Wire color change problem

il_mix 5 years, 6 months ago

I've noticed this problem with Fritzing 0.7.12, both on Windows XP and Ubuntu 12.

When I want to change the color of a wire, in breadboard view, to a color already used in the breadboard view, I need to select the color two times.

Steps to reproduce the problem

  1. open a new sketch
  2. draw a wire in breadboard view
  3. change wire color to "black"; the wire changes color
  4. draw a new wire
  5. change new wire color to "red"; the wire changes color
  6. draw a new wire
  7. change new wire color to "black"; the wire doesn't change color
  8. change new wire color to "black"again; the wire changes color

I think the problem is related to the "ticks" in the wire color menu; the first color change remove the tick, the second set the tick again and change the wire color.

 

Bye

Hi Mix,

By coincidence, somebody else just reported the bug.

Uh, I'm sorry. I've searched for it but...not enough.

Sorry--my apologies--my last post wasn't clear. I just meant that it was funny that we got the two reports at nearly the same time--not that there was any problem with you making the post, and it just happened to be redundant.

Cheers,
