#238 closed defect (fixed)

Will only save the first time entries are made into form document.

This is very strange. I enter data into a form and do a "save as" and it saves it fine. Next I reopen the form and make some changes in the form data and do another "save as" and the saved file does not have the changes. It is like it keeps the original in memory and only saves that, but the changes somehow don't make it into that original in memory to be saved.

Also, after doing a "save as" of an updated form as mentioned above, when Lucide is closed it comes up with a message that the document has changed, do you want to save it. If a yes response is given the results are as above, i.e. the changes are not saved so in essence the opened form is saved again with none of the data changes.

Aside from issues discussed in ticket #273, I cannot replicate the problem here under lucide1.3.6GKYpoppler0.42.07-31-16a. Granted, file saving is still quirky, at best (as is form fill-in), but the data saved in the Saved as version was there upon re-opening, and modifying that, saving (to yet another document name, as it is still not possible to save over the current file), and opening that latest version displays all saved data.

Best workaround for these multiple filename issues is to alternate between a set of filenames.

Meanwhile, 1.3.6 will be released shortly. Please test against that and report, Cliff.
