Saving & Loading

Loading Projects

When Zrythm launches, it will ask you to select a project to load from a list of recent projects, or to create a new one.

When you select a project and click Apply, Zrythm will load that project.

Creating Projects

In the menu above, if you select Create new project, Zrythm will ask you for a template to use for creating the new Project.

Tip

A blank template is available, but you can create your own templates by copying a project folder to the Templates directory in the Zrythm installation path.

Once a template (or blank) is selected and you click Apply, Zrythm will ask you for a parent directory to save the Project in and a title for the Project.

Once you accept, the new Project will be set up and you will be ready to go.

Saving Projects

Saving works as you would expect: Save As… will save the Project in a new location and Save will save the Project in the previous location.

Note

When saving projects, Zrythm expects you to give it a directory

Automatic Backups

Zrythm has an option to auto-save the current project as a back-up. When launching Zrythm and selecting to load your project, Zrythm will let you know if there are newer back-ups of that project and ask you if you want to load them instead.

The auto-save interval can be changed (or disabled) in the preferences window.

Tip

The backups are saved in the project’s directory, under backups
