It sounds like you might have copied and tried to open the published version of the files - did you copy all of the project files, or just the HTML? If you just copied over the HTML, Animate will create project files for it, which means it switches to unsaved state. That being said, opening up published files is an unsupported workflow (meaning: your mileage may vary, and we don't recommend that you do so).
Yes, I copied all the project files. Out of curiosity, I just tried it again, copying only the html and the same thing happened (it doesn't display in the browser).
How do I nullify the published status of the project, so I can work with the files again and make changes?

Have you tried doing a File > Save As to a new directory? Don't do it with your published file - do it with the project composition you first started working with in EA.
Thanks. That was the problem. I didn't realize I was working with a "published" file and that you can't edit such files.
