Exporting files on Android

Post by Guero »

I am really enjoying SDRangel on android and use it on both an android tablet and on an android phone. The problem comes when I try to export device presets using the "export current preset to file" button. It does not matter where I try to send the file, whether local in the device, to external storage (SD card), or to a cloud storage (e.g. google drive)-- each time I get the following error message:

"Cannot open file for writing"

What do you suppose the issue might be? This also happens when trying to export configurations using "export current configuration to file"

Thank you all for the wonderful forum and the great SDRangel tool!

Android requires special file handling and this part of the program may not support it yet. I'll have to take a look.

Thanks very much! Yes, I realize that Android is a bit of a special beast.
