Looking at my saved project locally and the configuration is completely different

When opening my project on the LMS everything is correct, but now I open it again in my computer (locally) and the configuration of text and color is completely different.

I need to make some updates on my saved project, but the colors and text format is different, as well as the background layout of some slides.

Hi Jeunesse, 

I took a look at your .story file (thanks for uploading it!) and saw the same as you - that slides 1.13 and 1.14 were missing the background and the fonts/style didn't match your images. Although when viewing them in story view you could see the background image.

That behavior typically means there was an element of corruption introduced into the file. I know you mentioned working locally and that's a good first check! There are a few other known causes here about the file name/path but it could also be an issue with something like the background image itself. 

One thing to try is importing the file into a new .story file to see it the corruption is resolved. 

Let me know if you need anything else - I'm here to help!

Thanks for your reply. Appreciate it. It turns out, I was NOT working locally =(. I was working on a J drive which is shared with the whole company and that corrupted the file.

Ok. Lesson learned. I'll save my work in the C drive, and then copy it to  the J drive. Also, I'll save it using Capital Letters, as said in the post by Nicole (whose articles I love). Fortunately, it's an easy fix and not all the files were corrupted, only this one and another one I'm working on at the moment.

Thank you again!

I love this e-learning heroes community.
