Confirm Save for Modified Documents

Parent page: WorkspaceManager Dialogs

The Confirm Save for Modified Documents dialog

Summary

This dialog allows the user to choose which modified documents are to be saved, and which are not, when closing one or more projects that have design documents with unsaved modifications.

Access

The dialog is accessed in the following ways:

  • When attempting to close an open project and that project has at least two modified design documents that have not yet been saved.
  • When attempting to close down CircuitMaker and there are at least two open, modified design documents that have not yet been saved - across one or more open projects.

Options/Controls

  • Document List - the main area of the dialog lists all open and modified documents for which you need to make a decision about whether or not to save. Documents are grouped by type (e.g., PCB Documents, PCB Projects, Schematic Documents). Each document lists the following:
    • Document Name - the name of the document, including its extension.
    • Document Path - the path to the local copy of the document that resides in the applicable installation folder.
    • Decision - the decision of whether or not to save the document. By default, the entry will be set to  Save. Use the drop-down to change this to  Don't Save.
The Document Path reflects the local sandbox residence for the project. The actual project is committed and released to the Community Vault. In other words, the sandbox instance is used to accommodate local changes to the design, prior to synchronization with the managed project 'master' stored in that vault.
  • Save All - click this button to quickly set the decision for all documents in the list to  Save.
  • Save None - click this button to quickly set the decision for all documents in the list to  Don't Save.
  • Save Selected - click this button to quickly set the decision for all currently selected documents in the list to  Save.
Use standard Ctrl+click and Shift+click techniques to multi-select entries. Note that multi-selection only works across documents in the same grouped category.
