New zip file, old story saved

I need help!!! I published a course that produced and saved a completed course in a .zip file for upload into our LMS. However, when I went to open the project again, it had saved an old version without any of the new updates to the course. When I open the .zip file, it shows all the slides and updates. I don't know what happened. Can I somehow open the project using the information from the .zip file so I don't have to recreate the project all over again?? Please help! Thank you.

Hi there Joe,

I'm sorry you're not seeing your latest updates in that file! Unfortunately there isn't a way to open a Storyline file from the published output. 

When you publish a Storyline file, the file doesn't automatically save. Do you remember if you saved the Storyline file before you closed it? Perhaps you did a 'Save As' and created a new copy of the original file?

Hi Alyssa! Thanks for following up with me. I had to step away from the project for awhile and came back to it recently. Then low and behold, when I opened up the story again, all the slide were there and my work was there! I truly do not know what happened. Our Admin Assistant looked at the course too and doesn't know how the info got back into the course. I will just chalk it up the gracious Articulate gods and count my blessings!!
