To open an existing Chart Diagram file;-
On the main menu bar, select File > Open. The Open dialog opens.
Navigate to the desired file. Only files that have been created with Stitchmastery and have a ".knt2" file extension can be opened.
The Open dialog can also be opened using the keystroke Control+O (on Windows) or Cmd+O (on macOS) or by selecting the Open Icon from the toolbar.
Stitchmastery maintains a list of recently opened files that provides a shortcut when opening. To view the list select File from the main menu bar. The list is located towards the bottom of the drop down menu. Selecting a file opens it.
To save a Chart Diagram file, on the main menu bar, select either File > Save (to save the currently active file) or File > Save All (to save all files with unsaved edits).
Alternatively use the keystrokes Control+S / Control+Shift+S (on Windows) or Cmd+S / Cmd+Shift+S (on macOS) or select the Save / Save All Icons from the toolbar.
Note: This is only valid if files have unsaved edits. Saving is disabled when Stitchmastery is running in demo mode.
If the Preference option 'Automatically create a backup file (*.bak) when saving' is checked then Stitchmastery makes a copy of the current file (for example example.knt2) and adds a .bak file extension. Hence there is a copy of the file in the same folder as the original called example.knt2.bak. Stitchmastery also saves the changes to the current file. Thus example.knt2.bak would be a version of example.knt2 at the point that it was last successfully saved.
The reason for implementing this is that, if something happens to Stitchmastery at the point when it is saving any edits to the file on disk, for example, a power failure, then currently this could corrupt the file and all of its contents would be lost. This is a very rare occurrence but not a good outcome when it happens. This feature means that if it does occur at least a copt of the previous version would be available that can be used to recover the file.
To save a Chart Diagram file as a duplicate;-
On the main menu bar, select File > Save As. The Save As dialog opens.
The file name contains a generated default name. If desired, type in a different file name. The file extension must be ".knt2".
Alternatively select the Save As icon from the toolbar.
To close a Chart Diagram file;-
On the main menu bar, select File > Close (to close the currently active file) or File > Close All (to close all open files).
If any files have unsaved edits you will be prompted to either cancel the close or to save edits.
Alternatively use the keystrokes Control+W / Control+Shift+W (on Windows) or Cmd+W / Cmd+Shift+W (on macOS).
