Hi,

It looks like there is a bug when you try to export a list as XML - specifically if you include the 'watched' field as one of the ones to export. If that is selected the program crashes (gracefully enough to leave the dmp/xml files if those would help). I think selecting this field used to export both the True/False for <Watched> and also the personal rating into <Rated> - the personal rating was my reason for exporting this field, IIRC.

Let me know if any more info would help,

Thanks,

Coollector didn't crash when I made the test on my computer.

Please send me your coollection file so I can try with it.

My email is: hector at coollector dot com

File sent - it didn't crash with a smaller set of movies to export (e.g. exporting the 'Watched' list), but only with the full list.

What do you mean "the full list"? Export won't work if there's no filter at all... Which filters did you use?

Hi Hector,

Sorry, I've been slightly unclear :D

The crash occurs when I export to XML with the only list filter being 'Owned' (i.e after I press the 'Owned' button at the top, so the list is of all owned movies). I don't get the crash when, for example,I export to XML with the list filter being 'Watched' - still a long list but much smaller than 'Owned'

Then in the dialog box after i click 'Export this list', I have several options selected - Original Title, IMDB popularity + rating, Predicted, Loaned, Tags, Genres, Location, Languages/Sound - and also 'Watched'. I only get the crash when I have 'Watched' selected in this dialog box (it gets as far as asking me if I want to overwrite the existing file, since I am saving to the same filename, then crashes after a couple of seconds).If I have all the others (Original title etc') selected, but not Watched, then the export to XML happens fine.

That's exactly what I had tried, hence no crash :sorry:

I could reproduce the bug, thank you very much for reporting it!

Your coollection file is very very slightly corrupted...

Your rating of "Big Trouble in Little China" has a theorically impossible value that makes the app crash. I don't know how this corruption has happened, but because this movie is among the oldests in your coollection, we can probably assume that it's a very old bug that has long been fixed.

Thankfully your coollection is very easy to repair. Simply give a rating to "Big Trouble in Little China" and the bug will be gone (you can cancel your rating if you haven't actually seen it).

Thanks Hector, that has fixed it!

(in fact, as soon as i had typed 'Big Trouble in' into the search, the app crashed immediately (with the 'unable to save changes' error - then reopened with the film selected, and no rating set...)

I've had the same error too, I thought it was just me, but it appears to be a consequence of the corruption.

Glad it's fixed!
