The buttons to the right of the Save in field allow you to create new folders and change the view of the file list.


File List

The File list displays files in the current directory, which is listed in the Look in field. The File of type field controls the display of the file list. For example, if DAT Golden Software Data (*.dat) is listed in the Files of type field, only DAT files appear in the files list.


File Name

The File name field shows the name of the selected file. Type a path and file name into the box to save the file with a a specific name.


Specify a File Type

The Files of type field controls the display of the file list. For example, if Voxler Network Files (*.VOXB) is listed in the Files of type field, only .VOXB files appear in the file list. To see all files in the directory, choose All Files (*.*) from the Files of type list. Click a file to place the file name in the File name field.


The Files of type field shows the file format to be exported. To change the file format, click the down arrow and select the file type from the list. All Files (*.*) displays all files in a directory. Voxler allows .VOXB files to be saved with the File | Save As command.  To create other file types, use the File | Export or File | Save Data commands.


Export files by typing a name into the File name field and selecting a file type from the Save as type field. For example, typing MYIMAGE in the File name field and choosing BMP Windows Bitmap (*.bmp) from the Save as type drop down menu results in MYIMAGE.BMP. The extension is automatically added. If a file extension is typed in the box along with the file name, the file type is determined by the typed extension. For example, if MYIMAGE.TIF is typed in the File name box, the file saves as a .TIF regardless of what is set in the Save as type field.


Save or Cancel

Click Save to close the Save As dialog and export the specified file. An Export Options dialog will likely appear. Click Cancel to close the dialog without exporting the file.


Specify the desired format in the Save as type list. The formats displayed in the list are dependent on the type of data being exported.
