File -> Save As menu item is missing.

Actions #1

Updated by Derik Barseghian about 14 years ago

I suspect this may be related to the build system, David do you see this problem too? I see it both on my linux cmd line build, and my mac eclipse build.

This bug has nothing to do with the build system. The Save As menu item is still available in Kepler 1.0.

Actions #3

Updated by Christopher Brooks about 14 years ago


The change was:
< File->Save\ ~As...=File->SaveAs

File->Save\ ~As...=File->Save\ As

Interestingly, Kepler-1.0 shipped with out the space:
< File->Save\ ~As...=File->SaveAs
but SaveAs still worked. This indicates that a bug was fixed elsewhere?

This fix did not work for me. I updated the common module to get this update by Christopher Brooks and opened Kepler and the Save As menu was still missing. This might be related to another bug (which I am about to enter) where the kars do not load properly the first time you try to run Kepler from the trunk (Hereinafter "K-trunk"). It seems that the configuration mechanism between 1.0 and trunk has been modified to some degree by someone. One new class I have noticed is KeplerMenuHandler, which is not in 1.0. Perhaps the absence of the "Save As" menu is related to this class... (I don't know if that is true or not.)

I tried running Kepler twice after typing "ant clean-cache" to verify that this is not a caching problem.

Interesting that it does not work for you. I'm on a Mac, running Java 1.5.0_16.
I'm running Kepler from the command line using "ant run".

To replicate this, I did:

mkdir kepler
cd kepler
svn co
cd build-area
ant change-to -Dsuite=vanilla-trunk
ant run

I can make the Save As menu appear and disappear by changing

I did a similar test under Windows 2000 Server with Java 1.5.0_17 using
the steps above and was able to make the Save As menu appear and disappear.

Can you give the steps above a try in a separate directory, perhaps on another
machine? This would be interesting to track down, as it is likely to affect
other people as well.

Can someone else try the steps above and see if they get the Save As menu?

It is a mystery as to what changed and caused the initial missing menu choice.
I suspect a bug was fixed after Kepler-1.0, perhaps in the KeplerMenuHandler
class? KeplerMenuHandler was introduced by Chad. The version control log
messages indicate that it is part of the much needed effort to get rid of the
code that duplicates Ptolemy code.

It actually works with a fresh checkout. I must have modified something else (it was not the file) that was not being updated (precisely because I modified it). Anyway, I am closing this bug because the problem was with my local working copy.
