Welcome back to our tutorial series on Sympathy for Data. In this video, we'll walk you through the process of saving and opening flows.
Step 1: Check for Unsaved Changes
If there's an asterisk (*) on the tab header, it indicates that the flow has unsaved changes.
Step 2: Save As Option
To save these changes, open the file menu and select the "Save As" option.
Step 3: Choose the Filename
This action will open a window where you can choose the filename for your flow. Instead of the base filename "New Flow 0.syx", you might want to opt for a more informative name.
Step 4: Create an Output Directory
First, let's create an output directory called "Demo".
Step 5: Change the Filename
Next, change the filename to "cardata_figure.syx".
Step 6: Save the Flow
Press "Save". The tab header will change to "cardata_figure" and it will show no unsaved changes, indicating that your flow has been saved.
Step 7: Open the Saved Flow
Now let's open the saved flow. Select "Open" in the File menu and select the "cardata_figure.syx" file.
Step 8: Handling Multiple Tabs
You'll now see two tabs with "cardata_figure". You can close one of them.
