When I move a object file, folder (at Object Repository) to another folder, I got an error Unable to move the selection : null.
After refresing the folder, the file is moved actually. But it is a bit annoying.
Also I cannot remove the copied file occationally…
Please let us know how would your work be affected if this issue has not been resolved?
I can continue my job, but my performance is lower than expected
Bump, I’m having the same issue trying both 7.4.0 and 7.5.5. Is there any known resolution or workaround? If I do rename twice, it renames the file but it does not update all references to that file so I would have to manually refactor every place that file is referenced.
In the .log file you attached, I found this message:
Caused by: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException; systemId: file:/Users/rieota/katalon-ui-test/shobodroid/Object%20Repository/admin/Office/.meta; lineNumber: 4; columnNumber: 2; The content of elements must consist of well-formed character data or markup.
This message implies that the file is there but its content text is broken. So how does it look like?
Could you share the probilematic file /Users/rieota/katalon-ui-test/shobodroid/Object%20Repository/admin/Office/.meta ?
You mentioned that you have another laptop where this problem doesn’t occur. Then why not you look at the same .meta file. How they are different?
On the machine where you have the problem, why not you try to edit the .meta file to make it identical to the one on another machine. Let’s see if the problem goes away or not.
Here’s what I found out: I had some corrupt objects in the repo (they were empty, 0kb files). Having any corrupt files under the Object Repository folder made this error occur when moving any object in the repo via the UI. I used this Windows app to quickly check for invalid XML files, (free version will give you the list in the UI of the app) then manually went and deleted them out. After deleting them all, I can drag/drop and rename other objects without errors.
Note though that when I drag/drop or rename, it is not successfully refactoring the references to these objects. This issue is likely a separate issue though so I don’t need to derail the whole thread unless there’s a quick answer to this.
Now I remember… shortly before this error occurred, the files that were supposed to be renamed and moved are back in place, and I’ve had some conflicts.
I don’t know if it was a bug or my bad git operation…
In my old laptop, I fixed the conflict of the files but not .meta file. Now there is no conflict in meta file and it seems to be ok in spite of old laptop.
