Timelapse settings "save config" button feedback. [request] #1811
I started a print, but before the bed was up to temperature I decided that I wanted to change the timelapse parameters for this print. So I hit cancel (no harm done), and tried configuring the timelapse... Then it tells me I need to wait 20 minutes before that becomes possible.... Sigh. This should be abort-able just like a 3D print.
In any case the "save config" button never gave any feedback that anything happened.
It looks like there is some information missing from your bug report that will be needed in order to solve the problem. Read the Contribution Guidelines which will provide you with a template to fill out here so that your bug report is ready to be investigated (I promise I'll go away then too!).
If you did not intend to report a bug but wanted to request a feature or brain storm about some kind of development, please take special note of the title format to use as described in the Contribution Guidelines.
Also make sure you are at the right place - this is the bug tracker of the official version of OctoPrint, not the Raspberry Pi image OctoPi nor any unbundled third party OctoPrint plugins or unofficial versions. Make sure too that you have read through the Frequently Asked Questions and searched the existing tickets for your problem - try multiple search terms please.
I'm marking this one now as needing some more information. Please understand that if you do not provide that information within the next two weeks (until 2017-03-22 07:50 UTC) I'll close this ticket so it doesn't clutter the bug tracker. This is nothing personal, so please just be considerate and help the maintainers solve this problem quickly by following the guidelines linked above. Remember, the less time the devs have to spend running after information on tickets, the more time they have to actually solve problems and add awesome new features. Thank you!
PS: I'm just an automated script, not a human being, so don't expect any replies from me :) Your ticket is read by humans too, I'm just not one of them.
You're right, in the default white theme (I've been staring at a dark theme for the past week, that I've been working on) there isn't much of a difference between it being enabled and not, though there is a difference.
I stuck some text on the page that pops up and notifies you that there's unsaved changes ntoff@381a016
@foosel You mentioned a spinner (which I didn't do), I've been spoiled by my i7's speed which saves insatntly. Would a spinner icon stay on the screen long enough to be noticed? Even if octoprint is running on a raspberry pi, I don't imagine the save process would take that long would it?. Perhaps that might come and go so quickly that it would be missed?
edit: p.s. @rewolff you might want to edit the title and add [request] at the beginning so the git bot doesn't automatically close this, thinking it's an incomplete bug report.
How about changing the text of the "save" button to say what it does and does not do.
SAVE, use for the next print
@ntoff I've merged your commit to
I also worked a bit on properly reporting back the current default settings, but that didn't work out so far (some error in my logic). I'll have to take another look at that.
