EdrawMax Guide

Save Documents

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

Go to the File tab > Save as or press Ctrl + S. You can choose whether to save the documents in your computer or cloud through the Save as option.

File Recovery

File Recovery is not a replacement for regularly saving your files. If you choose not to save the recovered file after you open it, the file will be deleted. If you save the recovered file, it will replace the original file (unless you specify a new file name for it).

The more frequently your files are saved, the more information will be recovered if there is a power failure or emergency that may cause losing diagrams.

Go to the View tab, click the File Recovery button to open File Recovery window where you can see all the available backup files.

Navigate to File > Options > General to set a time interval of saving auto-recovered files.
