Wallet GUI 10.3.1
Linux Mint 18.1, 64 bit

Send and Address book tab appear to reject any payment ID I put in there. Send will only allow me to send when there is no payment ID.

EDIT: If I recall, the application is in beta. Is this something that I should merely report as a bug on github? I have not used the wallet until now.

  • Is the payment id you're attempting to use 64 characters long and composed only of hexadecimal (0-9 and a-f)?

  • 16 and 64 (and anything in between, if I try it). I'm using openssl rand -hex 8 and openssl rand -hex 32. The Payment ID boxes are inconsistent across the program. Send has 16/64. Receives says 16. Address book says 64.

The problem occurs with integrated addresses. Because it already contains a payment ID, it rejects any additional IDs by the user.

106 character integrated address (causes the Payment ID to fail).

95 character normal address (does not cause a problem with the Payment ID).
