Hello,

 

when configuring a project with Atmel Start, it is an extensive task to do for a SAM-controller.
Therefore it would be nice to be able to save the settings having already done, and to finish configuration in a later session.
How is this possible?

This topic has a solution.

Yes. There are 2 ways to do this. When you restart the Atmel Start Webpage, it displays a button to "Restart Auto Saved Project". This will continue where you left off. You can also use the Export Tab at the top to Export your project to a directory. You can then you use the "Load File" button to load this saved project back in.

To all that are also interested to know how to change Atmel Start Project:
Now I found out the easiest way to do that:
In Atmel Studio 7: in Solution Explorer window, right klick on the project name (orange symbol!).
Now you can choose "Re-Configure Atmel Start Project" - that's it!

My problem with that solution is that this feature seems to break after a few iterations. I'll make changes and when I press "Generate project" it will crash Microchip Studio instead of successfully modifying the project. So it seems the best approach is to get as much right the first time as possible, which of course gets me back to simply being able to save START configurations.
