IDE 2.0.0 beta 3 Soon forgets the selected USB port

I have downloaded and are using the new IDE. Works OK.

  1. I am unable to create a new post on the specific forum for the this beta. I do not get the new button to allow me to post but I can use this part of the forum.
  2. When using the new IDE it does not remember which usb port I have selected. It reverts to the first listed usb port after using other menu tab items. I choose 14601 but it reverts to 14301 shortly(?) after using other menu tabs.

COMMON ISSUES

  • Ensure you have FULLY inserted the USB cables.
  • Check you have a COMMON GROUND where required. ( Thanks @Perry)
  • Where possible use USB 2.0 ports or a USB 2.0 POWERED HUB to rule out USB 3.0 issues.
  • Try other computers where possible.
  • Try other USB leads where possible.
  • You may not have the correct driver installed. CH340/341 or CP2102 or FT232 VCP Drivers - FTDI
  • There may be a problem with the board check or remove your wiring first.
  • Remove any items connected to pins 0 and 1.

COMPUTER RELATED

  • Close any other serial programs before opening the IDE.
  • Ensure you turn off any additional security / antivirus just to test.
  • There may be a problem with the PC try RESTARTING it.
  • You may be selecting the wrong COM port.
  • Avoid cloud/network based installations where possible OR ensure your Network/Cloud software is RUNNING.

  • Preferably install IDE’s as ADMINISTRATOR or your OS equivalent

ARDUINO SPECIFIC BOARDS

  • CH340/341 based clones do not report useful information to the “get board info” button.
  • NANO (Old Types) some require you to use the OLD BOOTLOADER option.
  • NANO (ALL Types) See the specific sections lower in the forum.
  • NANO (NEW Types) Install your board CORE’s.
  • Unless using EXTERNAL PROGRAMMERS please leave the IDE selection at default “AVRISP mkII”.
  • Boards using a MICRO usb connector need a cable that is both DATA and CHARGE. Many are CHARGE ONLY.

CREATE editor install locations.

  • On macOs ~/Applications/ArduinoCreateAgent-1.1/ArduinoCreateAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/config.ini
  • On Linux ~/ArduinoCreateAgent-1.1/config.ini
  • On Windows C:\Users[your user]\AppData\Roaming\ArduinoCreateAgent-1.1

Hi @mackarduino. Thanks for your report. I was able to reproduce this bug when using the same Arduino IDE 2.0.0-beta.3 version as you were. However, with the latest release (2.0.0-beta.12), I can not reproduce it. I didn't manage to identify a specific change made by the developers

If you give it another try with the latest release of Arduino IDE 2.x, please let us know whether the bug still occurs for you. Thanks!
