[Bug] Disappearing Code

Jul 1, 2013 7:06 AM

Tags: #actionscript #flash_cc

Since upgrading to Flash CC my colleagues and I have noticed several isntances of code disappearing. We would write code in the FLA on the timeline, save, export, and see the movie working only to be scolded by QA an hour later saying we didn't do any work! We then return to the FLA to find missing blocks of code. Perhaps there is some issue with FLA saving in Flash CC x64? Or perhaps the new code editor (which still lags, I was hoping the new Flash could finally pull of a text editor without lag with reliable code completion) just randomly loses things?

    Are you saving to local folder or to shared drive? Any specific repro steps?

    Hi ,

     

    Are you upgrading an old project created in the previous versions of Flash to Flash CC or are you creating a new project in Flash CC itself?

     

    One scenario that I can think of is when you upgrade a FLA created in the older version of Flash which has any AS2 code attached to instances on Stage. In this case the FLA will open up in Flash CC throwing a warning about AS2 code and on trying to save/publish the FLA the actions associated with the buttons or movieclips instances will be ignored.

     

    Thanks and Regards,

    code added to a moveclip timeline will not be saved in flash cc unless something is changed on-stage.  this is a known bug.

     

    to prevent the problem, change something on-stage or don't add code to movieclip timelines (other than the main timeline).

    Great to hear it has been fixed, waiting for update. I can confirm this bug. Has been happening to me lately and I thought I was losing my mind, seemed like every fix I made at the end of a session would then disappear on next start up. I am OCD about saving and this really caught me off guard. Just today I managed to recreate the problem several times by opening a movie clip tacking on some code on the end, going to file > save instead of my usual ctrl+s, then closing flash out all together upon return the newly added code was missing. This is a big minus. And yes this file is a port from CS6 but all AS3.

    They're layers in some movieclips. The layers on the main timeline seems to work fine

    The easy way to save documents is: After you edited a layer, lock it and unlock it, then save

    Good tip but still this needs to be fixed, if you add up all the wasted time all those who code have lost on the tail end of their projects it would be very significant.

    When can we expect the next patch?  I have a project I'm waiting to finish because I don't want to risk lost code.
