I never changed or created an transitions. So my next question I guess you know, is how can I save the changed style as an transition?
I allready found the discription in the manual.
Open the Effects (FX) window using the FX icon in the Build or Design Workspace Toolbar, and select the Transitions tab.
Click the Create button to open the Create a Transition window.
Fill out the information for your new transition
Click Ok to create the new transition.
There's not much I can add to this other than that you will want to give the revised transition a new name. Also, if you want to create a category for your new transition, this is where you'll do it.

I do not know what I am doing playing with a sytle.psh file or anything in cache, but I had nothing to lose, so I just tried tweaking some spots in the slide to see if the gray bar would disappear in the preview. It didn't UNTIL I went a changed a setting that said BACKGROUND SOURCE that was set to the default of the show. I changed this to SOLID COLOR black. When I did, MY GRAY BAR DISAPPEARED IN THE PREVIEW!!! Now, if I can just figure out how to save it as a newly named transition so I can use it in my shows, I will be good to go.
I believe the person who sold me the transitions will provide me with new copies if it is indeed a glitch I did not cause, but, if they don't, I will have to go back and fix quite a few transitions to get that gray bar out... so I need to know -- how do I save an edited transitions (that are opened from a style.psh file) to a newly named pxt transition file? I hope I haven't rambled too much and you understand what I am saying...
Please tell me I can do this.... because I do not see an option to name it as a pxt file. LOL, I am scared to exit from Producer and turn off my laptop because I finally have the transition with no gray bar, but the only SAVE option I see is another psh file. HELP!
UPDATE ---- Sorry! I missed the page 2 of this section, which had the very answer I needed -- how to save edited transitions. THANK YOU to everyone here, particularly the beautiful and generous lady who provided this information!
There's nothing really special about a transition ... it's a slide that has a bunch of settings for each of it's layers. And those layers are identified as being associated with the incoming slide or outgoing slide (which, really, is the main difference between an ordinary slide and a slide built to work as a transition).
You mentioned that this gray bar appeared in all of your transitions ... and you fixed it by changing your default background source? Was your background source a gradient? or was it pointing to an image? I can't imagine that this was the case for your transitions because then all of the transitions would have to be changed ... and my guess is that they're all set to the default background. So, the transition you edited isn't the source of the problem (or the solution). At least that's what it sounds like ... the problem was your setting for the show's background.
So, you don't have to edit all of your transitions now ... it sounds like it was simply a background setting for your show. . . . still an odd problem that showed up tho.
Whatever, glad it finally was solved.
Sorry for thinking it was the background (that was one of the changes I tweaked), but it was the above setting instead that makes the gray bar disappear.
Now that I have more time tonight, I am going to test my transitions from my source. About a dozen were affected, but it may not affect all. I need to take the time to check it out.
Thanks for being so generous with your input. This is WAY over my head...lol.
I really was way, way too illiterate to try to figure out how to fix them myself (as I said, I'd rather BUY them, lol). I only investigated trying because I didn't want to bother anyone with what would turn out to be, no doubt, my fault (or computer's fault) in some way, and it was just too embarrassing to, but thank goodness, the creator is working with me to convert them into a format that my darn computer will read correctly ... What a angel, really, when they really would not have to since it is somehow the fault of my computer! Sometimes, I am just amazed at the graciousness/generous nature of some people... Certainly makes me want to buy lots more stuff from them in the future, that's for sure!
Anyway, just wanted you to thank you again for all your input (which was really more than my pea brain could handle, unfortunately), but all is well that ends well because I am slowly getting to replace the transitions that were giving me problems.
Thanks to everyone again. I am in awe of your talents and feeling so good about a world where everyone is so kind about helping others!
