Bendpoints swapped opening file Windows/OS X

Sleurhutje 2 years, 5 months ago



When saving a project on e.g. a Windows machine and then opening it on an OS X machine, the first time the project is opened then bendpoints for several wires in both breadboard and pcb layout are reversed in order.


I.e. when there is a wire between two parts that has say 3 bendpoints, the last bendpoint before the second part where the wire is attached to, changes place with the bendpoint before the last bendpoint. This causes an unusable project because all wires are messed up. When trying to move a wrong bendpoint, it jumps to the dragged bendpoint and switched bendpoint jump to their original location. When removing a switched bendpoint, the entire wire is removed.


For the breadboard layout, this isn't a great deal. But for the pcb layout it's very annoying because it's almost impossible to correct all traces. Starting from scratch is the faster method.


Tried this on Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 2008 R2 Remote Desktop versus OS X 10.8, OS X 10.9. All with latest updates and fixes. And the lastest version of Fritzing (even removed it, removed remaining files manually, reboot and reinstall).
