Working within Morpho 1.8, with a data package that includes PDF files stored as binary objects, I open the Morpho Editor by clicking 'Documentation/Add/Edit Documentation. The Morpho editor screen appears, the 'Working...' label appears, some data fields appear, and then the screen freezes. See attached screenshots for 'before' and 'after' pictures.

This problem may be due to the fact that this package contains 'only' binary objects (pdfs), which cause the editor to fail. But at least, the editor could halt gracefully with an error message such as 'Editor does not work for binary objects'.

by the way, the Data Package number is knb.245.1, stored in Metacat.

From the screenshot, it looks like you've added the PDF as a data table with a single (fake) column. In the next release of Morpho, you'll be able to attach an otherEntity rather than have to fake out Morpho. Also, binary files will be handled more gracefully.
But those comments do not explain the frozen tree editor...

#3 Updated by ben leinfelder almost 12 years ago

Running from the current SVN trunk, I cannot duplicate the frozen editor (tried using both knb.245.1 and the now-current knb.245.3 stored on the KNB Metacat instance).
It's possible that changes since 1.8 was released have 'fixed' this.
