cannot save

Hi y'all.  I could use some help here.  I just spent all night editing a short 4 minute video and now Camtasia won't let me save it or save it as another file.  I've been saving all along until the last few hours and now there's nothing that I seem to be able to do.  I also get an error every couple tries telling me that the document's file had been changed by another app.  This is not a great start for me with the app.

try to use "Save As" from File menu. and .cmproj file is not Camtasia project. Camtasia project has .camproj extension or .tscproj extension which up to version you use.

So I deleted one element that I realized wasn't rendering properly (a jpg with annotations) and then suddenly it all worked again.  Putting the jpg back in again with annotations didn't mess it up a second time.  So that was rather strange!  Thanks for the replies. (Save as wasn't working either.  The file continues to be .cmproj.)

It's a shame to find out how buggy the app is. :(

I've had this same problem...constantly! The app is super unstable. Makes me nervous every time I start working on a project.

That's true.  I'm super nervous every time I click the stop recording button to see if it will bug out or not.  After a fresh (re)install about two months back, it hasn't happened again yet.  There is a lag after clicking stop though that also stops my heart...but it seems to be good again.
