(PNG) save problem

Recommended Posts

PDN 3.5.8 (64bit) on Windows 7.

Sometimes when I'm saving an image as png the content is not correct. It looks like that the save funtion does not get the correct data from memory. It is not deterministic, so I can't provide a step by step instruction to reproduce the problem. I'm guessing I did always the following:

- create a new image

- copy something in

- save the image (which asks for a name)

- selecting a name with extension .png

- the png option dialog appears

- maybe I pressed OK before the preview has been computed

- the funtion terminates w/o error but the content is not correct

I'm not sure if this a png problem or a general problem with the save function.

A second save gives the correct content.

It happened 4 or 5 times for me in 4 weeks. So not quite often but because you are not getting an error message it is a risky thing...

If you can get me a consistent, or even semi-consistent, list of repro steps and a sample image, that will help.

What type of system do you have? As in, OS, CPU (make & model), RAM.
