I am noticing a few issues with SharePoint Designer 2013 and I am wondering if I am doing something wrong and if there are any fixes.
I am working on Publishing Site Page Layout. I try to save a file and it tells me that there is another more recent file on the server. So I close the file (lose changes), refresh with the green 'refresh icon' at the top and then open the file again. The file has a green check mark next to it even though it says 'checked in' under the 'File Information'... I check it out.
I make the same changes to the file. I click save. Again I get the popup telling me that there is a more recent version on the server. I decide to overwrite now and click Yes. The popup does not go away. I click yes again... since this doesnt seem to do anything I click Cancel. Now it starts communicating with the server and gives me the ability to save the file with a different name. I enter a new name and now it says that if I save it the new copy will not be a Page Layout... (wtf?)
I cancel, and close the file again. I open the file... and it appears the changes I made when I clicked saved above have actually been saved.
What the flying flashgordon is going on?
I am also seeing icons indicating customization of masterpage files that have been reverted to the site definition, and Page Layout title field that does not update when I change it via the Properties in SPD or through the 'MasterPages and page layouts' page in the web application.
Are these bugs with SPD or is there something I'm missing?
