Will my models be automatically saved when working? Where can I set the backup interval?


The program carries out an automatic data backup. You can set the interval for saving the file Position.bak in the menu 'Settings → Program Options' in the 'Program' tab. The interval is set to two minutes by default (see Figure 01).

The automatically created backup copies are saved in the working directory and recovered in the case of a program crash when opening the program again. If you quit the program properly, this backup copy will be deleted.
