 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi,

i did not use Arduino for a while and wanted to use it
now for editing some projects. When i do "Save as ..."
on a modified project, now an externeal (i think GTK)
save as appears and it stores only the actual single
project.ino. As far as i remember the Arduino IDE always
uses a new folder and saved all files from a project in
the preferred sketchbook.

Any ideas what i do wrong or whta i should check for ?

thx wally

Yes, sorry, it saves the entire folder.
Is there a way to let 'save as' suggest the new folder name on
base of the actual projectname as it was in the former version ?
Is it possible to switch back to the old way ?
When it was changed ? i still have 1.0.1

I am not sure what do you mean, but again I am pretty sure if you test it couple of times you will get your answer. At least old 0023 works the same.

I'm nearly sure it was even in 1.0.1 an IDE-own 'save as'
dialog. Now it appears to be the save as dialog of the
underlying OS.

explaining what i wanted to say is:
let say actual project is 'MyProject_004'
and i want to save as 'MyProject_005'.
In the old method the dialog suggested the
actual project name and i just have to
increase the last number.
Now i must type the entire new project name

wally

btw. i tried with very old 0.19 and its the
same as 1.0.1, so i assume its defined in
preferences.txt and/or friends and should be
changeable so.

Hehehe, imagine every app implementing his own save dialog... will be a massive mess.

If you don't see the filename it is pretty sure because your OS, and not arduino. Arduino passes the name of the Sketch when calling the Save Dialog.

I can agree with everything you mentioned but this is not
an answer to any of my questions.

Maybe i do not recall correctly and Arduino IDE never uses
its own 'save as' dialog.

Does Arduino IDE never had its own 'save as' dialog ?

Probably no, at least not in Windows. (as far I remember)
