On the File tab of the Options dialog box, set the environment for saving and opening Show files.
If you set Create Backup File, the backup file (*.hsbk) is created along with the Show file (*.show) each time you run Save. The saved backup file (*.hsbk) remains until you save the file again. However, a backup file will not be created when you save a file for the first time.
The default save path is the same as the original Show file, and you can change the save path by clicking Save To.
Typically only one backup file is created for the original files with the same name. For example, if you specify a backup file path and create two Hwp files with the same name, only one backup file is stored in the designated path.
You can set the option to automatically open the Set Password to Open/Modify dialog box without running File > Document Password each time you save a new document. Until you turn off the feature, it will always run automatically whenever you save a new document. This feature is useful for users who frequently handle documents with confidential information.
If you save a file from the temporary folder in the same folder, it might get deleted. To avoid this, a guide will be displayed, suggesting you to save it in another location.
When you save a file that contains unused slide masters, you are prompted to cleanup those masters.
Select a file format (*.show, *.pptx or *.ppt) for saving when you save a new document or run Save As.
Automatically save temporary files for recovery at regular intervals in minutes after last saved or auto-saved. You can set from 1 to 60 minutes.
It is useful to save automatically when you continue to create a document without saving it, since the amount of data you typed will increase over time.
Automatically save temporary files for recovery if there is no input for a specified amount of time after the last input. You can set from 1 to 60 seconds. Save the file when you stop typing for some time.
Set the default path to save personal templates.
Always Auto Save saves the file as * hsa extension. The folder where the Auto Save file is saved is the Windows temporary folder.
You can check the location of temp folder from Button > About Show > Folder Info.
Always Auto Save is different with Create backup file which specifies whether to create *.hsbk files each time you run File > Save.
If you set Create backup file, the *.hsbk file is created along with *.show when you clicked Save, and it remains until the next time you select Save. In contrast, the *.hsa file created by Always Auto Save will be delete from the disk when you finish using Show normally.
You should not forget to run File > Save while you are editing a document because the purpose of Always Auto Save is simply to provide minimum protection against unexpected accidents. The Auto Save file is just a temporary file named *.hsa, not *.show. This Auto Save file will be deleted when you finish using Show normally. Accident occurs when you could not finish using the program normally. In this case, run Show again to open *.hsa file that remains in the Windows temporary folder. Save this file as a *.show file.
The temporary file for recovery (*.hsa) that are normally opened will be moved to the Recovered folder under the temporary folder. Delete or open this file again as needed.
