Save scribes on your computer and online

You have two different options when saving your scribe: Locally to your computer or online to your cloud folder. This article will explain these options.


Please note: There were some key changes to the way saving works in v3.7 of VideoScribe. If you are using an earlier version of the software the features on this page will not be available to you unless you upgrade to the latest version of VideoScribe. If you are using an older version the instructions for saving are available here.


This article simply shows you how to save your scribe project, it does not tell you how to create a video file. If you want to turn your project into a video please see Render and Share your scribe .


Step 1: Click the 'Save As' icon (A)


Step 2: Choose your save option:


Option 1.  Save to ‘My computer’ (B)

This is a chosen location on your computer. 

Click the option ‘Select file location’ (C) to choose the location on your computer to save your project. You will see an explorer window (Windows) or a finder window (Mac) where you can choose your save location and enter in a file name for your scribe. 


Once you have chosen your location and named your scribe, select ‘Save’ (D).


Once you have made an initial save of your project, you can then continue saving your project to the same file location by clicking the ‘Save’ button (E).


Option 2.  Save your scribe to the cloud (online) (F).

They are stored on our servers so you can access them from within VideoScribe on any computer. This option is useful if you plan to access your project from multiple locations (e.g home/school). You can find your online scribes  in the ‘Online Scribes’ folder on the project screen when you log into VideoScribe. 

Enter in a file name for your scribe (G) and then select ‘Save Scribe’ (H).
