Demo version of DPS

I have a project that originally had one article in the default collection.

The article was a converted HTML page using the HTML article packager.

The Preflight app worked and I was able to see that article.

After changing the entire project and clicking the update Preflight button, it will not update.

The project image finally update about 2 days later.

However, the original article is still there and all other collections / articles are not.

I have went as far as deleting the original article and it still shows.

From what I have read you can't delete a project to start over.

So how do i get it to update?

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

I find that when projects are first started, they can be tricky to work with, especially when you make drastic changes to content/collections/order. I find that a bit of drastic treatment has helped, or at least I think it did.

Just yesterday I was trying to get a project prepared for a demo. I wanted to remove _everything_ from the top-level so I could show the error state when you have nothing in the top-level. But my preflight apps wouldn't let go of what used to be there.

I found that I needed to force-quit the app, this was drastic enough to make the app go look for the current state of things.

(I did what I intended about articles, collections, order, cards, and layouts -- then clicked preflight. Then I force-quit the app and upon relaunch, I saw what I expected.)

I think some of this drastic action helps because when you have a really basic setup (you had only one article in the top-level) it's really hard to change views to get the update notice. Some would suggest "background/foreground the app" -- and that might do it, but I find a good old force-quit is where I go.

I have been experiencing the same issues, Collin's recommendations works, it is laborious, but effective to force quit and relaunch the app.
