If you save a document that has not previously been saved, the software automatically prompts you to indicate if you want to save the changes.

To save the active document

  1. Click File > Save.

  2. If you have made changes after the document was last saved or if you have never saved the active document, you are prompted to indicate if you want to save your changes. Do one of the following:

  • If you do not want to save your changes, click No.

  • If you want to save the changes, click Yes. If you click Yes, the Save As dialog box is displayed so that you can give the document a name, and specify a folder and format to save it to.

  • If you do not want to close the document, click Cancel.

To save a document to the previous version in SmartSketch

  1. Click File > Save As.

  2. Select the drive and folder for the new document.

  3. In the File Name box, type a new name for the document.

  4. In the Save As Type box, select SmartSketch 5.x (*.igr) so it can be shared with users still using the previous version of SmartSketch.

  • If you open a .sha file in SmartSketch, the software will not allow you to save it to a previous version.

To save a document in a different format

  1. Click File > Save As.

  2. Select the drive and folder for the new document.

  3. In the File Name box, type a new name for the document.

  4. In the Save As Type box, select the document format you want to use.

  • If the active document is read-only, you can save changes only by saving the document with a new name.

  • To save files containing unavailable linked references to a previous version of the software (SmartSketch 5.x), you must do one of the following:

    • Delete the SmartFrame that references the unavailable linked file.

    • Make the link available by restoring it to its original location, or place the linked file in the same location as the file that references the link.
