(This is the first time the file/project/whatever it's called is being saved, if that matters.)
Okay, taking a hint from your reply, instead of clicking Save, I chose Save As.. in the File menu. The project saved just fine. Phew! Thanks Alan.
Note to developer: the Save As... dialog has no other options than ePub. So at this stage of development it should be grayed out and Save should just save instead of putting up that unhelpful error.
by the way, i've never clicked a save button (didn't realize that there was such a button) i just click the red x in the upper right corner and it asks (if i've made any changes) if i want to save the file. like i said, i'm a noob too!
