I just installed the latest version of Blueprints with ExpressionEngine 2.5.2. It’s all working well with the javascript fixes, but I’m having some issue with File fields. Every time I reload the publish layout via Blueprints any file field gets populated with a null file (as seen on the screenshot). This doesn’t necessarily stop the site from working but it just won’t do. Whenever a user wants to publish an entry and changes the layout.. he/she would have to manually remove those null files. This can be considered a pretty annoying bug for them since they don’t know what’s going on.

Let me know what I can do to help you out fix this bug. Thank you for your time!

Hi Carlo, my guess is the file field doesn’t work well with the autosave feature, which would be an EE bug :/

I’ll try to replicate and debug it some time this week though.
