PPTA File Not Saving/Updating - Studio '13
Just wanted to see if I can pick your brains. I'm working on courses in Studio 13. They're about 30-40 slides long with 6-7 captivate simulations added in as videos or simulations. I had been waiting to finish up the captivate simulations the past week and a half on course 2 of 6 but had to wait as I couldn't get into the system. Now that I'm in I went back and couldn't remember if I had synced the audio to the standard Articulate slides yet. Low and behold I did sink them but something strange happened.
Something went wrong and my PPTA file is not saving. For example, when I first opened the course this morning to check on the audio/syncing I previewed 3 slides, 1 out of every 3 (and I checked 3 different parts of the course) had the "new audio" in it whereas the other 2 (so 6/9 I chceked in preview mode) had the old audio (this is training where we're taking base line courses designed for the US and using them & updating them for another country). What's weirder - the PPTA says it wasn't saved since April of this year (which is when i would have last touched the original source course), but that's impossible as I had at least inserted the new audio on each slide (probably did sync) and that wasn't done till now .
I deleted the existing PPTA since I would have had to start over again with syncing and I've been noticing the PPTA is not saving right now. I added audio for slides 2-6 - it seemed to save, but it's been about 40 minutes now and I've inserted audio for slides 8,9,10,11,15,18, and synced 8-11 gone into the slide properties window for Articulate and changed something, and saved the damn PPTX several times over. But the PPTA still refuses to save.
Thought about and found a thread where it was recommended to "save as" with a new name. Did that - the PPTA is still from 40 minutes ago.
