Name your project by typing in your device's Save dialog window.

Note: notice the ‘Save as’ type is ‘VEXcode EXP C++ Project.’ All VEXcode EXP C++ files will have this ‘Save as’ type.

Once a project is saved, VEXcode EXP will automatically save all changes in a project.

Note: Whenever there is an unsaved project, VEXcode EXP will prompt users to save their work if the user attempts to:

  • Close VEXcode EXP
  • Create a new project
  • Open another project
  • Download a project to the EXP Brain

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.
