Problem with preset manager

I am using the preset manager for Data Bridge design and I noticed that editing a theme does not populate the dialogue with the themes settings, and exporting it does not populate the xml file [theme].xml with the name of the theme.

We are working hard to fix all of the bugs that have been reported to hopefully get an update out early next week. This issue hasn't been reported yet, so I'd like to get a better understanding of what it is so we can get it fixed.

Please provide a detailed description of the steps to reproduce the problem and be as specific as possible so we are able to reproduce it and address it in the upcoming release. I'll send a link to this post to our QA team to reproduce and log the issue to ensure everyone is aware of it that needs to be and make sure it is addressed.

Did this help? Tips are appreciated...


I saw some difficulty in the wizard creating a green theme, so I opened the Preset Manager/ Data Bridge - Design dialogue.

I created a new theme which I called "lime". I wanted it to be "Lime" not "lime" and there was no rename option (an oversight in the extension perhaps).

I tried editing the theme to see if rename was an option there. It wasn't , but the dialogue that opened to edit the theme was not populated with the existing theme settings.

Next I tried to export the theme to see if I could make the changes to the exported theme and re-import it.

The exported zip file contains two xml files. The xml file for the theme is populated with all of the theme settings except the theme name. I am updating ecart right now, so I can't give it to you exactly, but it was something like:

<wa_preset type="object" name="<!-- No Defined Style -->">

or something similar where it should have been:

<wa_preset type="object" name="lime">

I changed that line and the file name to "Lime"

<wa_preset type="object" name="Lime">

and re-imported to get it right.
