DEFECT (CC 777) - Losing Tabs

I’ve uncovered a bug that seems to be losing tabs - easy to reproduce:

Given this design


Note that the middle rectangle has three tabs.
I select the rectangle and click on the tabs button

Now all I do is click OK without changing anything:

Note that the tabs are now gone.

ALSO:
If I now try to add the tabs back in, they will not stay:

and press OK:

They will not get added.

I can’t duplicate that:

Please try rebooting, then adding the tabs — if it still doesn’t work, upload the file.

Ah…more info:

Problem did not occur until i turned on Tiling. Once tiling is turned on, the steps above will create the issue. Here’s the file I’m using:
File with tab issues.c2d (356 KB)

and my steps:

  • Open the file
  • Select the middle rect
  • Add three tabs (I put mine on the top of the rectangle - out of the lower tile - but I’m not sure if that matters yet)
  • Click OK - the tabs will remain. All looks good

Now go to Toolpaths and click Tiling on

Now go back to DESIGN, and click Tabs and press OK.
The tabs will disappear.

EDIT:
@WillAdams Have you reproduced it yet?
I checked…it does not matter if the tabs are in or out of the 1st tile…and it doesn’t seem to matter where you place them. I’ll do a little more experimentation and see if I can localize the issue even more.

ANOTHER EDIT
I created it from a file from scratch.

  • Created a 36" Rectangle
  • Applied tabs and pressed OK - everything worked correctly
  • Went to Toolpaths and selected TILING
  • Went back to Design and clicked TABS and OK - and the Tabs disappeared and cannot be created again.

@WillAdams I rebooted (as requested) and started from scratch with a simple rectangle on a new design - and was able to reproduce the problem with these steps:

Design Tab

  • New Design
  • Draw a rectangle
  • Apply Tabs (Click OK - Tabs Remain)

Toolpath Tab

  • Click Tiling On

Design Tab (Rectangle still selected)

  • Bring up Tab Dialog
  • Press OK (Tabs Disappear)

Please let me know if you are able to reproduce this behavior.

Yes, that I was able to replicate — putting this in now.

I have a work around until this issue is fixed. Once you create the tabs and they disappear go to edit menu and undo. Tabs will reappear.
Hope this helps

Now that’s a sweet work-around! It turns out that the undo will even preserve a new tab that’s added (or a change to the existing tabs). Excellent. I guess they’re doing something after the edit is completed to eliminate them. Good catch. Thanks!

Glad it worked out for you. I haven’t been working with CCPro for a couple of months and just happened on the problem after upgrading this morning.
