Reply to: How to set the ‘Ask before saving’ value through API

Hi,

I tried to set the maximum time between save for XMetaL Author using the ini file.

I have added the following line into the xmetal55.ini file located in the XMetaL Author Program File directory:
max_time_between_saves=10

After saving the .ini file, i close XMetaL Author and start it again. I then check the value through Tools > Option > File
And i found that the Save after for minutes is still set to 1000.

I then tried to set the Save after for minutes to 99, click Apply and close XMetaL. When i open XMetaL again, the value is correctly showing as 99.

I also notice that the ini file has not been modified after i set this value.

Is it possible to save this the max_time_between_saves value into ini file? If not, is it possible to automatically set this value?
