Potential bug when submitting new sets?

Recommended Posts

I am fairly new to Rebrickable and have just started tinkering with adding missing B-model sets for Creator 3-in-1 sets and Mixels Max/Mix sets. When I submit a new set and it is "pending", the default for adding parts changes from adding to one of my parts lists to adding to the "Custom List" of the set I am adding. This is great and helpful except that I'm finding when I make a mistake and, say, add 3 instead of 2 of a given part, I am unable to accurately correct/edit the the list from the pending set. If I add a part in error, I cannot delete it unless I use the Bulk Edit feature. If I want to change quantity, it seems to have no effect. As a result, I have been generating set inventories to my parts lists and then submitting sets once complete. This runs the risk of someone else working on the same list as I am. This only happened to me once so far (i.e., I created B-model lists that were already awaiting approval since I couldn't "Submit set" until my own inventory was done from my parts lists). I'm not sure if that makes sense or not but I thought I'd post to find out if this is a bug or if I'm not using the features properly.

Sorry, I can't reproduce this. Could you please provide step-by-step instructions for making it happen?

Okay, when editing a regular part list, the dialog box includes "Delete Part" such that you can remove a part completely. When submitting a set, parts are automatically added to the "pending set". On the inventory page for submitting a set, there is no "delete part" option in the dialog box. This is not really a problem since you can use the Bulk Edit feature to delete a part from a set about to be submitted. The problem is when you try to correct the quantity of a given part. Say the inventory for a pending set includes 10 of a certain piece. I then accidentally add 2 more. Going to the pending set inventory and refreshing will now show 12 of that piece. I subtract the 2 added in error and then refresh the pending set inventory. It will now show 22 (i.e., it adds 10 instead of correcting the quantity to 10). The only way I can think to fix it is to delete the part entirely and add back the correct quantity. Hope that makes more sense?
