To Save Your Drawing
Ortelius is optimized for the latest Mac OS X, including “Autosave” and “Versions”. The OS X will periodically save your work for you. Choose File > Save… to manually save your file. Choose File > Duplicate to create a new file that is a copy of the current file. Alternatively, hold down the Alt/Option-key and choose File > Save As… to save your drawing as a new file.
Note, if you prefer not to use Autosave and Versions you can disable it under Ortelius > Preferences > Options.
To Save a Drawing as a Template
Templates are master documents that, when opened, provide a copy of the file as a new document. Template files can be used over and over again. To save a copy of a drawing file as a template for re-use, choose File > Save Copy As Template… from the main menu. Next time you open File > New From Template > My Templates you will see your saved template files.
To Manage "My Templates"
To access user-created My Templates files to rename, delete, or back-up your files, they are saved to a special folder. In Mac OS 10.7 and later, first click to select your template, then right-click the template and choose “Reveal In Finder”.
Alternatively, in Finder hold the OPTION-key down while choosing Go > Library in the main menu. Find the following folder:
~/Library/Application Support/com.mapdiva.ortelius/My Templates, where ~ is your home directory
