    • Job Backup Folder Chooser
    • Save Copy As
    • Save Copy As 2

Each of these options are explained below

Job Backup

Creates a copy of the current file with the date and time appended to it. Very useful when you're working on a big project as you can create a version every few minutes with one click.

Job Backup Folder Chooser

Sets the folder that Job Backup gadget writes to and must be ran first before using Job Backup.

Save Copy As

This allows you to save a copy of the current file without affecting the name of the file you're working on. Useful if you're about to head off in a new direction with the file you're working on

Save Copy As 2

Same as above but it maintains it's own folder location rather than using the default Aspire working directory.
