Hey everyone, I hope you have all had a fantastic summer. I know things have been a little quiet over the last few months, but rest assured there is lots happening behind the scenes with Blocs.
Exciting times ahead! But for now, here is the third beta for Blocs V4.5.3. This release fixes a range of issues including a nasty issue with MacOS Ventura that causes Blocs to crash when selecting colours.
Hard Refresh Your Web Browser (to Bypass Your Cache)
There are also keyboard shortcuts to perform the equivalent hard refresh. Because there are multiple ways to do the same action, they will be listed below:
Chrome, Firefox, or Edge for Windows: Press Ctrl+F5 (If that doesn’t work, try Shift+F5 or Ctrl+Shift+R).
Chrome or Firefox for Mac: Press Shift+Command+R.
Safari for Mac: There is no simple keyboard shortcut to force a hard refresh. Instead, press Command+Option+E to empty the cache, then hold down Shift and click Reload in the toolbar.
Safari for iPhone and iPad: There is no shortcut to force a cache refresh. You’ll have to dig into settings to erase your browser’s cache.
After you perform the hard refresh, you should see the web page go blank, and the reloading process will take longer than usual. That’s because the browser is redownloading all of the data and images on the site.
Noticed that when adding blocs to a page, the bloc-x id is not being added automatically & I think the app is looking for that. When I added an id & tried again, did NOT get the crash. Also, seems this crash is intermittent, so best guess is something gets set once app & project have been running a bit.
Also: Still noticing brics in container tag are not being shown in layer navigator or edit window - really need to get this patched as well.
Just got off a screenshare w/ a client and png files in resources folder of custom bric are not being exported to the img folder - I believe he was on Blocs v4.5.2 & macOSVentura - unfortunately another showstopping bug.
