Solution to last puzzle in a collection not being saved

I have been playing the collection I made, and when I complete the last puzzle in the collection the solution is not being saved. All other puzzles still have their solutions, as the Load Solution button in the Scores window is active when I select the score, but in the last puzzle it remains disabled. No matter how many times I re-import the solution and play it through, it never gets saved, even though the score entry shows "Checked".

Here's the solution in question.

I just played the solution and it saved fine.

When you play the solution, do you get an entry on the scoreboard or not?

Yes, and it says "Checked", but when I select it, the Load solution button remains disabled. It is only the last puzzle in the collection that this is happening with, so I am at a loss.

I have gone to the next level (which goes to the first level of the next collection), gone to the previous level, even changed collections from the collection drop-menu, and then returned to that puzzle and the solution is not saved.

I have tried this multiple times, but I have not tried this with any other collection, just my own, so I do not know if it would happen with any other collection.

Please try the following:
Delete all scores from that last level. Import the moves (CTRL+I) to play the level again. Tip: press both shift-keys to speed it up.
Make sure the level is finished and that the next level opens after a short delay. Go back and check the scoreboard. Do you have a new entry. Is there a "Y" in the solution column.

When I went to follow your instructions, I noticed that the entry had changed. The Y. was gone and Checked had changed back to Local.

I delete the entry, and the downloaded score entry that was there, and paste the solution back in.

Re-importing the solution created a new score. The Y. is there, and the state is Local.

Selecting the entry, Load Solution becomes active. I load the solution and close the window.

I play the solution at high speed to make it go faster. Then I click the next level arrow, and after a second the first level of Sokobig 70 is displayed. This is what I did before, by the way.

I click the previous level arrow and my last level is re-displayed.

I open the Score window, and the downloaded score has returned, and the Y. is still there, but the sstate still reads Local, even though the solution did solve the puzzle.

Selecting the entry, Load Solution becomes active. (This is different from the last few times I did this.)

I re-load the solution and close the window, then play the solution (again at high speed).

Clicking the next level arrow, the Sokobig level is displayed, only almost instantaneous instead of the second delay.

Clicking the previous level arrow, and opening the Score window, the entry still says Local instead of Checked, but now the Load Solution button is active.

I did not do anything different from my previous attempts to keep the solution, so what changed? And why is it still saying Local instead of Checked?

I try closing the program and re-opening it to see if that does anything. Nothing changed. The entry still says Local, but the solution is still there. I don't know why the solution was saved this time, but not the other times.

Thanks for the help, but I'm still mystified.

I'm also mystified. But it seems to be working okay now.

I will keep you posted on anything else that happens with this.
