Button action changes to Export

Hi there,

Something bizarre has started happening and I am hoping for some advice.

I have an application that is tied to source control (SVN) and for some reason the working copy button xml files get updated so that the action is no longer set a variable but Export. This doesnt just happen to one button, it happens to all buttons.

I can see the files in the repository are correct and the only thing that changed is that a server reload was done on this working copy. Using the same server to perform a server reload of a different working copy of the same application doesnt yield this issue so I dont think the issue is related to the server but possibly the QV desktop itself.

Does anyone have experience with this or know how to resolve?

I have exactly the same problem as you.

We use GIT for control versions for project files of qlik documents.

I create new blank qlik document from project folder and I think that it does not import the triggers that were used in the buttons and the default action is defined (Export to).
