Studio files not saving properly when updating a course
Apr 06, 2015
We're having a new and very strange issue with Articulate '13 (and Quizmaker and Engage) that started after update five. When we finishe a project, all files are copied to a network drive for backup. When we need to update the files, they're copied back locally. Frequently we do a 'Save As' for the original Powerpoint to change the date in the file name, this creates a new PPTA and we go from there with engages and quizzes and such.
When I tried this last week, it not only did not give me a new PPTA, but no changes were being made to the quiz and engage files. I would edit them from within the PPT but in looking at the files themselves, the date modifided dates were not changing and opening the engages and quizzes standalone was showing no changes had been made.
After some investigating, we found that the only place the changes were being saved was a temp directory in the Users - Apps Data folder. Obviously, this isn't useful. Is there anything that would account for this change? And is there any way to make it stop. I had to pull all the old engages and quizzes out of the old project and re-add them to get it to save properly. For a 30 slide presentation, that's not a big deal. For a couple hundred slides, that's more of a problem.
