Saving your workspace

Saving a workspace saves to an .ACT3D file. Perform this often enough to prevent data loss due to emergency circumstances. It is recommended to set your Save ACT3D options before opening your first file.

Save Options

SpinFire Ultimate offers different options to save with the ACT3D file. These can be found on the Options > Settings >3D Viewer page.

To save a workspace,

NOTE: Saving only saves the active workspace. If multiple workspaces are open, then each must be saved separately.
