What I want to do or know

I am trying to calibrate my first CFL spectrum taken with the public labs smartphone spectrometer. The save fails with a permanent spinning wheel on the save button and a "Tag you've applied couldn't be saved" warning. See the attached screenshot and link to the spectra.

Background story

I am using a MacOS Sierra v10.12 and Google Chrome Version 54.0.2840.98 (64-bit). The same issue occurs if I use Safari.

I would be really grateful for some help on what I am doing wrong.

Thanks in advance

Hi, this looks like a bug -- I've opened a new bug report here: https://github.com/publiclab/spectral-workbench/issues/386

I saw an error while forking it, and -- I think it's related to the issue you're seeing.

It's odd - i think there's another bug causing this, but although I saw the same error message as you when I calibrated the fork I made, when I reloaded that page, it had in fact saved:


For the time being you can use that as a calibration source!

Same happend to me and when reloaded, both messages (the need of calibration and the "Tag you've applied couldn't be saved") dissapeared and looks like It's saved https://spectralworkbench.org/spectrums/92562

I've the same problem as described above by Paul. Running in Firefox browser and unable to calibrate a spectrograph.

Regards, and thanks in advance, Javi.
