Xojo 2013 R1 "Gotchas" / Known Issues

Things that new users should know - please feel free to add to this thread with your own issues: if you think the issue is big, serious, and new (don’t just post old bug reports here).

Data Loss Bugs

  • VCP/Text format projects will mark a folder tree as obsolete if you Tab into the folder Name field in the Inspector, even if you don’t change it <https://xojo.com/issue/26939> This can be very hard to un-do once it happens. Workaround: copious backups, don’t touch the Folder name in the IDE inspector.
  • Binary project saves on Windows 8 may not be reliable? (I’ve not seen this myself, this is second hand).



  • Debugger : shows up on multiple Tabs, but only functional on the first tab. <https://xojo.com/issue/26909>
  • If you hit the Delete key, or Edit/Cut, or Rename the debugger item in the Navigator, the debugger is killed and the IDE will crash later.
