FS#1889 - Autosave fails for QCAD original cxf font location

Now I try the third time to post this .... :-( .... deleted by “wrong token”???????
However ...

Regarding to the online tutorial:

Opening a CXF Font for Editing

To load an existing CXF font file in QCAD to view and edit its glyphs, simply use the menu File > Open and choose the format filter “CXF Font Files (*.cxf)”. Then choose the font file you want to open. The fonts that come with QCAD are stored in directory “fonts” of your QCAD installation.

quote end

Editing the cxf font in the original QCAD font folder will lead to a error message triggered by the Autosave function:

File access error: “C:/Program Files/qcad-3.22.1-pro-win64/fonts\~~Husky_test_font.dxf”. Access is denied.
[15:34:58] Autosave failed: C:\Program Files\qcad-3.22.1-pro-win64\fonts\~Husky_test_font.dxf

Note: Windows will not save anything in a system folder and the process is terminated by windows.

Solution: Move the cxf font for editing from the QCAD folder to a unprotected folder like Documents/drawings.
After editing is done move it back to the QCAD font folder.

I can reproduce the permission problem when autosaving (makes sense...) but Windows does not terminate the process here (Windows 10 64bit).

Correct. ;-)
