When working in VEXcode V5, it is important to understand how to save a project on a macOS device.
Saving VEXcode V5 C++ projects is easy. First, select the project name window.
A Save dialog window will open.
Name your project by typing in your device's Save dialog window.
Notice the .v5cpp file extension after the file name. VEXcode V5 C++ files will have this file extension.
Select the destination, such as the Downloads folder.
Then select ‘Save.’
The file will save to the chosen destination on your device. VEXcode V5 C++ projects are recognizable by their .v5cpp extension.
The updated project name will be visible in the project name window.
Once a project is saved, VEXcode V5 will automatically save all changes in a project.
Note: Whenever there is an unsaved project, VEXcode V5 will prompt users to save their work if the user attempts to:
- Close VEXcode V5
- Create a new project
- Open another project
Using ‘Save As’
You can also use the ‘Save As’ option from the File menu to make a copy of a project under a different name or in a different location.
