Save As Menu Item

Many of the windows in SourcePoint have the capability to save their content display as text to a file. This capability is invoked via File|Save As on the menu bar. The Save As dialog box displays.

The dialog box, which works much like any Microsoft® Windows® Save As screen, also has the ability to save specific ranges of contents. In addition, you can save specific ranges of contents. It is necessary to limit the range of output in many cases because the time it takes to save the data can be well into the minutes.

The range may be of one of the following types:

All

All of the data from the currently selected window.

Current Display

The data from the lines currently displayed in the selected window. This is the default setting unless text has been selected.

Selection

If you highlight certain data from a window, the Selection field is enabled. Text selection can be accomplished via the keyboard (e.g., shifting the Right Arrow key) or via the mouse (e.g., dragging the mouse over the region while holding down the left mouse button). This is the default when text has been selected. Otherwise, the current display is the default.

"Special"

Specific data can be identified via beginning and ending range information. The unit of measure will vary, depending on the window.

To help ensure the output text file does not overwrite a file already present, a confirmation dialog box displays.

As the output may take some time, a progress window is shown. The Cancel button is available at any time to stop the output at the shown percentage of the range. The output data up to the time of the cancellation can be saved, thus enabling you to start the output of a large range and then change your mind and stop it at any time.

Recent Projects Menu Item

Select File|Recent Projects on the menu toolbar. The last nine files ("prj") you most recently loaded display. This list is persistent and cumulative between invocations of SourcePoint. The full path displays if the current directory is not the same as that of the file. If the file path is the same as the current directory, only the name and extension of the file display.

Recent Layouts Menu Item

Select File|Recent Layouts for a list of SourcePoint layouts you have developed. The last nine files ("lyt") you most recently loaded display. This list is persistent and cumulative between invocations of SourcePoint. The full path displays if the current directory is not the same as that of the file. If the file path is the same as the current directory, only the name and extension of the file display.

Recent Programs Menu Item

Select File|Recent Programs on the menu toolbar. The last nine files you most recently loaded display. This list is persistent and cumulative between invocations of SourcePoint. The full path displays if the current directory is not the same as that of the file. If the file path is the same as the current directory, only the name and extension of the file display.

Recent Macros Menu Item

Select File|Recent Macros on the menu toolbar. The last nine files you most recently loaded display. This list is persistent and cumulative between invocations of SourcePoint. The full path displays if the current directory is not the same as that of the file. If the file path is the same as the current directory, only the name and extension of the file display.

Exit Menu Item

Select File|Exit on the menu bar to exit SourcePoint.

CAUTION: If you have disabled Save Settings on Exit under the General tab of the Preferences dialog box and you wish to retain the data and settings in a currently active window or window group, you must save the Project (".prj") file before exiting SourcePoint. Select File|Save Project on the menu bar to save the file using the current name and location, or File|Save Project As to save it as another file name or location.
