My Changes Are Not Saving to Database

Common reason for this is you are running your database from a network location or from a “Cloud Synced” folder such as iCloud, Dropbox or GDrive.

It is HIGHLY recommended to not directly access your database file from a network or cloud synced location. Cloud sync folders can “lock” the database file and in cases where the db is quite large (over 100MB) it can take some time to upload the changes which results in no actions being able to be performed on the database.

Similar when accessing a db file over a network, the large number of read/write requests over a network can sometimes cause data corruption or a completely corrupt database. SQLite databases are designed for local use only, if you need server access to a database (or a centrally accessible solution) consider the BaseHead Server option.
