Hello!

I've been using ispring for quite a while now, and I have been working on the quizzes inside a course. I am able to create a quiz inside the ispring suite, but when I try to export it to another folder, it doesn't save.

I've tried creating the quiz separate in the quizmaker and then just insert it in the ppt. It works fine but when I try to publish it, the course will not publish the quiz. The create quiz also disappers from folder so I have to redo.

I've been trying all ways I think to publish it (limit long filenames, shorten the ppt content and quiz content), but still, the quiz does not add up in the published course.

Hello!
Thank you for your inquiry!
The reason to this issue that a file path for the file you are trying to export is too long. There is a 260 character limit present in Windows OS. Your quiz file itself has a long name and that's why when you try to import your quiz with a long name in a project folder with a long file path Windows OS just can't copy that file to the folder as it exceeds the amount of the characters that can be used in a file path. And as the process fails to complete iSpring deletes the project's folder.

Here's a few short videos for you showing how this character limit works:

As you can see Windos OS doesn't let a user create a new file with a desired name if the path to it is already almost reaching the limit.

To avoid this issue I would recommend to copy your project files and a quiz that you try to import to the root folder of your HDD or to your desktop for example and shorten the name of the project itself.
