Today’s release adds support for auto-save, updates to Eclipse 4.15 platform, and includes a few other improvements and bug-fixes. Read on for more details.
A frequently requested functionality for WireframeSketcher is automatic save of modified files. Auto-save helps to prevent situations where unsaved changes to your files are lost because of a computer crash.
The new version of WireframeSketcher enables auto-save by default. You can enable/disable auto-save in WireframeSketcher’s preferences:
This option is only available in the standalone version of WireframeSketcher. If you are using the Eclipse plug-in then you can enable the same functionality using Window > Preferences > General > Editors > Autosave preference page.
Note that the auto-save is only triggered after some period of inactivity, meaning that there is no keyboard or mouse activity for some predefined time. This means that if you need for some changes to be reflected immediately in a linked file then you’ll still need to save your changes manually.
