Quik no longer saves file after adding gages? (only shares to FB or YT)

WIthin the last 2 months, has the functionality been reduced for Quik desktop (Mac)?

 

I used to be able to add gages to my videos and save the files locally.  Now, if you add gages, you only have the option to export to Facebook or Youtube directly.  What kind of BS is this?

 

When you click on share, if you try to choose the file itself (instead of choosing the FB or YT option), Quik only brings up the current file's storage location in Finder.  Thanks GoPro, I know where I store my files - now let me actually save them.

 

Just downloaded most recent Quik version 2.7.0.874 ... i think I had 2.7.0 before.  Same issue persists.

 

If the functionality has straight-up been removed, that's very dissapointing GoPro ...... especially after I bought a 2nd Hero7 Black specifically to use with the guages functionality.

Hello @andylowe04. Sorry to hear about the trouble. Try this. After adding the gauges, click on the Trim icon (but do not do any trimming if not necessary) then click on Save.

Ahhh... awesome, it works.  Is it just me, or has this changed since a few months ago?

 

Thanks for super quick reply too!

I don't think Quik has been updated in months. In fact, it is not compatible with the GPS data in the new cameras.
