Save Files

(CTRL + S)

When you save a file, you can save it into a folder on your hard disk drive, the desktop or another storage location. You need to identify the target location in the Save in list. Besides, the saving process is the same no matter what location you choose.

Go to File tab, and then click Save or press Ctrl + S.

Save Files in Different Formats

There will be many occasions when you need to save and export your designs into different formats and share them with others.

Sometimes you need to view or print a document on different computers and platforms, and it's better for you to use Edraw Max to export your documents to PDF files. When you need to make a presentation, you may want to export your documents to sildes.

To insert a drawing into other documents (for instance, Word), you need to transform it into a file in graphic format. Edraw Max always performs well in these tasks.

Go to File tab, click Save As, choose the format types such as PDF, HTML, graphics or others.

Save Auto Recovery Files

Auto Recovery is not a replacement for regularly saving your files. If you choose not to save the recovery file after you open it, the file will be deleted. If you save the recovery file, it will replace the original file (unless you specify a new file name). The more frequently your files are saved, the more information will be recovered if there is a power failure or other problem while a file is open.
