IDE fails compilation for some sketches but not others

Compilation for some sketches immediately fail upon pressing the button, while other sketches do successfully compile. These sketches previously did compile without error.

These sketches also fail to download.

I'm thinking there may be some limitation (limit) that I have violated, or maybe this is an IDE bug that is currently being worked.

When you encounter an error you’ll see a button on the right side of the orange bar “Copy error messages”. Click that button. Paste the error in a message here USING CODE TAGS (</> button on the toolbar).

There are no error messages to copy. Only the “Compilation failed. Please report this issue on our forum” banner is displayed.

Turn on Preferences > Console: Show verbose output and then see if there's anything in the black console window after the failure.

Does the problem happen with any sketch (for example, the bare minimum sketch with just an empty setup() and loop())?

Which board do you have selected?

There is a limit to the free account of I think 100 sketches. There is also a size limit to the whole account too.

You can check that by selecting PREFERENCES then hitting the MORE INFO button.

If you could also share a link to one of the offending sketches that would be great.

I dont see you mention which browser you are using but if it is chrome then try running CREATE in an "incognito" window and see if that makes a difference.

I examined my usage, as ballscrewbob suggests. I have used 58 sketches of 100 and 3MB of 100 MB.

One of the problem sketches does compile by using the Arduino Desktop application.

But to do that, I needed to cut-and-paste from the sketch windows in the Web IDE to windows in the desktop application, since the Web IDE fails to download sketches. Instead, the Web IDE presents an "Error while downloading." banner.

I am using Apple's Safari browser.

Are you trying to get sketches INTO create or out of create ?

If it is into create simply make one into a ZIP file and post it here as an attachment.
That way we can try it ourselves and also examine it in case its something real easy.

meanwhile attaching a help file for import of sketches and libs in case there is anything in there that helps.

Let me finish writing my sketch using the desktop application. I will then try to compile it in the web IDE and if that still fails, I will post my sketch for you to examine.

In the meantime, let me leave with this observation. Several sketches once did compile and now don't even start compiling, while other sketches do compile. When compilation fails to start, there are NO messages in the black console window, only the "Compilation failed. Please report this issue on our forum" banner is displayed.

Thats still confusing...Those seven all compile fine on the desktop or all compile fine on the web ?
