Stoplight Next Loses Local File


(Kmeister) #1

We’re having an issue with stoplight next losing local file mode when you navigate between a design or scenario mode.Here is a video of the issue.

We’ve experienced this for several months and need to restart the tool frequently. Is this a known bug, or is there a fix we can do for it? – Thanks!

Hey @kmeister! Thanks for the report.

I wasn’t able to view the video because it is behind a login. I think it is a known issue because we are going to be working on making local file mode better in the future.

Let me check in with the team to make sure there’s nothing you can do as a workaround until then.

Thanks Taylor, this video should work:

Hey @kmeister, looks like a similar issue being tracked here: https://github.com/stoplightio/desktop/issues/105

I’ll talk with the team after the release next week to see when this will be fixed.

Making sure to save and doing cmd+R is probably the best workaround for now.

I wanted to follow up with the GitHub thread for anyone who might be interested:

TL;DR We will be working to have a more robust desktop app that has better local file system support.
