LaminationPro not saving all settings to file

    I have noticed that when you configure settings in the Southwest view such as Strip Width, Center Strip, Strips, and Export region size that these settings are not saved to the .lam file. Thus upon exit and reload of this saved file these 4 settings are not reloaded. This should be an easy software fix to include those settings. If not maybe I could help add this feature.

    I would suggest you send Lloyd a PM, email or give him a call to discuss this.

    What I noticed is I can save a SW design, open another LP file , then go back an open the SW design and the settings are correct. It is when I save a SW design, exit LP (that is close the program), reload LP and open the SW file that the design setting are not correct.

    Looks like it would be a good update.

    I assumed Lloyd would be monitoring these forums?

    He does. Yet he does travel some. My suggestion was to make sure he receives the suggestion.

    I do monitor the forum but I’ve been over my head with projects lately and haven’t had enough free time to do monitor it as I should. I also wrote the forum and am on the board of Segmented Woodturner and I don’t monitor that site like I should either. :-(

    You’re right, Lamination PRO has some fields that were added later that doesn’t store some information. It’s on a pretty long list of things that need to be done but which I haven’t gotten to yet.

    This is something I will move to the top of the list, though, as it really should be there.

    Thanks for reminding me and I’ll let you know when it is done. Hopefully I can get to it this week.

    Thanks Lloyd.
    Hope I didn't over step in suggestion they email you. I know your very busy. Just trying to figure out the best way to bring things to your attention.

    Besides that is what you have Bob and me for to help monitor the site. lol

    I had offered to help somehow in the coding/testing of this software as a volunteer. I did look at the format the of LAM file and see that it is XML. I once wrote a nice C# module that would serialize (save to disk) and deserialize (load from disk) all salient properties of the application in XML format. Basically you just define a collection of attributes and it creates the XML for you.

    Thanks, Mike and suggesting someone email me or call me is always a good answer.

    The current (latest) version of LP does not address saving the suggested data fields in the OP. Lloyd is aware of the suggestion. Not sure when an update to LP will be coming out.

    I have finished the part that saves the missing information but there is a much larger part of the code I’m working on that isn’t complete and until it is, I can’t make a new release. I’m leaving for Alaska next week and so I won’t be able to get back to it for a couple weeks. That information hasn’t been saved for the past 15 years, though. :->

    Wow, enjoy that trip Lloyd! My wife has been talking about a cruise to Alaska. Watch out for the bears!

    Enjoy Alaska, Lloyd. Thanks for the update on LP.

    Been to Alaska 3 times. 2 was working on wildfires and 1 for a Fire and Aviation Program Review. I did get to take the train from Anchorage to Fairbanks. Beautiful scenery. Though the mosquitos can be a bit much at times. lol

    Alaska is one of two states I haven’t been to. This is hard for me to understand because living in Portland, Oregon makes the flight short and at $300 round trip, very inexpensive. We’ll spend most of our time on the Kenai Peninsula and it should be a lot of fun. With temperatures near 90 degrees, it’s going to feel more like we’re heading south.

    Now I just need to find a good reason to visit Arkansas. :->

    I grew up in Arkansas, pretty place. Look at Hot Springs, Blanchard Springs Cavern, any place in North Arkansas would be nice.
