all Presets broken after coming back to Fabric

edited March 23 in Canvas Graphs and Presets

Hello,

I have been away from Fabric for about a year and i am starting to work on it again.
First thing i noticed is that all of my Canvas presets are broken. When I dig inside the graphs and sub graphs, it seems like some nodes have been disconnected, and also not showing their proper name. In this case, everything was replaced by these "ARGB" nodes.

Could i get any help on this ? Thank you

    Hi @mjcg

    Would you mind to send me here or privately the graph you are trying to load?. It looks like there is a preset conflict since those ARGB presets don't make sense in that context.

    Hi @borja ,

    I sent you a message with one of the graphs, thank you for taking a look into this.

    I took a look at the scene and couldn't make it load properly in 2.0 2.1 2.2 2.3 nor 2.4. In all the versions the ARGB node were still there. In which version did you create the scene?

    Hi Borja, thank you for your time. I can not tell you exactly which version it was, all i can tell you is that it was a "pablo" daily build from April 2016. so something between 2.1 and 2.2.

    additionally, i noticed that I get the same type of error on other Presets that has been shared by the Fabric Community (e.g RockGenerator, Roy Nieterau's DeltaMush etc.)

    Are there any errors in the shell when Fabric is starting up regarding GUIDs? If so can you post them here please?

    After doing some research on the forum, I successfully corrected the files by using canvasGUIDFixup.exe
    Thank you for your help.

    Yes, the internal canvasGUIDFixup tool is used to fix these type of issues. I didn't think this was the case for this sample because the file was not working on previous versions. Maybe you saved it in the broken stage and thus it was not working anymore? :)

    Hi Borja,
    As i said, all the files were last modified in ~April 2016. I did not try to re-save them when i saw they were all broken.
    I'm really glad these tools were here to fix my issues :)

    Hi Eric,
    You are correct, there are errors related to GUID when I start fabric :

    When i try to load on of the broken presets inside canvas, i get these kind of errors in the Canvas log window.
