It is important to understand the difference between Saving and Exporting a simulation. “Saving, Exporting and Publishing are three different functions used for different purposes. Saving a simulation causes the program to save all of the information needed for a simulation to run on the computer where it was created. Exporting a simulation allows you to move the finished simulation to another computer that has Fire Studio installed, while still retaining the ability to edit the simulation.

Publishing (FS7 only) a simulation allows you to move it to another computer but locks the ability to edit the simulation.
