How To Save A Project In Nxt5

Question

Help, I can't see how to save a NXT5slideshow project in a format which will allow me to come back and edit it later. I can save as .dmss but can't see how to save as a .rox file.

If you are working on a NXT 5 slideshow project then dmss is the correct extension for the project file.

 

I believe rox files are data project files and have nothing to do with slideshow or video projects. I think that the rox extension is not even used anymore and has been replaced by the rcl extension for data projects.

Myguggi is correct.

 

DMSS is the slideshow project file and ROX is the current data project file extension. (RCL was the extension type in some earlier versions)

Thanks both, it was confusing when trying to open a saved project in NXT Creator 5, it simply said that there is no .rox file to open!

Another "Trap for young players", I'm afraid. It's another Roxio foible - not your fault.

 

From the Home (Main Menu) application, if you click File > Open Saved Project you get to look for data projects (.ROX and .ROXIO). It seems there is no way to open a saved Slideshow project from the Main Menu, even if you have the Photo sub-menu open.

Perhaps the Slideshow Assistant was overlooked when they were programming the Home app, or maybe it was an afterthought? In any event I can't see any way to open a saved slideshow project either from within the Slideshow Assistant itself, or from the Home app.

 

What you have to do is go and locate the saved .DMSS file and then double-click on it. That should open Slideshow Assistant with your project running in it.

 

Very confusing, but not your fault.
