Save as xml hangs up

Hi All,

I try to save my project as XML file in order allow my colleagues to open it with Microsoft Project. However I experience an issue that was already described earlier on this community, e.g. in the North American User Community. http://www.projectlibre.org/discussion/issue-project-xml-export

"the application "saving" progress bar appears and stalls at around 80% complete. A file is built, but only has a few KB of content."

It was said to be resolved in version 1.5.1 but I still faced the issue in 1.5.1 and now again in 1.5.5

I run ProjectLibre on Windows Vista, which I run under Parallels Desktop 8 on a Mac with Mountain Lion.

Any feedback is highly appreciated. Thanks

Christoph

Are there any updates on this issue? Because we are currently in the middle of a big Project and we needed the XML file in ProjectLibre. Can we know the estimated time on when will this be fixed? Thanks a lot!

I too have continually had this problem using 1.5.5 (and previous) on Linux.

I my case the problem only occurs when trying to save a project which has a saved baseline. Remove the baseline and it saves okay - this is a very frustrating bug!

@Backwoodsman:

That's the trick!
I deleted the Baseline (as I don't really need it) and saved it as XML without any problems. 
I still have to try out if my colleague will be able to import the XML file into MS Project. But at least saving works now.

That's great. Thanks a ton!

Thanks for the community assistance in resolving issues.... we are in the midst of rewriting ProjectLibre.  We will fix this issue in the future!   

Thanks,
