I often work in mammoth multi-slide projects and then break them into more reasonable chunks later on, deleting extra slides and saving with a differnt file name. In Captivate 4.0 this automatically updated the Project Title in the Publish Dialog. In 5.5 it retains the old name, even after saving or publishing it. This can lead to over-writing the original project.
In recent days I've discovered a truly bizzare workaround, completely by accident. A colleague was doing some QC and saved slides with completely new names. Although the Project Title wrongly retained the original file name, when I changed it to publish the slide, and then immediately used "Save As..." to save it with the same file name as the Project Title I just published, it finally retained the new name---in other words the Project Title I just published was still there after I closed then opened the file. If I Save As... before publishing it displays the frustrating broken behaviour, and when I tried it on some other files I had renamed it didn't work either... it seems as if the magic is available only on the first Save As... after renaming.
Anyone else seen this? Any better workaround? Can we expect a fix? When?
yes i've seen that before. I had a prototype of a project and as it progressed beyond a prototype I started saving and publishing with a new name. But when I publish now it retains the name I used for the prototype, even tho I've published it several times with the new name. Always defaults back to the first name I used. You're not alone in your frustration.
I'll try to test it a little tomorrow to see if your workaround works for me.
I am having the same problem. This happened in Cap 4 upgrade too and then they came out with a patch fix. Given this problem has been ongoing since early January, is there a fix or patch yet? Can't tell you how frustrating this is.
This problem doesn't usually happen with projects that were initiated in Captivate 5.5, only with projects upgraded from earlier versions.
Are you saying yours is happening with native Cp 5.5 projects now?
