I forgot to mention....
If you do update to 6.1.5 or 6.1.6 any of your exising workflows that use custom file paths in the Watermark node will continue to work. You just can't edit them!
The issue has been logged with Xerox support and they are investigating.
Further info for anyone experiencing this this issue:
-The problem only seems to be with verions 6.1.5 and 6.1.6 of Core, if you are on an earlier version and use file paths in the watermark node do not update just yet.
-Any custom file path entered for an image or PDF asset in watermark node is afected. If you need to use a file that is within the Core 'sandbox' that works as it should. The only issue is when trying to use file outside the sandbox EG C:\Folder\File.jpg or E:\Folder\file.pdf
I see the problem and have written a BUG. You can contact Xerox support to further push fixing the problem. Thanks for the heads up.
Within the Watermark node i set as follows:
type = Image
image file = D:\Dropbox\Xerox\Images\65EW301-1.jpg
I then apply and save
When i go back into the watermark node the image file path is blank
I have tried Chrome, Chrome in Incognito, Edge and Firefox. Everytime the issue is the same.
I have used Core for 3 yaes and never had this issue since updating last week to v6.1.5
