It is the most current version of Lectora, 17.1.3.

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">This is something I’ve noticed consistently, in fact every day, and finally captured it</span>

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">In the attached mp4, you’ll find an audio track with four synced events. Event 3’s timing was changed from 11.50 to 9.30. Upon finishing the change, the Synchronize Events list moved the event position from last in the list to second on the list. The event now no longer works and even though the line of text is set to initially hidden, it shows when the page shows. </span>

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">This happens frequently when changing the timing of events already synced to an audio file. The only way I can get the page to do what it is supposed to is to delete the event and remake it.</span>

In addition, if you create an event before the audio track plays, meaning the event will have timecode 00:00:00, and then change the timecode to what you want it to be, it will not move to the correct spot in the list based on it's time code. It just stays at the top of the list with the timecode you entered and the actions you assign do not fire. I battle with this every single day since all of my events and actions are synced to audio tracks. It makes things a nightmare. You can find an example of this in the attached png.
