Can't edit any entries using HDF Viewer


#1

Running HDF Viewer 3.1.4 on a Windows 10 machine. When I try to edit a value in a cell, nothing happens. I don’t get any error or anything.

I’ve tried a few different files, and below is a link to a h5 file I’ve tried to edit.
NEONDSTowerTemperatureData:
https://ndownloader.figshare.com/files/7024985

I’ve also tried some files in %AppData%\Local\HDF_Group\HDFView\app\samples

I can’t find any place that HDF Viewer logs to, if you know where a log is located (if it exists) please let me know.

Here’s the hdfview3.1.4 file:

By default, HDFView opens files in Read-Only.

You can control how files are opened by the “Open” menu item or you can choose to change the default mode in “User Options”
