Project Thumbnails being ignored (since 1.4.7?)

currently we use 1.46 on our machines. I test-installed 1.49 now on another machine and uploaded one of our projects, which is always a zip file with gcodes and one png which is used as thumbnail for the project. With 1.46 the image was automatically used as a thumbnail/preview image, but with 1.49 it does not anymore but uses one of the gcode previews.

We use the image as a quick overview for the project, so for us this is super inconvenient. Is this behaviour intended?


  • Preview becomes the first file analysed that has an associated image. Since 1.4.7 gcodes render images as well so that can in deed happen. You still can mark the image as preview, but preview selection was always first with image. Only thing that helped you was that gcodes did not get preview before 1.4.7.

    If you export projects as .rsproj it should keep the preview, but I guess the zip you talk about is self made. Also if preview image gets deleted the search order is 3d file, gcode image and then first image.

    Yup. I solved it for now by simply having the thumbnails filename starting with 00_.... so that is is always the first file within the zip. Looks like this will work.
