The "File..." button displays the File Operations menu, which gives access to all of AutoMathic's file-related operations. These operations let you save, reuse, and review your work in a number of ways.
|Save Transcript||Save the contents of the output area to a named file|
|Save Algebra||Save equations and/or variables to a named file|
|Load Algebra||Reload a "save" file, or run a scripted calculation|
|View File||View the contents of any user-accessible file|
|Manage Files||Permanently delete any user-created file|
Save the entire contents of the output area to a named file. (Entering a blank filename cancels the operation, and the transcript is automatically given the ".htm" file extension)
Use the Save Transcript option to preserve interesting or important AutoMathic sessions for later review.
Save equations, variables, or both to a named file. (Entering a blank filename cancels the operation, and the file is automatically given the ".eqn" file extension)
Use the Save Algebra option to preserve (and later reuse) interesting or useful equations and/or variable values to a file.
Load a saved algebra file, or run a scripted calculation.
AutoMathic includes a library of scripted calculation files that use all of the Command-mode features to perform many useful, task-oriented calculations.
You can also create your own custom scripts on your computer and import them into AutoMathic using iTunes File Sharing:
View the contents of any user-accessible file, such as saved transcripts, saved algebra, and scripted calculation files.
Permanently delete any user-created file. If you select a file from the list, you will be asked for confirmation before the file is actually deleted.
Deleted files can not be recovered, so use this option carefully! Application files are not included in the list, so the program's built-in functionality cannot be affected by managing files.
