Project Corruption When Applying Status to Multiple Topics

Unread post by Olivier Beltrami » Fri Mar 20, 2020 1:06 pm

Hi,

If you select multiple topics that are currently being edited, and change their status, for example from "under construction" to "Complete" as in the image below, then the contents of one of the topics gets copied into the other and you end up with messed-up topics and one of the topics contents, at least, is lost.

To reproduce:

Create a new project with 3 topics, as shown in the image below, edit all 3 and do not save, then select the 3 topics and change their status. Afterwards, look at the contents of all 3 topics..

Very best regards,

Olivier
