I cannot manage my files. And manual doesn't help.
I cannot manage my files. Nothing in the manual corresponds either to what I see on the screen or what happens when I click on a menu item. These are files I created last week.
I use Geogebra Classic. I can't find a 'version number'. I run it on a Windows 10 machine. I don't trust clouds and am often away from web access, so I need everything on my local hard drive.
But I cannot upload a file from my hard drive to Geogebra reliably. Nor save it reliably. I know a certain file is there, but is not empty. I go to 'open' on the menu on the right, and to the (cryptic, but I figured it out) icon denoting my local drive, I see the file. And the file is the right size (56K in this case). When I ask the computer to open the file, NOTHING happens.
I checked the manual. It has all these wonderful commands: Save, save as, Open, Open Recent. But I cannot find ANY of these commands in the actual program. All I have is:
"open", which takes me to the cloud by default, and to my hard drive if I ask,
"Save", which sometimes saves to my hard drive, where I want it, and sometimes to a cloud;
Export image, which I have learned not to trust. I just take a screen shot.
Download as... Which also sometimes saves to my hard drive.
I can *never* get a command corresponding to 'save as'.
What is going on? Is my copy of Geogebra Classic defective? Since you started with clouds and ipads, the program has been wild and crazy. Couldn't you have left well enough alone? Or make a separate version for other devices? Integration doesn't work. That's why Windows 8 was abandoned.
I am frustrated, and grateful for any help at all anyone can give me.
***Can you email me when a response is received? That's another problem--these fora require constant monitoring by the user.
