My™ error message is slightly different, but the result is identical. Right now, I’m being denied viewing, saying it’s a private video.

Hello everyone. YouTube is experiencing a glitch. I am going to have to delete the video and reupload. Sorry about the inconvenience. It will take a few minutes. Thank you for your patience.

I had no problem watching the video at all. :thinking:

At least that’s not impossible. And in the “fear” Google might suffer from digital dementia, I have now stored over 3 GB of your videos with me.
:wink:

@DavidMahl, maybe you were “too late”? Corinne has fixed this very quickly!

@CelticCoco Another excellent tutorial :slight_smile:

There is a bug that may/will affect people on 4.4.8 and 5.0.6. I have it on Linux but haven’t tested Windows yet.
If you start a fresh session while in Subwindows mode and open a file, that file’s subwindow is full size with no surround. So, if you then do Window → New View and select the same file, the new subwindow is hidden behind the first subwindow.
You have to do Window → Cascade to get them both visible.

You refer to the smaller subwindow as ‘the duplicate’ but they are both equivalent, just different sizes.

At 5:10, the caption says, “Always save your work from the Duplicate Subwindow”.
As far as I know, saving from either subwindow is the same result as saving from the other one.

Glad that you posted about Cascading the windows. That worked on Android. :+1:

Great information. Thanks.
Regarding, the wording, I don’t always find the good English word. So, that’s on me.
Finally, saving the work from the duplicate helps me work faster. I don’t know why, but it does. Maybe I’m just crazy.
