Saving Files

Main menu:

File > Save/Save As/Save Other > Save All

Compact layout:

File > Save/Save As/Save Other > Save All

Classic layout:

File Tools Panel > Save/Save As/Save All

 

Save saves changes made to the document in the current tab to its associated file. If the document has no associated file a Save window is displayed so a file name and location can be chosen. Save is disabled if the current document contains no unsaved modifications.

Documents can be saved using a number of different file formats. See the section on file formats to learn more about which format is best suited for your document.

Save As allows a document to be saved with a different file name, location, or file format.

Save All saves any changes made to any of Jarte's open files.

Document changes can also be saved by clicking the Unsaved Changes Indicator in Jarte's status bar.

Tip: Go to File > File Options > Set Open/Save Default Folder to set the default folder used by Save.

Tip: Advanced setting Default Save Filter Index can be used to set the default document format used by Save.

 

 

Auto Save

Main menu:

File > File Options > Auto Save

Compact layout:

File > File Options > Auto Save

Classic layout:

File Tools Panel > Options > Auto Save

 

Auto Save automatically saves changes to open files on a periodic basis. This limits the loss of any work done to an open file if a computer crash occurs while editing the file. Note that a new document can not be auto saved until after it has been manually saved to a file for the first time. Also, Auto Save automatically saves any unsaved changes a document may have when the document is closed.

Document Backups

Main menu:

File > File Options > Create Document Backups

File > File Options > Explore Document Backup Folder

Compact layout:

File > File Options > Create Document Backups

File > File Options > Explore Document Backup Folder

Classic layout:

File Tools Panel > Options > Create Document Backups

File Tools Panel > Options > Explore Document Backup Folder

 

It is a good practice to always keep backup copies of your documents! Jarte creates a backup file the first time an open document is saved during an editing session. The backup file is a copy of what the file looked like before the changes made in the current editing session. The presence of a backup copy guards against accidental loss of work due to a saved mistake made in the most recent editing session.

Jarte keeps all backup files in a special folder created for that purpose. The backup folder can be accessed at any time using Explore Document Backup Folder. Advanced setting Backup Folder Path can be used to specify the location of the backup folder. Backup files files older than 30 days are automatically deleted.

Tip: It is also a good practice a keep another backup copy of your important documents on a separate storage device than the one used for the original file. For example, if your documents are stored on your computer's primary hard drive then it is desirable to store a separate copy of those documents on a different hard drive or on a USB flash drive. This practice guards against the loss of files due to a failure of your primary storage device. Another easy way to backup your important files is to use a cloud storage service such as DropBox. DropBox backs up your files automatically and it even keeps 30 days worth of older versions of your files in case you ever need them.

Crash Guard

The Crash Guard feature automatically protects against lost work in case of a hardware crash or software crash. If a crash occurs while you have unsaved work in your open documents then Jarte will notify you of the situation the next it is started. In that case, Jarte will direct you to its Crash Recovery Files folder (a subfolder of the Document Backups folder) where you will find copies of the files you were working on that include the changes that were not saved in the original files at the time of the crash. The file copies in the Crash Recovery Folder are read-only and may not be modified. Use Save As to save these files to their original files, or to new files.

Note that Crash Guard is always enabled unless the Auto Save feature is enabled. If Auto Save is enabled then Crash Guard does not protect documents that are associated with files (i.e., documents that are not new and unsaved) since it would be redundant with the Auto Save feature. However, Crash Guard does protect new, unsaved documents, even when Auto Save is enabled, since Auto Save can not protect new documents with no associated file. Files in the Crash Recovery Files folder are saved for 30 days.

Saving Files to a Favorite Folder

Main menu:

File > Save Other

Compact layout:

File > Save Other

Classic layout:

File Tools Panel > Save As

 

Jarte makes it convenient to save files to favorite folders by presenting a list of your favorite folders in the Save Other submenu.  Selecting a favorite folder from the Save Other menu displays the Save As window open to the specified folder.

Saving a File as a Template

See Working with Templates.

Export as PDF

Main menu:

File > Save Other > Export as PDF

Compact layout:

File > Save Other > Export as PDF

Classic layout:

File Tools Panel > Save As > Export as PDF

 

Export as PDF exports the current document to a PDF file. Jarte does not perform the PDF export itself. Export as PDF simply makes use of whatever PDF software program you have installed on your computer for this purpose. If you do not already have a PDF program installed on your computer then you may be interested in this recommended PDF program.

Tip: If Jarte does not automatically recognize your installed PDF software, or if there is a conflict between  multiple PDF programs, then advanced setting PDF Printer Name can be used to resolve the problem.

Export as HTML

Main menu:

File > Save Other > Export as HTML

Compact layout:

File > Save Other > Export as HTML

Classic layout:

File Tools Panel > Save As > Export as HTML

 

Export as HTML exports the current document to an HTML file.
