My Lumion file system is getting a little fat. I seem to be confuded about saving.

First Saving a file...can I save a file over a file using the same name?

Can I turn the autosave off?

How do I delete a file?...rather, pages and pages of useless files..(I play a lot)

Why do two different files end up identical in content after being saved as two seperate iterations?

Yes and no.  If you are working on a scene, you can save that scene with the same name, but you cannot save a new scene with the name of an older scene since you must enter a unique name for the new save.

I am not aware how to do this.  You can press F5 for a quicksave.

When you open the load scene screen, you can mouse over a scene icon to display a trashcan. Double-click the trashcan to delete the scene.  Alternatively, you can navigate to the My Documents/Lumion/Scenes folder and delete the .sva and .spr files for the selected scenes.

I don't understand the situation.  Could you rephrase your question or give an example?

Had you copy/pasted the original file before this happened? There is bug where if you do this and make changes without changing the name of one of them, the changes are saved to both files (though they will have different iterations)
