I have a support case for this already, but thought I’d see if anyone else has noticed this issue?
Since upgrading from 8.1.3 to 8.1.4-rc1 (b2021031812), I’ve been noticing that my Designer is crashing periodically, maybe 2-6 times a day when working on Perspective Views.
It seems to unfold like this:
- I’m creating / modifying Views for hours, switching applications every so often (e.g. to notepad++ / file explorer etc.)
- Then go to open a new View or even just work on existing open View after switching applications back to Designer and the View just shows a blank light-grey page (same as when you first open a View prior to the “loading…” text showing up). The View never loads. I try to open another View and it doesn’t change page. I can still click on things in the project browser and tag browser, but aside from selecting the item, I can’t do much else. Finally an error pops up. Either this one
more commonly this one:
Message: (the message area was blank) Details: TimeoutException Ignition v8.1.4-rc1 (b2021031812) Java: Azul Systems, Inc. 11.0.9
or this one:
IllegalStateException: Failed to receive the response. caused by IllegalStateException: The connection has been closed. Ignition v8.1.4-rc1 (b2021031812) Java: Azul Systems, Inc. 11.0.9
Saving doesn’t work either to save changes to unsaved Views. The only thing I can really do is File → Open, and re-open the project without saving changes. This appears to work most of the time.
