Fixed Width File Reader clears column configuration

Good morning. This issue was reported in 2022 on v 4.4. I am in v 4.7.2. and the same issue occurs. I set up the column widths in the original file. I get the same log files daily so I have to repeat the process. When I copy the Fixed Width File Reader to a new node and change the file to the new day’s file it clears my prior settings.


Hello @ayscueb,

I have used this node a lot in one project and there is option Preserve user settings for new location. It worked for me.

regarding bug you are mentioning think it was solved with AP-18911 in v4.6.
You have changelog here: KNIME Analytics Platform Installation Guide



Ivan, this worked. Thank you!
