Restart Manager

Post by Pablo » Thu Aug 27, 2020 9:13 am

Restart Manager

- New feature: Added Restart Manager support. The Restart Manager is a standard feature of Microsoft’s Windows operating system. It can help applications maintain their data when an unexpected software error or crash occurs. Instead of shutting down abnormally, Restart Manager enables an application to perform an automatic save before it is terminated. Furthermore, it can re-invoke the application enabling it to restore its state from before the shutdown or crash.

WYSIWYG Web Builder now has built-in support for the Restart Manager by implementing an auto-save mechanism that performs the saving of the current project to a temporary file. If the application crashes due to an exception, it will be restarted and prompt the user to recover the auto-saved version if available.

Image


If you wish to disable this feature then go to Tools -> Options -> Backup -> Restart Manager

Image

Note:
Restart Manager support is only available in the 64-bit version!
