See bug #61491 for the new issue report on 'appdata' not being saved.

The error message isn't worth fixing in my opinion as a new release of Octave which fixes this will be out in 2 months.

I'm going to open a new bug report for the second issue.

There is another item that I can pull a report.  It is also figure related and takes small effort to verify.  Thanks. 

The appdata is not saved/reloaded, while userdata is saved and reloaded. 

fid=figure; plot([0,1], [0,1]); setappdata(fid, 'a',1);
getappdata(gcf, 'a')
ans = 1

%%% manuall save the figure with default, untitled.ofig. 

close all;clear all; hgload('untitled.ofig');
getappdata(gcf, 'a')
ans = [](0x0)

I can reproduce on version 6.4, but not on the development branch.  Is it worth trying to find the cause of this when the development branch is going to be released soon as 7.1 anyways?

I put this item into community help and got flagged as "spam". No one can see the post as the result.  Therefore I am submitting w/o a second opinion.  Thanks. 

I got an error message by interactively save a same figure twice:  

(1) figure; plot([0 1], [0 1]);           % pick save from file menu and accept default.  Repeat save.
(2) Save the ofig by manually picking  save from the figure File menu and accept default.  untitled.ofig is saved.  % make change to the existing plot did not seem to affect if the error message would show or not
(3) Repeat (2).  Save by picking  save from the figure File menu.  This error message shows in the command window right after. 

>> error: print: unknown device ofig

error: called from
