We just released Bootstrap Studio 4.3.7 with the long awaited auto backup feature. The app will now periodically take snapshots of your design and save them to your hard drive, minimizing the chance of lost work. You can control the frequency of backups, how many copies to keep per design and how long to keep them.
In addition, we added the following features which were suggested in the forums:
- Labels can now be exported as Start/End comments.
- Copying multiple files between designs is now supported.
- UX Improvements: better drag indicator, click to collapse sidebars, export notification.
Looking forward to your feedback! The next release is going to bring favicons, SEO and progressive web app functionality.November 23, 2018 at 12:22 pm #13405JoMember
Thanks for all the updates! Most especially for the copying of multiple files between designs!
I have a question on the comments though:
I use comments to recognize what block is for what, but I don’t want to export “all” those as comments as that would be a ton of comments that wouldn’t be needed. I prefer to use comments for only certain things. Will we ever get the ability to add comments manually? This update is a start and will be good for many people I’m sure, but many of us would like to do them ourselves.November 23, 2018 at 12:32 pm #13406RuprectMember
Thank you for this update – Appreciate the Labels export and the export progress!

Thanks for the feedback!
@jo we decided to leave comments for the next release in order to ship auto backup sooner, but they’re coming. For both HTML and CSS.November 23, 2018 at 1:04 pm #13408JoMember
Awesome to hear Martin!November 23, 2018 at 2:36 pm #13409
Hi Martin !
This update is really useful ! thanks for supporting comments on export.
I’ve a small suggestion regarding the autobackup : i’ve had to change the directory where they are saved, but after the change, the already made backups are not moved from the older to the selected directory. I Think it is better to move the files to the directory selected by the user.
And as you see in my screenshot, after changing the directory, the information reported by BootStrapStudio is wrong :

@larsene, the path displayed in the Backups dialog is actually that of the original design and not of the backup, as that would make it easier to distinguish between backups. For example if you have two designs with the same name, you can look for backups of one of them by typing in its whole path. Hope this clears up any confusion that may have arisen.
As for the directory, unfortunately for technical reasons backups can’t be moved.November 23, 2018 at 4:30 pm #13412Chris HackwoodMemberValued
Thanks devs 😀November 23, 2018 at 4:43 pm #13414
Thanks Gabriela !
Indeed, this is a great update to BootStrap Studio ! and many thanks for the ability to export the comments. Really, really useful !November 24, 2018 at 9:39 pm #13421PrintninjaMember
Question: are the backup settings site specific or application specific? In other words, does each site get its own backup location, frequency, etc?
Also, shouldn’t there be an option to never delete backups?November 28, 2018 at 2:15 am #13433December 11, 2018 at 5:14 am #13531r_obertiMember
If it is true for this new version than provide us with a download link!December 11, 2018 at 8:09 am #13533
