    will get fixed in next update. For a temp fix, create a file in the appfolder called select_mask.dat and have at least one line in that. Sorry.

    Because @Olve1954 and me probably used this feature before and so that file was created and filled with masks. You seem to not have used this on this VPS before, so no content was loaded and I didn't check if that dialog was free editable and aborted the dialog since nothing could be chosen (even though you could still have edited it freely). Hope this makes some sense to you ;)


  • I'm using v10.17 and seems to be working perfectly for me.

    Try editing the following file,


    and see if it solves your problem...

    I am also on V10.17, i have verified it is not working on several of my VPS's and home pc.

    I prefer not to edit GSA ser system files

    working also for me. What project name you have and what do you think should match as mask?

    I have used this function allot over the past 2 years so i know how to use it.
    On the moment when i click on Select By \ Mask === nothing happens. Normally it will show a input field for me to type in a mask or select from recent masks. But now nothing happens. when clicking on mask.

    Same on all my vps and also home pc

    I can make a screencast to show
  • SvenSven
    can you maybe offer access to that system?
  • royalmiceroyalmice WEBSITE: ---> | SKYPE:---> asiavirtualsolutions

    Sven i have sent you a PM with access to one of my VPS's, i have 1st upgraded to 10.18 to see if it solve it, but no luck

    Thank you, no problem i will wait for the update with the fix, it is not urgent.
    I am just curious why did it work for you and Olve1954  but not on any of my vps's or home pc or some of my clients vps's.

    Thanks for taking the time to explain.

    Thats weird, because i have use the Mask feature maybe 100's of times over the past year on all my VPS's
    Because i have so many Projects running, i normally use Mask: Tier 1 to select and edit all tier 1 projects and then same for other tiers..

    I recentely  migrated projects to different vps's using either the project back up feature or just by zipping the project folder. I also exported the GSA Ser settings.

    Maybe this select_mask.dat did not migrate. But still it should have given me a input field to specify a mask.


    Anyways no big deal, not the end of the world, i can wait for the fix, no rush
