UIDescription Editor - save (as) doesn't work

I've been following the examples in the FX book and everything works as expected, except for editing PluginGUI.uidesc using the UIDescription Editor. I can edit the file with a text editor and that works fine, but if I make any change in the editor and use "Save As" - it let me select the file, it clears the "dirty" flag, but the file is not being updated - it saves the original PluginGUI.uidesc, without my changes.

Any idea how to solve this?

Hi Uzi,

If "save" as opposed to "save as" works then it likely that there are my multiple PluginGUI.uidesc files and you are not saving to the correct one.

The root folder for that file should be ALL_SDK/myprojects/"your_project_name"/project_source/resources

Make sure that you're saving to there.

Thanks for your reply.

Unfortunately it still doesn't save the changes, no matter where I save the file...
