program file or project file?

Post by pasquali_988 » Thu Jan 28, 2021 3:27 pm

I don't know the difference between a project and a program..... I thought I was saving what I was working on, but I noticed that the file name I selected does not always come up on the top center of the window. It still has the default name shown. When I exited the program and tried to reopen the file, I got the following error. CANNOT OPEN THIS PROGRAM FILE!!! THIS IS A PROJECT FILE. What is the difference?

A project file is one that you create from the start and you can edit. A program is run only and can not be edited.

Thanks JSwope! That is correct. Be absolutely sure to KEEP copies of Projects. If you save only as Program, you cannot edit at a later time, you can only edit Project files.
