Base path no longer editable in 3.05?

Post by tallahassee101 » Wed Aug 17, 2011 2:55 pm

Hi,

I recently upgraded my systems to Ranorex 3.05 ( all using Windows 7 ). Now when I try to go edit the base path by clicking on the path row in the repository, I get an empty box with a wand in it. If I right click on the base path item I see there is now an "edit path" option, however that just brings up a window that also does not allow me to edit the path. What is going on here?

Thank you for your help.

I tried to reproduce it but I have no issues with it. Do you observe the issue only on a special base path items or on each? Could you post us such a base path, maybe it depends on the length of the string inside the path cell. It seems to be a refresh problem. Please could you please try to navigate with the cursor keys on you keyboard when you are in edit mode. Maybe then it gets refreshed.

We found it was the result of a bad merge. Somehow all of the base paths got wiped when an icon's path code was duplicated on the merge. Took several hours to fix.
