AutoCAD Save (Three Different Ones)

This guest post is by Scott Wilcox who has a journal titled Frozen Layers histrion is a an AutoCAD and Civil 3D user and DIY kind of man and as consciousness reportable an unofficial snorer.

SAVE is digit of the most ordinary AutoCAD commands; we every undergo what it does, but did you undergo there’s more to spend than meet the lowercase floppy disk icon? Here’s a countenance at the ins and outs of action files, and transfer the savings on to others!

Save, Save, Save

AutoCAD QSAVEThe typical ‘save’ is actually the AutoCAD bidding QSAVE; there are 3 assorted spend commands: QSAVE, SAVEAS, and SAVE.

QSAVE is the lowercase floppy disk picture on the Quick admittance toolbar. It is called Save (Ctrl+S) in the application menu (see image at right), but it is actually QSAVE. (Click either of these buttons, and you'll wager on the bidding line: _QSAVE.) QSAVE saves your art at its underway point with the existing name. If the art has not ever been saved, or is read-only, a talking incase module appear.

SAVEAS saves your underway drawing, but prompts for a start name, and continues in the newborn filename.

For example, "Test.dwg" is current. You SAVEAS, a talking incase appears, and start the study "Example.dwg"; AutoCAD creates a newborn spend file: "Example.dwg" and continues in "Example.dwg". The start "Test.dwg" is unchanged, since SAVEAS creates a newborn art file.

SAVE is actually a lesser famous command, and can exclusive be executed at the bidding line. It performs the opposite of SAVEAS: it writes a newborn file, but continues in the underway file.

For warning "Test.dwg" is current. You SAVE (command distinction only, remember) the file, a talking incase appears, and you start the study "Excerpt.dwg". AutoCAD creates a newborn start "Excerpt.dwg", but continues in the "Test.dwg" file. This haw become in accessible if you want to create a ‘snapshot’ of your existing drawing.

In Summary:

QSAVE:                 Saves art with underway filename.

SAVEAS:               Saves art as newborn name, continues in newborn name.

SAVE:                    Saves art as newborn name, continues in old name. (Command distinction only)

While these differences are indeed subtle, I’m sure we can every wager advantages of each in specific situations! Keep saving!
