10 - Saving Profiles and Plans

I'm getting ready for when the newsletter goes out. I want to make sure that there is a tutorial for each of the major topics of SegPro. It's really unfair to new users when there isn't sufficient training resources. Very little of the software tools I buy have adequate training materials and it is really frustrating. I'm just trying to make mine is less frustrating.

I've got about three more tutorials to go.

Great tutorials. One suggestion for the plans and profiles tab is to allow the category selection to stay selected for the next time the tab is selected. I tend to stay in one category, and save several versions until I get it right. Just my 0.02. Dan

I'll add this request to my list. I'll be gone for a week (will be checking in daily) so don't look for it right away.
Ping me later if you don't see it.

Lloyd, is there a way to save the Profiles and plans to a server / Dropbox folder so they can be accessed by my computers in the Shop, office and on the road?
Or is this there and I am so new that I haven't found it?

Cliff there is an export function you can use and it will save it into you My Segment PRO directory. Take the file down to your shop computer and then do an import.

I go one step further and use FreeFileSync, on my two computers and sync my directories between the two computers over my home network.

Cool stuff this freefilesync as far as i see) i curious too about similar sync software, what do u think about syncing.net tool?

Looks nice if you need to sync to a phone or tablet. FreeFileSync is free
But syncing.net can also share outlook calendar without exchange that is really useful on almost all office jobs. As for me, i don't pay anything now, just testing it on a trial period.

I think to share outlook, email, contacts and calendar all you have to do is share / sync your outlook pst file. Free file sync can do that.
I'll have to give it a try

Hey all,

I ran into a problem yesterday where SegmentPro crashes when I try to open a plan after making changes to the species and pallet.

Any thoughts? It only affects a handful of plans.

Do you have a species in each of the 10 slots.
Segment PRO does not like it with a blank one.
Check all the species that you have specified and make sure they will open, in other words do to the directory and double click each species and it should open in paint or what ever program you specify.

OK, thanks for the tip. That really helped me to think it out. I solved the issue.

Turned out I had deleted a wood species that appeared in the affected plans "Saved Palette".

To figure this out, I deleted the "Saved Pallet", then attempted to open an affected plan again. After the crash, I brought up the app and reviewed the newly added "Saved Palette". There were no pictures where the missing species would have been.

Thanks again,

Brett

One of my first problems was to transfer a plan from my in house computer to the computer in the woodshop. So I greatly appreciated the tutorial on prifile and plan sharing. Thanks Loyd
