Of the three files I sent you in earler email:
The following two are from V5.1.2a and contain the "Draw-Notes-Comments" in Layers 1 & 4,
they both load into V5.2.0 OK but are corrupted on saveing.
"Rowandale - 200" is my full version with all Layers
"Rowandale - 200 -Layout Only -L1 L4" - is cut down to just the two layers containing the four "Draw-Notes-Comments"
The following is modified to operate correctly in v5.2.0
"Rowandale - 200 -Layout Only -L1 L4 - No Comments" is the one which V5.2.0 loads , saves and re-loads OK
the only difference is that the comments have been removed.
I replied on the thread earlier - but maybe only Dave saw it?
So repeating direct to you
I initially found the problem appeared to be a fault in a "custom turnout" I had setup
a number of years ago - a return loop with a couple of points included.
When I edited the parameters file to remove it - the original problem disappeared
But then I found I still had problems when saving in Version 5-2-0 GA
and then getting errors when reloading the file, with only part of the layout being displayed.
After a lot of to & froing between 5-2-0 & 5-1-2a
- Removing various layers & individual items:
a) Load original in 5-1 - remove layers/items & save with new name.
b) Load into 5-2 - looks fine - Save from 5-2
Realised after a bit 5-2 crashed out immediately after saving ( or was it part through ?)
c) Load again into 5-2 - gives loads of error messages & eventually
only loads part of the layout.
I seem to have narrowed the problem to embedded "Draw - Note - Comment" containers.
When I remove the four of these I had in two layers, then the new version now works
for me with no problem.
Alsotried a new blank file, then Draw > Notes > Comment, Placed the default Note on drawing.
Then File > Save and immediate crash out exit from file. !!
Restart 5-2 - Yes to Offer to recover - blank file. Also tried a few tracks - no problem.
Then again Draw > Notes > Commen, Placed the default Note on drawing. Immediate crash on Saveing.
So does seem to be a problem with the "Comments"
I am using Windows10 - with all updates.
