What is the NAME that you are trying to use
when saving the new presentation?
Please try using "TEST" for name..
It looks like you are trying to save name with
SPACES and non Alpha characters.
If this still fails, Try creating a NEW prezo from
a BLANK template. Simply add a text box object
and then try saving.
Let me know what you see
I tried saving as "Nov22" with no spaces or punctuation.That did not work Previously it was "Nov 15, news, RSS" and that worked fine.
I was able to save a blank presentation just now as "TEST".
So, I went back to my actual presentation and saved as "TESTT" that worked. then I was able to save as "Nov22"
On the Nov22, I was changing playlists when I got the error. I went back and undid all my changes and it still doesn't work.
This is not the first time I've experienced this. It's extremely annoying. Also, occasionally, I get a message about unsaved changes after I save the presentation and then navigate to Preview.
any light you could shed would be helpful.
Something in the "Nov22" that was changed is most likely causing
the save issue. I have seen things like this when content or
objects that are added that have something wrong with them.
As for the ask to save, any time something changes on the exisitng
presentation, you will be prompted to save. Preview is like printing regular
docs. Even though things haven't changed when you print it prompts you
If you really want to hunt down the cause of the save issue for
the "Nov22" document, you most likely need to open a TAC case
so the engineer can spend more time on your issue and then access
your setup via webex or via net.
I know there was some issues with presentations that pre-existed from
a prior release when the DMS system was upgraded to 5.2. In most
cases, Recreating the prezo in a NEW prezo in 5.2 usually solves the
issue and prevents new issues from occurring or re-occurring. I know
it can be a pain but you have the prezo's design specs already and re-creating
the prezo is not that bad of an ordeal.
After you logged in to your server, how much time elapsed until you tried to save your presentation?
If you leave DMD open overnight or for hours at a time when you aren't actually using it, I suspect that your sessions might be timing out.
