The new file saving framework has a disadvantage to me. I can’t overwrite existing routes any more by exporting the actual route. Even if the name is the same as an existing file, it doesn’t ask for overwriting, it just saves it as another file. I do like the previous way by asking to overwrite the existing file more
Android’s storage access framework seems to allow overwritting existing content.
Checking the relevant Android issue, they mention that:
“It’s not exactly intuitive, the user must click one of the existing files, the name is reflected on the prompt, and pressing “SAVE” will ask something like "Overwrite <filename>?/Cancel/OK".
If the user types a name that matches one of the existing files, a new copy will be created instead of overwrite.”
That’s expected since the route files must have a valid extension.
(".kurviger" is a valid extension, while “.kurviger (N)” is not)
When exporting files the sorting of the folder is always by name. I always have to resort descending by date to find the right tour file to mark and overwrite. This is not kept for the next export. If necessary please make a setting for the file explorer to force sorting descending by date.
I don’t succeed any more to overwirte an existing file even if I mark this before. Always a new file is created with extenctions (1), (2), (3)… own export function in previous Kurviger version was much better, don’t like this new framework.
But I can open the same files from Kurviger via Routing / import.
I tried to to open a Kurviger file out of file manager(German name: “Dateimanager”, supplied with Android 7 on my Asus ZenPad 3s 10 (z500m) ) - that opens a 2nd instance of Kurviger, icon from file manager, with strange behaviour of the “original” instance up to system crash, examples:
File managers should return the proper file content according to Android guidelines.
Total Commander on older Android may need permission (works on newer Android).
You can use Google Files app, which should work with any location (even SD card).
