intermediate saving the drawing


New member
hello all;

I am using PRO/E wildfire. I will like to know is there any possiblity
for making settings in pro E like in word or Auto cad to save the
drawings automatically afters a cetrain period of time to avoid the
data loss of unsaved drawings because of sudden shut down. Also is
there possiblity to make proe to notify oyu if you have not saved the
drawing and are exiting out.

thank you
