I have a project I've been working on, and I saved it in it's own file on my desktop. When I open the desktop file, and click on the Sonar file, Sonar opens as normal with a box in the middle of the track view that has the name of my file. When I click open it says "This file already exists. Please choose a different project name". But the file listed IS the file I want. I can't get it to open. Thanks!

Hi David,

I'm not exactly sure what's happening there... what if you open SONAR first. And then try loading the project using the File > Open menu?

Yes, that works, but I wanted to keep all related files together of a given project (Sibelius, pdf's, exported mix, original Sonar, etc). This works fine with Sibelius and most other file types. Why can't I save it this way? Is this a bug?

Hi David,

I'm not exactly sure how you're saving your files. You should be using the Per-Project Folder option in SONAR and you should be saving projects in only one location, which is designated in SONAR's folder options. Are you doing that?

Of all Scott's tips in SONAR XI Power, his suggestion to use per-project files has probably saved me the most grief!

Hi Nikki,

Yep, the Per-Project option makes organizing your project files much easier.

Thanks for reading my book!
