    Save on Close?

    WriterBen
      If you exit out of RoboHelp, shouldn't it ask you if you want to save your project, or simply do a "save all" automatically before closing? Seems like such a fundamental thing to be missing. Or am I missing the point of this as some type of "feature"?

          Hi WriterBen. It does this anyway. Part of the process of exiting the app is to perform a project save. Are you saying this hasn't happened?

            Yes, it has happened a few times since I begain using RoboHelp. At first I didn't realize this was the cause of missing work. Until yesterday, when I had to leave rather quickly and exited RoboHelp without saving. My work since the last save I had done was gone when I opened my project again.

            Is there a periodic save feature that I haven't found in the software?

              Yes it's called the Save All toolbar icon . You could add this as a feature request by using this link. I suspect the reason it has never been there is that so many files potentially require saving (e.g. topic, template, style sheet, baggage, etc.). That's why the toolbar and File menu has the wording as save all.

                By chance is your project stored on a network? If so, this could likely explain why exiting the application may lose or otherwise not store changes. If this is the case, I'd move the files from the network to the local PC.
