This is a problem with something in my system interacting with Tinderbox 8.2.2, I suspect. Trying to get to the bottom of it, I am posting here in the hopes that this knowledgeable and wise community might have some suggestions.
The problem: In Map view, when I try to link Note A to Note B via the Text Link parking place, Note B is destroyed. See video clip. The note vanishes, and only its name remains on the map, with no body. It does not turn up in a Search any more. It’s gone. The same thing happens in Outline view.
I sent this to Eastgate, confident I had found a bug, but Mark B cannot reproduce it. Therefore it is something about my System, I guess. But what could it be?
The problem has persisted after (a) restarting Tinderbox, (b) restarting the computer, © trying on a different, older computer (which has much the same configuration to the one I use daily) (d) upgrading from Mojave to Catalina on one of the computers and (e) restarting that computer in Safe Mode. Thinking that it might have to do with Dropbox (where I save most Tbox documents), I tried the same maneuver with a doc saved locally to my hard drive. Same result.
Is this associated with the update to 8.2.2? I don’t know. I haven’t had a problem before, but I was hardly using links (I usually use attributes and note locations to organize). So I can’t say for sure.
I’d really like to figure out what it is about my OS that is causing this. All thoughts and suggestions welcome!
Details: 2018 Macbook Air running OS 10.14.6 and then running 10.15.2; 2012 Macbook Pro running 10.14.6. Both machines running Tinderbox 8.2.2 build 241
