Need help on how to re-save file , eg test.ggb in laptop designated folder without assigning new file name after putting new update on file. Apparently I am using "export' method in web based Geogebra. to save file. but if i have to save same file 10 times theni need to assign 10 diffeent file names!


thanks

If you don't want to keep some of the older versions of a file you can use the same name and overwrite the old one as any other file in e.g. Word or Excel, can't you? And if you want to keep them all, you can name them file1.ggb, file2 etc. or am I not understanding what you mean?

no, i dont want to keep older file, instead just want to save latest updated file and use same file name like words or excel..


but geogebra won't allow to use same file name , instead they will change original file name eg from test.ggb to test1.ggb when i export them in saving.

thanks

just tested it. As you say when exporting a file is saved in 'Downloads' and at the same time opens in the desktop version of GeoGebra. The files in Download indeed get another suffix name (1) etc, but when opened in the desktop version, you can overwrite and save and/ore rename as you wish. Doing so you can keep in the folder you chose just the files you wish to keep with the name(s) you want. Afterwards you only have to clean up the files in the Download folder, but that's something you regularly have to do.

When using the online version you can just save your files to your account (online). Then you can download just the latest version.


If you want to avoid online saving you can use either the desktop version or the Windows Store app.
