Disappearing notes with Linked Text

Using Tinderbox 8.2.2 ion Catalina f I create 2 notes and try to make a text link the from Note 1 to Note 2, then Note 2 is deleted. Is this a generic problem or should I re-install Tinderbox?

I’ve met the same issues. This is a new bug that exists only in version 8.2.2. You can either try reverting back to the last version (8.2.1) and wait for the next release or ask Mr. Bernstein yourself for a new test build. I’ve acquired a test build from Mr.Bernstein via personal email support and I’m afraid I can’t redistribute it here.

Good luck!

Thanks I will revert back to 2.1

No. I’ve made thousands of text notes, and none have been deleted.

FWIW I have found that reverting to 8.2.1 does eliminate this problem for me. Moreover it seems 8.2.1 has no problems working with a doc created in (or modified by) 8.2.2.

Thanks David,
Yes it seems to be 8.2.2 (b421)specific - I’m on Catalina (10.15.2)
I can now see that this has been fixed in future versions, as ever Bernstein’s on top of it.
Thanks for your follow up
