Studio not persisting changes to component properties

Since upgrading Studio to version 6.7.3, and continuing to version 6.7.5, I’ve had consistent problems with Studio not persisting changes I make to a component’s properties. This problem most notably appears when making changes to the margin and style properties. I’ve found that I can make around 2 to 3 edits before any further changes are discarded.

My present workaround, which is to make only 2 edits – click ok to exit the layout and then return, is largely inefficient and driving me crazy.
To be more specific as to the symptoms of the problem – take a button group for example.
Start with three buttons – create, edit and delete.
I click on the first button, find the style property and set the style to ‘small’. I repeat the same process for each of the two remaining buttons.

In most cases, if I change focus to another component and then back to each of the three buttons I find the style is only set on the first two buttons and not the third button. The only way I found to set the style is to exit the layout (click ‘ok’, ‘apply’ does not work), returning and then re-keying the style. I thought perhaps it was my browser or one of the installed extensions – running latest Chrome on macOS 10.13.1. So I did a clean install of the latest version of Firefox with no extensions and had the same results. There are no visible errors or other indicating factors of a problem.
One additional note, for those components with a margin property the problem is evident when the component canvas does not react to the margin changes. I discovered recently if I check to enable margins then uncheck and then check again the margins seem to magically work. Any help resolving this problem is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for reporting the problem. We have created a YouTrack issue

Awesome. In the meantime this could be an opportunity to become more proficient doing my layouts directly in XML. Thanks for the quick response.

Just a FYI. As I continue to use the designer I’m finding more and more properties with the same symptom – so definitely not limited to only the style property. My list now includes icon, caption and margins.
