Seeing another post reminded me to test some more and follow up:
I cannot render designs from my HOME consistently–well, very rarely, and one image I tried to open “YOUR tray art” but what rendered on the screen was NOT that artwork, but images of SVG files and jpegs from a project a few weeks ago (and have used a lot of other files since then).
This first image is the home screen, and arrow pointer is under the file “YOUR tray art” I had opened–jpeg file. (I returned to the home screen to get this shot after it happened)
And this is the artwork that was rendered on my GFUI, jpeg & svgs that were “ignore” last time I used this set up–which was inviduals copy & pasted, not a single file.
So I deleted all these images (as I had weeks ago after my project was finished), and when went back to HOME and took the pic of the screen to show the file I had intended to open, I did open that file again, and this time, nothing was on my GFUI after rendering.
And I tried many other files from my Home, simple svg shapes and some jpegs–a few I just did yesterday, and some older. None appeared in the GFUI or in the menu bar after the “rendering” popup closed.
I also tried to open some designs from the Catalog, and none of them appeared after the “rendering” phase, too.
So chicken or egg? Not sure if this could be caused by the fact that in the last year I usually just ‘upload’ my files, even if it was something I used before (even if they were stored in my HOME), or I just always Upload because rendering has been erratic at best & most files don’t appear saved in my Home screen, anyway.
