Storing in the cloud

There is no need to explicitely save a construction in sketchometry. This happens automatically. sketchometry stores all your constructions in the gallery. (From a technical point of view, the local storage of the browser is used)

Import and export of constructions

Constructions can be exchanged between different devices though cloud services. To upload a construction into the cloud, click on Export in the gallery.

Download a construction from the cloud to your tablet or computer. Click on Import in the gallery.

To be able to do this, you have to login at your cloud service provider and allow sketchometry to upload/download files. This is described below.

After the login, you can access your sketchometry constructions in the cloud.
