Hi Brad,

Thank you so much. Yes, the .xosm file and the associated .data folder, preferably compressed as a zip file to prevent corruption. Or, if the project is bundled, the .pxiproject bundle, also compressed for the same reason.


Hi Juan,

DropBox

Same link, two new entries. 1) Compressed project data 2) another video showing another behavior. When I was testing and I clicked the real time preview I went to do some other things on the Mac. When I clicked on another app, taking focus away from PI, the real time preview instantly displayed. The video shows this as an example.

Let me know if you have any issues with the data - it's quite large.

Hi Brad,

Thank you for uploading this project. It has helped me to reproduce and understand the problem. This is a complex bug reproducible on all platforms. I am working on it right now, so it will be fixed in the next update. Thank you for your patience and sorry for the trouble.

Just a follow up on this. This bug is now fixed in version 1.8.8 of PixInsight, which I'll release very soon. As an added benefit, the real-time preview window is now faster and more responsive to tool parameter changes. There are other planned improvements to this interface that I'm considering to implement also in the new version, not that I have opened this 'can of worms' :)

Thank you again for your help and support.
