Does "Save As New Snapshot" still work in the Edit Method pop-up dialog?

I've been attempting to update a workflow in FC stewart/SamtoFastq (simple picard conversion from bam to fastq files) but the "Save As New Snapshot" doesn't appear to do anything. As a clueless FC user I've done things like clean out my chrome cache, logged in and out of FC and chrome, as well as validating the new wdl using wdltool-0.14.jar (it validated) but "Save As New Snapshot" persistently does nothing.

Is there something else I'm forgetting to do?

    There was a bug with this which we discovered and fixed around 10am EST this morning. Are you still seeing this issue?

    Hmm. "Save As New Snapshot" still does nothing. I logged out/in of FC and tried again w/o success. Is there a way to make sure I'm getting the latest version?

    I will ask the devs to see if there is any way to make sure you're updated. I would have thought that logging out and back in would fix it.

    Just to double check, what permission level do you have with the method? If it is Reader, that may be the reason you can't edit.

    Out of frustration I tried making a new method with a different name that does the same thing as SamtoFastq. After pasting in the required fields of the "Create New Method" dialog, the "Upload" behaves much the same way as the "Save As New Snapshot" button does - nothing happens.

    Yes, this does sound exactly like the bug we hit this morning. Our on-call developer would like to take a look. Could you share the method with her by setting [email protected] as an owner?

    [email protected] is now an owner of stewart/SamtoFastq . A few minutes ago I tried doing this in Safari rather than Chrome and the "Save As New Snapshot" button worked ok. Is there something wrong with Chrome Version 61.0.3163.100 (Official Build) (64-bit) ?
