#1 Updated by ben leinfelder about 13 years ago

one thing that I noticed was that when resaving to a KAR with the same file name, I did not see any indication (in the console/logs) of the workflow/roml being serialized. Perhaps it sees that this kar has been cached and does nothing? There's definitely something going on with the caching here.

This bug is fixed in the Kepler suite, it still has problems in the WRP suite because RIOs do not get cached/saved properly and so the KAR file is not getting saved...

#3 Updated by ben leinfelder about 13 years ago

I tried running this in the 'kepler' suite and still had the same behavior. Here is what I did:
-open existing demo workflow
-save as KAR
-close workflow
-open saved KAR file
-remove an actor from the canvas
-save as KAR (overwrite same kar file)
-close workflow
-open KAR
Workflow still has my deleted actor

Also tried saving the modified workflow to a different .kar file, but the changes are still lost when i open the new file.
