Online Editor Features

New

New is a feature that creates a new blank project in the editor. It will not overwrite the previous project, as it is a separate project in My Stuff.

Saving

Save now saves all of the changes made to the project since the previous state. If Internet connection is available, the save will be updated to the server properly; otherwise a message will appear near the top-right saying "not saved: no network connection".

Save as a copy generates a totally separate, identical project to the one opened in the editor.

Go to My Stuff takes one to their my stuff page.
