#1729 Saving ActionScript code fails silently if the file extension is not SWF
Date created:
Type: bug
Visibility: Everybody
Assigned to:
State: new Help

> What steps will reproduce the problem? Change the file extension of an SWF file to something else (.dat in my case). Edit an ActionScript file and save it, resulting in a "Code successfully saved" message, then try to save to file. The save icon will remain "activated" for a bit and then nothing will happen, the file name will still be in bold and when trying to close it, a warning will pop up saying there are unsaved changes. Attempting to save multiple times or after the warning will result in the same behavior. > What is the expected output? What do you see instead? The file should be saved, if the save fails because the editor doesn't know the file format, either a warning should pop up saying the file can't be saved because the file extension is unknown, or save it like an SWF file (maybe with a warning to get confirmation from the user that saving it as SWF is the expected behavior even though it's not a .SWF file?). > What version of the product are you using? Is it "nightly build"? Which operating system do you have? Tried on an older version (can't remember what it was), updated hoping this was fixed but currently still present on nightly 1939, on windows 10 (build 19041). > Please provide any additional information below. If the problem is related to a SWF file, attach it here, otherwise we can't help you. My current workaround is copying the file, changing the extension to SWF, editing, then back to DAT.
