I have suddenly received from a user of one of my stack that has been
working fine for several years, are report that "my changes are not
being saved to the disk file!"
I had them email me the stack and have discovered this rather
incredible, obscure problem:
What you see in the field is not what you get if:
a) you put that field into a variable and write the variable to disk
b) copy the text and paste into BBEdit
c) simply put the fld into a url (to save to disk)
Now, I have isolated the problem to one long paragraph... tha simply
does not change... not matter what edits you make on screen and in
the field... even if you save the stack.. quit revolution, open
again.. .your edits will appea there on screen, but not in any kind
Further more... this is also apparent in the "contents" property of
the field where this one paragraph is "Stuck" in there and no edits
to the field will change it...
Anyone experience this before? Could some one look at the stack for me?
I will do some more tests, like create a new stack and past the text
the is "stuck" into a new field, but if someone had ideas, that would
help... it has my user *very* worried (for good reason)
