Often, when using the Save>Copy Project to..., I select the folder that I want it copied to and then enter the new project name but the project ends up being copied to the default location instead of the selected location.  :wacko:

I haven't noticed that, however, one thing I have been meaning to point out to other users ...


When you use SAVE > COPY PROJECT TO, although Softplan makes a copy you are still working in the ORIGINAL PROJECT. You have to close one and open the other to work in the new project. It's caught me out a couple of times ... I'm putting it down to senility. Hopefully I'll remember next time now that I've written it down.


There are 10 types of people in this world ....... Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

I seem to be suffering from the same ailment. It caught me a few times as well.
