Views are not saved when I close database

Using Ninox locally on my iMac.   I create new views (usually Table views) or modify existing views - both in normal and editor mode.  When I close my database and come back in - the views may or may not still be there.  In other words - Ninox is not saving my changes to the views (adding new views, adding/removing fields to the views, etc.).

Is there something special I need to do in order to get Ninox to retain my view changes?

    Make sure you are in Admin mode (red wrench is active) before you make any changes.

    Yeah - I do in Admin mode - but sometimes the changes stay and sometimes do not.  I'm not sure what the 'thing' is that prompts the save.  Still occurring - cannot determine why.

    Anyone ever found a solution for this?  I cannot determine what makes the view changes stick and what does not.  I close my database, and when I reopen - some changes may be there and some not.  Whole 'new' views are gone, or changes within a view are no longer.  Then sometimes they are.  I've tried making the changes in Admin mode, or making other 'admin' changes after I create the view.  But I cannot determine why it will work sometimes.  Frustrating as I have had to recreate views over and over before they magically stick around.

    Just make sure you are in admin mode before making changes. I have not had any issues with changes not being saved while in Admin mode.

    I think it is a bad UI design that lets you do something but not save the results. I get caught up in making changes and forget admin mode and then lose my changes.

      Fred I wish that was the answer.  I've tried many times in Admin mode.  Doesn't help.  I'm on a mac and doing everything locally (not cloud) - not sure if that is where the problem is isolated to or not.

    I to use the Mac app. I'm running v3.5.14.

    I went back to test and on DBs saved to either iCloud or local I was:

    1) able to create a view in NON admin mode and it was saved when I exited the DB and re-entered

    2) able to create a view in admin mode and it was saved when I exited the DB and re-entered

    I have sometimes the same problem too. Even just the name of the view sometimes doesn't get saved. And more: sometimes formula fields don't show immediately the result, but they will after I exit the view and re-open it. I am on Mac App too and saving locally.
