It happens to me many times that every time when I save my current model as a newer version and work on the new one, the measures I applied before are gone. It takes me more time to put the measures back from BCL library again and again, which is very time wasting and frustrating.

However, when I copy the file and folder with windows and rename, the measures are saved and the model functions normally. I wonder why it doesn't work the same for the 'save as' function?

If you move the OSM without also moving the accompanying directory of the same name, you won't only loose the measures in the workflow, you will also lose the weather file. You can choose SaveAs from the application and it will manage this for you. Or if you have to send someone your project, ideally zip up 'MyModel.osm' and the 'MyModel" directory.

I did choose SaveAs to create new copies but the measures are always missing, sometimes the weather files are missing too.
