    Alex,

    We are starting to show duplication of tabs and rules each time we enter the configuration from whatever form we wish to edit. Each time it duplicates rules and tabs. We delete them and then it happens again. Do you know what is going on or what we can do to get this to stop?

    Hi,
    I’m not aware of this issue. I have a few questions:

    1. Is this the new BETA, or is it v4.200?
    2. Can you give me some details on browser, SharePoint version etc?
    3. Does it happen for all forms, or only some?
    4. Any errors in the developer console (hit F12 > Console)?

    Hi,
    I have confirmed this bug. It appears when you have duplicate entries for the current form in the configuration list.

    I cannot tell exactly why you end up with duplicates, but I will add a check for it in the upcoming release so it will not affect the solution if you somehow manage to get duplicates.

    If someone have a clue as to why you end up with duplicates, please let me know.

    For now, you must manually remove the duplicate entry in the configuration list by going to /Lists/SPJSDynamicFormsForSharePoint/AllItems.aspx and deleting the oldest configuration for the affected form (look at the “Modified” date).

      Alex,

      There were multiple instances of the forms just like you said in the SPJSDynamicFormsForSharePoint Library. Once those were deleted, they went away.

      This also solved a problem of the CSS not working on the form. The form would not show any css from the misc tab because of that duplicate. We found out that the problem might be when two users are editing on the same form. This seems to cause duplicate entries in the SPJSDynamicFormsForSharePoint library.

    I’m glad it worked. I have not been able to recreate the creation of two identical configurations, but if two users at the same time starts configuring a form that does not have any current configuration, you can end up with duplicates.

    If anyone have a “method” for creating duplicates, please let me know so I can prevent it.
