Load and save which were previously working fine on master seem to have stopped working with the most recent series of changes. I don't recall having problems on Aranuvirqt5 branch either.

It's possible this is a regression caused by a missed commit.

Do you get any error message at all?

#2 Updated by Joel Palmius 11 months ago

However, atm I can't see that anything is missing.

If I a) merge all feature branches and b) exclude everything under blendertools and c) exclude everything related to shells and FBX exports, then I get the attached diff.

This is not much. It's some random noise in support scripts, the install plugin from zip, and the possibly faulty numpy fix.

Are you sure exactly the same procedure works in aranuvirqt5 but fails in master?

#3 Updated by Rob Baer 11 months ago

Ok. I had a chance to try this on another machine and the current master branch does not to be saving. Likewise I am unable to save with the current AranuvirQT5 although I think both were working to save at some time in the past.

There is no error when you click the save button, but there is also no sign (like a progress bar) that any action is even attempted.

I tested several of the exporters (.obj, .dae, and .fbx) The exporter seem to be functional except for FBX in binary mode. That is, FBX seems to export in ASCII mode but not in Binary mode. I think the binary FBX issue is known.

Is it possible some security option in Windows is blocking MakeHuman to write to disk? What's your version of Qt5.

BTW, could we decide which bug tracker to use in the future?
