I was going to release my old unreleased plugin, but looks like things aren't working anymore with Lightroom 4.2. I'm using withProlongedWriteAccessDo method for convenience, but it is throwing an error for me:
Oops! An untagged string (?:0: attempt to call field 'getProgressScope' (a nil value)) got thrown far enough that we display it to the user. This shouldn't happen.
I agree, it shouldn't happen.
local kat = LrApplication.activeCatalog()
This prints out hello and then crashes... Any ideas? I think this was working fine with LR3 and LR4.0.
I stopped using the prolonged-access version of with-do a long time ago. I don't like the way it frightens users that are already a bit skiddish to begin with...
But, I was able to confirm the problem (although because of the aformentioned, I have no idea when such a problem may have first crept in). Consider reporting bug:
This seems to be fixed in 4.3 RC 1
Thanks for reporting back .
