Canvas File Menu
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.
Import - imports an image file.
The supported file formats include:
- PNG with alpha
- XCF (though layers are not supported)
- PSD (though layers are not supported)
(it may support other formats as well) SIF (the synfig native format) is not supported.
Options - Bring up the Options dialog for the current project.
Close - Close the current project.
