What is an Heredis file?

Heredis creates data files (genealogies), files of tree charts and transmits data to third-party software for printing (documents).
Heredis files contain both genealogical data and media attached to the data and for this reason they take the form of a .hmw folder that contains the data file (with the extension .heredis) and the folder containing the media.

When you want to save your genealogy or exchange it with someone using Heredis, you can use the Heredis file format.

(PC) You will find it in the My documents/BSD Concept/Heredis/Heredis files. It is important that you DO NOT change anything inside this folder nor move it. Otherwise, it can compromise your genealogy file.

(MAC) You will find it where you chose when you created your new file. It is important that you DO NOT change anything inside this folder nor move it. Otherwise, it can compromise your genealogy file.

Inside this folder, the .bak file is the file used for the automatic saves. You can use it if your computer crashed and you didn’t save just before the crash.
