When you save a Diamonds file with default settings, Diamonds renames the *.bsf-file to -.bs!- file. And creates a new *.bsf file from the current project. This is an efficient way to have a backup file. But it doesn’t work well with SharePoint (or OneDrive). One of the advantages of SharePoint is that it can keep track of file history. But because of the default saving procedure in Diamonds, that’s not possible as he keeps creating new files with every save.
Therefor we’ve added an additional saving procedure which is suitable for SharePoint.
