22. Saving Lessons

Saving your lesson is important. CALI advises authors to save early and often, as computer crashes do occur. As a default, CALI Author prompts you every fifteen minutes to save your book. You can specify how often CALI Author prompts you to save your book. Select View-Options and the Authoring & Saving tab. Finally, CALI Author prompts you to save your book before you leave the program. When you click on the file menu or use the ALT-F keyboard combination you will see the file menu (below), allowing you to save your book. There are three ways to save lessons in CALI Author: (1) Save Book, (2) Save Book as, and (3) Save a copy; each save option serves a different purpose. Save Book will save the book using the lesson's title as its default file name. Files are saved to a folder on your C drive (assuming your accepted the default CALI installation) - C:/CCALI/My Books/your lesson title here.cbk CALI Author books save with the extension .cbk

  • Save Book As allows you to designate a directory and folder
  • Save a copy allows you to save a duplicate file to a flash drive, CD or network drive
