The File menu has the following options:

Save - Saves the current project.

Use an extension of '.sifz' to save a compressed file (as of synfig 0.61.07). If you use .sif then the files tend to get pretty large. The best thing to do is not to use any '.' in the path at all, and then synfig will append .sifz (if it's new enough) or .sif (otherwise).

Save As - Saves the current project under a different name.

Again, use .sif or .sifz (synfig 0.61.07 and later) for synfig save files, or use a path without any '.' characters to get the default (compressed if supported).

Revert - Opens the version saved on disk. This will overwrite any unsaved changes.

CVS Update
CVS Commit

Import - imports an image file.

    • PNG with alpha

SIF (the synfig native format) is not supported.
