-===== Project Autosaving ======+In MagicPlot 2.8 you can copy and paste objects (Tables, Figures, Fit Plots, Folders, Curves, Axes Boxes, etc.) between different opened projects. When you copy and paste plots or curves, the Table(s) with plotted data will also be copied. Confirmation dialog window will be shown in such case:

-===== Changing Table in Curve Data Dialog ​=====+====== Project Autosaving for Recovery ======
  
-===== Multi-column Plot Legend =====+MagicPlot 2.8 automatically saves a copy of opened project to a temporary file every 15 minutes (the interval can be changed in Preferences). The autosaved file may be used for recovery after a failure: electric power problem, operating system failure. If the recovery file exists MagicPlot will show a prompt to load the autosaved version when opening the Project.
