BaseCamp list won't export /save list as GPX

A BaseCamp list I've been working with without any issues suddenly won't export as a .gpx file.

Instead, it saves the file using the first few letters of the file name, not the full name, and not as .gpx.

Thereafter, in Properties, under "Type of file," it identifies the exported & saved file type using the original file name, not as a .gpx file.

It displays fine in BaseCamp and in MapSource when I choose those programs to open it.

I've closed the program, restarted ... still no love.

Any of you magicians out there ever seen and fixed this one?

1,000 thanks ...

Try this

In the bottom left pane showing what you want to export. Select the top item, scroll down, hold Shift, select the bottom item. Go up to File - Export Selection. Should export as a .GPX to the location of your choice. If you Export Collection from the top left pane it Exports as a BaseCamp Backup file.

Thanks, 250senuf. I've been exporting and importing routinely entire lists in the following manner without problems ... till an hour ago:

-- Select the list in the list folder

-- Go to file/export

-- Choose "Export [list name]

When the window opens with the destination folders to choose from, in the bos to the right of "File Name" it states only the first few characters of the actual file name.

In the box "Save as type," it states that I am about to save in .gpx format.

I save it, and it saves it as though that truncated file name is the format, in a non-BaseCamp, non-.gpx format. (In Properties it should state that its file type is .gpx. Instead, it states the file type is the truncated file name.)

I have to choose to open it in BaseCamp (or MapSource). It opens and looks fine, but in properties, the file type is the truncated file name, not the usual .gpx indication.

My other lists export fine, as always. Just this one and its derivatives are the problem. It always exported without problems previously.

This kind of thing ever happens with my Benchmarks ...

Try renaming it to .gpx ? See what happens then.

Is there something unusual in the list?

BINGO! That did it, 250senuf. Thank you so much!

I must've deleted the .gpx in the list name at some point when I was "fixing" things that were working just fine ...

When I download a .gpx file, Mapsource will not open it. I just go into properties and change it to .gbd and I'm good to go.
