Setting up a new PC. Have been using Fences for years. Tried something new: I copied a spreadsheet I use nearly every day to a new Fence window, and it worked! Opened it, and that worked. But I made some temporary changes and did NOT save it. But when I returned to the icon in Fences the temporary changes were implemented. Went back to the original file under Windows and it was as original; changes not saved. So where is the temporary version saved? And can I make the icon in a Fence just point to the regular location and only update if I save?
Hello,Need to know what program you use to open your spreadsheet, Excel? When you said you copied to new Fence Window, is this a Portal or normal type Fence? And do you copy a physical File or create a shortcut link to the physical file?
ThanksBasj,Stardock Community Assistant.
Just found that the file is on the desktop, seemingly disconnected from the file in the original location. I found the saved version on the desktop. The icon in fences still opens the edited version, even after deleting the desktop icon. Looks like I need a link to the location, not a copy. I do not know how to do that.
Yes, Excel spreadsheet. Not sure about your other questions. I just did a Copy / Paste to get it onto the Fence. I don't know what you mean about a Portal. I'll try to make the shortcut; sounds like what I need.
Yes! Right clicked on the file and selected to make a shortcut and it works as I wanted it to. Thanks so much. Been using Fences for years and never thought of putting a Fence up that is just the spreadsheets and Word documents I use daily.
Great, I don't really sure what you did, but as long as it work for you.
As for the question on Portal Fences, I am sure you know what Portal Fences vs Normal Fences, yes?
