
John.

Hey John.

Wouldn't be nice for the thread starter to have the power to delete messages like the above one :idea:

I hate spammers :!:

Hi Fernando,

It would be nice. It is a TSS job however.

I am curious how the spammers do it actually on a forum like this. Do they set themselves up as a guest then get deleted?

John.
