Add Report button grayed out

Scott Anderson-3
Hello:

I have a bunch of reports that load when I launch gnucash.  I'm trying to save them as custom
reports so I can close them, then run them again through the Reports->Custom pulldown menu.
However, the "Add Report" button is always grayed out (inactive) and obviously clicking does
nothing.

I tried renaming the report (even though they are all uniquely named in the first place), but
still the button does not become active.  Is there more to it?  Also, I don't see any pulldown
menu action to take either.  I think it is easier when every icon has a pulldown action associated
with it.

Scott

You have to rename the report to something unique before it will ungrey
the button.  then you have the actually apply the change to the name.

Re: Add Report button grayed out

Derek:

I think I found a bug.  If I right-click in the report window, the Rename page option is
displayed.  If I change the name using this approach, the 'Add Report' button does not become
active.

Second,  I had some custom reports saved in the saved-reports-1.8 file.  Now that I have updated
to 2.0.1, and saved some custom reports, the saved custom reports are in saved-reports-2.0.  But
if I have both the saved-reports-1.8 and saved-reports-2.0 exist at the same time, then gnucash
crashes during startup.  By merging the two files into one (either 1.8 or 2.0 version), the crash
goes away.

Re: Add Report button grayed out

Derek Atkins
That certainly sounds like a bug.  Can you report this via Bugzilla, please?
Actually, can you report both of them (separately, please)?

Thanks!
