Replace PDFs not fixed [SPLIT]

Recommended Posts

Hello, When I try to replace PDFs that are linked, the app only takes one at a time. 

When using the resource manager and clicking on Replace, it does not replace any other pdf but the first one. In the release notes, it said that it was fixed.

I'm using publisher RC3 (build 2005)

Can you point to that statement, please, as I don't see anything about this in the 2.2 release notes. I may have missed it, of course.

I believe this is what is maybe being referred to, but that's a fix for a crash replacing which is not what is being reported.

When replacing multiple PDFs, assuming you are replacing a PDF that has been placed multiple times and choosing the "parent" PDF to replace, all copies are being replaced for me on Mac and Windows.

Can you provide a video demonstrating the issue

In the video, at 2:05 is when you see that for the fifth PDF I tried to update the link (BP-101-001-C) from the "ISO Volume 1" folder to "ASME Volume 1" folder the update link does not change.

What I observed and it is in the video.

  1. I can update a few PDFs before it doesn't allow me to update other links: aka partially freezes.
    1. After updating a few PDFs, the app partially freezes in the sense that it is unable to locate the pdf in the document when I click Locate in the resource manager and I'm unable to access the layers panel.
  2. It doesn't show me a progress bar when saving.
  3. The app then partially freezes. You will see that I can zoom in and out and scroll but I'm unable to access the layers when I double click.
  4. also, please notice how when I close the app, it asks me to save: all good. but when I open the file again, it prompts me to use a recovery file then, all the links I Replaced weren't saved.

Note: please note that I have the prompt from the REsorce manager that a PDF was modified, but in reality is not updating the PDFs linked to the document.

Then from minute 4 onwards is "more fun": I close the app, save the file and then when I reopen the file, it asks to open a backup version of the file when it just asked to save the file before closing the app seconds before.

Let me know if you need further info.
