Pictures not saved

Hi guys, want to report an issue on saving images, linked to a waypoint: when taking new pics it quickly looses the link to the new pic:

Locus Classic 3.61.0, OnePlus 6T

I have taken a zillion pics to waypoints in recent years using Locus classic. And now recently I find out that some of my pics are gone, oops. I look at the WP and no more pics, or few are gone.

So I want to update an existing waypoint, while on survey for OSM, by adding pics taken on the spot. Yesterday I got to a location and took 3 pics: select the WP, edit it, '+', add a pic and take the picture. It is shown in the listing of the WP. I leave the WP and select it again: pic is gone! In one occasion, I had to repeat 3 times before Locus persisted the pic. Shaky behaviour that, to my opinion as heavy user, was introduced recently.

I went in to my phone and checked on that 3 attempts: the pics are actually present in the Locus dir, files/Locus/data/media/photo. So somehow the DB update is dropped meanwhile.

I now am forced to repeatedly recheck while using Locus in the field: clumsy. Tnx for attending!

To add: I am suspecting this issue occurs when 'editing' an existing WP (rename the WP, different dir and add pics), and not so much when creating a new WP and adding a few pics at the same time.

So to repeat, what exactly do I do: I am an OSM Mapper, and use Locus for that purpose: I have enormous amount of WP's, stored in different directories and some represent 'action points': I want to visit the location and update the WP there: I 'edit' the WP: I move it to another dir, sometime update the WP name, and sometimes add a few pics of that spot. And that adding of a pic, via Locus, recently started failing on me sometimes. Just checked that locus 'photo 'dir and I see some 3000 pics made in past years. Did not have this problem before. Tnx!

Typo in original post (I cannot edit any more): phone is a OnePlus 8T (and not an old 6T). It runs Android 11.

Hello,

we finally managed to simulate the problem.

I passed this to the main developer, so I will inform you if the problem will be solved.

Regards.

Pls allow me to ask when the fix is released: I am using Locus Pro as daily driver, but using the app is now having risk of loosing data: yesterday I lost several important pics, while not checking. Tnx.

Hello,

we're working on that right now.

These days there should be an update in which we introduce some new features and then in the next "patch version" it should be fixed.

Regards,


Zdenek, Locus team
