Rave offers two ways to save your work: Rave Projects, and Metadata.

Rave Projects

A "Rave Project" is a saved copy of a Rave session. When it is opened, it will exactly restore your Rave session as it was at the moment it was saved. Rave Project files have the file extension .rve

Saving a project

A Rave project can be saved by clicking the "Save Project to File" button on the Manage Tab. Note that since this is currently the only way to save a project, it is impossible to save a project so that it opens in full screen mode or with a tab other than the Manage Tab displayed.

The new project will be saved in a directory under your Default Rave Directory.


Loading a project

There are three ways to open a saved project:

  1. In Windows, if you associated the .rve file type with Rave during the Rave Installation process, then you can double click .rve files to open them. If MATLAB is not running, this will open MATLAB.
  2. In MATLAB, you can type raveopen('<path/name of .rve file>') to open the file. (You need to include the quotes, but not the <> brackets)
  3. In Rave, click the "Load Project from File" button on the Manage Tab to open a file browser and select a .rve file to open.

Developer Issues

If you are interested in developing Rave plugins, you may want to read Working with .rve files for important information related to ensuring your plugins are compatible with saving as a .rve file.


Working with Projects that require User-Supplied Functions

Important: If you save a Rave Project as a .rve file and would like to distribute it or move it to a different computer, you may need to include some additional files. The .rve file contains your data (so there is no need to also distribute any original data set files that you had loaded, but it does NOT contain the files for any functions that you loaded from the Model Tab. Read the help article for Function files created by Rave and be sure to include those files whenever you wish to distribute your .rve Rave Project file.

(A future update will put a list of these files in the same directory as the .rve file for easy reference)
