Table 4.2. File Menu
|File Menu Entry||Explanation|
|New Object File||Opens a "file" dialog that lets you name your new object file. Object file names end with ".fwb". In general, you should create a new directory for your object files.|
|Open...||Opens a standard "file" dialog that lets you select an existing file. The file dialog, by default, only looks for files that end in ".fwb".|
|Open Recent||Contains a submenu listing recently opened object files.|
|Save||Saves the current file.|
|Save As...||Opens a "file" dialog that lets you save the object file under a new name.|
|Close||Closes the current object file, but does not exit the program.|
|Properties||Opens a dialog indicating properties of the current file, including revision control information (if applicable.) (Program preferences are in the Edit menu.)|
|Add File to RCS||This menu item adds the object file to reversion control. See Section 7.7 for a detailed explanation.|
|Commit||Commits current changes to RCS. (This option is grayed out if the file has not already been added to RCS.) See Section 7.7 for a detailed explanation.|
|Discard||Discards current changes. (This option is grayed out if the file has not already been added to RCS.) See Section 7.7 for a detailed explanation.|

Once a library is exported, you can import it into another instantiation of Firewall Builder. This is particularly useful in Enterprise settings that have multiple Firewall Builder workstations and administrators.|
