NEED HELP! Links Changing after File Saved.

I have programmed T1000's, 2000's and now been programming my 3000 for a while. All of this usually trouble free, but now I seem to have something either very stupid on my part, or very strange going on.

I have a PFC for my 3000 that I have been working on and am seeing links change from to point to something else after I save and reload my PCF file. I had recently started programming the 3000 on a new machine and setup a fresh install there and every else seemed fine. However, I noticed that the links were changing between file saves. If I save the file and keep working, the one in memory is fine. However, if I reload the newly saved one from disk, all of the links now point to other actions. I just downloaded and installed the latest NG Edit and firmware updates but they didn't help.

Has anyone seen this? It is occurring 100% of the time, so I know it must be something I have done, but can't tell what that is.

Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Things like this have happened in the past because certain items were removed from the System Page. I don't anyone identificed exactly what caused it.

I suggest that you upgrade to the new version of PENG released last week in case this problem has been fixed.

If it still happens, restore your system page. To do this create a new empty PCF then merge your PCF into it. You then get the standard System Page.

I had this problem with both the TSU3000 and TSU7000 using earlier versions of the firmware and editors for each. I would save a file with the editor and find after saving that a large number of buttons had action lists for other buttons on them.

It was happening so frequently for a time there that I not only continued to make sure I saved my pcf file using a new file name each time, but I also did not spend too much time working in the editor without saving and confirming as to not lose my work and have to start all over again.

Those days are long gone several firmware/editor upgrades later. I concur with Peter. Make certain you are running the latest firmware and using the latest editor for starters. A change / removal of something on your system page can certainly screw things up as well. I don't even use the system page. I still have to leave the battery icon there or my pcf won't save properly. I have not tried removing it since I started using the most recent editor however. I figure it is best to leave well enough alone.
