Author Topic: New materials not appearing in collection  (Read 216 times)

The first material I create shows up as it should, but new materials aren't appearing in the collection when I select "Save current material as..." both from the file menu, shortcut (ctrl+shift+s) and the layers panel. The JSON file gets created with the right name, in "C:\Users\[myNameHere]\AppData\Roaming\Allegorithmic\Substance Alchemist\createdMaterials", but the new material doesn't show up in the collection. It was working fine in the trial, now that I bought a subscription, it doesn't show up.

Here's what I've tried:
- uninstalling and reinstalling Alchemist 2019.1.4
- creating a new collection
- creating a new project
- creating a new material
- restarting computer
- emptying the "createdMaterials" folder referenced above (new materials still populate there)
- googling it

I've spent hours troubleshooting this and It crashes on me often.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong or what how I should try to fix this? 
(FYI - I'm on Windows 10 64bit, Ryzen 9 3900X, 128GB of ram, x2 2080ti)


When you hit Ctrl+Shift+S a second time? Did you modify the material compared to the first time?
