Hello,
When using the Ardublock app, and I want to save my child's work, do I just hit the "SAVE" button? Will I be able to find the file afterwards if we close the app or turn off the computer? We need to show my child's work for school. What's the best way to show all the code that she's written? Right now, I can do a screenshot, but it only captures one page and not the whole code.
Thank you for your help,
Malisa

Hi Malisa!

Can you send me a screenshot of the ardublock version that you are using?  We have a couple versions out there, so just to want to make sure that I provide you the right instructions :).

Hi Malisa,

Thanks for the screenshot!  So sorry to hear that she lost her work :(.  But yes, you can just click "save", and you will be able to open the program again in the future.  Make sure to keep an eye on which folder you save it to as well as the name you give it so that you can find it later.

To open it later, you would just need to click on "open" and the go find the file.

Feel free to reach out with any other questions.  I'm here to help!

Best Regards,
Edward Li

Hi Edward,
Thanks for the reply! Here's a screenshot of the app. My daughter unfortunately lost all her code when our laptop's OS updated and the computer rebooted. So before she starts again, I want to make sure she knows how to save her work. Thanks for your help!

Hi again!

Also, if you want to send me the file that you save (it will be a .abp file), I can try to capture all the blocks for you to show off the code. You can also just try to move around within the workspace and take multiple screen shots.  Hope that helps!
