Topic: Can't edit sketch file! (Read 3001 times) previous topic - next topic



Total noob here with UNO and Macbook Pro.

I open the BLINK sketch, upload it, led blinks... Life is good.

Now, when I try to edit the file .. Nothing happens on screen.
I can move the cursor around with the mouse and the keyboard but again, I can't make any modifications.

I have done a 'save as..' to my desktop to make sure it's not write protected. No change.
I have done 'verify disk permissions'. No change (but do get some errors on java... hmmmm)
I have created a blank sketch... Same symptoms

Here's something interesting when using 'comment/uncomment'. I get the following java errors:

Might this be the source of the problem?

Suggestions anyone?




Are you the only user account on that MacBook, or are there other users?


I know it sounds too simple but try closing the arduino software and restarting it.
Sometimes strange bugs occur that can be resolved by restarting the software.
BTW I sent you a personal message.
Avoid throwing electronics out as you or someone else might need them for parts or use.
Solid state rectifiers are the only REAL rectifiers.
Resistors for LEDS!


I'm the only user on the system and have admin rights.

Stopping/starting or... reinstalling for that matter.. does not help either.
