The post icon editor, introduced in Helix RADE 6.2b13, introduced a number of serious bugs. Specific bugs addressed in this release are listed below.
- R7724: Post icons are no longer silently detached from views in macOS RADE
Helix RADE 6.2b13 (5821) has a logic error that causes posts to be considered invalid and silently detaches them from views, causing posts to ‘fail’ unexpectedly. This bug is fixed, but collections opened with Helix RADE 6.2b13 may have had their posting setups modified. A script on our AppleScripts page writes a report of post setups in a collection, to help you identify potential changes. Contact technical support if you need further assistance.
- R7749: The post setup dialog now flags illegal combination of source/target links via highlighting.
- R7756: Defining post icon triplets no longer requires minor maintenance that could lead to a crash.
- R7779: Posts created in macOS RADE now work as expected.
Posts created in prior versions of macOS RADE were incorrectly identifying the target relation, causing new records to be created when existing ones should have been updated. Any post created in Helix RADE 6.2 prior to build 5828 must be rebuilt to correct this error.
To fix a defective post icon: open the ‘Post configuration’ dialog, switch the Source Link and Target Link to “-- none --”, then click OK and click Commit All. Now reopen the dialog and respecify the correct Source and Target links. Click OK and click Commit All: the post should now work as expected.
