autosave file location

Postby striker » Thu Apr 17, 2014 3:32 pm

Win7, Qcad V3.4.6 - I can find a fix FS#424 of 8Dec2011 but it does not describe the folder choice. The program Help and the Book do not mention this topic. So, what folder are the autosave files stored in with this version? Thanks

Autosave files are stored in the same folder as the original drawing or in the same directory as the QCAD3.ini file if the drawing has not been saved yet. This later location depends on the platform. Under Windows, it's something like:
C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Login Name>\Local Settings\Application Data\QCAD (XP) or C:\Users\<Your Login Name>\AppData\Local\QCAD (7, 8)

Note that QCAD automatically handles auto save files. It asks you if you want to open the autosave file if you access the original drawing and a newer auto save version is available.
