The backup/restore feature allows you to make a backup file of your work in FreeStyler in one file. You can use this feature to back up your shows and/or use it to copy your work to other computers easily instead of copying all the data yourself.
TIP: The backup feature copies all content in the chases, cues, and location folder. You can make a subfolder in one of the mentioned folders and add the desired files. For example: make a subfolder “MIDI settings” in the Location folder, and add the the exported midi settings here. Now the files will be included in the backup file.
TIP: If you use different fixtures for each location, you have to open each location in FreeStyler and make a backup. This is especially important if you have made a change or have created any fixture files for a given location.
OBS: the restore feature will overwrite all the existing files in the FreeStyler directory which has the same name as the files in the backup including configurations.
You find the backup/restore function in the “File” menu of FreeStyler
Now FreeStyler is creating the backup file.
FreeStyler restores from the backup file.
When you restart FreeStyler, it will start in the location you had open when you did the backup.
