    Default Template not Resizing in Preview

    First time I've created a template - cool feature! When I add the template (Holdman/Bethlehem Star) to my primary preview it attaches fine. However, when I try to resize it only the spokes resize the rest of the star does not. I'm attaching pics of the template by itself, after added to primary preview, and after starting the resize. There are 3 different strings on the star and lights going every which way, so I used a single line for each spoke and multi-lines/strings for each point of the outline and a single multi-line/string for the inner star.

    Did I do something wrong or is this a bug? Thought I would ask before creating a bug ticket.

    Oh, if you drag the template larger, like out of the preview window, then Vixen completely closes.

    It's funny you ask. Another user just had a similar problem earlier today. There appears to be a bug related to templates. I think Derek is looking into it already.

    Thanks Jon! Guess I get to redraw the star again (only the 3rd or 4th time now :-) ) but the template looked so pretty vs my free hand drawing of it!

    Derek, by chance is it "fixed" in build 56? I'm still using the release 46 build but don't have an issue with going to the beta build.

    Actually... I just checked. It worked fine using the most recent code base. I believe we are hours or perhaps a couple days from releasing a bug fix update that will solve this issue.

    You guys rock! Just downloaded and works perfectly. I truly do appreciate all of the time and effort that the development team has put into Vixen. This is our 7th year using Vixen exclusively.

    As the "other user", (sounds sleezy, doesn't it ), Thanks for looking into it.
    How do I get this "latest version" so that I continue?

    Here is the link, but keep in mind it's a development build and may have other bugs too
    http://www.vixenlights.com/builds/

    Glad it's worked out for both of us!

    I'm surprised Jon hasn't chimed in yet, he's usually the first to warn people about the development releases (for good reason!!)

    WARNING. The /builds/ are beta code and meant for testing. BACKUP OFTEN while using them if you care about your data. Now, they are usually pretty stable, and the one there should be more stable than the 3.1 release because it includes a lot of bug fixes, but... you never know.

    And, you are welcome. I've done a little part of Vixen and others have done much more. We do it because we love it and, at least for me, it is somewhat of an addiction similar to CLAP.
