Hello, I have been trying for a while to figure this one out, and still nothing yet. Hoping for some help with this one.
WHAT IS THE BUG
I created my own Type called “Projects” because I could not change the one that came with AnyType called “Project” (which was installed at the time but I then uninstalled it later) so I made my own and added the “s”.
But now it’s not working right! I deleted everything in my project folder so to see if that works and moved them into the “task” Type but they do not show up on other devices. I have all 4!
Windows, Mac os, iPhone OS, and Android OS are different on some of them.
I can not install the AnyType Type called “Project”.
HOW TO REPRODUCE IT
I am not sure. This one is kinda hard to figure out.
Thanks @Jason_Eleazar I know this issue has been a head-ache for some time now.
Before I forward it to the team: I see you’ve done a fair amount of trial and error, but have you tried rebuilding this Type completely from scratch, w/out converting the pre-installed one? If so, does it always result the same?
I also want to note that there are several known issues with customize Types and Templates, attributed mostly to buggy accounts. I have a hunch that some corrupted files and objects won’t survive the migration to the new infrastructure in a couple of months. For 95% of users, (especially relatively recent ones) everything will be smooth as silk, but for our long time testers…well much has changed since the early days.
With that said, consider this legacy version to be a scratch pad and be mentally prepared to start fresh when the MVP arrives. The good news is, we are working on a cool way to export everything.
As of recent, .log and any file can actually be uploaded to the Topic exactly the same way you upload images. They are retained when forwarded to the devs, so it’s really handy!
Can you send a tutorial on how to collect the debug file here? I can’t remember where to do it.
Can you explain more about how to protect my data for now? I definitely don’t want to lose anything I have now.
What should I do for now?
Is there a way to back things up or prepare for now until we get the new infrastructure completed?
Also, is it worth reporting bugs still if the new infrastructure has not been deployed yet? because what we are using is temporary and is going to be switched out for the new infrastructure? I just want to make sure I am understanding this right.
I thought it was going to be an automatic migration process that just happens in the background.
I am just not thinking about it, but most of these questions probably will be answered in the coming up “Town-Hall Meeting”
I know it will work out fine how ever it works, I am sure it will be great.
I am excited about switching to the new infrastructure because the more I use the current version of AnyType, the more it seems like it’s falling apart more.
I have another issue now where I can not access one page I just recently created.
Okay, i will say that i tried very several hours to get figure this out but did not get anywhere. I am not much of a technical guy, even though I would like to be. I am not sure I am understanding the instructions. it seems lacking info as to what to do for someone who does not know this stuff. Maybe if there was a video showing how to do it. I tried the Mac also and was completely lost.
here is the command I tried to enter after trying to add the Environment Variables. also because this form is public, I have changed the username to “username”. just FYI…
In Windows, under Step 5, did you create 2 new user variables as instructed?
for Step 9:
After \Programs\ in the command line, it might be “anytype” not “anytype2”, you should check your directory folder (You can confirm by navigating there manually, but under View, you’ll need hidden items enabled to see it).
