Description Matthias Welwarsky 2013-01-26 21:50:49 UTC
When assigning a workflow to a queue, only the tools and their order are restored. The tool parameters are not restored.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a tool chain in BQM, save it as workflow
2. Remove the tool chain
3. Assign the workflow to the current queue
Actual Results:  
The tools are restored and assigned to the queue. The tool parameters are not restored

Expected Results:  
Tools are restored in save order and with the correct parameters

Using 3.0.0 version, I can confirm that no parameter is saved, and the defaults that appear after a "somewhat-restoration" don't allow a valid treatment:
 - dimension: size is 10pixels
 - watermark: the filename is set to "true"
 - JPEG quality is 1

Marie Noelle,

As you use current implementation from git/master, you can test my last commit where i fixed a stupid cast when Workflow value are loaded from XML settings file.

Workflow are saved in your home directory at this place :


You can open this file with a simple text editor and look if settings parameter is saved properly for all tool from your workflow. The structure of this XML is not complicated to understand.

Note : it's possible that previous data saved in this file before this fix are corrupted. Check before. If you have a doubt, purge it and recreate your workflow settings.

Here is an excerpt of the file :

            <parameter type="bool" value="true" name="Use background"/>
            <parameter type="bool" value="true" name="Use image"/>
            <parameter type="QString" value="/home/marie-noelle/Documents/Photographe-Auteur/Visuels/2013/logo/logo-V2-filigrane500.png" name="Watermark image"/>
            <parameter type="int" value="15" name="Watermark size"/>
            <parameter type="int" value="1" name="X margin"/>
            <parameter type="int" value="1" name="Y margin"/>
            <toolname value="Convert2JPEG"/>
            <toolgroup value="8"/>
            <index value="3"/>
            <version value="1"/>
            <parameter type="int" value="90" name="Quality"/>
            <parameter type="int" value="0" name="SubSampling"/>

I don't understand every parameter, but my watermark filename is right, JPEG conversion quality is '90' as it should be, resize seems to be '1024' as it put it; but when I choose 'assign workflow to the current queue' I don't get these values!

Are you sure to have done a "git pull" in digiKam and recompiled/installed it ?

When updating source code, you must have something like this :

[gilles@localhost core]$ pwd
[gilles@localhost core]$ git pull
remote: Counting objects: 90, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (44/44), done.
remote: Total 44 (delta 39), reused 0 (delta 0)
Unpacking objects: 100% (44/44), done.

Marie Noelle or Mathias,

I cannot reproduce bug now since my last commit in git/master. Can you confirm ?

Comment 7 Matthias Welwarsky 2013-03-22 12:21:02 UTC
for me your commit fixes the bug.
thanks a lot
Comment 8 caulier.gilles 2013-03-22 12:31:47 UTC
Thanks Mathias

Comment 9 Matthias Welwarsky 2013-04-22 16:26:25 UTC
I did further checking and found that some tools are not properly restored:
- ICC convert does not restore the color profile properly: If you look carefully, you see that at first the correct profile is restored, but a split-second later it changes back to the default. Something appears to overwrite the restored value
- Convert2JPEG does not restore the chroma subsampling setting

Reopen or create new bug?

Hi Matthias,

Please create a new entry. I will fix it before 3.2.0
