Turn OFF Track Changes. NO TRACKING please

Postby rgrace on Thu Mar 14, 2019 11:04 am

I've had issues with this for awhile. Changing settings in the GUI such as Show Changes and disabling Track Changes does not turn off change tracking. Look at the HTML view and it's loaded with change codes. Then I still have to go back and Accept All. I know this must be a factor in why my system is so painfully slow using Flare (even with a Skylake i7 and 16 GB of RAM, which should be MORE than enough).

I want Change Tracking DISABLED so it does not do ANYTHING. The logic Flare has around this 'feature' is deeply flawed. When you 'turn off' Track Changes, it should be OFF. Period. Do I need to file a bug on this?

is there a Registry setting to put an end to this?

There was a question on this a couple of months ago, and the solution was not to just turn it off, but to go through the topics and accept (or reject) the changes, THEN turn off change tracking.

I wish that worked. Accepting all works, but then turning off Show Changes and then turning off Track Changes completely after that does not work. Changes still get tracked in text mode

That sounds very odd. Take a read of this help topic, and if you're certain you're doing what it says in here, then I think you'll need to talk to Tech Support.

EDIT:
I've just gone into my project, turned on tracked changes to see what it did, and tried to turn it off again - WITH A MASSIVE FAIL!!!

I'm going to report it as a bug, please do the same (see my signature for a handy link).

ANOTHER EDIT: I managed to get it to stop tracking changes by turning it off (the button was dimmed), closing the topic, opening the topic again. If the button is STILL dimmed, click it again until it is the normal black font. Definitely a bit ropey, but it did eventually stop tracking changes.

That is definitely still a bug. I think that's worth reporting. If we both do it they might pay attention.

This is a problem that was solved by others a long time ago. Can't believe this is an issue.

Logged it. Wow, even that is painfully slow. Good ol' ASP .NET. #NOTIMPRESSED
