|0001760||FreeCAD||Bug||public||2014-09-20 21:21||2014-12-29 23:59|
|Platform||x86_64||OS||Kubuntu(Linux)||OS Version||14.04 LTS|
|Summary||0001760: FC fails to load a *.FCStd file if the filename lacks the *.FCStd file extension|
|Description||FC allows you to save a part with a filename lacking the file extension, which is typical *nix behavior. However, when you then try to open the file next time, FC silently fails to open it.|
After a quick `mv' command to append the file extension to the filename, FC will then load the file as expected.
1. Don't rely on the file extension when opening a file, or
2. Do not permit a file to be saved without the proper file extension.
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Open FC, load part workbench|
2. Create a simple, properly-constrained, closed sketch.
3. Extrude a solid from the sketch.
4. Save file as `riser.test'
5. Close FC, then reopen FC
6. Open `riser.test'; it will silently fail.
7. Rename `riser.test' to `riser.test.FCStd'
8. Open `riser.test.FCStd'; it will open as expected.
|Additional Information||Test case attached.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
One example would be that we could not open our own backup files FCStd1 ...
> 1. Don't rely on the file extension when opening a file
That would means to rely on mimetypes and magic files. This would be a huge redesign.
And there are differnt mechanisms to open files form the GUI, or by passing the name as an argument (or from python)
> 2. Do not permit a file to be saved without the proper file extension.
That should be limited to the GUI.
||I also don't know how if/how far not relying on the extension is possible on windows...|
