Hi, I've already linked my spreadsheet and video files and have coded multiple passes. Now, I'm on a different computer and need to access my video file from a different drive. My spreadsheet is not opening, only the spinning color wheel (Mac) is showing, I think because OpenSHAPA is trying to find the linked video. How can I unlink the spreadsheet and video files so that I can open the spreadsheet? Many thanks!

This should do it. It basically just resaves all of your files, and the video won't be linked anymore. Just put them in a directory called OpenSHAPA on your desktop (the file paths may need to be fixed depending on your machine).


  filedir = File.expand_path("~/Desktop/OpenSHAPA/")
   filenames =

  for file in filenames
    if file.include?(".opf") and file[0].chr != '.'
      puts file
      $db,proj = load_db(filedir+file)
permanent link
