If you save the file within [Clip Studio] on [This iPad], you can save the work as a Clip Studio format file (.clip) or a work management file (.cmc).


Works (clip, cmc) saved in the app can be shared with other devices such as PCs and iPads using Clip Studio's Cloud Service.

Refer here for information on how to share your work using the Clip Studio Paint Cloud Service.


■ Autosave (Ver.2.3 or later)

From Ver.2.3 onwards, it is possible to automatically save data after a certain period of time.

If you want to change the settings, select Clip Studio Paint menu > Preferences in studio mode.

Select File and turn on Save at regular intervals to change the Save mode, Save interval, etc.

Save interval: You can set the time in 1 minute increments between 5 and 60 minutes.

Save mode: You can select Overwrite or Save recovery information.

In the default settings Overwrite is selected.

If you select Save recovery information, if Clip Studio Paint terminates unexpectedly, the canvas will be automatically restored from the restoration information the next time you start it.
