Hi,

I have to say I have tested many mind-map and concept map tools and VUE is my favorite! Keep up the good work.

However, I have found a strange bug. I cannot perform any operations from the file menu (save as, open etc). When I click on that menu (BTW, it doesn't respond to alt + F as most applications) and click on save as, no popup screen with a file browser appears. Same for open.

I just lost a beautiful map (my first) due to this.

Any idea why this happens?
Thanks

Hi Jose:
Thanks for the encouragement!

We're sorry to hear about the problem you're experiencing. We need some more information before we can suggest a solution.

Tell us your operating system (Windows, Mac, Linux?) and tell us the version/build number of VUE that you use. You can find the version/build number in the "Help / About" dialog.

Regards,

Hi Peter,
I'm testing under Win XP SP 2, vue 1.6.4.
I have tested the same jar file on a clean Win XP SP 2 install and it works fine, so it may be some other program that I have installed interfering with VUE. The first suspect was fileBox (a faster way to get to files). I disabled that, but the problem remains.

I have also tested the vue beta at sourceforge, but same thing.

Thanks!

Hi Jose:
VUE 1.6.4 was a nightly build. It it is created automatically when the sources change and undergoes no testing.

On the other hand, the version on on the VUE site and on Sourceforge is a stable release that was tested.

If you would tell me which version of Java you're using (we recommend Java 1.5.x), I can test your combination and see if I can reproduce the problem you report.

I can say that after looking at the Filebox Extender utility, I wouldn't be surprised if it might contribute to the problem. VUE pushes Java pretty hard to achieve its UI.

Regards,
Peter
