Open
A click on "Open..." (shortcut [Ctrl + O]) opens a file browser where you can choose the WD project file to be loaded.

This opens a list of recent projects. Items from the list can be removed manually.

This opens the Windows File Explorer showing the folder where the current project is saved in.

Save
Click on save or use the shortcut [Ctrl + S] to save your WD project file.
If you choose this option, a folder will be created at the location you specified. Inside this folder, you will find the WD project file as well as a data-folder containing all images applied to different controls in WD, as well as a folder containing custom CSS templates if used. Without the extra folder, the data-folder will be saved at the same location as the project file if there is any such data used at the project.

Save as...
Use this option to save the current WD project file under a different name.
Please note: WD only asks you to save the current project file when exiting the application, there is NO AUTOSAVE.

Save copy
"Save Copy" creates a copy of the current project and saves it at the specified location while you keep working in the current file. This is especially useful when saving backup versions of your work.

Create Viewer Shortcut
This opens a dialog where you can choose to save a shortcut which would open the currently used Widget Designer version in Viewer Mode and load the current project. This option is only available if the project has been saved before. Optionally, you can set up a password for the Viewer Mode as described in the topic "Security Settings".

Security Settings
This allows to set up passwords for the Viewer Mode and general editing, see topic "Security Settings".

E.g.: Importing a single custom script button would import the page and the window as well, unless you define something else in the Import Settings.
