Enabling AUTOSAVE in BricsCAD
I would like to autosave my drawings every ‘X’ minutes.
Go to Settings > Settings
Under Program Options, Open and Save there are several options to enable auto saving in BricsCAD.
Incremental save backup
Controls the creation of a backup file (BAK). Improves the speed of incremental saves if switched off, especially for large drawings.
Sets the amount of wasted space tolerated in a drawing file expressed as a percentage of the total file size. If the estimate of wasted space exceeds the value set by ISAVEPERCENT, the next save will be a full save, which resets the wasted space estimate to 0. If set to zero, each save is a full save. Values between 0 and 100 are accepted.
Determines whether images of proxy entities are saved in the drawing. If switched off, a bounding box displays instead.
Displays a notice when you open a drawing containing custom entities created by an application that is not present.
Determines how proxy entities display in a drawing. Values between 0 and 2 are accepted.
- 0 = Not displayed
- 1 = Graphic images
- 2 = Bounding box
Proxy web search
Determines whether the program checks for objects enablers:
- 0 = Never
- 1 = If a live Internet connection is present
Sets the save format. Values between 1 and 33 are accepted.
Sets the clipboard format
Save Time Interval
Sets interval in minutes for automatic saves. If set to zero, automatec saves are turned off. Values between 0 and 240 are accepted.
Defines whether macros are enabled when loading a VBA project.
