Presenter 360: Saving the file does not always save both .pptx and .ppta files
I'm not sure if this has been reported or not; if so, I could not find it.
I am working in Presenter 360, using a file that another author had built in an older version of Presenter (don't know which one).
Everything seemed to be working fine for the first week or so of edits, but now I am finding that when I save the PowerPoint presentation changes, Presenter 360's *.ppta file is NOT updated. At first, I thought maybe that wasn't a big deal, because I figured that the .ppta file supplemented the PowerPoint file. But now I have found that entire sections I had added to the PowerPoint file AND SAVED in PowerPoint, plus a lot of miscellaneous changes I had made and saved in PowerPoint, have all disappeared.
I know you can create a package for sharing the files with someone else, and I tried doing that. It saved what I was seeing in PowerPoint before the files got out of sync, but it did not have my latest PowerPoint additions and changes.
1. If I am only working on a file on my C: drive (and saving/publishing to it, etc.), do I still need to create a package every time I want to save updates?
2. I thought that doing a regular Save was adequate. Shouldn't the articulate Presenter .ppta file get saved as well, whenever I update and save the underlying PowerPoint file? That isn't happening.
3. If I save and close a file, and want to re-open and edit it, does it matter which file I open? I've been opening the PowerPoint .pptx file and changing/saving it, but that does not seem to be working.
Background info, fyi: All files are being worked on and saved to my local C: drive. I have experienced the problem when working in PowerPoint and just previewing changes, before even attempting to publish.
