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

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.

The file will save to the chosen destination on your device. All VEXcode EXP C++ projects are recognizable by their .expcpp extension.

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.
