Fluid UI automatically saves your work both locally and online every few minutes as well as every time you click the preview button - there is no need to specifically save or manage projects.
The only way your data will be deleted is if you ask us to delete it. We store data for inactive accounts for up to a year. After a year of an account being inactive you will receive an email warning you that your account is going to be deleted. If the account is active it will not be deleted ever.

Copying projects in Fluid UI

Archiving projects in Fluid UI
How to archive a project
You can archive a project by:
Clicking Archive Icon in ‘Active Projects’
Clicking ‘Archive’ in Project Settings
Why archive projects?
Archive projects so you can start new ones if you don't have a pro account or if you’ve reached your project limit.
Keep your projects safe and make sure you don't delete them or overwrite them.
You can then manage your archived projects, delete or restore them in the future.
How to access archived projects
Go to Active projects and then use the filter in the search bar to find all of your archived projects.
Deleting Projects in Fluid UI
A project needs to be archived before it can be deleted. Follow the steps above to archive the project. Go to ‘Archived projects’ and click the bin to delete the project permanently.
Restoring projects in Fluid UI
Any version of a project can be restored though the ‘History’ section of the project menu. Older versions are stored for up to 2 weeks for all premium accounts, and for a limited period for free accounts.
Archived projects can be restored by going to the archived projects folder and clicking the restore button on the left.
You can also clone a whole project to make a backup. Sharing this version with a client will allow you to take feedback while continuing to work on the existing project.
Click on the home icon to access project options and settings.
From here you can:
Create new projects
Open and manage existing ones
Copy or clone projects
Manage your project's settings
Share your project
Print and export your project
Use project settings to:
Clone or copy projects

Change your project's device resolution
All of the common phone resolutions are listed, as well as several desktop/browser resolutions.
There is also a custom display size option. You can add in your own height and width here.
Selecting the correct resolution for the device you will be testing on will dramatically improve the quality and speed of the prototype.
You can also choose the orientation for the app you are designing.
Change your project's default gestures and transitions
Set the transition and gesture you want to have in your app. This will mean that each new link you create will automatically be set to the default transition and gesture you have chosen.
Some example gestures are tap, double tap and swipe.
Some examples of transitions are flip, slide, pop and fade.
You can also change the gestures and transitions for individual links.
Setting your splash screen and app icons in Fluid UI
You’ll find the options for uploading your own splash screen and icon in the project settings menu.
To access your project list, simply click into the home menu and then select ‘My projects…’

Each thumbnail will contain an overview of your project screenflow.
