I'd post this in the Apple forums PLUS make the call to Cupertino to work with them on the bug.
<span id="INSERTION_MARKER"><span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> <span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> I recently lost an entire project, due to trusting KN's "save project with audio and video copied" preference. I've gotten it to work once in the past but I can't tell you how I did it. I recently saved as with that pref, tried to play on another machine with same KN and got the "necessary data ref" missing window. What gives?
Is when the versions change and videos are embedded. Often you can rip out the videos, re-encode them with HANDBRAKE and stick them back in.
I can't tell if that is your post since it's not an exact match and here your user name has not filled in. It shows as "Anonymous." Yes that's a bug in the forum software.
You paid for all this. I always think folk should get their money's worth.
<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">couldn't paste my whole reply to apple forums...but...<span>
<span>you need to open your existing project in KN
<span>Then, open a new project in KN
<span>Make sure your pref's have "copy audio...", "save themes..." and "save as package" all checked. I'm not sure if it needs all these, but I just checked them all.
<span>Copy all your files from the original proj file and paste into the new project.
<span>"Save as" the new project and it should be a much larger proj file with all audio and video embedded permanently.
<span>I tried to quit out of KN, then op-ened my original proj file again. With all my prefs abvove checked I tried to "save as" this project and it did not work. ONLY starting a new project and copying all slides to it worked for me.
<span>I have not found this in th manual yet and that's a bit messed up for me. Especially since I've now lost two important presentations that I'd like to use in demo , etc. <span id="INSERTION_MARKER">
" ONLY starting a new project and copying all slides to it worked for me."
If this worked, then how could those two be lost?
And why not the call to Apple? It was not funny when we asked our IT person to get help and they posted on the internet. We really did mean for them to call mother.
