Why does DAZ Studio 4.5 ask me for a file name every item I save a scene?
When saving a scene DAZ Studio 4.5 now looks at the user information entered in the application (Edit>Preferences>General) and compares it with the information in the file. If they match (and aren’t both empty) then the save will not ask for a name, if they don’t match (or are both empty) then you will be asked for a file name every time you try to save the file. This was done to reduce the chances of accidentally overwriting content files, while allowing the user’s own files to be saved with a key press.
To enter user data go to Edit>Preferences>General and click the Edit button under the Authorship Information box. This information will be added to all files you save, so if you plan to share scenes or presets (especially with the public at large) make sure you are entering only the details you are willing to make public.
