    Cast gone

    mwh71057
      I have a student that saved her file, but when she opened it back up the score was fine, but the cast was blank. What the heck happened?

          Maybe she used an external cast and somehow didn't save it with the .dir
          file. I've noticed that when the score is open and I save the project, I
          only save the score (unless I choose "save all" or "save and compact") When
          I quit Director it asks me if I want to save the external casts. I've hit
          "no" before I learned the hard way. I thought maybe I had just accidentally
          done something to the score after I saved and figured I didn't need to save
          again.

                I'm betting it was some sort of user error.
