After i go to another tab of settings panel and return back - this bug fixed.

Hey Anton! :slight_smile:

Thanks for reaching out to us! It definitely looks odd… I’ve tried to reproduce this on my end but with no luck. Can you verify that neither of your extensions is a reason behind such event? Try running browser in Incognito Mode and see if the same happens for you. You can open Incognito Mode with Command + Shift + N.

Also I wonder if there are any errors in the browser console when you encounter that problem. Your browser version might be useful here too, as it might be a browserversion-specific issue.

I’ll be awaiting your reply! :slight_smile:

Thank you for reply.
In Incognito Mode i have same problem.
Chrome version is 60.0.3112.101.

I set attribute in symbol.
And i set it in checkbox input of form.

It’s critical bug for me, because i use custom attributes in many ways!

Please, help me to solve this problem.

This seems to happen after the new canvas went live.

  1. Edited another element’s attribute.
  2. Selected next element and clicked on pencil icon to edit the attribute name/value.
  3. Dialog box with previous element’s value is shown



Even if you click the CANCEL button, the value is still stored in the dialog box and is displayed the next time you click edit again.


Furthermore, the Edit dialog box title should be “Edit Attribute” instead of “Add Attribute”.

I’m on Google Chrome Windows Version 60.0.3112.90 (Official Build) (32-bit)

Thanks @samliew for that solid repro steps and bug verification :slight_smile: I’ll look into it with the team!

Hey @1112!

We’re looking into a way of fixing this issue. Until then, you can use a small workaround.
Before selecting another node with custom attributes you want to set, make sure you DESELECT node. You can do that by pressing Esc key on your keyboard.

  1. Select node1 with custom attribute data-something="else"
  2. Edit that node’s custom attribute as you want
  3. Before selecting another node press Esc key
  4. Select node2 with custom attribute data-workaround="true"
  5. Notice how that does work :wink:

I know it’s not ideal, but until we figure out the core issue here this should let you work on your project :slight_smile:


Thank you Bart!

I found other method - after select first attribute to edit i select block witch not have any attributes.
After that when i select another block with attribute - correct value display.
