Title: Can't Edit Custom Emoticons, Can Only Delete
Post by: ChaiHai on April 25, 2013, 04:18:22 am
I can add custom emoticons just fine and use them, but whenever I try to change the text triggers I can't. I have to delete them entirely and re-add them, which is annoying. Help? Also, toggling case sensitivity isn't working. Thank-you for your time.

Sounds like a bug but I know this works perfectly. What version are you using? Are you getting any error when you try to rename the trigger? How isn't aMSN letting you change the trigger text? Is it disabled?

I don't know what version, I downloaded it two days ago because I refuse to be force fed skype. I'm assuming I have the most recent version.  I don't get an error, the ok button refuses to click, I can only click cancel or delete.  I don't know what you mean by it being disabled. I can type and try to change the trigger, but it refuses to save.

Ok, let's try something. Open main aMSN window and hit Ctrl+S. A status log window should open.
Open a chat window and then right-click on the emoticon you want to rename. The edit-emoticon window should appear. Don't close it. Go to the status log window and hit "Clear". Then go to the edit-emoticon window and click on save. Check what showed on the status log window.

Also, please do that while not speaking with anyone or the status log window will be flooded with a lot of information and it will make the process harder.

You fail to realize I :: can't:: click on ok on the edit emoticon window. It.refuses.to.click. I can only cancel or delete. Therefore I can't follow your instructions because I can't save the emoticon.

Here I have something in the Status window when I add a new emoticon :

[17:47:23] save_config: saving config for user michel@xxxxx.net in D:/Documents and Settings/michel.xxxx/My Documents/Michel/A classer/programmes/aMSN/scripts/amsn_config/michel_xxxxxx_net]
[17:47:23] save_config: saving config_file. Opening of file returned : file23f62d8
[17:47:23] save_config: Config saved

But nothing when I rename the trigger.

Michel

I can't think of any reason why that button would show as disabled. try deleting amsn's folder (in C:\Documents and Settings\Your user\) and launch amsn again.  (Maybe instead of deleting the folder just rename it or backup it before deleting).
