audio design tool
Is there a way of saving synth designs created in audio tool.
I've found that with complex projects if I copy and paste from a program into the web based design tool not all connections are copied over. Sometimes I lose as much as 80% of connection 'wires'. This makes life extremely difficult if I'm wanting to work on several designs at once, because I have no confidence in my ability to switch between projects without losing half my design. I've had to resort to screen shots of the design before starting a new one so that I can at least rebuild my designs from the screenshot  which is very tedious and time consuming.
Surely there must be a way to save designs from the design tool itself, instead of relying on pasting from the Arduino editor?
BTW I'm on Mac osx not Windows.

Here is an example of what I mean, I've got to rewire the entire circuit  with this only being part of it, because I spent a bit of time on another project.
This is directly after pasting code into the import dialogue on the design tool.

Actually, that is the only way.

Maybe there's a bug in the design tool?
Can you give me a full screenshot (or multiple screenshots as tiles if bigger than the forum's 1280 pixel limit) and the exported text? Presumably the text has everything you did in the design tool, right? If it's not importing, the exact text and a screenshot of what it should look like after importing will give me a way to start testing for whatever's wrong.

Also need to know which browser (and version). I do have a Mac here for testing, if it turns out the problem is Mac specific.

apologies, I've been away for a while, so not had a chance to upload all of this.
As an experiment I tried pasting the export code directly from the export dialogue in the design tool into the notes app.
Then pasting from notes back into the import dialogue in the Audio design tool  but even bypassing the arduino editor like this, the results were exactly the same.
I seem to get this happening with any large project i build in the audio editor  not just this particular project.
This is a screen shot of the full audio circuit:
And the same circuit after pasting back into the audio edit tool:
This is the warning box i get when pasting into the audio design tool:
And this is the exported code:

Edited to add:
This only happens when pasting code back into the audio design tool, there is no problem when pasting into Arduino code
