Newbie problem with Field Item and Checkbox for Done
Submitted by Gerard on Wed, 2014-07-23 05:44.
Short introduction: I am a newbie. That is to say, I have been interested in IQ for about five years, tried it quite a few times, but the learning curve was just to steep for me. Also I was too occupied with work to be able to invest a lot of time in study. All the same, I could see that it is a very powerful piece of software.
Recently, somehow, It suddenly all fell into place. I could see what it is all about. Maybe because I had been playing around with Ecco, which I did not know before, but which is so similar.
It was probably not wise, but I started to move all my current work and projects to IQ. Not wise, because though I get the basics, all the advanced stuff is a bridge too far yet. Well-known problems, as I found out in the forum, such as disappearing items because of Source and View settings, manual sorting of items, and other stuff. Things I managed to tackle more or less on my own (with the help of the forum). More or less, because it is still a mystery to me why suddenly the View or Source changes (often after a manual refresh), or why in some Grids my items do not retain their manual sorting.
That's all fine when you are learning a piece of software, but it's making me quite nervous when doing real work. The effect is that I am cautious to try out new stuff.
Long introduction, now something practical, that is really annoying:
In most grids I have the Checkbox Field for Done as a column. Love it.
Yesterday I installed the latest version of IQ: 0.9.26 pre release 29
This morning I noticed the checkbox does not work properly as it did before. When I check the box off, the content of the item disappears and is replaced with a 0 or a 1, depending on the state of the checkbox.
It is probably very simple to fix -if it is not a bug-, but I have no clue where to look for the solution. Any suggestions?
