Save Kit - struggling to understand how it operates

So I am on latest firmware. SAVE KIT is not always visible.

Logically it seems it should be visible after a change is made to a kit since the last SAVE KIT event

But it is not - and SAVE PROJECT does not also update the KIT - eg when I reload the kit after a SAVE PROJECT (in instances where SAVE KIT is not visible) it presents without the recent changes.

The manual says “If a kit was loaded or saved, and a project was not loaded or saved after that, then the Save Kit menu option is available to save edits made to kit parameters. This option also copies any WAV files to the folder that were assigned to tracks since the kit was last loaded or saved.”

What am I missing here?

Just for public info, I’m pasting the reply I gave you via support channels here:

The reason you’re losing the ability to Save Kit when you Save Project is that all files are moved to the project folder when you save a project. This is a deliberate feature designed to keep projects self-contained. At this point, the project loses its association with the kit (because you can’t point to two sets of samples simultaneously).

So your workflow of working on project and kit at the same time won’t really work. I’d suggest working on the project and then saving out a kit at the end if you want to reuse those samples in a different project.

Note: you can also use “Save Kit As” to overwrite the kit.
