2.2.1 Restore points
When the very first map is created the restore point with the name “original” is created automatically. At any moment MapSend can be restored to this original installation by selecting the “original” restore point. This restore point is not removable.
At any moment another restore points can be created (with some comments if needed). At any moment MapSend can be backed up to the selected restore point, all maps created later than this restore point will be removed (in the case of “original’ restore point all custom maps will be erased). The restore points are accessible from the “Restore” menu. In this example (at the right) there are 2 restore points:
1) “original” restore point which turns MapSend to its original configuration and
2) “Map of Moscow, Russia” restore point.
Good practice is to create restore point when map is created and tested and you are fully satisfied with the results. Picture at the left shows dialog to create or delete restore points. It shows 2 existing restore points and one newly created Restore point with brief description. Please do not use paragraph (Enter) when you enter the description.
2.2.2 Step back
When “Create map” button is pressed before any processing of data the previous state is stored automatically, so if something went wrong or you do not like the drawing of your data simply press “step back” menu item and the MapSend will be restored to the previous state. Up to 6 step back operations are allowed. This operation is very similar to the common “undo” operation. The “Step back” menu item shows also current capacity of the “step back” stack. Picture at right shows menu indicating that 2 consequent ‘step back” operations are allowed. Note: step back operations are allowed even if AddMagMap was closed and then opened again, they work “permanently”.
Both “Restore points” and “step back” are different for different MapSends installed on your computer. They can be used at any moment when this specific MapSend is selected.
