Saving a VEXcode EXP C++ Project on macOS

When working in VEXcode EXP, it is important to understand how to save a C++ project on a macOS device.

Using 'Save'


Saving a VEXcode EXP C++ project 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.

Note: notice the .expcpp file extension after the file name. All VEXcode EXP 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. All VEXcode EXP C++ projects are recognizable by their .expcpp extension.


The updated project name will be visible in the project name window.


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.
