Also, a friend did the same thing, except when she imported her library items they won't update the pages correctly. It shows an error and the path to the library is all messed up. And on one of the items, the imported lbi file recreated an entire page of code within the lbi file!!! This has happened before and REALLY F*#!@% EVERYTHING UP.
Any comments or help as to why this happens. Also, I found that the Library folder is separate from the site folder and if I hadn't found that by accident, I would never have known where to find the library items. I assumed (silly me) that they are contained within the site document, but they are not, as is evident by the fact that they don't transfer with the site to the new computer.
To me it seems logical that there are no snippets or library items contained in the programme itself, when first installed on a new machine, but I also would have thought that as soon as you open the project file of your website, they should be included.
Easy if you know where they are stored but can be a problem if you do not.
You have to work out what you added after initial install.
I now always back these details up as you will now.

Lately when I insert a Library file into my html it total goes berserk and I get all kinds of repeated code that I already had in the page. For example, I made a change to footer library file and when I inserted it into the page I was working on, the header and several lines of text showed up three times in a row in my code. The Library files have become a total mess. What's up? I've reinstalled Editor and still doing it. I know what I'm doing so it's not me...this become a recent problem. Anyone else having trouble with inserting the Library files?
Please don't tell me to open a ticket.
When doing Library>Update Library Items>Update Project Pages
then: sometimes it works as it should
but: sometimes not only the code from the .tbi file is inserted, but also other code from other files, seemingly randomly. I then have to remove it manually from all pages - a tedious work ...
Does anyone have a solution?
We will be happy to investigate! Can you please open a support ticket within your account. With you ticket can you please zip up one or more of the library files that are doing this and send them to us?
It would actually be very good if you could test this and then report back.
1. Yes, so far I used the Update Library function only with the library preview window open. I shall try to close it and will report in this thread what happened. (it may take a few days)
2. I noticed that when the library problem occurs, then unwanted fragments of code from open pages (like index.html) were copied into the library code. Does this info help?
3. I shall be pleased to try out the announced new build. If it solves the problem, then there would be no need to get a support ticket, right?
Mind you, I'm not a CoffeeCup staff member, I'm just a user as yourself, although I've been here for something like a generation... I'm not able to predict any release date of the new version. But if you post your results here, I'll post what I'm able to pick up
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
