Why I hate bugs...


I hate the little devils >:)

But, believe it or not, I love bug reports :-O They let me kill the little devils. :-h

Killed 4 of them today. 

Each dead bug is a step closer to Nirvana.

    Why does it take time for fix some bugs :(

    Nobody tells me!
    Poorly described, often with no project or screenshot.
    Project submitted has nothing to do with  bug :(
    More than one bug submitted in a single report.
    Project submitted is over complex and I cannot find the problem.
    I'm in the middle of a large change to DEX so I cannot easily upload a fix.

    How to get a bug fixed quickly: :)

    • Use the Bug reporter.
    • Don't just post a report on the Forum and hope I spot it.
    • Add a project.
    • Add a screenshot.
    • Simplify the project by deleting things that don't affect the bug. e.g. if it's a pad, delete all other footprints and tracks.
    • Only submit 1 bug per report. I won't complain if you submit 10 reports for 10 bugs. That way I can fix 1 at a time.
    Thanks

    Putting things into perspective

    Yes, DEX is not perfect.

    On 3rd. January, 2020:
    DEX has 888,306 lines of code in 3,233 files. (Excludes 3rd party code and UI/resource files)

    What about adding WMV attachments to the bug report. I recently had a bug that seemed easier to understand with a video. I did make a bug report but used your problem report email to reply with a video. I don't know if this was a help but it would have been quicker to attach the video to the bug report.

    I ( like to use bug reporter)  but sometimes hard to upload because uploading time 5-10 minute and sometimes I don't get back feedback. Other problem : sometimes I don't  know is it  a bug or I can't to use DEX, then I use forum. Other problem is the language problem , because not simple search right words in my language.

    You can't attach a video to an email. Too big. Use some free screen recorder with free upload and attach a link.

    Try using Google Translate. Far from perfect but may help.

  • Umm...

    Google goes from 'may help' to 'can help'. Seems a bit biased to me >:)
