Announcing the new Datavyu v1.3.6 with enhanced features and transcription support!

Hi everyone,

I'm having issues saving in Datavyu on my windows machine. If I don't have any videos added to the controller, the .opf file will save. However if the videos are attached, they will now. I go to Save As, type in my file name, click Save, and it exits the dialogue box but the project title doesn't change and there is no new file generated.

I was able to do this with ease in OpenShapa and pick up exactly where I left off with my coding. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Thanks,

-Adam

Hm, I don't think we've encountered this yet. What version of Windows are you using? I can try to replicate the error and see what might be going on.

I'm using windows 7 on the desktop I'm referring to.

I just checked on my lab desktop and I'm having the same issue running windows XP. As long as I have a video loaded in the data controller, I can't save my .opf file.

I just confirmed that I don't have the same problem. But, I do have a thought. When you save as, the file name never changes. But it does create a new file with the new name for me. I noticed though that the save as dialogue box reverts to whatever the last file location was - not where the last place you saved or opened from was. So once you've added a video, if you go to save as, it will default to saving to the folder it got the video from - not the location you got the .opf from. This may sound silly, but if your videos are in a different folder from your spreadsheets, have you looked for the new files there? It would explain why having added the video makes a difference.

If that's not the issue, can you email us one of your files so we can take a look? Our email addresses are in our profiles.
