What does “Save Small” mean, anyway? I never noticed the option in R5, though I see now that it’s there too.
I’m also baffled by the file “Save As” dialog opening when I click “Save” on an existing file? Apparently because it was R5 (as are ALL my existing/old Rhino files) and I’ve modified it using R6, it is “suggesting” that I use “Save As” instead of “Save” to give me the chance to… uh…??? So I save it as R5 and get this:
When I click ‘Help’, I get this page, which gives me no clue about whether or not I’m actually losing anything specific to R6 in this file?
For now, I’d like to keep my Rhino files in R5 format so a friend can view them but it looks like I need to save two copies every time, one R5 and one R6? After saving as R5 (but not R6), I try to open a different Rhino file and am prompted again! Insisting, I guess, that it won’t be happy until I save it as R6 and strongly suggesting that I’ll regret it if I don’t?
Finally, I see a new checkbox (checked) in the save dialog box: “Save plugin data”. What happens if it’s not checked?
R6 might be unequivocally great for anyone who starts with it, but for those who have a collection of R5 models and/or work with others who have no plans to upgrade, the transition to R6 has been brutal so far.
