Save forces Save As...

  • Okay, seems like Git is smarter than I thought, I was able to work around this by:

    1. Git commit the 1.7.0 state of my project.
    2. Open the project in 1.7.1.
    3. File > Save As and save to your desktop with the same filename as the project currently has elsewhere.
    4. In your File Explorer, browse to your original file location.
    5. Delete the contents of the project folder (be sure not to delete the `.git` folder if you can see hidden files)
    6. Copy the contents of the updated project folder on your desktop.
    7. Paste the contents into the previous project folder location.
    8. Open the project file in Lens Studio.
    9. File > Save
    10. Git commit the updated version of your project - there should be minimal file updates/changes.

    IDEA: Add some sort of warning message/dialog explaining that you will need to perform a Save As... because the project has been upgraded to support a new version of Lens Studio.
