ACT!v17Pro / Adding or Editing Activity Types is Broken

[ Edited ]

Act! Pro Version 17.2.217.0, Hot Fix 3   on a windows 7 professional pc dell 64bit 2.66 gig cpu 8 gig ram.
ACT!v17Pro /Schedule /Manage /Activity Types = not able to add icon images to Activity Types

 

When I click Browse Button and select desired icon file type, it never appears and remains a paper clip image.

Reference screen shot image below.

The icon images that were successful, were created by actv16 pro.

 

Is this a known problem?  If not, can we make it known and fix it?  

It was working on v16...  Smiley Happy

Hi Bill,

We are aware of this issue. It's been logged as Defect D-03899.
The issue also exists in v18 currently, however it is a low priority for the dev team.

Thank you for the defect acknowledgement. So it was a low priority for me until I needed that feature again, now it is a higher priority.

What sort of time frame are we looking at for this defect to be resolved?  I need it for Product Development.

I cannot accept this defect acknowledgement as a solution, but I will accept a solution. Thank you Smiley Happy

I'm afraid I don't have a resolution timeframe for this defect.
I will however, make the Product Management team aware that you have a usage case in which you need this functionality.

Hi Bill,

 

This defect currently carries a 'Medium' priority, and is targeted to be resolved in Act! v19.

 

If you have any further supporting details I can add to the defect (around how it impacts you), please feel free to post this here or contact me privately and I'd be happy to add this. I have already updated the defect making reference to this post.

I realize most users may never use this feature but as you can see from the screen shot images in this post, I need it for product development.  Or thought I did.
