Saving the Project


To ensure the safety of your work in Advance Design, frequent saving is recommended. The application supports automatic saving at intervals you can define, ensuring your progress is continuously secured.

The Advance Design projects are saved in files with the .fto extension. You can configure the default working folder for the FTO projects and the automatic save options using the Options - Application dialog box. Refer to the section on Configuring the general settings for detailed instructions. You can create a new version of the project, without affecting the current one by saving it with another name.
