I created a new user in my User table (using Data Editor).
I copied and pasted the Role from another user to the new user field.
On Layout, I changed ‘Viewing as’ to the new user, but nothing is displayed for this user.
*I fixed it by typing the Role again.
I do not know if this is limited to the User table only.
I retype in Data view - directly in the table.
By “retype” I mean the following:
Let’s assume the Role value is ‘Admin’ - I then retype - using the keyboard - the value of ‘Admin’ into that field - replacing the value that is there with the same value.
This might be the copy/paste issue that @Robert_Petitto has been talking about. Something with the fact that copying an pasting introduces extra or different characters, so the Role may look correct, but it’s actually not a match.
I believe this is a bug he has reported, but it doesn’t hurt to add more reports.
@Darren_Murphy Thinking about the “text” video you shared a couple weeks ago, I wonder if it’s somehow a Unicode issue, or something along those lines. Would be curious if there was a way to decode/encode the working and non working text into Unicode to see if there is a difference.
I haven’t delved too deeply into it, but one thing I did try was copying some of the offending text and pasting it into a vim editor, then enabling :set list, which usually reveals unprintable/invisible characters. In this case it didn’t, so I didn’t look any further
oh, right - that one. I quite enjoyed that talk
I’ve since sought out a few other talks by the same speaker and watched them.
Anyway, yes - something is going on. I know that Glide have been making some changes to how data is handled which is related to the new JSON columns. Possibly also related to these changes… I don’t know.
speaking of users, i remember you could only add new users to the table through the editor.
I just added a user to my private app using the app and i even assigned an admin role for it. Is this now possible? i even signed in using the new user to confirm the account has been created.
Yes, I am also able to add a User via the UI and assign a Role. But I also have the Role retyping issue in this case. The new User can log in but I still have to retype the Role value in the Data Editor for the User to see what they need to see.
