PictureData Bug

Postby JoeKoomen2011 » Sun Apr 09, 2017 6:56 am

This seems new. I open any window with graphic that have pictureData in them and I get a "Sorry, SuperEdit doesn't recognize that image format." error for each graphic on the card. After clicking OK, an empty graphic shows up until I've clicked an error message for them all. THEN it starts all over again. The only way out of this loop is to force-quit.

Now the original graphics were PNG, but I understood that SC converts all graphics to PICT files when it saves them so this is confusing.

I am not seeing this here so I guess I would first ask:

1.) Create new project in SuperCard.

2.) Capture a small portion of your screen to a png file on the desktop (COMMAND-OPTION-SHIFT-4, then draw out a small rect).

3.) Create a draw rectangle on the card of the new project. Open Object Info for the draw graphic and click the File button.

4.) Select the newly captured PNG file on the Desktop.

5.) Quit SuperCard and open the project in SuperEdit.

Do you see the same kind of error?

I don't understand this.

I guess the images were some how corrupted (15 graphics in 3 different windows though)?

I imported the images all back in in SuperCard and everything is fine. I assumed it was a bug since it seemed to be pretty widespread.

It may indeed be a bug, but without having a way to reproduce it, it won't get fixed. Try and keep an eye out for it in case it happens again.
