# Save File Handling

Creating/Saving

• use the model save command at the command prompt or in a data file
• press Save ( ) on the toolbar when the i Console pane is active
• use File –> [item] –> Save from the menu when the i Console pane is active (where [item] will be the name of the save file if the current model state is associated with an existing save file; “–” will be displayed for [item] if the current model state is not associated with an existing save file)

Note

If the current model state is associated with an existing save file, the state is saved (with any new data added to the existing file) at one go using the steps above. If the current model state is not associated with a previous save file, the steps above will open a File –> Save dialog for specifying a folder name and file name for the new save file. By default, the dialog will open initially in the folder containing the current project file.

Restoring

• use the model restore command at the command prompt or in a data file
• double click a save file (indicated by ) in the “Saved States” list in the i Project pane, or right-click an item on the list and choose Restore from the menu

Deleting

• in the i Project pane, select and press “Delete” on the toolbar or right-click and choose Delete from the menu
