View Full Version : Suggestion: Backup the .ptg file before overwriting it

I remember while using an old artrage version where the program crashed before fully saving my painting, causing me to lose my work. I think it might be a good idea to have a temporary file to write to before overwriting the main and maybe a one-project backup cache just for good measure. For the end user maybe Artrage could automatically give the user the option to try and load the last saved painting, but I think any artist would scramble over the technical headache just looking for a .ptg file called "backup". :cool:

ArtRage 5 actually does something like this behind the scenes, so a crash won't take the previous save with it. You can also turn on the 'auto backup' option in the preferences to keep a spare file of your previous save(s).
