There are a number of situations in which Read fails to open a pdf file - when it resumes from a USB stick, or when it tries to view a shared file, for example. All of these have been reported in trac. However, in addition to that, the close button stops working in these situations.

Marco, Eben,

should we close the activity even if some error happens during the saving to the journal?

Of course, no error should happen and closing it as if nothing had occurred could hide some serious problem. But also not closing the activity creates an additional problem to the user.

What's the best option here? Close anyway or not?

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

As writing to the DS is now asynchronous, the window of the activity is closed when the user presses the close button and the process will die when the write call finishes.
