@maxi_mus , the new FET-6.18.0 is compiled with Qt 6.6.2 (out 15 February 2024) by Darren, so you might want to try, maybe the bug is solved.

I didn't try 6.3.4 on the M2, just the most current version.

After a longer talk with Cyrus Ireri, I think that it is not a FET bug, but his computer disk corruption.

Dear Ariadni,

Thank you for your posts. But I don't recommend you to put publicly here your email address. Maybe, if you want to keep it here, scramble it a bit (like write AT instead of @). This is to protect you from bots/spam.

Yes I agree with that, but our school unfortunately refuses to deal with it... Thanks anyway, I will try to learn more about the options of timetable with software.

Quote from: Anna ari on February 24, 2024, 06:51:30 PMThanks for the consideration! In our school we firstly schedule the musical instruments' timetable,and general lessons follow. There are many parameters, of which the most difficult is that each class is ordered alphabetically and not by musical instrument, e.g. in A1 there may be four violins, no clarinet and three percussions. The only solution that I have figured so far is to "break" classes with multiple ways, such as second language, musical theory etc, but manually

For the same year, the students groups should be split in such a way that for every elective musical instrument the students are distributed evenly into their respective groups. So, the first criterion should be the elective musical instrument, and the second criterion the alphabetical order of the students.
For example: If the 1st year of the Gymnasium has 15 students whose the elective instrument is guitar and the year should be split into students groups, each group should have 5 of these students. The first 5 students (according to their alphabetical order) should be "placed" in the A1 group, the second ones in A2, and the 3rd ones in A3.
The law is very clear. It provides the school with two alternatives. The 1st alternative is to follow the alphabetical order criterion. Most of the time, the realization of this 1st alternative makes the musical instruments timetable really difficult, or even impossible. The 2nd alternative (according to the law) is to split the students accordingly to their elective instrument (in the above described way). Of course, in order to make the timetable possible, the 2nd alternative is much more flexible.

Please try to restart your computer, then immediately, without opening FET, send the files by email.

Quote from: Anna ari on February 24, 2024, 02:10:58 PMIt's more complicated I think, since sometimes there is one student per teacher and sometimes two or more students of the same class. I appreciate your advice

Officially, only one student per teacher (and per hour) can be assigned. The second, third, etc student (generally speaking: students in smaller or larger groups) is a "convention" of the school, in order to find a solution for the real problem (the lack of sufficient number of teachers). However, FET can handle the problem with more students per teacher and per hour. You just need to add all the students that form each group.
Since you are the musical instrument lessons timetabler: You can add a "Year" (not a real one!) with the name "Instruments" and then add in this "Year" each one of the students as a group (not as a subgroup).
For example:
GA1_Eleftheriadis
GA1_Marinidou
.....
GA2_Alatas
GA2_Georgiadis
....
LA1_Ioannidis
LA1_Vasileiadis
etc
(G: stands for Gymnasium, L: stands for Lyceum).
Then you can add the activities. This is the crucial point! You should add for each one of the activities a tag which corresponds to the respective students group of each one of the students. Then, you can constrain the activities of the students of GA1 (for example) by adding the constraint: a set of activities occupies max time slots from selection, and set "max time slots = 4" for each students group of the Gymnasium, "max time slots = 2" for the 1st class of the Lyceum, and "max time slots = 1" for the 2nd and 3rd class of the Lyceum. Be careful! In the tab "Time slots" you should select the respective hours (time slots) that each one of the students groups is available for the musical instrument lessons. Then you can add the other constraints, and generate your timetable.
