[Critical bug][UX broken] Can't edit nodes

Describe the problem/error/question


The UX is broken in all workflow, all nodes.

When I open a node then I can’t go back to the workflow to save my changes.

What is the error message (if any)?

No error message

Please share your workflow

(Select the nodes on your canvas and use the keyboard shortcuts CMD+C/CTRL+C and CMD+V/CTRL+V to copy and paste the workflow.)

Information on your n8n setup

  • n8n version: beta-ai
  • Database (default: SQLite):
  • n8n EXECUTIONS_PROCESS setting (default: own, main):
  • Running n8n via (Docker, npm, n8n cloud, desktop app): Web
  • Operating system:

Hey Kevin, thanks for being in touch and apologies for this. What version are you using - may it be 1.17.0? We had a bug in the beta version for a short time that prevented users from closing the node details view. Updating to 1.17.1 should fix this.

Thanks! I could indeed fix by restarting the instance with the following advice from email Support:

In short you’d have to head over to n8n.cloud, change any of the settings, then hit Save changes for n8n to restart and fetch the latest ai-beta image. After the restart, you should again be able to close the node details screen.

Hope that can help if others are in this situation!
