#17 closed defect (fixed)
'Save As' sometimes destroys old file.
|Reported by:||finticemo||Owned by:||yrizoud|
I'm not very clear on the circumstances in which this happens, but sometimes:
- I have a file already saved,
- I make a lot of changes and save it as a new file,
a.pngis now gone. There is usually a file a.BAK, so the content is not lost. Nevertheless, this is problematic: I don't expect to have to look around for BAK files to find the content I had already saved to
To be clear, this is only *sometimes*. I've created 80+ icons in the past two days and only 4 of those suffered this effect.
I'll add more detail to this report as I work it out.

Okay, pretty sure I understand this now:
It occurs every time that I perform 'Save as' and select a pre-existing file (b.png) to save over. Once that happens, the old file (a.png) is nuked.
This can be really annoying when modifying a set of similar icons.

I fail to reproduce this with latest source https://gitlab.com/GrafX2/grafX2/commit/ee322ed4371055b1fa7e81e7e0068a83981022bd
I'm using FreeBSDand tried to save to an already existing png file as you describe

Does someone reproduce the issue with a recent GrafX2 version ?
If not, I think we can close the issue !

I close now because nobody reproduces. I think it is fixed.
Do not hesitate to reopen if you reproduce.
This is still elusive, but I think the bug is related to loading the same file in both spare page and main page, and later saving one of them under a different name.
